The present ruler of Mercedes AMG performance cars is the highly responsible AMG GT R, a track-focused weapon designed to devour 911s and anything else that falls in its path.
If at all the AMG GT R appears a little too tame, one can always have the patience for the upcoming top dog Black series or you can also call up Posaidon, a tuner who is prepared to covert your AMG GT R into an 880 horsepower monster.
The Mercedes AMG GT R utilizes a tweaked version of the M178 twin-turbo V8 engine which generates 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. These numbers may appear fine to any normal person, but, the tuners over at Posaidon are deprived of sanity when it arrives at horsepower.
Posaidon’s tune package for the AMG GT R also adds over 300 hp which results in 880 hp. Posaidon can acquire these weird numbers all thanks to a brand new setup of ball-bearing turbochargers, forged pistons, and a new fuel system. There is also a new exhaust setup full of larger turbo downpipes.
Even though the engine has the ability to produce a big amount of torque numbers were confined to 737 lb-ft to keep safe the dual-clutch transmission. Other tuning time was utilized in filtering this package to produce this newfound power. All gratitude to the additional 330 hp, Posaidon’s tuned AMG GT Rs possesses a new top speed of 223 miles per hour.
Possessing almost 900 horsepower on tap, the Posaidon AMG GT R is the most you can get to the AMG GT Black series that Mercedes has yet to show. Along with the current AMG GT which is getting near to the end of its lifecycle we expect to see more tuners utilizing the hugely capable M178 V8.
Posaidon is also more than excited to launch lower-trim level AMG GTs as they have discovered a way to unlock all of the secretive power of the M178 V8. Till the arrival of the AMG GT Black Series, an AMG GT R tuned by Posaidon is by far, the fastest AMG GT you can get.
