    Finally got an RSS issue solved regarding the multiple domains and articles. Sounds simple but it wasn't. The point though is I can finally launch the BoostAddict Facebook and twitter pages. I need some kind nice image. I'll give you a bunch of rep points. Someone help me out so I don't have to hire a graphic designer.

    This whole hardcore AMG GT naming scheme is pretty ridiculous. It seems that nobody knows what to call it including AMG themselves. An AMG GT Black Series variant was 'confirmed' last year by the head of AMG. Then a month later that same head of AMG, Tobias Moers, stated the car would not be called a Black Series for some inexplicable reason. Things have changed since then as Porsche is now aggressively defending the use of the GT3 moniker. Porsche forced Aston Martin to change the name of the Vantage GT3 to the Vantage GT12. Aston Martin did not want to fight Porsche in court so they simply changed the name. AMG has much deeper pockets than Aston Martin though and could fight this if they choose to. Will Porsche's action against Aston Martin change Tobias Moers' mind? In the opinion of BenzBoost AMG has done an incredible job building up the Black Series label so why not use it? Who in the world thought it was a good idea to not use the Black Series name after the string of high performance Black Series models from AMG? Someone at AMG will eventually figure out what to call this thing but what we do know is Tobias Moers was right about the M178 engine not being stressed. He said, “That doesn’t mean we can get 700bhp from the V8 – it is not as simple as that – but the V8 is currently very understressed.” It is not stressed at the dyno numbers BenzBoost brought you show. This engine easily has another 100 wheel horsepower in it from the factory especially for a lighter hardcore and higher priced model. AMG will definitely go from 472 horsepower at the wheels to 5XX+ with this hardcore AMG GT model. The spyphotos show larger air intakes for cooling. They also show aerodynamic changes as this car will have laptimes in mind primarily. Additionally, expect carbon fiber everywhere to drop weight further. This car on paper should destroy the 911 GT3, 911 GT3 RS, the Aston GT12, etc. We will have to wait for more details but just know it is on its way. Whatever it's called.
