Bulges on the hood give a subtle hint to the power underneath while two side air intakes give a historical nod to Mercedes sports car of yore.
Based on the aluminium chassis of the SLS, the continuous glassed-in cockpit on the AMG GT gives the interior a spaciousness and comfort usually reserved for larger sedans and, despite its size, lines running along the sides give it an agile and light look.
The AMG Drive Unit offers the driver control over both the ride and the sound of the car. Want to save gas and soften the ride? Hit the button labeled “C” for "controlled efficiency."
How about bringing the car to redline? That’s what "manual" is for, and, where you can control the seven-speed automatic transmission by using the paddles attached to the flat-bottomed steering wheel. There's also a "sport plus" and a new feature called “I” or individual that allows the driver to personalize the ride and gearing to their liking.
The AMG GT S will have additional features. Amongst visual clues including red highlights on the speedometer, an AMG Affalterbach Crest on the center armrest and a blacked out front splitter, the GT S will have a special race mode that allows for faster, more aggressive shift speeds and an electronically controlled, rear-axle locking differential which helps improve the car’s performance at the limit.
