Four years after its debut, the Mercedes-AMG GT line-up has received some updates, both in terms of design and technology. In the automotive world, it is termed as “facelift”.
Speaking of which, the update now matches the GT 4-door coupe, especially when you look at the new LED headlamps. There isn’t much to talk about the side profile and at the rear, there is a new diffuser with twin tailpipe setup on either side. However, on the GT R, you won’t find any difference on the rear.
Buyers of GT and GT S can opt for a new y-spoke light alloy wheels in soft black with a finely polished surface. Another new option for the GT, GT S and GT C is 10-double-spoke forged wheels in titanium grey with finely polished surfaces or in soft black with finely polished rim flange.
Mercedes-AMG GT R interiors with AMG Night Package
The interiors borrow heavily from the GT 4-door coupe. A 10.25-inch multimedia display and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster comes as standard. The instrument cluster has a new design with the three AMG-specific display styles “Classic”, “Sporty” or “ Supersport”. In the “Supersport” mode, there is an extensive additional information specific to AMG, such as a prompt to shift up in manual transmission mode.
Also notice the new flat-bottom steering wheel with touch control buttons. Options list includes parking package which comes with reverse and front camera.
The AMG Dynamic Select which has “Slippery”, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport Plus”, “Race” and “Individual” drive modes, now also comes with AMG Dynamics. This expands the functionalities of ESP. There are further modes named “Basic”, “Advanced”, “Pro” and “Master”.
The “Pro” mode is linked to Sport+ mode, and is mainly intended for taking corners with more precision. The “Master” (only in GT C, GT S and GT R) is connected to the Race mode and according to Mercedes, offers an extremely neutral vehicle balance, low steer angle requirement and more agile steering.
