Mercedes says that development of the GT R was specifically focused on Nürburgring race track performance.

Thanks in part to sticky tires and launch control, the GT R will rocket to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. The top speed is pegged at 198 mph.

Active grille shutters and a splitter that deploys at speed help the GT R generate significant downforce.

This car's wheels look great but are a $1,700 option, contributing to an as-tested price of a whopping $187,345.

A multi-mode exhaust keeps the GT R somewhat quieter in normal driving and lets it roar when you're pushing harder.

In addition to an electronically controlled differential and adaptive suspension, the GT R packs rear-wheel steering for livelier handling.

That carbon-fiber rear wing is adjustable and works with the lower diffuser to maximize road-hugging downforce.
