Mercedes Drops New Photos Of Its Beautiful AMG GT [162 Pics]

The latest and most fresh offering from the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz has gained a new portfolio so we can drool over our screens.

The AMG GT is a really important model for Mercedes because it signifies the beginning of a new era for their performance models. The years of the naturally aspirated V8 brutes are over, with Mercedes AMG adopting the downsizing trend and giving us a genuine rival to the Porsche 911 in the form of the twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 AMG GT.

It’s good to see that Mercedes stayed with the classic GT proportions of the SLS for the AMG GT, with its overall shape featuring clean lines and an unmistakable muscular presence.

The base GT model produces 456hp with 0-62mph (0-100km/h) coming in 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 189mph (304km/h) while the GT S takes the power up to 503hp, requiring 0.2 seconds less for the same figure, with a top speed of 193mph (311 km/h).

And if these specs are not enough to keep you from buying that 911, you might want to know that Mercedes is preparing an even hotter Black Series version.

    Beautiful design. Reminiscent of a Series-1 Jaguar E-type Coupe from certain some angles.

    The dark silver/grey is definitely the way to go.

    A base model V8 super car with less than 500hp is dreadfully boring and dated if you ask me. What’s it supposed to be competing with, the Maserati GranTurismo? And a range topping 503hp? really? The M5 has way more power, the CTS-V has more power. I understand the 911 not having 500 horsepower standard across the range because it’s base model doesn’t cost access of $100k. Value wise this is a bust of a car. You can get the CLS63 S with 577hp for $106k versus the $129k for the GT S with only 503hp even the new C63 S has the same engine and same power for $72k… Is Mercedes trying to shoot themselves in the foot or compete with the 911?

      I see what you’re saying but a couple of things to keep in mind. Firstly, M5, CTS-V and CLS63 wouldnt be cross-shopped with this car. Chances are if you’re in the market for this you already have your CLS in the garage. Either ways you’re not deciding between this and a sports sedan.

      Secondly, HP is only one of many factors to decide on when buying a car like this. I highly doubt that the CTS-V will drive better than this. It won’t feel as nice nor as luxurious. This is a Sport GT and I can’t think of any sedan that could replace the feeling of driving a powerful GT. NTM 4 sec 0-60 is nothing to complain about. Thats 911/R8 territory

        I don’t expect the cars to be crossed shopped, i’m just saying if a brand is going to make a car like the AMG GT it needs to be at least as powerful as the other V8 AMG models and it’s not even close. It’s sad. The smaller sedan out preforms this “super car” and it gets dropped kicked by the 911 Turbo and Turbo S. It gets dropped kicked by the SL63 and with that you can get a hardtop drop top. even with the extra weight the power difference is still enough to make up for it. The base model R8 with the V8 only has 430hp but the V10 out powers the GT and the V10 Plus destroys it. The M6 regular and Gran Coupe out power the AMG GT with 560hp. the Corvette Z06 has 650hp. The fact of the matter is this car is greatly underpowered and heavily over priced especially if trying to compete with the 911.

    the only thing they should drop is the price so i can finally buy one LOL

  • Not liking it at all.
    Profile looks like they did not know what to do with it.
    Headlights all across the current range of Mercedes = FAIL.
