Mercedes-AMG yelpazesinin en tepesinde şu an için AMG GT R oturuyor. 911 gibi spor modellere rakip olarak tanıtılan araç 585 bg gücüyle zaten yeterince hızlı fakat Affalterbachlı ekip, yakın zamanda Black Series ile çıta daha da yukarıya taşınacak. Bir de işin modifiye firması boyutu var ki Posaidon, güç çıtasını neredeyse 900 bg'e çıkarmış!
Hâlihazırda M178 kodlu çift turbolu V8 motorundan 585 bg güç, 700 Nm tork veren AMG GT R, Posaidon dokunuşuyla 880 bg'e ulaşmış!
Galeri: Posaidon modifiyeli AMG GT R
Neredeyse 300 bg gelişim sağlayan Posaidon bunu bilyalı rulmanlara sahip turbo, dövme alaşım pistonlar ve yeni bir yakıt enjeksiyon sistemiyle sağlamış. Daha büyük turbo downpipe'larıyla donatılan yeni egzoz sistemi de setup'ı tamamlıyor.
Her ne kadar güç ciddi manada artmış olsa da azami tork, çift kavramalı şanzımanı korumak adına 1000 Nm ile sınırlanmış. Tüm bunlar sayesinde Posaidon'un AMG GT R'ı 358 km/s maksimum sürate ulaşabiliyor.
Mercedes'in henüz tanıtmadığı Black Series'e en yakın şey olarak görülebilen Posaidon AMG GT R'ın temel aldığı model aslında jenerasyon ömrünü tamamlamaya yakın; yani yakında daha farklı firmalardan daha çılgın M178 V8 projeleri görebiliriz.
PRESS RELEASE POSAIDON RS 830+ (based on Mercedes-AMG GT R)
Black Beast: 880 hp and 1,000 Nm for the AMG GT R
It is a well-known fact that any Mercedes car with AMG tacked onto the end of its name gives you a supreme sports car experience that provides countless hours of driving fun. This applies in particular to cars with the famous four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, but also to the models at the lower end of the portfolio with their powerful four and six-cylinder engines. But the undisputed champion of the AMG world is without a doubt the GT R. With 585 hp and 700 Nm of torque, this thoroughbred sports car – which was subjected to intensive trials on the North Loop of the Nürburgring during its development – could even make its main competitor, the Porsche 911, quake in its boots.
And yet, the M178 eight-cylinder engine under the long front hood of the coupé still has tremendous optimization potential. This has been demonstrated impressively by the specialists at POSAIDON, who have elevated the GT R into the league of the super sports cars once and for all: The Mercedes now delivers up to 880 hp and bears the name POSAIDON RS 830+. The maximum torque is electronically limited to 1,000 Nm in order to spare the seven-speed dual clutch transmission – despite this having already been given hardware and software reinforcements! With its unbridled power, the four-liter V8 can catapult the GT R to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. The maximum speed is 360 km/h thanks to an additional control device from POSAIDON that does away with the factory Vmax limit.
The huge increase in horsepower – almost 300 hp – is largely due to the two completely new, ball-mounted high-performance turbochargers, which provide the engine with a powerful boost. POSAIDON has also fitted forged high-performance pistons and new sports air filters. Modified fuel pumps convey the high-octane gasoline even faster and more efficiently into the combustion chambers, where high-performance spark plugs produce the ignition spark. The manifolds – which lead the exhaust gas away from the engine and into the turbocharger – as well as the adjoining downpipes and sports catalytic converters were also replaced. To round it all off, the engine software was adapted to the new-and-improved hardware.
By the way, owners of “weaker” models of the AMG GT, GT S and GT C who also dream of getting such raw power for their sports car can have their wish granted: POSAIDON also offers the RS 830+ conversion for these variants.
