Article by Christian A., on November 26, 2016

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the pricing for its Mercedes-AMG GT starting with the Coupe at £98,195 and the Mercedes-AMG GT R Coupe at £143,245. In the middle is the Roadster priced at £110,145, followed by the S Coupe at £111,495, and the C Roadster with £139,445.

The roofs on the Roadster and the C Roadster can come in a three-layer fabric with the choice to have it in dark red, beige, or black. This particular detail is available at no additional cost to the customer. What is exciting about this roof is that it can be closed or opened within 11 seconds. This operation is even possible despite the vehicle running at a maximum of 31 mph.

While the entire GT range is fitted with the biturbo 4.0-liter engine, the one in the Roadster variant offers an output of 476 hp, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds. Meanwhile the C Roadster delivers an output of 557 hp; hence, it can go from 0 to 62 mph in merely 3.7 seconds.

Even with all the power, fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions are excellent with the Roadster having combined cycle of 30.1 mpg and emissions of 219 g/km with the C Roadster showing 24.8 mpg and emissions at 259 g/km. Mercedes-Benz is offering a Premium equipment line for the Roadster at £4,195, though this is fitted as standard on the C Roadster.

At the top is the R Coupe whose powertrain delivers an output of 585 hp with peak torque of 700 Nm. This enables it to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds with fuel efficiency at 24.8 mpg and CO2 emissions of 259 g/km. Standard features for this version include the roof in carbon fiber with the Panamericana grille and the R body style. Brake calipers are in yellow and on the back is the performance exhaust system.

The body is fitted with the alloy 19-inch wheels on the front and 20-inch version on the back with both having sport tires. Features fitted on the interior include the performance steering wheel that comes in black Dinamica micro-fiber and the sports bucket seats. Included as well is the Interior Night package which has the doors sills in black as well as the inserts that are under the head restraints and the gear shift panels in the steering wheel.

Despite being on the top range of the GT, the brand is still offering for the GT R a Premium package priced at £4,195 which adds in the heated seats. There is also the Track package costing £1,685, which puts in not only 4-point seat belt harnesses but also a roll cage and fire extinguisher. Brakes in carbon ceramic can be added but will cost an extra £5,995.

There are other packages made available. To know more about the full details and the specification plus price, just go to www.Mercedes-Benz.co.uk.
