The time has come, I'm selling my AMG GT R Pro! After nearly 2 years and lots of fun, with the recent arrivals of the two Black Series cars, it's time for the Pro to head on and here are the reasons why I've made that decision, despite considering to keep it.

I collected the limited edition Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro back in late 2019, as an update to my then 2-year old pre-facelift AMG GT R and with intentions to enjoy on track during 2020. However, those outings to Spa, Zandvoort, Ascari and Portimao could not happen with the travel restrictions that quickly came in, but fortunately some good Nurburgring outings were still on the cards.
The Pro has often been a misunderstood car because it's very track focused and really rewards you in that environment. It was very interesting to do some laps in the GT R Roadster more recently and realise quite how significant the difference is. However, while I'd love to keep the 1-of-750 car, with some many AMGs in the garage at the moment it's quite a stretch and hence the decision has been made for it to be sold.
Hence, join me for the last drive, a bit of a farewell to a great car, as it will soon head onwards to a new home to be enjoyed by a new owner.
