This is the Mercedes AMG RXR One Super Gran Turismo
German tuner IMSA goes to town on a standard AMG GT to give us this 828bhp monster of a modified Mercedes
You may not have heard of German tuners IMSA GmbH, and to be fair neither had we. But if this modified wide-bodied AMG GT dubbed the ‘RXR One Gran Turismo’ is anything to go by, consider us officially sitting up and taking notice.
For starters let’s go over the added wideness. This is the result of a widened track with a wide-arch setup to cover those massive lightweight forged rims shod in Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres. These measure in at 315/30-series wide at the rear and 305/30-series at the front to complete the menacing stance of the car.
The body has been reworked as well with a confirmed kerbweight of just under 1,300kg; this is an utterly insane 300kg lighter than the standard car. All this massive saving was achieved by a wealth of carbon-fibre body-panels and the removal of all unnecessary weight.
To make sure it’s got the power to match those looks and exploit that new weight figure, the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 has been fitted with a new pair of turbochargers, a set of forged pistons along with a new intake and intercooler amongst a litany of upgrades. The result of all this fettling is a planet reversing 828bhp and 738lb-ft of torque. With the standard car running the 0-62mph dash in around 4.0 seconds, expect this monster to be a substantial amount faster.
Want one? Of course, you do - IMSA hasn't confirmed how much cash you'll need, but we are betting it will be a barrow-load of cash and then some. Each car ordered is subject to a wealth of options meaning that any price will vary greatly between buyers as each car ordered will likely be unique.
So, would you choose this over a standard AMG GT R? Or is 828bhp too much to handle? Join the discussion in the #supercars live chat.
