Mercedes-AMG GT R Discontinued for the 2021 Model Year – RoadandTrack.com

It’s hard to forget about the Mercedes-AMG GT R. Up until the debut of the Nürburgring lap record-breaking Black Series, it was the most hardcore AMG GT you could buy, equipped with working aerodynamics, a race car-like 10-mode traction control system, and a 585-horsepower twin-turbo V-8. Well, it’s about to leave AMG’s lineup for good.

Following up on a report first published by Motor1, a Mercedes spokesperson confirmed to Road & Track it will drop the track-ready R from the AMG GT lineup for the 2021 model year. Taking over the top spot in the GT lineup will be the 720-horsepower Black Series, sporting more aero elements, less weight, and a vastly higher $325,000 price tag.

Also new for the AMG GT lineup is a revised base model with 54 more horsepower than before, for a total of 523. Additionally, it gets standard AMG Ride control with adaptive dampers, an electronic limited-slip differential, a high-performance “composite” braking system, and a lightweight lithium-ion battery. And if you prefer to fly under the radar, there’s a “Stealth” model that blacks out all of the exterior trim, and adds a carbon roof.
