The seamless power and natural balance of an inline-6 return with another Mercedes-AMG tradition: a technological leap forward. The lightweight, fully beltless engine is also electrified: An Integrated Starter-Generator can supply up to 21 hp, allow fuel-free coasting, and recapture energy during deceleration. With a twin-scroll turbo and electric auxiliary compressor, the gas engine outputs 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque on its own, for quick, efficient response.
Electrifying the inline-6 gasoline engine is an innovative Integrated Starter-Generator. It teams with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery and power supply for formerly belt-driven components like the water pump and air-conditioning compressor. These advancements help reduce weight and enhance underhood packaging. In addition to boosting power and torque for immediate response, EQ Boost delivers this performance in a more fuel-efficient, lower-emission manner.
The cylinder walls of the diecast aluminum block are created in an AMG-patented process that benefits performance, efficiency and durability. NANOSLIDE® technology uses a twin-wire arc spray to coat the bores with an ultra hard layer that's honed to an ultralow-friction, mirror-like finish. Without the added weight of cylinder liners, the bores and lightweight forged pistons are matched with even greater dimensional precision, for more immediate and consistent power over a longer service life.
Using principles proven in racing, the braking components are engineered for enduring stopping power in high-performance driving. All four wheels feature 14.2-inch perforated and ventilated discs. The front discs are grasped by powerful 6-piston fixed calipers finished with grey paint and white AMG logos.
Two additional internal flaps near the tailpipes let the driver escalate its sound at the push of a button, either directly or via the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. The system's free-flow design delivers an audible celebration of power with every upshift, downshift and rev. Computer-control of the flaps base their operation on engine speed and load, to assure full power delivery regardless of the system's sound output.
A specially engineered version of 4MATIC® can instantly vary the front-to-rear torque distribution in precise response to driving conditions and driver inputs. It can even send up to 100% to the rear wheels. An electromechanical coupling between the front and rear axles is controlled based on an elaborate matrix of driving mode, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, and available grip to optimize handling and acceleration right up to the physical limits, on virtually any road or track surface.
Bold and muscular yet flowing, AMG lower bodywork enhances both aesthetics and aerodynamics. The deep front apron features a color-keyed splitter, plus large air intakes with a single horizontal strake in each outer air intake. Flared side sills bridge the wheel arches and visually hug the road, while the rear valance outlines the four round tailpipes and black central diffuser insert.
An electronically controlled spoiler deploys in five stages of angle and height based on speed and driving mode selection. From 0 to 50 mph, it lies flush for a clean appearance and protection while parked. From 50 to 87 mph, it rises 2.5 inches to optimize drag and efficiency. Above 87 mph, it reaches 5.1 inches to optimize air resistance and stability at speed. Additional settings, lower or higher, are engaged at certain speeds in Sport+ mode or when highly dynamic driving is detected.
Aerodynamically enhanced 19-inch AMG alloy wheels feature a machine-polished silver finish and 10 ultra thin spokes. High-performance tires are staggered in width (255/45R19 front and 285/40R19 rear) for greater acceleration grip without sacrificing crisp steering feedback.
The standard rear cabin features a pair of seats that are individually contoured for two, divided by a console area with open storage. Fixed seatbacks feature integrated head restraints and carbon fiber structures. A pair of climate control vents at the rear of console echo the turbine-style design of the front cabin's dash vents.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin.
Mercedes me helps you keep your car at its peak with a suite of services at no additional charge. You can schedule dealer service from the smartphone app, get an estimate, and add the appointment to your calendar. Your car can reach out to your dealer with diagnostic information. And the expert help of Mercedes-Benz Roadside Assistance is just a button's push away.
Directly inspired by racing, the deeply contoured AMG Performance seats feature integrated head restraints and AMG badges. In addition to the customary power adjustments, the substantial side bolsters in the cushion and backrest are also power-adjustable for optimal lateral support.
One of the most respected makers of handcrafted high-end home audio, Germany's Burmester® has developed a surround-sound system that's specifically tailored to the AMG GT 4-door Coupe. With 14 high-quality speakers and a 640-watt, 10-channel digital amplifier, the system fills the cabin with pure surround sound while seamlessly compensating for ambient noise. Exquisitely detailed aluminum speaker grilles are as rewarding to the eyes as the system's output is to the most discerning ears.
Innovative Touch Controls elevate the multifunction steering wheel to an unparalleled level of user-friendliness. In addition to fingertip buttons for features like audio, Bluetooth® and cruise control, smartphone-like pads offer direct control of nearly every cockpit feature. Swiping through menus is easy: Your left thumb operates the menu screen in the gauge cluster, and your right thumb controls the large central COMAND® display, without taking your hands from the wheel's Nappa leather rim.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
At most driving speeds, radar technology helps sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. An icon illuminates in the appropriate side mirror to alert the driver of a detected vehicle. The system also gives an audible warning if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera displays a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
