The AMG GT R is loaded with the latest safety technologies

Safety – The AMG GT R is as safe as it gets. The standard equipment is comprised of multiple airbags and a host of really advanced electronics including an ultra-sensitive traction control system to keep things in check should you get carried away by the power on offer. Mercedes has a very good network of sales and service outlets across India which means servicing shouldn’t be an issue, the company also has a reputation of good service quality levels.

The AMG GT R is one of the best mid-engine supercars

Verdict – The AMG GT R is the ultimate hardcore supercar. It has scintillating performance, sorted dynamics and raw looks. The AMG GT R is the happiest when on a track but you can occasionally drive it on the road too. That said, this range-topping AMG is not as road biased as say the E63s AMG and as a daily driver, you are better off with a smaller and less powerful AMG. But as a weekend toy, the AMG GT R packs in a tremendous punch and has all the right ingredients to make it the ultimate driver’s delight.
