2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R Leaves Porsche 918 Spyder Sweating

By  | 

The Porsche 918 Spyder is one of the fastest cars ever produced and it is also very expansive to own. For automakers that wish to compete with the 918 Spyder, they don’t have to worry about outpacing the vehicle as coming close can be viewed as a win.

This is probably what Mercedes-AMG is feeling right now after the latest GT R completed C&D’s Lightning Lap 0.3 seconds slower than the Porsche 918 Spider. The AMG GT R clocked 2:43.4 on the track, which is an amazing time in its own right.

The icing on the cake is with the fact that the Mercedes-AMG GT R is about 5 times cheaper than the Porsche 918 Spyder. Well, that felt weird to say since comparing prices is something we always do for affordable vehicles. Anyway, you can check out the hot lap run of the GT R below.
