Dynamic front-end design

The assertive design of the Mercedes-AMG GT's nose and bonnet conveys all the excitement of AMG's motor racing history.

The low front spoiler, diamond-mesh grille with iconic three-pointed star and the two massive air intakes are uncompromising and functional. This car looks fast even when it's going slowly.

Muscular rear.

The classic fastback design is evocative of famous Mercedes-Benz racers of the past. It's also indicative of immense power and performance.

Fast silhouette.

The purposeful silhouette propels the car forward. The pronounced beltline running along the entire side wall flows into the powerful shoulders.

The cockpit bears all the hallmarks of AMG's sporting DNA. The impressive centre console rises up towards four imposing air outlets, with the large display screen at the top.

Exclusive interior.

The Mercedes-AMG GT's standard-specification AMG sport seats provide a high level of comfort and support, especially during fast cornering.

The standard AMG sport seats feature integral head restraints, supportive contours and AMG badging. The optional AMG Performance seats are more strongly contoured and feature adjustable side bolsters for even greater lateral support.

AMG 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine.

Centrally located, the front-mid-mounted engine weighs just 227 kg. Being positioned low down within the aluminium spaceframe results in a low centre of gravity.

For perfect balance, the dual-clutch transmission is mounted at the rear in a transaxle configuration. Dry sump engine lubrication ensures an optimal oil supply even during hard cornering.

Torque tube.

The front-mid-mounted engine is fixed to the rear-mounted transaxle by means of a torsionally rigid, flex-free torque tube.

Within the torque tube is an extremely strong and lightweight carbon-fibre drive shaft. It transmits the 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine's power to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed transmission, which in turn transforms the power into breathtaking acceleration.

AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension.

The AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with adaptive damping comes as standard on the Mercedes-AMG GT S and delivers first-rate performance and refinement.

Combined with a double-wishbone configuration it enables racetrack performance with excellent cornering characteristics and high-speed stability. It also adjusts the damping at each individual wheel to suit your driving style and road surfaces.

 

(Optional on AMG GT. Standard on AMG GT S/C)

AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission delivers superfast gear changing and race-like performance. The sportier the mode, the quicker the response time.

With minor adjustments to engine speed, near-immediate gear changes are effected without interrupting the power delivery. Seven gears, three drive programs, a manual mode, double-declutching and the RACE START function provide exhilarating acceleration.

AMG composite braking system.

The high-performance AMG braking system with internally vented, cross-drilled composite discs provides huge stopping power and maximum control.

The optional AMG ceramic composite braking system weighs approximately 30 per cent less than the standard brakes.

Optimum weight distribution.

Optimum weight distribution.

Because of where the engine and AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed gearbox are mounted, the Mercedes-AMG GT has a near-perfect weight distribution of 47:53 between the front and rear axles. The car also has a low centre of gravity and the two combine to give the Mercedes-AMG GT exceptional agility and fantastic cornering ability. So no matter what the sort of road you're on, you'll always have fun.

Carbon-fibre. Aluminium. Magnesium. Steel.

Carbon-fibre. Aluminium. Magnesium. Steel.

These are the main ingredients of the Mercedes-AMG's body and mean you'll never have a dull journey when you drive this car. The spaceframe, made largely of aluminium alloy, weighs just 231 kg and forms the central core of a car that is light, strong and stiff. These characteristics lay the foundations for the best road-holding and sharp, precise steering. A special front section made from super-lightweight magnesium alloy contributes to the Mercedes-AMG GT's excellent agility.

  • Weight: 231 kg

  • Lightweight, strong and extremely rigid

  • The very best in steering

  • Optimised agility
