Million-dollar Mercedes GT R hits the streets

MOVE over, Maserati. Mercedes-AMG has just launched the GT R, its quickest sports car and very likely the most expensive model within Mercedes’ growing family.

According to Business Times:

“Unveiled at the Sepang F1 Circuit on Nov 2, the car is priced only “upon application” in Singapore. But given how it’s priced overseas, it will cost at least S$900,000 here, including COE. In Formula One racing, its driver Lewis Hamilton recently took the drivers’ championship. On the road, 2016 saw record sales of 99,235 units sold worldwide, a 44.1 per cent increase from 2015. That was a key factor in parent brand Mercedes-Benz delivering a total of 2,083,888 cars in 2016 to become the top luxury automaker globally. It’s a feat set to repeat itself as it kicked off the fourth quarter of 2017 with a new sales record.”
