This is the first time ever the newly launched beast of the Green Hell was spotted on public roads. The Mercedes-AMG GT R made quite an appearance in Belgium.
The Mercedes-AMG GT R fireball with 585 HP and 700 Nm of torque was exhibited in a pop-up store in Knobbe Heist for a single day and than fired up to be loaded on a trailer and moved on for further promotional shows.
People gathered around to watch the domesticated greenest and meanest beast with 20-inch 10-spoke light alloy wheels, being loaded into a truck with extreme precision, as if it was of the most fragile glass. The driver moved with the speed of a snail, inch by inch, careful not to cause any damage to the Green Hell Magno paint job, nor to the front active aero elements. People were anxious to see more of the AMG monster that was said to look and drive like hell, hitting 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 318 km/h. But none of that was on display, so their patience was put to the test and eventually disillusioned.
The furious roar of the V8-powered GT R animal made the audience simply speechless and caused quite a stir, even though there was no power display in the tiny municipality of West Flanders. The car transported to and from Belgium was the one exhibited at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 24th, the day it first came into the world. Only three Mercedes-AMG GT Rs were built so far. The executives in Affalterbach have planned to only sell 2,000 such street-legal racers.
