The new affordable supercar of Mercedes was officially presented. AMG GT continues what started with the top model of the Germans SLS AMG, but in a more accessible form for its customers. Mercedes AMG GT goes on the road with a 4-liter V8 engine with two turbochargers and power of 462 hp and 600 Nm.

Power is transmitted to the rear tires from a 7-speed automatic transmission with two clutches.

The standard discipline from standstill to 100 km / h is covered for four seconds, after which the acceleration continues to 304 km / h when the electronic speed limit is activated. Mercedes also introduced a stronger AMG GT S version. It is powered by the same 4-liter V8 engine with two turbochargers, but its power has been increased to 510 hp and 650 Nm of torque. Thanks to most of its power, the Mercedes AMG GT S catapults to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds.

The weight of the Mercedes AMG GT is 1540 kg, for which a lot of aluminum is used in the chassis and magnesium in the suspension. AMG GT relies on transmitting its power to the asphalt using a differential with mechanical locking, and the S-version with electronic locking. The suspension has electronically controlled shock absorbers with three levels of adjustment - Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
