2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster - Driven Review and Impressions

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster - Driven Review and Impressions

The drop-top track-bred GT R Roadster is not a vehicle you should take lightly

The Mercedes-AMG GT R is a real looker with its long nose and swooped back cabin. Just looking at it evokes all the feelings you’d expect from a precision-built, six-figure machine that bears both the AMG and Mercedes logo. It’s an impressive car, to say the least, but what happens when you get behind the wheel of one of the 750 GT R Roadsters that will be produced? Does it still evoke that same high-end sports car feeling? Does it still feel like it’s ready for the track from the moment you sit down in the seat? Does it drive any different compared to the coupe it is based on? Well, we spent a week with the AMG GT R, and we’ve set out to answer all those questions and more.

Project 107 is a Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC AMG On Steroids With A Racing Heart

This restomod is so special, it broke cover wearing a camo livery

The overflow of Porsche restomods of the last handful of years has us yearning for something different and this ’80s Mercedes-Benz SL with wide, race car-esque arches and seriously fat tires that wrap equally generous rims is the perfect antidote to the Porsche restomod craze. Built by Mechantronik, it’s been seen burning rubber throughout Germany and we think it may just be one of the coolest cars of its kind out there also because, well, we don’t really see resto-modded Mercs all that often.

Mercedes Just Gave the AMG GT More Power as the GT S Trim is Discontinued

Mercedes introduces an updated AMG GT, discontinues GT S trim

Mercedes-Benz just unveiled the beefed-up AMG GT Black Series model, its most powerful V-8 sports car to date. But the base AMG GT is also getting a bit of extra attention with a more powerful engine and some additional features and tech.

The introduction of the updated AMG GT also marks the end of the line for the AMG GT S trim, so Mercedes basically merged two entry-level models into one.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series

A more powerful AMG GT R? Yes please!

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is the range-topping version of the AMG GT sports car. Unveiled in 2020, the Black Series model arrives six years after Mercedes-Benz debuted the AMG GT lineage, which now includes five road-legal models and two race-spec versions. The Black Series slots at the top of the range, featuring a race-inspired exterior and the most powerful iteration of the 4.0-liter V-8 engine yet. Heavily upgraded and capable of 720 horsepower, the Black Series’ mill is also the most powerful production V-8 from AMG. The Black Series model is also the most expensive from the lineup and the only Mercedes-Benz that costs in excess of €300,000.

Amazing Car for Sale: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss

Surely one of the more insane automotive creations to come from the stoic Germans at Mercedes-Benz

Nostalgia is a strong tool in marketing and when you’re Mercedes-Benz you’ve got a huge bank of memories to fall back on, a seemingly endless catalog of legendary models and memorable milestones and otherwise remarkable achievements, some of the more incredible having been achieved in the world of racing.

Among Mercedes’ finest days in the sun on the circuits of the world is the day when a journalist accompanied a then-up-and-coming driver to win a road race in Italy. The men were Denis Jenkinson and Stirling Moss and the car was the 300 SLR. 45 years after that victory for the ages in the Mille Miglia, Mercedes-Benz paid tribute to Moss, to Jenks, and to the SLR by building this, the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss.

New Reports Say the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Will Debut in July

New Reports Say the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Will Debut in July

The long-awaited AMG GT Black Series will debut with more than 700 horsepower!

The long awaited Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, the range-topping version of the company’s flagship sports car, could make its debut in July 2020. Spotted testing on public roads since late 2019, the beefed-up coupe could break cover in less than a month. The news comes from MB Passion Blog, which also speculates that the Black Series model could debut at the Chengdu Motor Show in China.

The event is scheduled to happen on July 24, 2020. Although it seems unlikely for Mercedes-Benz to introduce a high-profile sports car at a somewhat unknown event, the Germans could take advantage of the Chengdu Motor Show in absence of major auto events in Europe and the United States this time of year.

If You Can’t Wait to See the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, This Rendering Should Fill the Void

It’s the meanest and most powerful AMG GT yet

The Mercedes-AMG GT lineup has evolved into a full-blown nameplate that includes no fewer than four different models, all backed by convertible variants. Mercedes also builds two race-spec cars for the GT3 and GT4 categories. But the German firm isn’t planning to stop here. A Black Series model is also underway and it will slot at the top of the range, just above the AMG GT R model. This new coupe should debut by the end of 2020, but this new rendering gives us a good idea of what to expect.

AMG GT Silver Echo: A Modern Mercedes SLR Rendering That Pays Tribute to Stirling Moss

AMG GT Silver Echo: A Modern Mercedes SLR Rendering That Pays Tribute to Stirling Moss

Based on the Mercedes-AMG GT

Legendary racing driver Sir Stirling Moss passed away on April 12, at the age of 90. The Brit became an icon in the 1950s when he raced in Formula One and competed in major series that included the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 12 Hours of Sebring, and Mille Miglia. He won important races for a variety of automakers, including the 1955 Mille Miglia in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. In the same year, he raced the iconic Mercedes W196 in Formula One. This collaboration was revived in 2009 when Moss helped the Germany company create the limited-edition Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss. 11 years have passed since then, and auto design Costas Phouphoullides rendered a modern version of that car to pay one final tribute to Moss.

Sweet German Baby Jesus Is the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Powerful

It’s going to have quite a leg up on it’s closest younger brother

It hasn’t even been a week since the most recent round of spy shots for the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series started circulating the net. So far, we’ve learned precious little about the car that will be the last entry to the first-gen AMG GT and serve as the flagship model outside of the bonkers Project One Hypercar. All that has changed, though, thanks to a new report from Double Apex, a South African magazine that claims the AMG GT Black Series will have more than 700 horsepower.

2021 Mercedes-AMG E 53 4MATIC+

Mild AMG model carries over with similar power, updated looks

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 is a facelifted version of the performance sedan that sits between the regular E-Class and the AMG E63. The sedan that replaced the old AMG E43 arrived less than a couple of years ago, but Mercedes-Benz decided to upgrade it alongside the standard E-Class. The facelift adds restyled front and rear sections and some new tech, but the drivetrain remains unchanged.

Renntech Can Push the Mercedes-AMG A45 Up to Nearly 600 Horsepower

Renntech once again takes the Mercedes-AMG A45 from pocket-rocket to ballistic missile

Dealing with the car industry for so long, we learned the only valuable lesson one needs to know when it comes to tuning: some people will never be satisfied with a stock car’s oomph, be it a fully-fledged performance vehicle created by one of the world’s most revered divisions around the most powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine currently in series production… in the world.

German tuner Renntech, who’s been tweaking AMGs since 1989, had a stab at the new Mercedes-AMG A45 which, by everyone’s standards, was doing just fine in stock form. The result sees the lava-hot hatch churn out up to around 600 horsepower, but lighter tuning kits are also available if you don’t need that kind of ego boost.
