New Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO Headed To The LAAS

If you subscribe to your favorite European carmaker’s news- or press release feed, you’ll have noticed they almost inadvertently always include fuel consumption numbers and CO2 emissions at or near the very top of the text.

The is the case with the official announcement that the new Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO will make its world premiere appearance at next week’s Los Angeles Auto Show. Between you and we, those interested in this car don’t care about its fuel numbers…

Anyhow, the limited-edition GT R PRO model has received numerous modifications with the sole purpose of delivering even more racetrack performance. Visually, from the pictures, we can see more aggressive aerodynamics and it should go along with a slight bump in power from the handcrafted AMG biturbo 4.0-litre V8. Currently, it produces 577-horsepower and 516 lb.-ft. of torque – we’re think a cool 600 would do nicely.

We also expect the car to shed a few pounds, or kilograms, and be faster all around. A second attempt at the Nürburgring lap record, perhaps?
