You would think that the Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster (internal name C 190) with 585 PS 4,0 liter V8 biturbo leaves nothing to be desired! Compared to the normal AMG GT, the SLS successor is equipped with widened carbon fenders at the front and thicker aluminum side panels at the rear, there was a new rear apron with a double diffuser and the rear wing was also wider. Regardless of whether it is a coupe or a roadster, the rear wing is mechanically adjustable and the roadster hides the three-layer automatic soft top. The AMG GT R Roadster destroys the hairstyle in just 3,6 seconds and at a top speed of a fabulous 317 km / h even the stickiest hair gel surrenders. But tuner Wheelsandmore is of the opinion that more has to be done! And with the self-proclaimed "Hypaero" this is also impressively proven.
750 PS and 860 Nm torque
The fabulous M178 DE40 AL bi-turbo engine is missed several performance increases that result in a maximum of 750 HP and 860 NM torque as Stage 3. And theoretically, well over 800 hp would also be possible in the AMG GT R. But the tuner focuses on perfect driveability and not on the highest possible performance. The upgrade under the hood begins with level 1 due to one Chiptuning in combination with an F1 air filter kit increases the power to a good 650 PS and 780 NM. It continues with level 2 where then sport catalysts Added to that make it necessary to adapt the engine software again. The result? 670 hp and 830 Nm! And the level 3 already mentioned still requires finely balanced turbochargers with a larger compressor unit in order to achieve the 750 hp and 860 Nm torque mentioned. Surprisingly, this time no valve exhaust system from Wheelsandmore is coupled to the sports catalytic converters. If desired, other tuners can help here if the dreamy AMG sound should be a number too subtle.
21 inch FIWE forged wheels
The AMG GT R also has the well-known three-piece FIWE forged wheels that we know from many Wheelsandmore vehicles. The concave aluminum wheel with TÜV approval in the 10,5 × 20 inch format is installed on the GT R and there are an impressive 12,5 × 21 inch front and rear. The wheelset is covered at the price of a VW Polo, Ford Fiesta or Suzuki Ignis with Michelin slippers in sizes 275/30/20 and 325/25/21. And it became obvious Hypaero also lowered. This is made possible by a KW Variant 4 coilover suspension with hydraulic Lift-up functionthat can be configured individually with the known countless setting options for personal requirements and for each area of application. But here too, including installation, you have to expect costs of a Hyundai i10, a Ford Ka or a Kia Picanto.
Complete program + vehicle = + € 250.000
And while we're at it "to be expected in cars“A Peugeot 3 sedan, a VW Golf 308 base vehicle or an Opel Crossland X should be planned for Stage 8 of the performance upgrade. In figures, the tuning costs a good 45.000 €, with various assembly and acceptance costs. In view of the new price of a GT R Roadster of just under 210.000 € but quite tolerable as we find ^^ More details are available to us Wheelsandmore Hypaero currently not available.
