Watching the new Mercedes-AMG GT RR howling and announcing its debut is a delightful experience. As a racecar enthusiast, the sound takes me right in the middle of a racing competition giving me a tremendous adrenaline pump. If you really want to see it in action, gear up for the Japan’s Super GT series which will take place at the Okayama International Circuit.
Inspired from Mercedes Benz 300SL W194 and based on Mercedes AMG GT3, the GT RR houses a 6.3-liter, naturally aspirated V8 borrowed from the Mercedes SLS, giving it an authority to rip the race track apart in no time.
By the looks it surely seems to have the perfect aerodynamics to achieve the mind-boggling speed. Let’s wait and see how it performs in the race.
