Damn, I just realized the price of this thing. 275k pounds before tax. Considering the base AMG GT costs 104k , that seems a bit steep. But again that's probably around the same price as the most basic Aventador.

Who let the guys who did the Civic Type R into the Mercedes styling studio? lol

But seriously though, it looks badass and absolutely crazy, and I love it.

Mercedes TT V8 engine in its most powerful, most ultimate form. And no electric hybrid silliness.

If this does a lap on N-ring same time as GT3 RS it's either a heavy porker or Porsche bumped their 911 to 80-100hp. Don't see what other options are

good luck "bumping" a natural aspirated engine up 80-100hp when it's already needing 9000 rpm to get 520hp.

The GT3RS with WP is 200kg lighter than the very hardcore AMG GTR Pro. The black series with that much more power and bodywork likely won't weigh less, but that chassis has been extremely good. If they can get a 7:04 out of the "585"hp AMG GTR pro, they will be much more likely hitting 6:4X times for the 730hp black series which also has a ton more aero.

From 7min 20s for 991.1 GT3 RS to 6:56 for 991.2 GT3 RS is like a new generation difference, not a 'facelift'.
They say Black Series is 35kg lighter than GT R/Pro so we'll see

most of the difference is in the cup2R tire compound. That alone is worth 10s at least.
2nd most difference is the car has wider tires and the car is set up to have much better balance. Randy Pobst once talked about how the 991.1 was set up so diabolical with huge amount of entry oversteer, and way too pointy.

I like it, but it seems a little like a slow roll out by Mercedes. We all know their 4.0l v8 can produce 610 and 630hp, but for the GTR, they gave it only 585. Then for the GTR Pro, they give it the same but more aero. Now they have the GT black series... more aero again, maybe more power.

It seems they’ve purposely held back the car to make more variants of it and extend its production life and make more money.
