Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro Headlines Updated 2-Door GT Family

New Porsche 911 officially revealed full story on 992-generation

Also new in the cabin is the steering wheel design which features a motorsport-inspired flat bottom and a heavily contoured rim for flawless grip.

In addition, all GTs gain a new AMG Dynamics setting for the stability control system, which essentially allows for more slip and wheel spin without completely loosening the reins.

Mercedes-AMG has revealed a new, hard-core range topper for its GT sports vehicle range, with all options also seeing a refresh.

On the outside, the updated AMG GT takes inspiration from the 2019 AMG GT 4-door coupe launched earlier this year.

The new Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro is a limited edition model said to incorporate learnings from AMG's GT3 and GT4 race cars, adapted for life on the road. The rear fascia is also now more sculpted and the designers have used different exhaust tips to help better differentiate the various models.

Perhaps more important than all these updates, however, is a new AMG DYNAMICS driving mode. Carbon composite brake rotors, optional on the GT R, are standard on the Pro, and the lightweight five-spoke wheels get a unique finish. Underneath the vehicle is a shear plate of thin carbon-fibre which stiffens the rear-end and sharpens communication and response.

Mechanically, the GT is largely unchanged.

Following exterior revisions for model-year 2018 that saw the two-door sports auto welcome AMG's Panamericana grille design, the Mercedes-AMG GT enters 2020 with reworked LED headlights modelled after the units fitted to the GT 4-Door.

Completing the updated interior is the new 10.25-inch infotainment display that sits on top of the air-conditioning vents. Created to enhance performance at the track, this Pro model was developed as an extension of the brand's GT3 and GT4 race efforts.

The 2020 GT will land in showrooms next year. In the USA, Canada and China, the AMG GT R PRO is equipped with AMG Performance seats as standard.

Mercedes-AMG has developed a set of new coilovers for the GT R Pro where the compression and rebound can be easily adjusted through a dedicated dial on the damper. Instead, the designers have focused on the cabin, installing the center console of AMG's recently launched GT 4-Door Coupe as well as digital instrument cluster. There's also an adjustable carbon fiber front torsion bar joined by a steel unit at the rear to provide additional tuning capabilities. Further upgrade to the car's precision handling comes in the form of uniball spherical bearings making their way to the upper wishbones of the rear axle.

In lesser GT and GT C specs (the GT S is discontinued), the 4.0-liter V8 makes 469 and 550 horsepower, respectively, as well as 465 and 502 pound-feet of torque.

At the rear, a clear-coated carbon-fibre aero element at the wheel arch on either side rises up nearly to the level of the taillamps, while the rear wing is fitted with a spoiler lip to increase downforce.
