Along with the more powerful engine, the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT S comes as
standard with a performance exhaust system, electronic locking diff and
electronically controlled damping.
According to AMG, the GT S has everything you would expect from an authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car - from the characteristic styling, thoroughbred motorsport technology to the optimum weight distribution. Top figures such as 3.7 seconds from 0-60 mph (preliminary) and a top speed of 193 mph (310 km/h), combined with the outstanding driving dynamics will undoubtedly translate into extremely fast laps on the racetrack.
At the same time, this two-seater features a relatively large luggage compartment and high level of comfort on long journeys.
GT S' Muscular and Dramatic Exterior
Large air intakes in the front apron optimize the flow of air to the cooling modules, while the the characteristic A-wing design with a front splitter makes the sports car appear low-slung and wide. Finished in high-gloss black on the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GT S, the front splitter accentuates the aggressive look.
Viewed from the side, the domeshaped, arched roof line and the frameless doors are eye-catching features. A muscular element sculpted out of the side wall creates a sense of lightness and movement, even when the vehicle is at a standstill. The surfaces and lines of the side wall flow into the rear-end with a dramatic tapered effect.
Customers can also customize the exterior and options available include the Exterior Silver Chrome package, the Night package and the Exterior Carbon-Fiber package.
Interior: Quality and Everyday Practicality
Upon opening the door, the driver is greeted by the AMG start-up screen as an animated GT appears on the TFT display in the instrument cluster. The sportily designed instrument cluster in carbon fiber pattern provides information with two classic circular instruments with a in a 2-tube look and a 220 mph speedometer scale. The performance steering wheel with its three-spoke design sits perfectly in the hand: it comes with aluminum shift paddles, 12 o'clock marking and a steering wheel rim in black nappa leather with flattened bottom section. The sports seats featuring the AMG logo come in Nappa leather as standard with integral head restraints and provide optimized lateral support when driving dynamically.
The DYNAMIC SELECT Controller, the buttons for the engine start, the 3-stage ESP and, depending on the equipment, the electronic damper control are located on the left in the AMG DRIVE UNIT. The volume control as well as the buttons for the manual transmission drive mode, the ECO start/stop function and, likewise depending on the equipment, the selectable exhaust system are fitted on the right-hand side. The innovative touchpad in the handrest above the COMAND Controller is integrated in front of the E-SELECT selector lever to operate the dual clutch transmission. A free-standing central display is located centrally above the four ventilation outlets. The vehicle comes standard with an 8.4-inch screen with COMAND. Seat heating, PARKTRONIC, hazard warning lights and the optional extendable rear spoiler can all be operated via buttons in the top control panel in the roof frame.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GT S comes with more sophisticated equipment and appointments, including an instrument cluster with 220 mph speedometer scale and red color highlights, performance steering wheel, AMG Affalterbach Crest embossed in the center armrest and Nappa leather.
