Mercedes-AMG GT-S - High Speed on Racetrack (Good Exhaust Sound)

By YouCar

2015 Mercedes-AMG GT-S Edition 1 The GT is the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG. Its front mid-engine concept with transaxle and the intelligent aluminium lightweight construction form the basis for a highly dynamic driving experience. Its likewise newly developed AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine underscores the hallmark AMG driving performance. The first sports car engine with internally mounted turbochargers ('hot inside V') and dry sump lubrication is configured in two output ratings: as a GT with 340 kW (462 hp) and as a GT S with 375 kW (510 hp). The new GT combines driving dynamics and first-class racetrack performance with superb everyday practicality, and efficiency that sets new standards in the segment. Top figures such as 3.8 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and a top speed of 310 km/h, combined with the outstanding driving dynamics will undoubtedly translate into extremely fast laps on the racetrack. The "Edition 1" is a particularly sporty Mercedes-AMG GT S: the extraordinary composition of the sporty exterior and interior details create a head-turning spectacle. - Aerodynamic package in black (larger front splitter with smooth transition to the flics on the side air intakes of the front apron, wheel arch flics at the front, dynamic black trim on the side sill panels, fixed rear aerofoil) - Carbon-fibre roof - Exterior Night package (diamond grille in black with louvre in high-gloss black, fins in the front wings in high-gloss black, exterior mirror housings in high-gloss black, trim strip in the diffuser insert in high-gloss black, triangular side windows and rear window in heat-insulating tinted glass (country-specific), black tailpipes) - 10-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in black with a high-sheen finish, tyres in size 265/35 R 19 on 9  x 19 (front) and 295/30 R 20 on 11 x 20 (rear) The pure racetrack feel also dominates the interior: - Black nappa leather interior with red contrasting topstitching - Performance seats with integral belt guide in black nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre with red contrasting topstitching - Interior Black Diamond package - Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfibre with flattened lower section, 12-o'clock marking, red contrasting topstitching, steering wheel bezel in silver chrome with "Edition 1" lettering and silver-coloured aluminium shift paddles Prices for Germany including 19% VAT: Mercedes-AMG GT: €115,430 Mercedes-AMG GT S: €134,351 Mercedes-AMG GT S "Edition 1": €148,512 ► If you love cars, you should subscribe now to YouCar's channel: Go ahead, it's free!
