Mercedes is reportedly hard at work developing a new Mercedes-AMG GT R to rival the likes of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

This new range-topping GT will produce a reported 570 horsepower and be priced well above the current £110,500 of the GT S. The GT R is designed to be a limited production run, track-focused car whose underpinnings and chassis have been designed in order to meet GT3 homologation specs.

In order to create a track-focused monster, Mercedes will give the GT R a plethora of functional aerodynamic upgrades. These include a brand new front bumper and splitter assembly.

Additionally, a trunk-mounted carbon fiber wing can also be seen prominently in spy shots captured as the GT R undergoes development work.

The GT R will also feature the same style of grille that was first used on the GT3 race car last year.

The GT R will likely be revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June. We will keep you updated as we hear more!
