Expected to arrive in the spring of 2015, the 2016 AMG® GT in Merriam KS is one of the most hotly anticipated new cars from the performance sector of Mercedes-Benz in the company’s history. The first-ever AMG® GT exudes performance, through and through, with a new handcrafted AMG® engine roaring under the hood and a lightweight build that ensures unparalleled precision and speed, the 2016 AMG® GT in Merriam KS will set the bar for its performance coupe competition.
The AMG® GT S trim zipped from 0-60 mph in just 3.7-seconds in preliminary testing and has a top speed of 193 mph. And while the the excellence of the AMG® GT is centered on its performance, its interior is unmistakably Mercedes-Benz, with amenities, conveniences and comfort that rival a luxury sedan.
Both the 2015 AMG® GT and AMG® GT S house a handcrafted, newly engineered 4.0-liter Biturbo engine with dry-sump lubrication (M178). The base AMG® GT generates 456 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 443 pound-feet of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm. The GT S will sport the same Biturbo engine, however, it will output 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.
But pure power and speed only tell half the story of the 2016 AMG® GT in Merriam, KS. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, an AMG® suspension, driver-selectable steering and suspension modes, and an ideal 47 to 53 percent weight distribution between the front and rear axle all contribute to the AMG® GT’s unparalleled performance.
While everything under the hood works in perfect harmony to deliver raw speed, power, and performance, the interior of the 2016 AMG® GT is absolutely pristine. The aviation-inspired theme, which is a staple of AMG® sports cars, is redesigned to focus on the long, sloping dashboard. The low seating, concave doors, spotlight vents and overall layout of the interior provides an experience reminiscent of the cockpit of a jet.
The centrally positioned free-standing display is strategically placed to minimize distractions behind the wheel providing the cutting-edge feel you expect from sports car. With the highest quality materials throughout the cabin and abundant technology, the 2016 AMG® GT in Merriam KS is the truest definition of a modern performance coupe.
