    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.

    Whoa! These pictures will definitely get you rethinking the W205 generation Mercedes design. Although the cars are blending together that is not to say the modern Mercedes styling language is bad. Just look at this black Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe for proof of that. The car is lowered with dark window tint and tinted lights. Vossen wheels in a matte bronze finish round it out but a gloss black finish would look even meaner. Either way, this is a badass C63 Coupe.

    This is incredible considering that AMR Performance already showed a gain of 63 horsepower and 100 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on the 2016 W205 C450 model. That was with their 1.01c tune revision and now with their 1.02b tune revision they take things considerably further. How about 371 at the wheels or in other words another 53 whp from where they already were? That is more than 100 horsepower at the wheels over stock: Utilizing this tune and no other modifications a C450 went 12.3 @ 112 in the 1/4 mile in 98 degree weather. We expect easy 11's in winter conditions or just cooler weather: We are waiting on the slip but AMR is pushing the C450/C43 models harder than anyone else along with the M276 DEL30 engine. #AMR #amrperformance

A: Yes, as long as the thread is NOT closed, it's still for sale. Q: How much power does it make? A: Depends on how much boost. See attached dyno sheet below (not my actual dyno).

A: Yes via the Tune2Air WMA3000B Bluetooth adapter which the radio sees as "iPod". You can then use SoundCloud for all your music and even use the steering wheel to skip tracks. You can also plugin a USB drive and play music through there as well. Q: Have you done any oil analysis? A: Yes, for the last two oil changes, I've sent an oil analysis to BlackStone Labs. I can provide the reports if requested.

    You have to take the horsepower figures here with a grain of salt. GAD motors obviously builds powerful M157's so no doubt they can deliver 900 horsepower in this ML but without dynos there is no proof either of these SUV's are making their claimed horsepower. The X6M traps 126.8 in the 1/4 mile and the ML63 124.3. That just does not feel like 850-900 horsepower performance even in 5300 horsepower SUV's. The X6M can do about 115 stock so almost another 300 horsepower is an increase of 11 miles per hour of trap speed? Whatever the actual horsepower figures may be these are two powerful German SUV's going at it. The X6M is the faster of the two and beats the ML63 to the 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile marks decisively although the AMG puts up a fight. Hopefully we can get the details on what is done to each but turbo upgrades are a given.

    Interesting run here as two tuners put forth S63TU's they tuned against each other with the winner taking $10k. Evotech apparently has a reputation in Europe as not wanting to race unless it is for money otherwise it is a waste of their time. The funny thing is they were not willing to race for $10k but instead agreed to a $1500 run. What happened to the confidence Evotech? Frankly, BimmerBoost does not have too much faith in Evotech's claims as they seem to be exaggerated anyway. The F10 M5 camera car is tuned by BimmerBoost member @lfelunden who has not yet decided on a name for his new tuning company. The M6 Gran Coupe is heavier than the standard M6 so weights are pretty even here. It is surprising how easily the M5 pulls considering both cars are bolt on tuned and if racing for money one would assume at their best. No comment from Oliver Neumann the owner at Evotech at this time although we are told the race loser paid up. BMW M5 F10 HCP mods: Stage 3 software by HCP, catless downpipes and K&N drop-in filters M6 F06 Evotech: Stage 2+ software (Evotechs most powerful), akrapovic exhaust, catless downpipes and intake
