BATTLE OF MY AMGs! GT R Pro vs SLS Black Series

Πριν 3 μήνες

What an epic experience with my AMGs! I've been looking forward to getting both of the new Mercedes-AMG Shmeemobiles on track to see how they compare, and it's now happened. With both the GT R Pro and SLS Black Series in the right place at the right time, it wasn't necessarily the result I expected...!
Two of the recent arrivals to the Shmeemobiles both come from Affalterbach, the AMG GT R Pro replaced my previous GT R at the very end of last year and then a few months ago the acquisition of one of my dream cars meant it would be joined by the predecessor; the SLS AMG Black Series. In many ways these two cars are very similar; front-mid mounted V8s with 7spd dual clutch gearboxes and rear wheel drive; but they are oh so different.
As well as the famous Nordschleife, the Nurburgring GP is also open from time to time for Touristenfahrten sessions; or Tourist Drives. As a public toll road, the full road rules apply which means overtaking to the left, and driving as if it is a de-restricted public highway. With stints of 15 minutes per outing it gives an opportunity to take each car out in turn to feel what they are like and some of the differences between the two cars a generation apart.
The AMG GT R Pro has a heavy downforce focus over the regular GT R with even more aero added all around, a similar concept with the SLS AMG Black Series although to a lesser extent. The engine of the former is a 585hp and 700nm 4.0l Biturbo V8, to the latter's 631hp and 635nm 6.2l naturally aspirated V8; making for a hugely different driving feel. Both cars are equipped with Michelin Sport Cup 2 rubber, and obviously built with intentions to be driven on track, but the Pro more noticeably with its camber and damper setup from the factory.
Having previously driven a number of laps with each, some stretches on the Autobahns and general driving, this is something I've been looking forward to experiencing, getting behind the wheel of them both one after the other. Nothing gives you a better comparison than the straight experience on the same day, with the same weather and track conditions.
Awesome thumbnail pic from SAJU Pictures, be sure to check out pics of your laps and GP sessions at as well!
Thanks for watching, Tim

GT R Pro vs SLS Black Series; the two fantastic AMGs that have recently joined the Shmeemobiles, one after the other at the Nurburgring GP. I've been looking forward to this, and it didn't disappoint! What's your favourite of the two?

Hey Tim. Try not to lean your head on the curves, feel the car and the g-ees. If you lean your head its like trying to cheat. I know, takes allot of exercise but you will improove your time laps and get more accurate on apex. Michael Schumacher was also giving this advice. You have gain more confidence, it shows, and you drive alot better after this touristen fahrten. Best wishes! I only try to help , not to be critic.

AMG BS will be "out" this week. Less than 3 sec 0-62mph, 200 to N Amer, $350-$370k properly spec'd, + c. $50K premium as of now. It won't get around the track faster than the GT2RS and will NEVER have as good a sound as the SLS BS. Will stay planted better than the SLS BS (Dah) but will never provide be as much fun to drive.

I think Porsche should make an engine that is the exact same design as the naturally aspirated engine in the 991 911, but double the size like a photocopy machine would to the image. That engine should be fitted to limited edition model's, such as the GT3.

This would show how much of a " generation gap" makes a difference - be it for good or bad. From N/A to Biturbo. From loud sounding to sharp cornering.

I love the SLS Black, and that blue is incredible too. The silver wheels just make it look so standard though, really not a fan of that but it’s not my car so who cares I guess. I don’t get it but that’s just personal taste I guess. I’d for sure take the SLS over the Pro

In my opinion, you should get an Renntec exhaust upgrade for the GTR Pro. The noise is not at the level of the car. Greetings from Switzerland.

Nothing beats the SLS Black Series for sound and raw emotion. It is the one to beat in your collection, Tim. Both this and the Ford GT are stratospheric in presence beyond the other cars you own. I have to say that you purchase cars very wisely and I can't wait for the Shmuseum.
