The new Mercedes AMG GT. The second series-production model from Mercedes-Benz’s performance car division in Affalterbach, Germany, following on from the recently discontinued SLS AMG.
The rear-wheel-drive performance coupé shares elements of its body structure with its predecessor and is the first Mercedes-AMG model to use a newly developed twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine.
The GT is scheduled to reach the UK during the first quarter of next year.
“With the new GT, we are positioning Mercedes-AMG even more aggressively than to date,” said the chief executive of AMG, Tobias Moers.
Buyers will be able to choose between a standard GT and a more powerful GT S, although only the GT S is planned for delivery initially. The two are set apart visually by different bumpers, tailpipes and wheels.
Pricing is not planned to be made public until orders start in October. However, its believed that the standard GT will be priced from around £95,000, with the GT S commanding a premium at around £110,000. Either way, thats significantly less than the £168,485 of the SLS AMG.
