The GT2 RS also showcases its dedication to a race car experience through its lightweight construction, weighing a mere 3,240 lbs.
On the other side, the AMG presents itself with a notable 720 horsepower and a robust 590 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to reach 60 mph from a standstill in a commendable 3.2 seconds. Although slightly heavier at 3,584 lbs, the AMG may attribute this to a longer wheelbase and a relatively less stripped-down interior.
