2018 MERCEDES-AMG GT R

KEY FACTS

  • A particularly well-equipped and lightly modified example of the menacing track-focused sports car, presented in excellent condition throughout and with very low mileage from new.
  • It is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, delivering 577bhp and 516lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shift.
  • The 0-62mph sprint takes just 3.6 seconds, with a maximum speed of 198mph.
  • The odometer displays a mere 18,500km from new, which is fully supported by the car’s maintenance history.
  • This one-owner example boasts a main-dealer service history as well as several tasteful upgrades and specified options.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This GT R is finished with Selenite Grey matte paintwork over a black and anthracite leather and synthetic suede-trimmed cabin, with yellow accent stitching.
  • It rides on a staggered set of 19-inch front and 20-inch rear ten-spoke AMG alloy wheels, finished in matte black and punctuated by a diamond-cut rim, housing yellow brake callipers.
  • Features include an adjustable rear wing and coil-over suspension, as well as active underbody fairing and a nine-stage AMG Traction Control, AMG sports bucket seats, a carbon-fibre roof, and a performance exhaust system.
  • This example also boasts the Track Pack, which adds four-point harnesses, a fire extinguisher and a roll-cage.
  • A larger fuel tank was specified, as well as a luggage compartment cover, a Mercedes-Benz trickle charger, and a tailored car cover.
  • The owner has fitted the supplied fire extinguisher, added the later models’ protective heat exchanger grilles after painting them silver, and fitted removable OEM carbon-fibre front winglets as per the F1 Safety Car and GT4 race car.
  • Also included in the sale are the full owner’s book pack, various maintenance invoices, documentation of the car’s Mercedes main-dealer service history, and two keys.

CONDITION

  • There is no bodywork damage.
  • The original Selenite Grey paint is in excellent condition, with only a couple of very minor stone chips to the front end of the car. The gloss plastic rear wing was repainted black, after some swirl marks were caused when the car was hand washed.
  • Moving inside, the original leather and synthetic suede-trimmed cabin presents very well indeed, with no obvious signs of wear or use.
  • The car is in excellent working order with no electrical or mechanical faults.
  • Its most recent TÜV roadworthiness test was conducted in May 2021, which the car passed on its first attempt. It was noted that the tyres have sufficient tread, however they are the original set and are now three years old.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • This GT R was most recently serviced in May 2021 at Mercedes Lamparter Viersen, who carried out an oil and filter change, as well as brake fluid replacement.
  • The car has been serviced annually since it was new, including regular brake fluid, engine oil and oil filter changes.
  • As per the manufacturer’s instructions, the spark plugs were replaced after two years in 2020.

SUMMARY

This low mileage, one-owner AMG GT R boasts an extensive specification and has been fastidiously maintained by Mercedes main dealers. Powered by a muscular and sonorous twin-turbocharged V8, this exclusive performance car would make for a superb weekend or track-day toy, or a rapid and thoroughly enjoyable daily driver.
