After just 4 years, Mercedes-Benz has refreshed the AMG GT for the 2020 model year.   A new programmable coil over setup allows for more agile handling depending on track conditions.  As in professional motorsport, the driver is not only able to set the spring preload length mechanically, but can now also adjust the compression and rebound of the dampers.  Both axels get adjustable torsion bars with carbon fiber up front and hollow-tube steel in back.

The engines options are:

Model Year 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Mercedes-AMG GTC Mercedes-AMG GTR/ Mercedes-AMG GTRPRO
Displacement 3982 cc 3982 cc 3982 cc
Output 469 hp at 6000 rpm 550 hp at 5,750- 6,750 rpm 577 hp at 6,250 rpm
Peak torque 465 lb-ft @ 1,700 – 5,000 rpm 502 lb-ft @ 1,900 – 5,750 rpm 516 lb-ft at 1,900 - 5,500 rpm
Acceleration 3.9 s 3.6 s 3.5 s
Top speed 189 mph 196 mph 198 mph

Says Mercedes-Benz of the GT Pro, 



"The AMG GT embodies the core of our brand, "Driving Performance," in a unique way. At its debut four years ago, it not only turned the heads of customers and sports car enthusiasts, but also created new dimensions in the competitive environment. In order to continue this success story, we have now equipped it with numerous innovations from the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe and added a new limited-edition model: No other current production Mercedes- AMG is as close to motor racing as the new AMG GT R PRO. A lot of experience from our current GT3 and GT4 motorsport activities entered into its development.

The agile responses to all driver commands and the overall performance now deliver even more of that incomparable feeling that our racing drivers experience on the track,"


We can't wait to try one.

The R and Pro models should have more power, I don't know why they limit torque to 516, when this car could be 600 hp and 627 lb-ft like the S63, unless there is crazy wheel spin, but I think they could up the torque on those top models.

It is cool though that they have a near race version of the car for the track enthusiasts.  7:04 Nurburgring time on the Pro, but maybe it could break the 7 minute barrier with more torque!
