Weighing just 3,428-pounds, the Mercedes-AMG GT R is a supercar to be reckoned with, especially in the Hulk-inspired “AMG Green Hell Mango” color. It’s powered by an AMG 4.0L V8 Biturbo generating 577-horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, good for a 0-60 time of 3.5-seconds, while topping out at 198 mph. Inside, you’ll find ultra comfortable, manually adjustable AMG sports bucket seats, upholstered in nappa leather. Click here for more pictures of the AMG GT R.

“Finally, the AMG GT R’s specially developed exhaust system sounds absolutely bonkers. Of course, what we call ‘bonkers’, Mercedes calls a ‘genuine race car sound’, but either way you should watch the video and hear those amazing crackles whenever Lewis Hamilton (he was behind the wheel) lifted his foot off the throttle. The noise depends on what the exhaust flaps are doing, which can be open and closed depending on the selected AMG DRIVE SELECT mode – as well as controlled individually using a separate button,” reports Car Scoops.
