As Mercedes-AMG division tends to become a brand of its own, in 2014 it revealed the entirely new AMG GT two seater coupe, built for both pleasure and performance.
Its front mid-engine concept with transaxle and the intelligent aluminum lightweight construction form the basis for a highly dynamic driving experience. Its likewise newly developed AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine underscores the hallmark AMG driving performance.
At the same time, the two-seater is a straightforward, comfortable and reliable companion for everyday motoring thanks to its practical tailgate, easily accessible luggage compartment, high level of comfort on long journeys and the extensive Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive assistance systems.
The exterior draws inspiration from the bigger SLS model while coming with Mercedes-Benz new design style, making up for a compact but muscly-looking coupe. The interior wears a central aviation theme, with lots of air vents, wing-like dashboard and a center console that appears to be borrowed straight from motor racing. High quality materials and precision finished surfaces help create a very luxurious environment.
The AMG GT is also the first sportscar fitted with a “hot inside V” engine and dry sump lubrication, having two turbochargers mounted between the two banks of cylinders.
