The Mercedes-AMG GT R is a SAVAGE BEAST!!!

Added on Dec 17, 2016

Supercar Test Drives


The test drive I have been most excited for all year has arrived, the Mercedes-AMG GT R on Portimao race circuit! In the same week we hear that the Beast of the Green Hell set an astonishing record 7:10 laptime at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, it's time to have a go myself both on road and track.

With the added personal interest due to my AMG GT R being on order for delivery during 2017, it's a perfect opportunity to go fully over the car in extensive detail. I've attempted to structure the video to get the main points in the first period followed by a more detailed look as we progress through.

There is no question that the 4l BiTurbo V8 beast is seriously capable but I'm also blown away by the sense of occasion and experience being behind the wheel. This is a savage beast!
