Then again on top of that, some friends with another GT R and an E63 S to convoy over to MB World where Nico proceeds to show us how to drive this car in anger. This was a complete dream day out, thank you to everyone who made it possible!
Since ordering the AMG GT R approximately 18 months ago it has been a long wait through the order process, spec and now delivery but I am extremely excited for the adventures ahead. My car is painted Black which has taken me by surprise in how it looks; having originally intended to wrap it from the start I have now taken it to Topaz for detailing and Paint Protection Film to keep it black in the mean time.
It is optioned on the outside with the exterior carbon pack (mirrors and rear wing), the lightweight forged wheels and yellow calipers. On the interior we have the Dynamica alcantara with yellow stitch, yellow seatbelts, yellow embroideries, and the satin carbon fibre inlays. It's a Premium spec car and also has the Distronic Plus package and just to my mind looks epic in black, super stealthy and aggressive - as is the nature of the car. In traditional fashion it wears an SH MEE number plate, this time with 67 representing both the current registration period in the UK but also 1967, the year AMG was founded.
I'd like to say a special thank you again to everyone involved in making this collection day possible. To Nico and his team for coming down to be part of it, to Raz from Remove Before Race for bringing his cars to join the convoy and play around at MB World, to GT and the team at Mercedes-Benz Brentford, to Topaz Detailing for getting the car prepared, to the guys with me for producing the video and photos, and to Daffyd and his team at MB World for their work to make it all fit together and put the icing on the cake.
Be sure to head over and follow Nico on his channels:
And of course also Raz from Remove Before Race:
