Each of these cars are carefully put together by hand with the help of a few expert engineers, and sources report that the production of the GT R will be limited to 2,000 units. It is claimed that at least ten specialised technicians have to work together to mate the drivetrain to the body since it is a complex design.
Michael Bauer, plant manager at the Sindelfingen production facility said, "The cooperation with Affalterbach works very well. We, at Sindelfingen are proving once again that we can not only handle large-scale, but also small-scale production – a top performance from the team."
So that we’re on the same page, Mercedes-AMG’s new GT R packs a 4.0-litre biturbo engine that unleashes 585bhp and 700Nm of torque. There’s an entry-level GT Roadster too. One that’s capable of producing 476bhp and hitting 100kmph from standstill in just 4sec. The new AMG iterations are slated to hit the road in June this year, so stay tuned for the details.
