Gorden Wagener, Vice President for Design at Daimler AG, called the new Mercedes-AMG GT as a sports car in its purist form. Combining beauty and intelligence, the new AMG GT is a contemporary sports car that embodies the spirit of Mercedes’ glorious sports cars, as evident on its magnificent proportions, flowing lines and sculpted surfaces.
An epitome of sensual purity of sportiness and emotion, the new AMG GT two-seater is marked by signature rear-wheel-drive proportions. Its superb driving dynamics is thanks to its optimal weight distribution, as made possible by its V8 biturbo front mid-engine layout.
Its distinctive appearance is defined by its setback passenger compartment, long bonnet with pronounced powerdomes, large wheels as well as a broad tail end. It also features a large tailgate that reveals a practical cargo compartment.
The sensuous character of the new AMG GT is thanks to its positively arched surfaces. Its flanks are defined by its dome-shaped, arched roof line and its frameless doors as well as by a sculpted muscular element that creates a sense of dynamism, even the sports car is at a standstill.
The surfaces and lines of the flanks run into the rear end in a tapered manner, although the AMG GT intentionally eludes lines in its shoulder section. A line, however, is found below, picking up again in the rear bumper to stretch the body of the AMG GT. Just like Mercedes’ sports cars, the AMG GT comes with side air outlets with two fins each. Moreover, the new AM GT has no visible aerials that might compromise its overall looks.
