Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8s place their twin turbos between their banks for quicker response. Dry sump design moves their oil supply aside, for lower engine mounting. In the 469-hp AMG GT, 60 mph arrives in 3.9 seconds. In the 550-hp AMG GT C, just 3.6 seconds.
Forged aluminum dominates the 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension. Coil-overs at the rear are hub-mounted for extreme precision. The GT C adds active rear-wheel steering and AMG RIDE CONTROL with 3-stage damping. AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in the throttle, shifting, chassis, exhaust and more.
The 7-speed, multimode AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT transaxle is rear-mounted, to help create the GT's ideal 47:53 front/rear balance. A carbon-fiber driveshaft links it to the front-mid-mounted V8. Lightning-quick shifts, a limited-slip differential and torque vectoring precisely deliver power to pavement.
Sculpted AMG Performance seats combine sporting support with enduring comfort. Performance controls fall readily to hand, with color display buttons arrayed in a V on the wide console. A spectrum of cabin appointments, wheel choices, paint hues and styling packages let you make a powerful personal statement.
With a sonorous exhaust note you can unleash at the touch of a button, you're going to want to drive top-down as often as possible. Along with heated seats, standard AIRSCARF® can envelop your neck and shoulders in warmed air, turning a cool evening into the perfect time for an open-air drive.
A console controller and 10.25-inch central screen deliver entertainment, navigation and apps with animated displays and intuitive menus. The new 12.3-inch digital instruments offer multiple gauge designs and exclusive AMG readouts of turbo boost, oil temperature, speed and gear selection.

Radar-based Active Brake Assist can help you avoid some frontal collisions, and can even initiate braking. ATTENTION ASSIST® can help sense a drowsy driver. Front and rearview cameras, PARKTRONIC, and available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help smooth your moves from the driveway to the highway.
