The GT R will benefit from a performance increase of 74 horsepower and 37 lb-ft more torque providing for a total power output of 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. A larger turbocharger has been added to the AMG GT R and the very reliable seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission is also present. Performance stats for the Green Hell Magno AMG GT R are downright dizzying. Expect to launch from standing position to 60 mph in exactly 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph.
