2015 Mercedes-AMG GT Edition 1 shows up with a fixed rear wing

Article by Christian A., on September 25, 2014

Before you hurry up and buy your brand new 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT you’d better take a look at the Edition 1 variant. This version arrives with a special grey exterior finish, high-gloss black elements on the front bumper, high-gloss black mirror covers and window frame. At the rear, we find a fixed wing, black-chromed twin end pipe fairings and a high-gloss black air diffuser.

In addition, Mercedes-AMG offers a new set of dual-tone multi-spoke wheels. Inside, we expect to see a flat-bottomed steering wheel featuring a silver fairing with ‘Edition 1’ lettering and silver-coloured aluminum shift paddles, special floor mats, performance seats and special trim elements.

Available on the GT and GT S models, the Edition 1 versions get the same M178 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine. On the Mercedes-AMG GT, the engine delivers 462 hp (340 kW) and 600 Nm of torque, that can push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds, with a top speed limited at 304 km/h or 188.8 mph.

On the Mercedes-AMG GT S, the engine develops 510 hp (375 kW) and this model can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, with a top speed limited at 310 km/h or 192.6 mph.

On both models, the engine is bolted to the 7-Speed AMG Speedshift MCT sport transmission, while power is delivered to the rear wheels.
