    After a bunch of teasers, spyphotos, etc., it's finally here! The highest performance Mercedes-AMG in the lineup is the 2018 AMG GT R. The car receives significant revisions including new active aerodynamics, engine changes, software changes, new brakes, new wheels, new tires, and just about everything that could be changed was changed. Mercedes-AMG unveiled the car today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as they promised they would. You can watch the whole impressive unveiling event where they bring the car in with a helicopter from the Mercedes-Benz Youtube channel which is posted below. Overall, the car looks absolutely fantastic but this vehicle is about performance and not looks. The engine receives higher compression pistons and new turbochargers. Whomever it was that said they would just change the tuning software was wrong. Very, very, very wrong. The compression is bumped from the M177 10.5:1 but Mercedes-AMG has not yet posted the full specifications so we do not know the new ratio. Regardless, 577 horsepower is now the power output and it is sent to through an even quicker shifting dual clutch transmission. There are weight saving measures such as a lighter flywheel, a new exhaust that weighs 13 pounds less, and carbon fiber pieces abound. No word yet on the curb weight. This is the new king of the Mercedes-AMG lineup and it will go toe to toe with the Porsche GT3 RS or Turbo S and possibly encroach on 488 GTB territory. We can't wait to see it in action.

    Naturally aspirated engine versus naturally aspirated engine although the GT3 RS motor is much smaller at 4.0 liters compared to the 5.2 liter V10 in the Huracan. The GT3 RS obviously is not a car designed for acceleration sprints but for the track. It still manages to impress with its straightline speed however. The standard 991 GT3 loses to the Nissan GTR as well as the Mercedes-AMG GT S. The GT3 RS seems to be much quicker though as it beat a Nissan GTR from a stop. How does it fare against the 600 horsepower Huracan which features rear wheel drive unlike the standard Huracan? The GT3 RS jumps in the first run and holds off the Huracan for a while until it comes roaring back up top. The Huracan is clearly stronger. They run again with a closer start although the GT3 RS against goes early. The Huracan pulls much more quickly this time. Camera angles from both cars are shown which is great to see. The rear wheel drive Huracan is impressive.
