Although the company has not made an official announcement regarding the launch details, a few images shared on the web reveal that the first unit of the AMG GT-R has landed in India, hinting at an impending launch. Finished in the signature ‘Green Hell Magno’ paintjob, this AMG GT-R is believed to be the first ever Right Hand Drive unit to be manufactured at the company’s plant in Affalterbach, Germany.
The model is likely to be headed to Bengaluru where it could share the garage with a range of exotics including a Ferrari 458 Speciale, India’s only Porsche 911 R, a Vorsteiner Novara Huracan and an Aston Martin DBS to name a few.
