LED high-performance headlamps in a sportily striking look
AMG Light-Alloy Wheels.
The Mercedes-AMG GT comes standard-equipped with 10-spoke light-alloy, 9 x 19 inch (front) and 11 x 19 inch (rear) silver wheels, with 255/35 R 19 and 295/35 R 19 tires. A host of different design and color variants are available as options such as the ultralight forged wheels in cross-spoke design, in black matte with high-sheen rim flange and fully integrated wheel bolt covers.
Also new are light-alloy wheels with mixed tires such as the 5-twin-spoke 48.3/50.8 cm (19/20-inch) wheel in high-sheen titanium gray, 265/35 R 19 on 9 J x 19 ET61 at the front and 295/30 R 20 on 11 J x 20 ET68 at the rear, or the 5-twin-spoke 48.3/50.8 cm (19/20-inch) wheel in high-sheen matte black, 265/35 R 19 on 9 J x 19 ET61 at the front and 295/30 R 20 on 11 J x 20 ET68 at the rear (both available from Q3 2017).
AMG High-Performance Composite Braking System.
Large, internally ventilated and perforated brake disks provide excellent deceleration. The use of composite technology increases fade resistance and reduces weight. This weight reduction lowers the unsprung masses on the wheel, thereby improving the response of the spring/damper elements.
AMG ceramic, high-performance composite brake system
The AMG ceramic, high-performance composite brake system offers braking performance like at the race track. It is immediately recognizable by the special bronze brake calipers with black "AMG Carbon Ceramic" lettering. Made of a carbon fiber reinforced ceramic material, the disks are produced under vacuum conditions at 1700 degrees Celsius. This special material and the applied production process give the brake discs a particularly high degree of hardness. The resulting resistance to extreme loads and heat gives rise to a service life many times longer than that of a gray cast-iron brake disc. The ceramic brake discs are around 40% lighter than conventional composite brake discs.
AMG sports exhaust system
The emotive, hallmark AMG V8 sound is particularly powerful when accelerating. At a constant speed, the noise level is more reserved. Two integral chrome-plated tailpipe trim elements create a visually striking highlight.
AMG Performance exhaust system, selectable
Emotionally appealing soundscape or discreet background noise: adjustable exhaust gas flaps allow the sound of the AMG Performance exhaust system to be regulated to suit the driver's preference. To do so, the driver simply presses the exhaust flap button in the center console. The transmission mode that is selected also influences the sound characteristics.
Special features of the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system:
- The driver can adjust sound characteristics by using the exhaust flap button in the center console, or by selecting the appropriate transmission mode using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller, in a range that extends from moderately sonorous to emphatically sporty
- Adjustment via two variable exhaust gas flaps without any effect on performance
- Sporty and emotionally stirring sound when the exhaust gas flaps are open
- Quieter cold starts
Based on its extensive standard equipment, the Mercedes-AMG GT offers plenty of room for individual wishes.
AMG Aerodynamics package
A large front splitter that ends in flics at the front wheel arches, and a fixed rear wing and flics on the front wheel arches increase the negative lift force. Consequently, handling is improved at high speeds, in particular lateral acceleration, driving stability and the braking distance. The Aerodynamics package is rounded off by specific side skirt attachments that create a strikingly sporty look.
AMG Exterior Carbon package
With sporty details in carbon fiber, this package brings a significant level of dynamism to the vehicle when viewed at any angle. The front splitter, the fins in the wing, the exterior mirror housing and the single-section diffuser in the rear apron are made of carbon fiber.
AMG Exterior Chrome package
The high-quality high-gloss chrome finish lends select exterior elements a uniform appearance in terms of color, shine and quality. It stands out thanks to its cool, highly transparent look.
AMG Exterior Night package
Elements in high-gloss black underscore the vehicle's expressiveness and sportiness from the front splitter and the radiator grille louvre, to the exterior mirror housings. The effect is made complete by two black tailpipe trim elements.
AMG. Up close.
The interior design embodies maximum emotion and sensual purity. Radically low, sporty proportions create a unique sense of spaciousness. Clearly drawn components and their authentic materials highlight the dynamic character and instantly generate excitement: Anyone opening the door discovers an exciting interplay between the deep, sloping dashboard and a dominant, arched high center console; a design which evokes emotions and impresses with its perfection.

The central "aviation design" theme, which is the hallmark of Mercedes-Benz sports cars, has been restyled. The extreme emphasis on the width of the dashboard, which creates the impression of a powerful wing, dominates the cockpit of the Mercedes-AMG GT. Four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at the right and left ends of the dashboard reinforce this impression. In conjunction with the high beltlines, the concave-shaped door paneling and the dynamic center console, the Mercedes-AMG GT comes across as a genuine driving machine and consummately integrates the driver into the cockpit, thanks to the low seat position.
