The Mercedes-AMG GT already received a lot of positive feedback when it was presented in September 2014, and the experts were enthusiastic about the breathtaking sports cars that the AMG department at Mercedes-Benz has put on the wheels. As Formula 1 safety car The car finally earned the prestige it needed to be taken seriously in the supercar league, which has made it a true opponent for the Porsche 911 Turbo and the like. After the rather disappointing, because it was too heavy and expensive, the Mercedes-McLaren SLR and the now legendary Mercedes-AMG SLS, which with its spectacular gullwing doors still attracts everyone's attention when getting in and out, is the Mercedes-AMG GT the third super sports car of the modern age, which proudly carries the star out into the world. A modified AMG GT R in Ferrari red, which is based in China, we have now discovered for you on the net, and will present it in more detail.
Red racer from Affalterbach.
Normally, a red super sports car wears a Cavallino Rampante as an emblem on the bonnet. However, there are exceptions, as this red GT R proves. In our opinion, the color looks great on the German supercar, and so does the Chinese tuning company Great Frezh Works has proven with this project that tasteful tuning of super sports cars is also currently in trend in China. This AMG, owned by a Prazis air suspension is pressed even closer to the asphalt than it already does in series, and thus in autumn almost picks up the leaves that lie on the road with the front spoiler, stands there mighty and lofty, and his face shows the will to be ready at any time when challenged.
Were further VSP Class 10 rims raised, which with their white flower optics are a bit reminiscent of classic Alfa Romeo rims, but come up with a five-spoke design that looks very daring at first, but fits perfectly in our eyes. The rump spoiler should of course not be missing, because this is trendy in almost every vehicle in China, and in this case it also reminds a little of a classic one Porsche 911 2.7 RS.
A roll cage found its way into the interior.
In addition to the Airlift 3H control for the Airride chassis there was also a Roll cage installed. Thus, the AMG was made fit for the racetrack, which, however, should not represent the suitable terrain for the built-in air suspension from Prazis.
Four-liter biturbo V8 petrol engine in the AMG GT-R
The drive is provided by a V8 petrol engine with a displacement of four liters and twin-turbo charging. This generates an output of 585 hp and a maximum torque of 700 Newton meters. The power is transmitted via a AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7-speed dual clutch transmission on the rear wheels.
The performance is in the league of super sports cars in every respect, as the biturbo V8 takes the AMG 3,6 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h catapulted, and the propulsion only at 318 km/h ends. So there is always enough power available, and you can show the taillights to pretty much any opponent if you are challenged to a duel.

We really like what we get to see from China again. Tasteful tuning with a little retro attitude, which looks subtle and professional.
