Overview

Designed by a team led by Gorden Wagener, Vice President of Design, Daimler AG and developed entirely in house by AMG, led by its Chairman, Tobias Moers, the GT is an all-new two seater sports car that combines AMG hallmarks of exhilarating performance and true driver engagement, with long-distance comfort and every-day practicality.

It has everything you would expect from an authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car – from the characteristic styling, thoroughbred motorsport technology to the optimum weight distribution. The drive system tailored consistently to driving dynamics perfectly complements this set-up. The centrepiece of the Mercedes-AMG GT, the new 4.0-litre V8 biturbo, responds instantly with extreme power right from low revs and delivers outstanding performance.

The new AMG-GT is the second all-new V8 sports car developed entirely in-house by AMG. The two-tier UK model range comprises the 462 hp AMG GT, followed by the more powerful 510 hp AMG GT S.

At the same time, the two-seater is a straightforward, comfortable and reliable companion for everyday motoring thanks to its easily accessible luggage compartment, high level of comfort on long journeys and the extensive Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive assistance systems.

Sporty emotion and sensual purity

The new Mercedes-AMG GT embodies the sensual purity of sportiness and emotion. The two-seater is characterised by hallmark rear-wheel-drive proportions. The V8 biturbo front mid-engine ensures optimum weight distribution, which forms the basis for superb driving dynamics. The long bonnet with its pronounced powerdomes, the greenhouse which has been moved far back, the large wheels and broad tail end make up the distinctive looks. The large tailgate conceals a practical luggage compartment.

The interior design too embodies maximum emotion with radically low, sporty proportions to create a unique sense of spaciousness. The central “aviation design” theme, which is the hallmark of Mercedes-Benz sports cars, has been restyled. The extreme emphasis on the width of the dashboard, which creates an impression of a powerful wing, dominates the cockpit of the GT.

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is equipped as standard with an AMG performance exhaust system with fully variable exhaust flaps. This allows the driver to vary the engine sound: depending on the selected DYNAMIC SELECT mode the driver may experience the V8 with a focus on comfort and relaxed, long-distance journeys or with a more powerful, emotive, motorsport-inspired touch.
