While we await the arrival of the new generation Mercedes-AMG GT, the German company BSTC Performance has introduced tuned AMG GT R with a number of visual and mechanical upgrades. With a capacity of 891 hp (664 kW / 903 hp) tuned sports car more powerful than the flagship AMG GT Black Seriesleaving behind many modern supercars.

BSTC Performance specializes in used Mercedes parts, so they upgraded the GT R with original components from GT R ​​Pro and an updated GT range. These include new LED headlights and taillights, a redesigned front bumper with carbon fiber grooves, more sporty side sills, a rear bumper with vents and a carbon fiber diffuser that expands to the side, as well as a fixed rear fender. AMG Performance forged wheels are also from AMG GT R Pro, shod in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 size 285 / 30R19 at the front and 335 / 25R20 at the rear.

The twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine has been upgraded with a new pair of turbochargers from Weistec Engineering, air coolers from Wagner, IPE plumbing with 200-cell sports catalytic converters, a carbon fiber intake duct ARMA and customized ECU software. to unleash your full potential.

As a result, power was increased from the standard 577 liters. s. (430 kW / 585 hp) to 891 hp. s. (664 kW / 903 hp), making it more powerful than any OEM version of the AMG GT, including the 720 hp Black Series. (537 kW / 730 hp). Power is transmitted to the rear axle via a seven-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch transmission that has been upgraded to cope with increased power.

BSTC has not revealed the performance characteristics of the tuned AMG GT, but we suspect it will be a bit slower on the track compared to Black series which comes with a more focused chassis setup and a more aggressive air suspension. Having said that with such great power, we assume that a straight-tuned GT should be faster.
