The most expensive model, the Mercedes-AMG GT S Edition 1 will start at 122,745 GBP.

The Mercedes-AMG GT will debut in in the UK in late 2015 and will use the same dry sump engine as the GT S, but detuned at 462 hp at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm. This model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds, while top speed is 189 mph or 304 km/h.

Mercedes-AMG GT will arrive as standard with 19-inch wheels, a mechanical limited slip differential, an AMG performance exhaust, Comand Online with an 8.4-inch screen, an AMG sports suspension and an adjustable rear wing.

The GT S Edition one receives a fixed rear wing, new front splitter, high-gloss silver and black 19-inch wheels on the front/20-inch wheels at the rear, a carbon fiber roof, black mirror covers and matching window surrounds, rear diffuser and black exhaust tips. AMG sport seats will be available as an option and will cost 1,895 GBP, while the GT S Edition 1 will get them as standard.

If you want to driver your vehicle on the track, then the AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system is a must and costs 5,995 GBP. For 4,195 GBP you can get the Premium Pack and your vehicle will receive a reversing camera, a mirror package, a fixed panoramic sunroof, a powerful 640W Burmester sound system and keyless-go.

APPROACHING, FAST: UK ORDERING OPENS FOR MERCEDES-AMG GT, GT S, GT S EDITION 1

The all-new Mercedes-AMG GT has opened for ordering in the UK – with prices starting at £97,195.

The first example set to arrive in the UK in April 2015 will be the GT S and GT S Edition 1 variants – powered by an all-new 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine developing 510 hp at 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 4,750 rpm. This endows the GT S with the ability to accelerate from rest to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 193 mph.

The GT – set to arrive in the UK in late 2015 – uses the same dry sump V8, albeit in 462 hp guise – developed at 6,000 rpm. The GT produces 600 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm – allowing it to accelerate to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds before reaching 189 mph.

Every GT will be comprehensively specified – 19 inch wheels (front and rear) are joined by a mechanical limited slip differential, a switchable AMG performance exhaust, COMAND Online (complete with an 8.4-inch screen), AMG sports suspension and an adjustable electronic rear wing.

The GT S adds 20 inch rear wheels, red brake callipers clamping enlarged discs, an electronically-controlled rear differential, AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with three selectable modes and an increase in power from 462 hp to 510 hp.

The GT S Edition 1 brings with it even greater visual presence – from the fixed rear wing and accompanying deep front splitter extending up to the airdams, just ahead of aerodynamic flicks on the front wings. High-gloss silver and black 19 inch (front) and 20 inch (rear) wheels, a carbon roof, a set of black mirror surrounds with matching window surrounds and rear diffuser and black exhaust tips complete the enhancements. Inside, red contrast stitching is joined by a leather and suede finish for the special AMG performance seats and the steering wheel and a centre console in ‘Black Diamond’ textured finish.

The Mercedes-AMG GT can be specified to exacting requirements of the customer. Across the range there are two non-metallic, four metallic and five designo paint choices – from a subtle black to a vivid AMG Solarbeam yellow – accompanied by four wheel designs to choose from on the GT, three on the GT S and two on the GT S Edition 1.

Inside, there are 14 leather and five centre console colour combinations and finishes to choose from – as well as two different styles of seats, from the AMG sport seats to the more track-orientated AMG performance seats (£1,895 - standard on the GT S Edition1). For those intending to take their GT on track, there’s the option of an AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system – £5,995 – providing even greater stopping power than the AMG high-performance steel composite brake system which is fitted as standard.

Useful additions on a day-to-day basis include the Premium Pack (£4,195) – encompassing a reversing camera, a mirror package, a fixed panoramic sunroof, a powerful 640W Burmester sound system and keyless-go.

The GT is the second car entirely engineered by Mercedes-AMG – the first being the SLS AMG – with which it shares a similarly acute level of driver-focus. For instance, the AMG Dynamic Plus Package (£1,795) on the GT S and GT S Edition 1, features cutting-edge dynamic engine mounts to deliver greater steering feel and refinement when desired through either stiffening or softening the engine and transmission mounts. The result means the GT can strike a balance between being driven hard, and being viable for everyday use.
