Get a great look at the Mercedes-AMG GT S in this 360° video. 

It has everything you would expect from an authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car – from the characteristic styling, thoroughbred motorsport technology to the optimum weight distribution. The drive system tailored consistently to driving dynamics perfectly complements this set-up. The new models are identifiable by the distinctive AMG Panamericana grille, which is now shared by all AMG GT models. Underlining the motor sport heritage, the grille features 15 chrome-plated, vertical bars which echo the look of the latest Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Four-door sports car from Affalterbach.

The four-door sports car from Affalterbach will seamlessly continue the success story of the AMG GT. The dynamic fastback will also be highly suitable for everyday use thanks to the large tailgate and the variable interior and luggage compartment. The new coupé thus blends the high functionality of the performance cars with the sportiness of the AMG GT sports cars. The show car gives a sneak preview of the exterior design of the coming series production model.

Muscular proportions.

The exterior design stands out with extremely muscular proportions, a large volume plus sensuous and simultaneously reduced surface styling. The concept car represents the design philosophy of Sensual Purity and lends it the added performance characteristic of AMG.

“The GT Concept embodies the most extreme expression of our design idiom and underlines anew the autonomous profile of AMG as a performance brand,” said Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG. “Through perfect proportions it creates a puristic design with the emphasis on its surfaces, featuring sensuous shapes and is hot and cool at the same time.”

AMG GT characteristics.

The Panamericana grille with vertical ribs painted red on the sides, the new configuration of the extremely slim main headlamps and the side air gills with their dominant design in the front apron are hallmark AMG GT design characteristics which have been advanced to a new level here and express pure power. The bonnet reaching right to the wheel arches underscores the definitive sports car genes together with the two powerdomes. This is also expressed in the extravagant paintwork in the colour shade hot red with a finish that shimmers in the light like liquid metal thanks to a special formulation.

Hallmark AMG GT look.

The width-biased rear assembly also cites the unmistakeable AMG GT look with the extremely slim horizontal tail lamps and the shape of the tailgate. The tail light also has the new light technology, which is located beneath the three-dimensional lens of the rear lamps. A ribbed cooling module is integrated into the lens to guide the waste heat to the exterior.

Further design elements at the tail end are the wide carbon-fibre diffuser curved downwards at the sides and the centrally arranged tailpipe trim reminiscent of the Mercedes-AMG GT R.

Mirror Cams.

The function of the exterior mirrors on the study is taken care of by aerodynamically favourable miniature cameras, known as mirror cams. The “EQ Power+” identifier on the mirror cam indicates the increased performance that can be expected from hybridisation at AMG. The very expressively styled wheels in a fine-spoke design allow a good view of the AMG ceramic high-performance compound brake. The brake callipers are painted in a bronze colour and bear the “AMG Carbon Ceramic” lettering.

“Nano active fibre technology”.

With the “nano active fibre technology” Mercedes-AMG is presenting future-oriented daytime running lamps for the first time. This is produced by a special bright light system in a freely styled light cord. The three-dimensional illumination effect lends the AMG GT Concept an autonomous light signature, which is flanked by numerous further measures in the high-tech headlamp. The turn signal light function is integrated at the top edge. The serial turn signal pulse (“flashing light indicator”) has again been enhanced and impresses with its extremely rapid sequence.

Mercedes-AMG GT Concept – Driving Performance of the future.

As part of its 50th anniversary Mercedes-AMG is this year celebrating not only the successful past and present; above all it is looking forward. With the show car Mercedes-AMG GT Concept the sports car and performance brand is giving an indication of the alternative drive configurations AMG is designing. Over and above this the four-door coupé heralds the further extension of the AMG GT family. The third model series after the SLS AMG and AMG GT is now being completely autonomously developed at the company’s headquarters in Affalterbach. The designation and fundamental design elements on the front and tail end denote the family affiliation to the AMG GT. The “EQ Power+” identifier on the mirror cam indicates the increased performance that can be expected from hybridisation at AMG.

Weight is a crucial factor in the performance of a sports car. For the Mercedes-AMG GT-R, the engineers have opted for an especially intelligent material mix.

Mercedes-AMG GT R wins Innovation Award.

Intelligent material mix is the key to lightweight design.
Fuel consumption combined: 11.4 l/100 km; combined CO₂ emissions: 259 g/km.*

Aluminium, magnesium and carbon fibre.

Unveiled in Brooklands on 24 June, the AMG GT R, the new spearhead of the Affalterbach-based sports car and performance brand Mercedes-AMG, employs an especially smart material mix. While the chassis and body are made from a variety of aluminium alloys, the boot lid is of steel and the front deck of magnesium.

The weight is optimised by numerous elements such as the active aerodynamic profile on the underbody of high-grade carbon fibre.

Combination of high-tech materials.

The high flexural strength and torsional stiffness of the entire structure allows the transmission of extreme longitudinal and transverse forces from powertrain and chassis. This reduces undesired elasticities; the vehicle responds precisely and directly. In recognition of this intelligent combination of high-tech materials, the AMG GT R has now won the Innovation Award at EXPERIENCE COMPOSITES 2016, a new trade fair for fibre composite materials, lightweight design and carbon fibre.

Weighing just 13.9 kilograms, the carbon-fibre torque tube is 40 percent lighter than the already weight-optimised aluminium component in the AMG GT. In addition, a new carbon-fibre tunnel cross replaces three other aluminium components in the GT. This newly designed lightweight structural element has enabled the experts at AMG not only to reduce the weight, but also to significantly increase the torsional stiffness by 7.5 percent.

Innovation Award.

Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “We have systematically geared the entire structure of the new AMG GT R to performance using our expertise in composite materials.” Especially the use of carbon fibre, a light yet very strong material from the field of motorsport, helps to achieve the challenging goals. Carbon fibre is used as a material for such components as the front wings, the roof and the propeller shaft tube for an exceptionally torsionally stiff connection between engine and transmission.

Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, is delighted with the award.

Deformable composite material.

The lightweight design experts at AMG also opted for an intelligent use of materials for the so-called wheel catch struts, which are made of a composite material. In an accident, these components comply with the intended crash kinematics by guiding the front wheels onto the side members, where they are blocked. The composite struts are around 50 percent lighter than similar steel components, but, unlike carbon fibre, they are deformable.
