Kai likes to keep his foot soldiers close … and his enemies closer.
With meticulous attention to detail, he controls every element of the Tadakhul’s vast illegal empire: from the needle parks in Barcelona to the processing plants in Morocco, from intel on the global elite to arms supplies in Paris—every facet of a criminal organization that accepts no rivals is all under Kai’s supervision.
To Interpol, he is known simply as a faceless racketeer against whom they’ve issued a Red Notice—an international warrant of arrest. On the streets, he is feared as a merciless killer. And to the Tadakhul, he is known as a leader who will accept no slip-ups—a merciless boss who expects nothing less than blind devotion.
But Kai must also answer to his masters because he too is but a player in a vast criminal conspiracy that is about to bring the world to the edge of ruin.
To Interpol, Kai is an untouchable, a menace within an enigma. To the foot soldiers of the Tadakhul, his leadership is unquestioned. There is no one foolish enough to betray his whereabouts—not alive, anyway, for the consequences are as instant as they are lethal. And where threats do not work? There is always the way of the baksheesh.
But is there, beyond Kai’s inscrutable stare, a secret that must be maintained no matter what the costs? A secret that keeps pushing him into ever-more savage acts—acts whose consequences will soon expose his entire criminal cartel to a threat that they could never have foreseen. And who is the man from whom Kai desires nothing but approval and admiration? Could this be Kai’s one fatal weakness?
The Mercedes-AMG GT series is the second sportscar ever developed in-house by legendary Mercedes-Benz performance and sportscar brand Mercedes-AMG. Its spearhead, the Mercedes-AMG GT R, was put through its paces by none other than a four-time F1 world champion on its way to becoming the official pace car for F1.
If that doesn’t tell you all you need to know, try this: a rear-wheeled, front-engined, 2-door fastback coupé that cracked a 7:10.92 ’round the Nürburgring Nordschleife track.
Still on the fence? How about a fully-handcrafted 4.0-liter V-8 biturbo engine, assembled by the legendary “One-Man-One-Engine” principle, pushing 577 hp; a roof, rear wing (manually adjustable), front splitter, rear diffuser, underbody braces, and front fenders made of carbon fiber’; 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 s, and a top end of 319 km/h.
If that’s not enough, then get out and listen to it shift down a couple of gears with the pop and wail that sounds a lot like victory.
If you’re looking for Keyless-Go, integrated garage-door opener, and heated side mirrors, you’re looking in the wrong place. And if you’re worried about your tunes playing from anything else aside from a bare-to-the-bone 4-speaker audio system, try again, as your ears are going to be soothed by nothing more than the stereo-surround-sound of some serious street chic.
With a customized caltrop opening attached, you’re going to have to try a lot harder to get close to Kai at the wheel of his Mercedes-AMG GT R.

A twin-turbo V8 pushing out a beautifully raspy 710 hp, the McLaren 720S can get to 100 kmh in a couple of heartbeats…and 200 kmh in less than 8 seconds. “Gull-wing” dihedral doors funnel air to the engine, a great white shark-derived design lends it a predatory demeanor, and an all-carbon chassis makes it one of the lightest supercars ever created.
This is the future of hypercars—today. An all-electric new breed of hypercar designed with purpose that gets to 100 kmh in under 2 s on its way to a top speed of 412 kmh. Add butterfly doors, active aero, and a light-weight carbon-fibre monocoque with bonded carbon roof and what Croatia-based Rimac Automobili have created is a technological masterpiece, an electric hypercar that defies the past and welcomes every petrol-head to tomorrow’s wonders of speed, efficiency, and performance.
An ICE breaker.
