Mercedes-AMG unveiled the all-new GT sports car which will replace the SLS AMG. The GT is the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG and it will be available in two flavors: as a GT with 456 hp (340 kW) and as a GT S with 503 hp (375 kW).

The new two-seater also features the first sports car engine from AMG with internally mounted turbochargers ('hot inside V').

Mercedes-AMG GT's Exterior Design

"The new Mercedes-AMG GT is a sports car in its purist form", says Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design Daimler AG. "Breathtaking proportions, powerfully sculpted surfaces and flowing lines turn the new AMG into a contemporary sports car which embodies the spirit of the glorious Mercedes sports cars. The GT is a consummate combination of beauty and intelligence."

The two-seater is characterized by hallmark rear-wheel-drive proportions. The long hood with its pronounced powerdomes, the greenhouse which has been moved far back, the large wheels and broad tail end make up the distinctive looks. Additionally, the large deck lid conceals a practical luggage compartment.

As standard, the GT is shod in 10-spoke light-alloy wheels, 9 x 19 inch (front) and 11 x 19 inch (rear), with 255/35 R 19 and 295/35 R 19 tires.

Inside: Sensual Purity

The interior design embodies emotion and sensual purity. 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 an impression of a powerful wing dominates the cockpit of the GT. Four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at each end of the dashboard reinforce this impression.

The dominant center console with features lifted straight from motor racing by virtue of its styling that is reminiscent of a NACA air intake. Its surfaces are available with numerous trim options providing the customer ultimate stylistic choice of silver chrome, matte carbon fiber, high-gloss carbon fiber, black diamond and matte silver fiberglass. Attention to detail is also echoed in the AMG DRIVE UNIT controls: they are arranged like eight cylinders in a V layout.

The most important control for sports car fans is located in the AMG DRIVE UNIT on the left-hand side: the button for starting the engine, which is aptly labeled "Engine Start Stop" and illuminates in red.
