2015 Mercedes-AMG GT: first interior photos revealed

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 16, 2014

Mercedes-Benz has just announced that this autumn it will unveil its latest sports car: the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT. As you can see, the interior of the new Mercedes-AMG GT is inspired by airplanes, typical for Mercedes-Benz sports car.

The dashboard creates an impression of a powerful wing and its effect is supported by the four central spotlight-style air vents as well as the vents at the left and the right.

The stylish controls of the AMG Drive Unit are arranged like eight cylinders in a V layout. The rest of the interior is dominated by the fine red and black leather, but also by the sport buckets. Unfortunately, there is not much to say about the interior, but we’d love to take the new car for a spin, this is for sure.

According to several reports, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT will be powered by a newly developed 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will deliver 400 hp, 500 hp in the most powerful version and around 570 hp in the Black Series version.

The new twin-turbo V8 will replace the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine found on the SLS AMG and the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 used by the other AMG models from Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz is expected to use the same AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-Tronic automatic transmission. Although it didn’t give us any clue, Mercedes-Benz will unveil the new vehicle at the 2014 Paris Motor Show!

Press Release

The new Mercedes-AMG GT

A new AMG high-performance automobile is all set for its world premiere in the autumn of 2014. The Mercedes-AMG GT will thrill sports car fans throughout the world with breath-taking design and supreme agility. Fascinating, dynamic - and versatile into the bargain: the GT is destined for a new segment - turning the dream of the authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car into reality.

"The new Mercedes-AMG GT shows that we will be positioning AMG more vehemently and aggressively than to date as a dynamic sports car brand," notes Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The technological substance of the Mercedes-AMG GT underscores our high aspirations with regard to driving dynamics, agility and sportiness. Following the global success of the SLS AMG, the new GT is the second sports car developed fully independently by Mercedes-AMG. An initial exclusive look at the design of the interior shows what is in store for our customers: a GT sports car in its purest form."

The sensual purity of a superlative driving machine

A sneak preview of the interior provides an alluring foretaste of the new Mercedes-AMG GT: the interior design embodies emotion and sensuality like no other sports car. The uncompromising lines of the interior components and their authentic materials exude a clarity that uses contrasting effects to help define the concept of "modern luxury".

A dominant aspect in the cockpit of the GT is the further stylistic development of the central "aviation design" theme which is typical of Mercedes-Benz sports cars. The dashboard places an extreme emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing. This effect is supported by the four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at the left and right ends of the dashboard. The dominant centre console presents a correspondingly dynamic character: its shaping reminiscent of a NACA air intake and the employed materials suggest that it has been adopted directly from motor racing. Another clever design feature comes in the form of the controls on the AMG DRIVE UNIT, which are arranged like eight cylinders in a V layout, further bolstering the powerful and high-tech impression made by the centre console.

Enough to set pulses racing even when stationary

The interior of the Mercedes-AMG GT also boasts a fascinatingly exclusive look and feel, with the finest materials and outstanding workmanship combining to conjure up a setting that simply exudes class. As such, the exclusive interior of the Mercedes-AMG GT is enough to get one truly hooked on this vehicle even while it is still at a standstill. Designed to set the driver's and front passenger's pulses racing even before the car moves off, it provides an enticing intimation of the superlative dynamic performance that can be expected of the new GT when its AMG V8 is brought to life.