AMG DRIVE UNIT.
Featuring controls in a stylized V8 arrangement, the AMG DRIVE UNIT is the control center for the sports transmission as well as all driving dynamics functions. The AMG E-SELECT selector lever, the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller and various buttons can be used to adjust the mode, transmission and ESP®, for example. The suspension and the exhaust system can also be adjusted, depending on the car's equipment. The driver can change between the R, N and D transmission settings in the most direct manner possible just by nudging the AMG E-SELECT lever. When the vehicle is stationary, the Park position is activated by simply pressing the "P" button. This happens automatically when the engine is switched off.
The AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller can be used to call up the predefined modes, "Comfort" (C), "Sport" (S) and "Sport Plus" (S+), plus an individually configurable mode (I*). In so doing, each individual mode changes the vehicle parameters depending on the vehicle equipment, the aim being to offer the driver an optimum driving experience in every driving situation. Selecting a mode changes the settings for the drive system, the transmission tuning, the steering, the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension (optional), the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system (optional), the ESP®, and the ECO Start/Stop function. The "M" button activates manual mode, which allows the driver to change gear manually at all times. In addition, the AMG DRIVE UNIT has a button for selecting the ESP® levels, a button for manually adjusting the optional AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, a button for the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system and, depending on the car's equipment, a button for manually controlling the retractable rear aerofoil.
Performance Steering Wheel.
For outstanding vehicle control, the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather features a flattened bottom section as well as perforated grip areas. The sporty design is completed by silver-colored aluminum shift paddles and a 12-o'clock marking.
For an even better grip during sporty maneuvers, the grip area is optionally available finished in DINAMICA microfiber.
The AMG sports seats in the Mercedes-AMG GT provide good lateral support for both the driver and the front passenger, even under high lateral acceleration, and offer exceptional seating comfort. Their distinctive contours, the AMG badges and the integrated head restraints all come together to emphasize the car's sporty look.
The more pronounced seat contours and the adjustable side bolsters of the optional AMG Performance seats improve quite tangibly the lateral support given to the driver and front passenger. Their distinctive design gives the interior a sporty flair all of its own.
Always ready for the next challenge. Always ready to give more: You press the start button, the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine with dry sump lubrication springs into life, and the powerful bass of the sports exhaust system begins to reverberate. With a maximum output of 350 kW (476 hp) and torque of 630 Nm, how ecstatic will you be when the engine catapults the Mercedes-AMG GT from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds?
Thanks to its AMG sports suspension and double wishbone layout, the Mercedes-AMG GT impresses with its excellent lateral dynamics and driving stability at high speeds. Using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller, you can adjust the handling to ideally suit the driving conditions: available for this purpose are the three preconfigured transmission modes, "C," "S," "S+", and the individual transmission mode "I."

AMG Sports Suspension.
The AMG sports suspension of the Mercedes-AMG GT is remarkable in its practicality in everyday driving. It also delivers impressive racetrack performance thanks to a perfect implementation of the double-wishbone concept that has proven to be so successful in motorsport. This is made evident by the car's excellent lateral dynamics and driving stability at high speeds, as well as in the ease, with which it compensates for external influences such as crosswinds, surface undulations and friction level changes. The driver also benefits from stable and harmonious handling at the critical limits.
AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension
The AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with adaptive adjustable damping provides three different suspension modes. The driver is able to choose between "Comfort," "Sport" and "Sport+" with the touch of a button, or by selecting the mode that optimizes the damping characteristics for the current driving situation from highly comfortable for cruising, to sporty and firm for cornering at speed, for example. The suspension also delivers impressive racetrack performance thanks to its implementation of the double-wishbone concept, which has proven to be so successful in motorsports.
AMG Speed-Sensitive Sports Steering.
The AMG speed-sensitive sports steering supports a sporty driving style with a variable steering ratio and direct cornering properties. Depending on the selected suspension set-up, the steering characteristics are adapted for sporty or comfortable steering feedback.
AMG Dynamic Plus Package.
Even more enhanced vehicle dynamics and even sportier vehicle handling come courtesy of the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package. In addition to dynamic engine and transmission mounts, it includes a more firmly tuned sports suspension and specifically tuned steering. The result is better performance with optimized handling. An AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfiber plus yellow highlights in the instrument cluster complete the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package.
