Starting at $157,000, the Mercedes-AMG GT-R is one of the best bang-for-buck supercars you can get in that price range. The vehicle is powered by a 4.0 Liter V8 bi-turbo engine, delivering 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, allowing the vehicle to sprint from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 3.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 318km/h (197mph).
The Mercedes-AMG GT R comes with exceptional driving dynamics that come courtesy of the front mid- engine layout with transaxle, extensively modified suspension, sophisticated aerodynamics, active rear-axle steering, bespoke tires and intelligent lightweight design. Alongside weight reduction, aerodynamic improvements, a powerful engine and the sheer speed through the corners, this is a perfect vehicle for the Nürburgring Nordschleife overall. It’s not surprising the vehicle achieved the fastest-ever lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife of 7:10.9 in a test drive independently conducted by the magazine “Sport Auto,” setting the bar high, as the car drove faster through the “Green Hell” than any other road-going sports car ever tested by the motoring magazine.
This particular Green Hell Magno Mercedes-AMG GT-R belongs do DJ Skee. He is an American artist, television host, radio personality, philanthropist, and entrepreneur. Skee rose to fame as the first DJ to discover and play superstar artists on the radio including Kendrick Lamar, Justin Bieber, Akon, Lorde, and Lady Gaga amongst many others. He’s also a petrolhead.
When DJ Skee received his gorgeous looking AMG GT-R, the decision was made to add a bit of a customized touch to his vehicle. This is done thanks to a set of ADV.1 Advanced Series forged concave wheels. Namely, a set of ADV05 Track Spec Advanced Series wheels were installed, making this already appealing supercar, look even more aggressive. The wheels are installed in sizes of 20×10 and 21×12 in the front and rear, respectively. The wheels feature a finish combination with Matte Black front face, Gloss Black lips, and a custom Green Hell Magno barrels. Alongside the showing 50/50 Exposed Titanium Hardware, the wheels look like a fitting addition to this high-performance vehicle in every way.
