With only one more day left before the Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro is officially unveiled at the LA Auto Show, the folks at Mercedes-Benz have released yet another teaser on Twitter today saying that the car has achieved an impressive lap time on the Nurburgring.
Although the lap time remains unknown, what we do know is that it is a sharper, more track-focused variant of the AMG GT R which will be going against the likes of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
Even before its world premiere, the new Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO has impressively demonstrated its performance potential on the racetrack. Stay tuned for more.— Mercedes-Benz (@MercedesBenz) November 26, 2018

Looking at the first teaser image released last week, the AMG GT R Pro will have a new front bumper with larger air intakes, a more pronounced front splitter, and more aerodynamic modifications than the AMG GT R which was revealed last year.
No technical details have been revealed yet but the car will most likely make more than the GT R’s 577 PS, with a limited production run.
That being said, more details of the Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro will surface once it makes its world debut at the LA Auto Show tomorrow.
