    Maybe I've been watching too much Shmee, but lately I've been daydreaming about one of these. Am I mad?

    It would have to be light years ahead of the GTS!

    They'll only be bringing in 20 vehicles per year to Aus with 45 deposits already (back in early December anyway). Deliveries expected to start late 2017.

    There will quite possibly be a LHD vehicle at the F1 in March.

    Thanks Hydie. I've missed the bus on this one by the look of it. I expressed interest at the dealer a few months ago but heard nothing more.

    Anyway, it is a good thing it seems....

    I only took 2 photos at the Paris Motor Show. The LaF Aperta and the AMG GT R.

    You couldn't buy a La La Aperta, no matter what you offered.

    Yes you can. It's always just a matter of price.

    If you are wanting to get into a GT C Edition 50, MB Australia will be receiving an allocation - I would be getting in touch with your dealer ASAP.

    Looks like a serious bit of kit.

    Is Julian still getting one?

    They were happy to take a deposit on the R today. I'm not overly optimistic but I'll see how that plays out first before looking at the Edition 50. There may be 45 orders for the R, but without a retail price those orders aren't worth much and some always drop out.

    Not sure. He was last time I asked him but first deliveries are a way off.

    Sounds good.

    A customer of ours was apparently 32nd on the list, so we are hoping the same thing.

    I will we be at Bathurst 12 Hour in a few weeks with the AMG Director so will get more information out of him then.

    What makes you think the car even exists?

    If it were real the owner could sell it on the quiet with a phone call.

    Is there a Black Series coming, or is the GT R basically just that? If it's the former, then that might be the one worth getting in line for.

    But the GT R certainly goes alright around the 'Ring - only 13 seconds slower than a 918
