Official Mercedes-AMG GT R teased

We know Mercedes-AMG has been cooking up a hardcore version of its GT supercar.

And after various sightings of it tearing around the ‘Ring in camouflage we’ve now been treated to photos of it in undress.

Teaser images and video of the GT R leaked overnight, confirming the car will bring to production various upgrades seen on the mule. These include a wider front bar, more vents, and a relatively subtle wing.

It suitably ties in with AMG’s video campaign titled “Beast of the Green Hell”, but will also help it be attention grabbing as possible when it debuts at the GoodWood festival in a couple weeks.

Expect full details to be revealed from Lord March’s driveway this coming June 24.
