The AMG GT R's lower rear wishbone Uniball spherical bearings are added to the upper wishbones too, adding to the GT R PRO's precision. Some of its key highlights are the AMG Dynamics integrated driving control system for added agility, which provides authentic driving feel in whatever road conditions, as well as a new AMG Performance steering wheel.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO has been officially announced at the Los Angeles Motor Show 2018.
Above and below: Revisions to the rest of the GT two-door range. A new multi-chamber reflector system gives a new light signature, while the LED rear lights now have dark backgrounds. Also helping to keep the auto squat at pace are a pair of vertical veins that extend out from the carbon fibre diffuser - they look the business, too, and, perhaps unintentionally, add muscle to the GT R's already powerful haunches. The carbon fiber chassis itself has also been stiffened at the rear to improve rigidity. The whole range has been updated, with the most significant changes to be found inside. The GT and GT C models have a new rear diffuser, with the base model getting quad round tailpipes and the GT C receiving quad rectangular pipes; both models previously had trapezoidal dual exhaust. The dashboard is now fully digital with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch multimedia display on the centre console.
The Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO and the AMG GT get a number of upgrades over the previous models.
The GT borrows its GT 4-door Coupe fastback sibling's new flat-bottom steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons and galvanised paddle-shifters, plus two round displays with three buttons that switch between Dynamic Select driving modes and activate individual settings.
Mercedes-AMG has developed a set of new coilovers for the GT R Pro where the compression and rebound can be easily adjusted through a dedicated dial on the damper. Compared to the regular AMG GT, it's nearly an entirely different beast. The front axel gets an adjustable carbon fibre torsion bar, the rear steel unit is also adjustable.

The GT R Pro gets a coil-over suspension setup that is mechanically adjustable, and a carbon fiber torsion bar at the front of the vehicle joins a steel unit at the rear in providing additional tuning capabilities.
The 2019 iterations make use of a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that puts out 476PS in the GT, 522PS in the GT S, 557PS in the GT C and an impressive 585PS in the GT R Pro.
A carbon-ceramic braking package with black-painted callipers is standard alongside carbon-fibre bucket seats in the GT R Pro, while a track package with a steel roll-over cage, enclosed four-point safety harnesses and a 2kg fire extinguisher is optional.
The AMG GT R Pro builds on the GT R, revealed in 2016, with more power, less weight and new aggressive aerodynamics.
"The AMG GT embodies the core of our brand, "Driving Performance", in a unique way".

I signed a five-fight deal with Frank Warren and could have boxed five bums, but I picked him. And a win for the champion will re-invigorate hopes of a Joshua vs.
