We're getting our first look at the AMG GT R at Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands before a public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend. First, let's talk about that color. It's called AMG Green Hell Magno, and its name is a nod to the Nurburgring Nordschleife, where the car was developed. People aren't likely to see the connection without the name accompanying a paint chip, but people will definitely see it. It will be exclusive to the R model.

The extra power comes from a combination of new turbos, modified software, reshaped exhaust ports, and a different compression ratio. Max boost is 19.6 psi versus 17.4.
