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!
Gorden Wagener, Vice President of Design Daimler AG, called the new Mercedes-AMG GT as a sports car in its purist form. He also called the AMG GT as a contemporary sports car that embodies the spirit of the brand’s glorious sports cars, as conveyed through its spectacular proportions, flowing line and sculpted surfaces. He also described the new AMG GT as a perfect combination of beauty and intelligence.
Exemplifying the sensual purity of sportiness and emotion, the Mercedes-AMG GT boasts of rear-wheel-drive proportions as well as a front mid-engine layout that allows for optimal weight distribution, which in turn delivers remarkable driving dynamics. The characteristic appearance of the new AMG GT is marked by its long bonnet with pronounced powerdomes, the set-back passenger compartment, broad tail end and large wheels.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT takes pride of its sensuous character and sculpture-like looks, as made possible by positively arched surfaces. Its side profile is defined by its dome-shaped arched roof line, frameless doors as well as a muscular element sculpted out of the side wall, which lends the car a strong sense of movement even when at a standstill. Meanwhile, the surfaces and lines on the flanks smoothly flow into the rear section, although lines in the shoulder region are non-existent.
There is only one line, which is positioned down low and picked up in the rear bumper, and it helps stretch the body of the AMG GT. Just like Mercedes’ sports cars, the new AMG GT has side air outlets, each with two fins. However, the aerials of the sports car aren’t visible, helping create a clean overall appearance.
