The Mercedes-AMG GT is the German brand’s brand-new halo automobile, trimmer as well as tighter compared to the SLS AMG it changes. The GT is elegant, quick, and also very, very agile, as well as we believe that it is just one of the best supercars ever developed.
The GT is the 2nd car created totally internal by Mercedes’ AMG department, a follow-up to the gullwing SLS AMG. Introduced as a 2016 design as well as based upon the exact same design as the SLS, the GT is much shorter, lighter, devoid of gullwing doors, and, one could suggest, poorly called. “‘Grand visiting’ is not this car’s goal,” Frank Markus created in our first drive. “Instead, it’s developed to knock Porsche’s legendary 911 off its sports-car throne while warding off Audi’s R8, Jag’s F-Type, and also high-end Corvettes.” The GT’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 creates 456 hp and also 443 lb-ft of torque in the GT version and 503 hp as well as 479 lb-ft in the GT S we checked, driving the rear wheels using a seven-speed twin-clutch transmission.
Mercedes-AMG have strategies to broaden the GT schedule for the 2018 design year. Covering the load will certainly be the 577-hp GT R; together with the horsepower bump (as well as a torque increase to 516 lb-ft), the GT R gets a track-tuned suspension with a wider track and rear-wheel guiding. A brand-new GT C design will slot between the S and R, supplying 550 hp as well as 502 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes-AMG is also presenting an exchangeable variation, a replacement for the SLS Roadster which was decreased in 2015. The GT Roadster will certainly be provided in GT as well as GT C variations.
