Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe: Sensual Purity

No car epitomizes everything that Mercedes-AMG has become quite like the AMG GT. The emergence of subtle sweeping and luxurious curves define the character of the latest Mercedes-Benz as well as a clear lineage back to Mercedes’ famous sporting models from the 1950s and earlier, too. They combine with ballistic performance, agility and sheer thrills from a thumping bi-turbo V8 with 470 bhp.

Here in two seat coupe form it offers distinct refined sportiness along with a surprising practicality for everyday use. The example pictured, currently on sale at Mercedes-Benz of Stevenage in Hertfordshire, UK, is equipped with AMG Ride Control Suspension, AMG Night Package, Iridium Silver metallic paint and the ever popular Premium Package to boost amenities.

Exterior 

The new Mercedes‑AMG GT embodies the sensual purity of sportiness and emotion. The two-seater is characterized 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 hood 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 creative interaction of diverse design elements lends the coupé a superior, self-confident front: the new AMG Panamericana grille stands in the center of the front end – as on all sports cars of the GT Family. LED high-performance headlamps with stylized “eyebrows” as daytime running lamps, side lights and indicators, as well as three separate high-beam reflectors lend the Mercedes‑AMG GT its characteristic look.

Interior 

The interior design embodies maximum emotion and sensual purity. Radically low, sporty proportions create a unique sense of spaciousness. Clearly drawn components and their authentic materials underscore the dynamic character and create instant excitement: Anyone opening the door discovers an exciting interplay between the deep, sloping dashboard and a dominant, arched high center console, a design which evokes emotions and impresses with its perfection.

Powertrain

You press the start button, the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine with dry sump lubrication springs into life and the powerful bass of the sports exhaust system begins to sound. How ecstatic will you be when the engine, with its maximum output of 470 hp and torque of 600 Nm, catapults the Mercedes-AMG GT from 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds?

Thanks to its AMG sports suspension and double wishbone layout, the Mercedes-AMG GT impresses with excellent lateral dynamics and driving stability at high speeds. Using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller, you adjust the handling to ideally suit the driving conditions: available for this purpose are the three preconfigured transmission modes – “C,” “S,” “S+” – and the individual transmission mode “I.”
