The singer, from the now separated band BTS, owns a very exclusive and expensive Mercedes Benz. However, the German brand is not entirely happy with the Korean singer for something that happened with his car. Read on and find out more.
Despite having confirmed their separation, BTS premiered their new theme “Bad decisions” which is already furious. The group made up of Jungkook, Suga, Jimin, Jin, J-Hope, RM and V was the forerunner of K-pop worldwide and is the most famous of the genre. One of its best known members is Jungkook who since he was 16 is part of the musical group and who has a taste for sports cars.
Today, at his 24 years, Jeon Jung-kook also known as Jungkook can boast that the songs he performed with BTS are one of the most listened to in the world. Songs like “DNA” Y “Dynamite” They accumulate more than a billion views on YouTube alone. It is thanks to these successes that the singer was able to buy a luxurious sports car. However, from Mercedes they are not entirely happy with the South Korean artist.
The car in question is a Mercedes Benz AMG Gt2, one of the fastest of the German brand. In the “Black Series” version, which is the one that the artist drives, we find a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine capable of throwing a power of 730CV. This powerful motor allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds. In addition, its maximum speed is 325 kilometers per hour.
Inside we find a 7-speed automatic transmission characteristic of the Mercedes. As it is a fully sporty vehicle, we find only 2 seats, both in leather that are lower than normal, allowing the legs to be fully stretched.
What makes this so special Mercedes Benz AMG GT 2 Black Series is that only 1700 units were manufactured of which an estimated 400 are in the United States. It is due to its power, and the few units that were manufactured, that this Mercedes-Benz costs $325,000. It is for this very reason that Mercedes Benz were not at all happy when they found out that Jungkook had staged a crash aboard the exclusive car. Although it was nothing serious, it certainly upset the company’s managers.
