Handcrafted AMG 4.0L "dry sump" V8s thrust power into a new era. Twin turbos mounted inside the "V" force-feed massive boost to each Direct Injected cylinder, and deliver 60 mph in 3.9 seconds for the 456-hp AMG GT, or just 3.7 seconds for the 503-hp AMG GT S. And its ample torque is unleashed from the get-go with a growling exhaust note.
The 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension adheres to its racing principles, and to every curve and contour. Highly rigid, lightweight forged aluminum components include new direct-mounting of the rear coil-overs to the wheel hub carriers. Available 3-stage adaptive damping adapts to the road, the track, and with three modes, to your desires.
Standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS uses radar to continually monitor traffic ahead. If it detects that you're approaching a slower vehicle too quickly, it alerts you to brake. It can even start braking for you, to help lessen a possible collision. ATTENTION ASSIST® keeps its "eyes" on you, alerting you if it senses you're getting drowsy.
The 3-spoke steering wheel includes power tilt and telescopic adjustment. Convenient buttons on the wheel offer easy access to some vehicle functions you use most often, including audio volume and selection, Bluetooth-enabled phone calling, and scrolling through the features of the multifunction display in the instrument cluster. A row of climate controls are the only non-driving switches on the console, while a row of ancillary switches is integrated in an aircraft-style overhead panel.
The AMG GT S has been shaped by its purpose: pure performance in every dimension. Its light weight, sensuous sculpting and dramatic proportions are a triumphant concert of aerodynamics, aesthetics and attention to detail. Its body is almost entirely composed of aluminum, and its spaceframe weighs just 514 lbs, a class benchmark. Its low center of gravity, low drag and optimal downforce add up to highly rewarding driving dynamics. Its visual rewards need no explanation.
Composed of aluminum for more than 97% of its weight, the highly rigid spaceframe is a model of lightness. Numerous manufacturing processes optimize the strength, shape and other characteristics of each component, whether it be stamped, extruded or cast. Even the windshield frame, traditionally reinforced with steel, achieves the Mercedes-Benz standard for strength and safety with alumimum. Among the non-aluminum components is a radiator support made of lightweight magnesium.
Subtle yet prominent body elements are crafted from genuine carbon fiber, expressing the rich racing heritage of the AMG GT S. The front air-dam splitter, front fender-vent fins, side mirror housings and rear apron insert are each precisely formed in this motorsports material. Gloss Black trim behind the grille crosswing and around the side windows accentuates its aesthetics.
The AMG GT S cockpit envelops your body, heightens your senses, and connects with your driving instincts. The dramatically wide console and crisp instruments are inspired by the precision of aviation. The thick steering wheel and intuitive controls put you in command and at ease. Deeply contoured AMG Performance seats support your every move.
Intuitive controls in the prominent center console place an abundance of driving modes at your fingertips. A rotary AMG DYNAMIC SELECT knob offers four preset modes plus an Individual setup. Pushbuttons offer individual control of the 3-stage ESP®, shifting, suspension, exhaust and ECO Start/Stop, along with the engine's KEYLESS-START button. The distinctive AMG E-SELECT gear lever lets you engage R, N and D with a gentle nudge, and engage the Park position with a simple tap of a button.
From its finely finished cockpit to its abundance of styling choices, you can have your AMG GT tailored to fit. Hand-fitted upholstery is complemented by an array of sleek, modern trim options for the console and other elements. For the exterior, express your passion with six wheel designs, gloss or matte paint, and three styling packages.
Directly inspired by racing, the deeply contoured AMG Performance seats feature integrated head restraints with aluminum accents and AMG badges. In addition to the customary power adjustments, the substantial side bolsters in the cushion and backrest are also power-adjustable for optimal lateral support. A 3-position memory system for each seat also stores the power steering column and side mirror settings for the driver. Three-stage heating is standard.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Crafted almost entirely from aluminum, the core of the AMG GT's impeccable performance is its high-strength spaceframe. Cast, extruded and stamped aluminum composes 97% of its weight, with magnesium and advanced polymers among the remainder. Weighing a mere 514 lbs, the spaceframe delivers class-leading torsional and longitudinal rigidity.
The AMG DYNAMIC PLUS Package hones every aspect of AMG GT S performance to an even sharper edge. Dynamic engine and transmission mounts use electromagnetic fluid, progressively stiffening to keep handling precise. Power peaks over a wider rev-range in the Manual and Race modes. And chassis tuning is reprofiled for more aggressive handling.
Red seat belts make two bold statements: One for their racing-inspired style, and one asserting their role as the heart of an AMG safety philosophy that's equally important on the street and on the racetrack.
Neatly integrated with the transaxle, the differential locks with even greater precision and speed.
