My AMG GT R Pro TOP SPEED VMAX DRIVE! 319km/h 198mph

Πριν 3 μήνες

That's Vmax in the AMG GT R Pro! With a full Race Start and clear stretch, the Pro reaches an electronically limited top speed of 319km/h (198mph) on the open and de-restricted German Autobahns. The speed with which it gets there, and the stability it has at such speeds is quite remarkable, this is an epic machine!
The Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro officially claims a top speed of 318km/h (198mph), identical to that of the regular AMG GT R which is quite surprising as normally the addition of more downforce with the extra splitter, flics and gurney on the spoiler would create drag at the high end. Nonetheless after having gone to 330km/h (205mph) in my previously RENNtech tuned GT R, it will be fascinating to see what the completely stock GT R Pro with OPF can achieve.
The GT R Pro is powered by a 4.0l twin turbo V8 with 585hp and 700nm, through a 7 speed dual clutch and all going to the rear wheels. It's a limited edition model with only 750 to be produced, of course more at home on the race track and after completing the running-in process the first place mine went was to the Nurburgring, where it has now completed a number of outings around the Nordschleife.
Prior to heading out, the car has had a check-over, the tyres are all good and inflated to the recommended pressures for fast running of 38psi front and 39psi rear. With luck then on side, there's an opportunity to complete a full Race Start from 0km/h all the way through to Vmax in approximately 41 seconds on the empty and open, de-restricted German Autobahn. The top is a forced electronic limiter where clearly there would be another +5km/h perhaps to go with the conditions to do so and obviously the limiter removed.
Thanks for watching, Tim

From 0km/h to a top speed of 319km/h in one run from a Race Start, the GT R Pro is a fantastically fast machine! It might be at home on a track, but it can handle high speed like a breeze. I'm starting to like this car more and more!

I recommend a Dragy to get your telemetry (0-60 0-200 1/4 etc). Is small, works with your phone, and can add the telemetry on top of a video. It also uses a 10hz gps transceiver as opposed to 1hz ( gets 10 gps location updates per second as opossed to 1 per second on the phone by itself).

In my experience, German cars ALWAYS under-read by a good few mph. In contrast every Japanese car I've ever driven is pretty much spot on the same speed as the GPS. Serious question though... For most people (who don't have a collection of cars) would you ever recommend the Pro over the regular GT R? It seems like you lose a lot for more day to day use. I know that's the point of the pro, but it does feel like you drive this one WAY less than the other one, even given everything that's happened and it feels like it's a lot less usable. Is it?

Why on earth does Mercedes cap the limit at 198? The car can obviously do over 200, and to set the limiter at 201 mph would seem more exciting, both on the road, and for the numbers game. In any case, great drive Tim!

I'm so sick of those people like you see at 11 min in the video. Empty the entire time, but when a car doing 300 comes up fast from behind, THAT is the moment they choose to do an overtake manuever which usually takes them 1-2 minutes. Absolutely infuriating. At least press that friggen pedal so you pass the cars in under 10 seconds!, and everyone can continue on their way. So when's the limiter getting removed Tim? :D

shmee you've been completely mugged off by AMG. Putting a limiter on a car that costs that much at 198mph? They are laughing at you. I bet a call to the dealer will reveal AMG will remove the limiter for even more of your money. Frankly they are taking the piss though - that is no way to treat customers who are spending a lot of money on these things.

Nothing personal Shee. But I tend to find your personality a little too goofy for my own taste, as a result I don’t watch most of your material. However this video was absolutely excellent. He kept the facts he kept what was relevant you didn’t go on and on about nonsense nobody cares about. And it was a great video not just because I’m buying one, LOL. But it also let me in timeout and acceleration car for things outside of Hartford. And it’s really well done with your iPhone the corner. Great video, great job and happy fourth know the day we split LOL. Keep up videos like this and I think it’s your audience come back more often.

No idea why unlimited speed on freeways is legal only in Germany. It should be allowed everywhere on decent freeways. Still German Autobahns are safest roads even with unlimited speed. Speed limits are unsafe, because you pin your eyes to your speedometer instead on the road ahead.

The wind blowing in one direction is a big deal indeed, because after about 70 km/h, the air resistance quickly becomes the dominating factor. At 200 km/h, it amounts to 80% of the total resistance. The relative speed between the car and the surrounding air is increasing if you drive against the wind, thus increasing the friction force against the face surface of the car in conjunction with the drag coefficient. To go from 100 km/h to 200 km/h, the air resistance is squared (so instead of double, it's quadruple), and the horse power has to be much higher than quadrupled to reach that speed. To hold a speed of 100 km/h, the engine has to have only 15 to 25 wheel horsepower (depending partly on the rolling drag, but more on the air resistance), but to hold 200 km/h (now almost exclusively due to air resistance), it needs to have around 110-115 HP at the wheel (around 130 HP at the engine). That's a factor of 5x to 8x. To hold 300 km/h, around 340 HP at the wheel are required, but that's around 400 HP at the engine, factoring in all the frictional losses at the transmission etc. Of course these are only examples, it's slightly different for each car model. With 585 HP claimed for the engine, you could get into the region of 350 km/h, unrestricted. Now, you have a bit of aero on the car for added downforce, which increases the drag coefficient, but not dramatically, i suppose. Compare that aero to a Porsche 917/30 from the 70s, the engine made 1100 HP and 1098 Nm of torque, but due to the insane downforce and large drag coefficient cw = 0.57, top speed was "only" 370-385 km/h. On the other hand, the Volkswagen ARVW concept car from the early 80s could reach 360 km/h from its just 173 PS diesel engine, due to its small face surface and heavily optimized drag coefficient of just cw = 0.15.

For a number of people, this would be difficult if you are just driving it by yourself. It would be mentally challenging especially when overtaking.
