We knew some hardcore variant of the Mercedes-AMG GT was coming, and a new video with it lurking in the shadows shows that it will be called the Mercedes-AMG GT-R. R. RRRRR. RRRRR like a pirate. A racing pirate.

Watch it and weep at the meanest AMG GT you can legally drive on the road. Shadowed in darkness so as not to give the full car away too soon, it just looks mean, even when clad in bright shades of green with happy yellow accents inside. As it is a Mercedes, that interior looks like a genuinely nice place to hoon.

It’s hiding. Lurking. Patiently waiting to destroy tires and eardrums.

(I like it.)
