Model History

November 2014

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT went on sale

The all-new Mercedes-AMG GT opened for ordering in the UK – with prices starting at £97,195.

The first examples, set to arrive in the UK in April 2015, are the GT S and GT S Edition 1, priced at £110,495 and £122,745 and powered by an all-new 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine developing 510PS at 6,250 rpm and 650Nm of torque between 1,750 and 4,750 rpm. This gives the GT S acceleration from rest to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 193 mph.

The GT arriving in the UK in late 2015, priced at £97,195, had the same dry sump V8 developing 462PS at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm. It gets to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds and goes on to 189mph.

The AMG GT is 4,546mm long; 1,939mm wide and 1,289mm high. Wheelbase is 2,630mm and kerb weight is from 1,540kg. For tax piurposes, CO2 is 217g/km for the GT and 219g/km for the GTS, so Band K, currently at £290pa.

Every GT is comprehensively specified: 19 inch wheels (front and rear) are joined by a mechanical limited slip differential, a switchable AMG performance exhaust, COMAND Online (complete with an 8.4-inch screen), AMG sports suspension and an adjustable electronic rear wing.

The GT S adds 20 inch rear wheels, red brake callipers clamping enlarged discs, an electronically-controlled rear differential, AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with three selectable modes and an increase in power from 462PS to 510PS.

The GT S Edition 1 brings with it even greater visual presence – from the fixed rear wing and accompanying deep front splitter extending up to the airdams, just ahead of aerodynamic flicks on the front wings. High-gloss silver and black 19 inch (front) and 20 inch (rear) wheels, a carbon roof, a set of black mirror surrounds with matching window surrounds and rear diffuser and black exhaust tips complete the enhancements. Inside, red contrast stitching is joined by a leather and suede finish for the special AMG performance seats and the steering wheel and a centre console in ‘Black Diamond’ textured finish.

The Mercedes-AMG GT can be specified to exacting requirements of the customer. Across the range there are two non-metallic, four metallic and five designo paint choices – from a subtle black to a vivid AMG Solarbeam yellow – accompanied by four wheel designs to choose from on the GT, three on the GT S and two on the GT S Edition 1.

Inside, there are 14 leather and five centre console colour combinations and finishes to choose from – as well as two different styles of seats, from the AMG sport seats to the more track-orientated AMG performance seats (£1,895 - standard on the GT S Edition1). For those intending to take their GT on track, there’s the option of an AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system – £5,995 – providing even greater stopping power than the AMG high-performance steel composite brake system which is fitted as standard.

AMG GT Roadster unveiled

With the two Roadster variants the Mercedes-AMG GT family has now increased to five members. The entry level into the Roadster world is the AMG GT with an output of 476PS. The AMG GT C Roadster adds a completely new output level, with 557PS.

The AMG GT C Roadster is also equipped with a lithium-ion battery, and has more exclusive appointments. Standard features include a nappa leather interior, the AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre and the additional transmission mode RACE.

Both Roadsters are quickly transformed from coupés to open-top sports cars. The fabric roof opens and closes in around eleven seconds, and can do this at speeds of up to 50km/h. The three soft top colours black, red and beige can be chosen to suit the eleven exterior and ten interior colours. The three-layered fabric soft top is supported by a magnesium/steel/aluminium structure of low weight, which helps to keep the centre of gravity low. Additional rollover protection is provided by an integrated aluminium cross-member with rollover bars.

The AMG GT C Roadster is equipped with the AMG performance exhaust system as standard to obtain an even more emotive sound experience. Two variably adjustable flaps modulate the exhaust note of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadsters authentically and directly.

The two AMG Roadster variants have adopted a special technical highlight from the AMG GT R: the active air management system. Vertical louvres located in the lower area directly behind the front fascia can be opened and closed by an electric motor in around one second. This ensures that the cooling performance is according to need. Always achieving the optimum position requires highly intelligent and fast control.
