With 720 hp, the handcrafted biturbo engine is the most powerful V8 AMG has ever unleashed on the street. A "flat-plane" crankshaft, 24.6 psi of max boost, and dry-sump lubrication team up to reach 60 in 3.1 seconds, 120 in under 9 seconds, and a top speed of 202 mph.
Integrated within the rear-mounted transaxle for ideal weight distribution, the dual-clutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT 7-speed is adapted to the engine's high torque. Shift points and response time, Race Start revs, and cooling are further intensified for track performance.
The driveshaft that carries the engine's thrust to the rear transaxle, as well as the rigid "torque tube" that carries it, are both crafted from carbon fiber. At just 30.6 lbs, the tube shaves 40 percent off the weight of the already light aluminum component in the GT model.
Camber at the front and rear axles is manually adjustable, so you can alter the settings for the track, at the track, and reset them for the drive home. The carbon fiber front sway bar offers 3-stage adjustment. A carbon fiber sheer panel stiffens the rear-end structure.
You can adjust the front splitter to track and street positions. The rear wing's twin carbon fiber blades are also adjustable, plus an upper-blade flap can be electrically tilted by up to 20 degrees. The underbody is near-fully paneled to help draw air and heat out the back.
Weight is reduced where it helps create the most benefit. The carbon fiber double-domed roof and rear hatch, and lightweight front and rear glass, help lower the center of gravity. A network of reinforcements and a coiled transmission mount, all carbon fiber, add rigidity.
Staggered in width and diameter, the 10x19-inch front/12x20-inch rear AMG® forged 10-spoke wheels help extract braking heat. They wear a Black Series color scheme and bespoke Michelin® Pilot Sport Cup tires. Magmabeam Orange paintwork is an exclusive, dramatic option.
Along with Black Exclusive Nappa leather, DINAMICA microsuede is impeccably tailored to the seats, dash, console, doors and AMG Performance steering wheel. Matte carbon fiber and gloss black accents can be contrasted with silver or bespoke orange stitching and seat stripes.
High-resolution, reconfigurable digital displays and ergonomic controls anchor the stylishly functional cockpit. Bespoke materials, from the dash to the AMG Performance seats, are geared toward precise control and enduring comfort even in the most spirited driving.
A touchpad central controller offers a variety of ways to access the numerous on-screen entertainment, navigation and convenience menus and features. Along with adjacent one-touch keys for major functions, the touchpad responds to a variety of finger motions, including swipe, pinch and even handwriting.
Apple CarPlay™ brings its own interface and apps to your Mercedes-Benz. Integrating with your car's in-dash color screen, central controller and steering-wheel controls, Apple CarPlay lets you enjoy a variety of apps via an interface that looks and works like your iPhone®. That's because it links your iPhone and Siri® to your car, so you can make calls, hear or dictate text messages, navigate to a destination, stream music, podcasts and audiobooks from a variety of sources, and more.
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.
A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE® can detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat, and close the windows and sunroof, all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraints in the moments before a collision. If no accident occurs, the seat-belt tensioners can reverse, and you can simply readjust your seat, open the sunroof and continue on your way.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® can continuously monitor 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 the dashboard display.
During low-speed maneuvers, PARKTRONIC’s ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers can detect nearby objects within the system’s field of view. Audible signals and illuminated displays in the cabin can help you navigate tight spaces with confidence.
Shift into Reverse, and a wide-angle camera mounted near the rear license plate can display a live view of what's behind the vehicle on the central in-dash screen. A forward-facing camera can help you negotiate tight spaces ahead of the car.
