Mercedes-Benz and AMG have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind luxury sport performance vehicle that boasts a myriad of engineering innovations that give it a clear advantage on the track.
There is no lack of remarkable engineering achievements in the current luxury sports performance industry. All over the world, automotive engineers are creating some of the fastest and most efficient vehicles ever and these incredible vehicle capabilities continue to improve with each passing year. One of the most remarkable new vehicles to enter the market recently is the result of two industry leaders working together to create something new and special. Mercedes-Benz and AMG have worked together to bring the Mercedes-AMG to the world this year and have given the vehicle a slew of unique qualities that propel it forwards as a leader in its class.
The Mercedes-AMG GT is only the second car to be built by AMG and stays true to its racing heritage. The vehicle is built on an SLS platform modified for the new design. Once they had the base in place, AMG made no compromises as they engineered it for speed, agility, and exceptional handling.
Impressive Power from a Unique V8
The heart of the Mercedes-AMG GT S is the impressive V8 engine capable of 503hp and 479lb-ft of torque. With so much power pumping through its veins, the GT S barely breaks a sweat as it rockets from 0 to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds. On the track, the vehicle tops out at a stunning 193mph with strength to spare. Critics have commended the vehicle for its exceptional handling and impressive power.
Another reason the Mercedes-AMG GT S is able to post such impressive stats is the remarkably efficient design. Again, AMG engineers made no compromises on quality with the overall design. The sports car features a curb weight of 3,695lbs balanced perfectly for optimal power and weight distribution. The 7-speed transmission is placed at the rear of the vehicle and features an electronic differential for flawless performance. An automatic rear spoiler engages at speeds over 75mph and optional carbon ceramic brakes provide controlled braking and handling on and off the track.
So there you have it. The Mercedes-AMG GT S is as stunning and impressive as we hoped it would be and is ready and waiting for the chance to push the limits of the road and track. Drivers can watch for the car to arrive in the coming months and can follow updates and information from Mercedes through Santa Barbara Auto Group. Base price for the AMG GT S will start around $150,000.
