Mercedes-AMG releases a video teaser of the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO just hours ahead of its debut set for the Los Angeles Motor Show. The high-performance model is a limited edition of the GT R, with elements drawn from the GT3 and GT4 race cars.

The video shows the car wrapped in camouflage, but we get to see that the modifications are there, indeed. A redesigned front bumper and a massive spoiler are placed at the opposite ends of the vehicle. Various elements that enhance aerodynamics, with elements linked to the rear diffuser and stretching upwards are set to highlight its aggressive nature.

The track-focused design continues inside, as the cabin gets leather sports seats and a four-point harness. What draws attention is the roll cage, confirming that we’re not dealing with an average street car.

Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO confirmed for LA debut

“It will deliver more race track performance.” That is all the Mercedes representatives ever told about their latest creation. The video releases a few figures, claiming a fuel consumption of 12.4 l/100 km/h (18.9 mpg) and combined CO2 emissions of 284 g/km.

The standard GT R is powered by the company’s 4.0-liter V8 with 577 horsepower. A speed-speed dual clutch transmission delivers power to the axles. The GT R flashes from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, going up to a top speed of 320 km/h. Most probably, the GT R PRO will receive the same engine with a power tweak.
