Mercedes-AMG just unveiled the new GT R Pro last fall, but the Affalterbach tuner is currently dealing with the next called the performance ladder, a model for which has been found.
2021 Mercedes-AMG GT R Evo Spy Shots
The prototype is for the car everyone, including AMG, is calling the Black Series. However, there are rumors it may be labeled something else.
One possibility is GT R Evo. The Evo name in this circumstances is originated from a prospective Evo, brief for Evolution, upgrade set for AMG’s GT-based GT3 race car. Unlike competitors, AMG is yet to introduce an Evo set for the GT3. However, one may be coming for the 2020 motorsport season. The new GT road car being developed here is also due out in 2020, likely as a 2021 model.
The prototype is based upon the current GT R but with noticeable distinctions. For instance, the central exhaust pipe normally found on the GT R has been eliminated. Rather, there are two makeshift exhaust pipelines, one on either side of the back. Anticipate these to be flanking a large rear diffuser similar to the one on the GT3 race car in the last car.
It’s likewise difficult to miss out on the much more aggressive aerodynamic mods aimed at increasing downforce. There are the new splitters at the front and a much bigger wing at the rear. We also understand the tester features a roll cage and a lightweight, plexiglass rear windscreen.
If we were to danger a guess, there would be weight-saving mods and race-bred suspension, too.
2021 Mercedes-AMG GT R Evo Engine
While the GT3 race car runs AMG’s older 6.3-liter V-8, the new GT road car will likely pack under the hood the familiar 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. There are rumors output could be dialed as much as 700 horsepower, which would be outrageous. The GT R Pro is already among the fastest rear-wheel-drive production cars around the ‘Ring, with a time of 7:04.63, and it only has 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
In the car’s crosshairs will be Porsche’s 911 GT2 RS. Practically every other 911 variation is kept in check by the GT R Pro, so we would not be shocked if the new GT road car has what it requires to tackle the flagship 911. Stay tuned.
