The carbon fiber roof, yellow brake calipers and fixed rear wing highlights the GTR’s motorsport blood while the GTC gets a panaromic roof and red brake calipers

GTR Aero

The low-slung front and protruding radiator grille lowers back-pressure to enhance aero and the flow of cool air

Wheel arch liners have cooling-air slits that focus airflow through the double wheel arch radiators

Air curtains on either side of the nose optimises airflow through the front wheel arches while improving aerodynamics

In Race Mode at 80kmh onwards, the mechanical front underbody carbon air spoiler lowers by 40mm to change frontal airflow which improves steering and stability at high speeds

AIRPANEL active air management system feature vertical mechanical louvres in the lower area behind the front apron that opens or closes electronically to either enhance aero or cooling aspects

GT Chassis

For lightness, the wishbones, steering knuckles and hub carriers on the front and rear axles are made entirely out of forged aluminium

In the GTC, its sports suspension is paired with AMG Ride Ride Control, which is also adaptive and continously vary ride quality or can be manually selected via mode button
