New Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro 2021 pricing and specs detailed: Limited Porsche 911 GT2 RS rival rockets in

The GT R Pro was revealed at the 2018 Los Angeles motor show.

Mercedes-AMG Australia has secured 15 examples of the GT R Pro coupe, which will take its flagship model to a whole new level of performance upon first deliveries in September.

With a global production run of just 750 units, the $453,200 (plus on-road costs) GT R Pro is hot property, but Mercedes-AMG has ensured its track credentials are even hotter.

Based on the focused GT R that costs $84,500 less, the GT R Pro ups the ante with its coil-over suspension that allows the driver to mechanically set the spring load length and adjust the compression and rebound of the dampers via an integral adjustment dial.

Both of the GT R Pro’s axles are fitted with an adjustable torsion bar, with the front made of carbon-fibre and the rear constructed of steel with a hollow tube to reduce weight. Hard-wearing Uniball spherical bearings are used on the rear axle’s upper wishbones.

A lightweight carbon-fibre underbody panel features at the GT R Pro’s rear end, with it increasing rigidity and further improving high-speed stability, while a carbon-fibre roof panel helps lower its centre of gravity.

The GT R Pro’s electronically controlled dynamic engine and transmission mounts have a tune that increases agility and delivers better response and feedback.

Meanwhile, the aerodynamically honed front fascia features two side flics, an extended splitter and large air intakes, while the rear end has a pronounced bootlid-mounted spoiler, and racing stripes add to the overall visual theatre.

Sitting behind the Titanium Grey 20-inch forged alloy wheels is a carbon-ceramic braking package with black-painted callipers.

A Track Package with a bolted steel roll cage, two rear braces, four-point safety harnesses and a 2kg fire extinguisher is also included.

Carbon-fibre bucket seats are standard alongside a carbon-fibre package that covers the exterior and interior.

The GT R Pro shares its 430kW/700Nm 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine with the GT R. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission exclusively sends drive to the rear wheels.

For reference, this combination helps the Porsche 911 GT2 RS rival sprint from a standstill to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds.
