The Mercedes-AMG high-performance stable has produced some extraordinary vehicles in recent years: not least the sensational SLS AMG. But even by their own remarkable standards, the new Mercedes-AMG GT is something very, very special.
Handcrafted by racers, it’s a thoroughbred sports car, a celebration of the sheer joy of driving. With its sublime styling, supremely balanced handling, and breathtaking performance, the Mercedes-AMG GT is a Gran Turismo in the grand tradition. Equally at home on the race track, the autobahn, or winding mountain passes, it combines blistering acceleration – 0-62 mph in as little as 3.8 seconds – with exemplary long journey comfort.
Lightweight construction and front mid-engine design ensures optimum weight distribution, making the Mercedes-AMG GT incredibly fleet-footed yet perfectly poised. You can even tailor driving characteristics to suit your taste, while the aviation-inspired cockpit exemplifies high-performance luxury. And then there’s the sound of the engine at full roar. That just has to be heard to be believed.
One look at the new Mercedes-AMG GT is all it takes to appreciate the cars perfectly judged proportions and dynamic styling. The long, sweeping bonnet with expressive front section creates poise and presence from the front. The distinctive glasshouse, set far to the back of the car features a sloping ‘fastback’ roofline and tail which accentuate the wide, powerful rear. At once elegant and athletic, this is a car that simply demands to be driven.
Signature design features include the single louvre radiator grille and LED high-performance headlamps, and the ‘V8 BITURBO’ lettering on the front wings. At the rear, there’s an electrically extending aerofoil, plus the switchable AMG performance exhaust system, with two chrome-plated twin tailpipes providing a thrilling soundtrack to your journey.
The Mercedes-AMG GT cockpit redefines high-performance luxury. Materials and finishes are second to none, from the exquisite nappa leather upholstery to the silver chrome trim.
Aviation design, as with all the latest sports cars from Mercedes-Benz, is a key theme: there’s the wing-like dashboard, the stylised air vents, the striking centre console with AMG drive unit. But this is no mere flight of fancy: every element demonstrates function as well as form.
The low-slung, sculpted AMG Sports seats, for example, offer outstanding lateral support - essential in a car this quick and agile. And the distinctive AMG Performance steering wheel’s intuitive, multifunction design ensures that operating the
Mercedes-AMG GT soon becomes second nature. So you can concentrate on enjoying the ride.
