The #GT2RS : 997 vs. 991. Which one would be your pick? The 997 GT2 RS made its first public appearance at Goodwood back in 2010. 7 years later, the 991 GT2 RS ran the same course, piloted by the legendary Walter Röhrl. Both launch-spec cars were GT Silver Metallic with wheels in the same satin White Gold Metallic finish. But underneath, far more different. Leave your choice in the comments below. I will tally the results tomorrow. Genuinely curious how this will turn out. #PTSRS
The new AMG GT4 "The Track Beast". 🔞😈💪🏼🤘🏻
With the new GT4 race car, Mercedes-AMG is entering another GT racing category that stands out for its dynamic growth. Race series all over the world provide an attractive mix of demanding sprint races and legendary endurance races that allow for an increasing number of opportunities to compete with GT4 machinery.
“The GT4 segment is getting more and more popular. The production-based concept is an important factor, especially when you want to get started in motorsport as a team or as a driver. For us as a manufacturer, GT4 competition is a logical next step to extend our Customer Racing Programme. After the achievements in GT3 racing, the Mercedes-AMG GT4 is opening another valuable platform for us to prove our competence as a globally successful sports car and performance brand. There is no doubt that we will once again be setting new benchmarks in the segment with the latest member in our Customer Racing Programme.
Production-base meets racing technology
The Mercedes-AMG GT4 is based on the Mercedes-AMG GT R that was introduced in June, 2016 and already has a particularly high level of race track performance. In every area where the production specification could mean a compromise for racing purposes, it is replaced by racing technology for the Mercedes-AMG GT4. The many years of experience from the GT3 segment have clearly been incorporated into the development.
Further development of a proven power unit
The Mercedes-AMG GT4 is powered by the M178 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine with direct fuel injection, known from the road cars from Affalterbach. The proven production technology of the front-mid engine allows for particularly long service intervals and also provides sufficient performance reserves for the future. Depending on the balance of performance, this results into an output of up to 375kW (510hp) and a maximum torque of over 600Nm.
