Earlier today we told you folks that the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT will start at 115,430 euros, while the GT S will cost 134,351 euros, in Germany of course and including 19% VAT. Now, it is time to take a look at the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S Edition 1, which starts at 148,512 euros in Germany, including 19% VAT.

The special edition is powered by the same 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine that delivers 510 hp (375 kW) and 650 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 4,750 rpm. This model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds, while top speed is 310 km/h or 192.6 mph.

Fuel consumption is 9.4 l/100 km, while CO2 emissions are 219 g/km. As expected, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S Edition 1 arrives with a special design so it’s time to focus on that. Fitted with the Aerodynamic package in black, the GT S Edition 1 gets a front splitter, wheel arch flics at the front, dynamic black trim on the side sills as well as a new fixed rear wing.

Moreover, the vehicle received a carbon fiber roof. In addition, the GT S Edition 1 received the Night package which adds a diamond grille in black with louvre in high-gloss black, fins in the front wings in high-gloss black, exterior mirror housings in high-gloss black, trim strip in the diffuser insert in high-gloss black, triangular side windows in rear window in heat-insulating tinted glass and tailpipes painted in black.

Exterior design is completed by the 10-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in black and with a high-sheen finish. Inside, the GT S Edition 1 gets black nappa leather with red topstitching, performance seats wrapped in black nappa leather/Dinamica microfiber with red stitching, Interior Black Diamond package, a performance flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped in Dinamica microfiber and featuring a wheel bezel in silver chrome with ‘Edition 1’ lettering as well as silver-coloured aluminum shift paddles.

Exterior Design

As described by the Vice President for Design at Daimler AG, Gorden Wagener, the Mercedes-AMG GT is a sports car in its purist form, combining beauty and intelligence. He also described the AMG GT as a contemporary sports car embodying the spirit of the carmaker’s glorious sports cars, with its looks defined by flowing lines, dynamic sculpted surfaces and spectacular proportions.

An embodiment of sensual purity -- of both sportiness and emotion – the new AMG GT features hallmark rear-wheel-drive proportions. Its V8 biturbo front mid-engine layout help ensure optimal weight distribution, serving as a foundation for magnificent driving dynamics.

To define its looks, the new AMG GT features a long bonnet with its prominent powerdomes and a setback greenhouse, as well as large wheels and a broad tail end where the large tailgate exposes a generous luggage room.

The new AMG GT looks like a sculpture drawn by its arched surfaces. Its stunning sensuous character is apparent when viewed from the side, providing a glimpse onto its dome-shaped roof line, frameless doors and a muscular element sculpted from the side wall. The lines and surfaces of the new AMG GT elegantly flow – with a tapered effect -- to its rear end. While the GT avoids lines in its shoulder region, a line is located below.

This line picks up in the rear bumper and stretches the body to make it seem lighter. The rear end is also marked by side air outlets, each featuring two fins. Interestingly, the new AMG GT has no visible aerials that could hamper its overall appearance.
