Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R vs. Lambo, Nissan GT-R, ZR1

August 9th, 2018

Welcome and thanks for joining us at the Palm Beach International Raceway in beautiful, sunny Florida.

Today, we will see the much-heralded Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R take-on the likes of a tuned Jeep Trackhawk, a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 2017 Nissan GT-R, and a Lamborghini Huracan. Competition today is set to include drag racing and roll racing.

As the track heats up so does the roll racing action with the tuned (by Gearhead) Trackhawk jumping on the AMG GT-R. Green Hell drives around him FTW!

Next up, we have our own in the red Lamborghini Huracan. From the dig, Brooks launches out on the MB and never looks back; walking him easily. Pass number two is a roll race. Much closer this time but I think our guy got him by a bumper. They call it even.

An orange Nissan GT-R (full bolt-ons, E85 fuel) will have a go at the Green Monster next. Never mind the aftermarket gear, the MB takes an early advantage and the win.

Chevy will take a stab at the German beauty this time with a ’19 Corvette ZR1. Corvette got the jump in the roll race and pulled off the victory but knocked the tires off in the dig race and never recovered.

All-in-all a good for the Mercedes-Benz. I was impressed with the Green Hell in 100-percent stock trim.
