Offering pure racing finesse, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is a sports car specially-designed at the German firm’s high performance centre in Stuttgart. Combining pulse-quickening style with exhilarating performance, the AMG GT’s swagger leaves many rivals in its wake. Get behind the wheel and you’ll immediately be charmed by the plush interior, while the blistering V8 engine will leave you breathless.
The AMG GT’s elegant styling uses athletic proportions and a long, beautifully-crafted bonnet to give the car a tenacious, forward-motion stance. Despite its contemporary look, the vehicle’s sleek contours are reminiscent of Mercedes’s racing past, with subtle echoes of its most iconic sport cars. The sweeping roofline slips gracefully down to the powerful rear, boasting two chrome-plated exhausts – the noise of which reflects the ferocity of the engine.
The driver-focused cockpit features an Alcantera-trim flat-bottomed steering wheel which highlights the sports car feel. Indeed, the driver sits in a low-slung seat to enhance the dramatic driving experience. The interior exudes premium quality, with a range of chrome, carbon or black gloss finishes available to add a personal touch.
The large central console anchors the cabin, making functions easy to operate. Meanwhile, the stylish dashboard holds the touchpad and COMAND system which allow you to operate a variety of functions, including satellite navigation and climate control, with ease.
Engines and performance
The 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine delivers sensational speeds of up to 193mph, while launching from 0-62mph in approximately three seconds – meaning the AMG GT promises not only luxury but full-throttle excellence.
An aluminium chassis keeps the AMG GT light and agile, while the engine choices all deliver breathtaking performance. With 650Nm torque available even at 1,750rpm, high performance is guaranteed throughout the rev range. The dual-clutch gearbox ensures smooth handling and a thrilling downshift – complete with bangs from the exhaust – underlines the joyous ride.
Safety and technology
Mercedes’ AMG brand is famous for its ‘one man, one engine’ principle, in which one master craftsman builds your engine to the finest standards. This premium build quality also applies to safety, where a host of airbags are supported by sophisticated preventive systems. These include Pre-Safe assist – which minimises the risk of low-speed impacts – and tyre pressure monitoring. Optional extras such as upgraded LED headlights and a reversing camera are also available.
