Why does the GT R Roadster exist? The GT R is a Track focused version of the AMG GT family main 2 door coupé: a series of cars built to battle the likes of the Porsche 911 Carrera series. The R takes it's inspiration from the #MercedesAMG GT3 car, sans natural engine, it has active aero, 9 stage traction control, wider body and track, rear wheel steer and a whole host of stiffening and rigidity measures including the use of light materials. All to create a car that could rival a Porsche GT3.

The GT R Pro barely made any sense, adding some more rigidity, aero and little else, while removing much of the GTR's daily charm. While the GT Black Series #supercar truly sits alone as a 730BHP monster car.

So why take a dynamic car where the Nth's and 10'ths matter so much, and dumb it down by making it heavier and less dynamic? It can be perhaps forgiven as it's a limited 750 unit car, but still, things don't bode well for #AMG's latest roadster: unless you look at the past, where it joins other limited edition AMG track roadsters too!
