Mercedes-AMG has confirmed pricing for its most fearsome AMG GT car yet, with the limited-edition 2020 GT R PRO set to command a hefty tag if you want to get your hands on the keys. Only 750 of the 577 horsepower cars will be produced worldwide, the automaker has confirmed.

It uses the same 4.0-liter AMG V8 biturbo engine as the GT R, and indeed the horsepower and torque figures – the latter clocking in at a healthy 516 lb-ft from 2,100 rpm – are the same for both cars. Each uses an AMG Speedshift DCT 7-speed transmission, too, along with rear-wheel drive.
