|Mercedes-Benz AMG GT
The growling 6.2-litre V8, perfect weight distribution, large disc brakes and impressive torque figures offered the driver a thrilling ride. The mighty SLS AMG was recently retired. Taking its place is an all-new model called the AMG GT. The all-new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT combines driving dynamics and performance with superb everyday practicality. The two seater sports car is available in two variants; the standard GT and the more powerful GT S.
|Aggressive and low front
Large air intakes optimise the flow of air to the radiators. The front splitter makes the sports car appear low-slung and wide. Viewed from the side, the dome-shaped, arched roof line and the frameless doors are eye-catching features. The side air outlets feature two fins with ‘V8 Biturbo’ lettering.
|Wider rear with the concealed boot spoiler
The broad shoulders and narrow LED tail light define the rear design. The license plate bracket is located in the lower part of the bumper, allowing the Mercedes star to be placed prominently on the smooth-surfaced boot lid. An extendable rear spoiler is concealed in the boot lid when the sports car is standing still. The black diffuser insert with tailpipes integrated into the bumper.
|4.0-litre V8 unit
The more performance oriented AMG GT S output is raised to 380 kW (510 hp) and 650 Nm of torque. The AMG GT S achieves a top speed of 310 km/h. 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.8 seconds. Though powerful, the AMG GT S consumes a pocket friendly 9.4 litres/100km. Both variants of the AMG GT feature a 7-speed sports transmission fitted on the rear axle. The layout of the car provides for a weight distribution of 47 per cent front and 53 per cent rear.
|Rear storage space
This gives the AMG GT the tail happy characteristics of the SLS. Double-wishbone suspension, made of lightweight aluminum, is used at the front and rear. The driver has a perfect feel for the vehicle thanks to the speed-sensitive sports steering, which enhances handling and agility at low speeds while maintaining driving safety at high speeds
|Sports seats with integrated seats
Buttons located at each side of the centre console allow the drive to operate various vehicle functions. A free-standing central display is located centrally above the four ventilation outlets. The good all-round visibility and the high headroom offers occupants great comfort and safety especially on long journeys. The rear space, measuring at 350 litres, is accessed by the large boot lid.
