2016 Mercedes-AMG® GT – Design
503 hp and 479 lb-ft: Seamless thrust, seemingly endless.
An all-new handcrafted 503-hp 4.0-liter V-8 thrusts power into a new era. Twin turbos mounted inside the “V” force-feed massive boost to each Direct Injected cylinder, and express-deliver 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. All 479 lb-ft of its torque is unleashed at just 1,750 rpm, with a growling exhaust note you can revel in or reel in, as you wish.
AMG® Adaptive Suspension: Track instincts, street smarts.
The 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension adheres to its racing principles, and to every curve and contour. Highly rigid, lightweight forged aluminum components include new direct-mounting of the rear coil-overs to the wheel hub carriers. Electronically controlled damping adapts to the road, the track, and with three modes, to your desires.
DYNAMIC PLUS: Progressive ideas, aggressive results.
Honing every aspect of performance to an even sharper edge is the AMG® DYNAMIC PLUS Package. Dynamic engine and transmission mounts use electromagnetic fluid, progressively stiffening to keep handling precise. In the Manual and Race modes, horsepower peaks over a wider range of rpm. And chassis tuning is re-profiled for more aggressive handling.
Rear-mounted transaxle: Instant shifting, ideal balance.
Rigidly linked to the V-8 by a carbon-fiber driveshaft, the rear-mounted 7-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT®® DCT transaxle helps create the car’s ideal 47:53 front/rear balance. With 4 selectable modes, speedier shifts, rev-matching, a Race Start launch function, and new electronic limited-slip differential, it’s alarmingly quick yet astoundingly seamless.
Perfect proportions, with an extra portion of power.
The tautly drawn shape of the AMG® GT S is sculpted to conquer wind and weight, and capture stares and hearts. Its proportions celebrate its rear-wheel-drive power and ideally balanced chassis. Every brilliant detail combines purpose with poise. The result is at once timeless and trendsetting, and a sports car that seduces your gaze to linger.
Driving controls, designed for driver control.
The AMG® GT S cockpit envelops your body, heightens your senses, and connects with your driving instincts. The dramatically wide console and crisp instruments are inspired by the precision of aviation. The thick steering wheel and intuitive controls put you in command and at ease. Deeply contoured AMG® Performance seats support your every move.
Custom-tailored, from the finest materials.
From its finely finished cockpit to its abundance of styling choices, you can have your AMG® GT S tailored to fit. Supple Nappa leathers are complemented by an array of sleek, modern trim options for the console and other elements. For the exterior, express your passion with six wheel designs, gloss or matte paint, and three styling packages.
Grips the road, rewards your grip on the wheel.
Every AMG® GT S grips the road via high-performance tires and precision-crafted wheels that are staggered in width and diameter. The 19″ front and 20″ rear wheels are sized to optimize power delivery and steering feel. Six choices include cast- or forged-alloy construction and three finishes, from shimmering silver to menacing matte black.
AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT: A new twist on total control.
With AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT, a twist of a knob on the console dials in any of four modes. Each one adapts the throttle maps, gear changes, suspension setup, exhaust sound and more to your driving desires, from Comfort to Sport to Race. An Individual mode lets you make your own mode. And buttons for each element give you total control at any time.
touchpad COMMAND: Easy to reach, easy to grasp.
An intuitive new touchpad and sleek yet sizable 8.4″ screen present your entertainment, navigation and available Internet-based apps via multi-finger gestures and animated displays. Between the crisp analog gauges, another screen offers an exclusive AMG® menu, so you can keep an eye on turbo boost, oil temperature, speed and gear selection.
Spaceframe construction: Intelligent metals, indisputable mettle.
Crafted almost entirely from aluminum, the core of the AMG® GT’s impeccable performance is its high-strength Spaceframe. Cast, extruded and stamped aluminum composes 97% of its weight, with magnesium and advanced polymers among the remainder. Weighing a mere 514 lbs, the spaceframe delivers class-leading torsional and longitudinal rigidity.
Innovative safety: An eye to the future, to look out for yours.
Standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS uses radar to continually monitor traffic ahead. If it detects that you’re approaching a slower vehicle too quickly, it alerts you to brake. It can even start braking for you, to help lessen a possible collision. ATTENTION ASSIST®® keeps its “eyes” on you, alerting you if it senses you’re getting drowsy.
