The Mercedes-Benz AMG line has roots that go all the way back to 1988. Over the last two and a half decades, this line has been defined by aggressive designs featuring carbon fiber, excellent handling & stability, and the highest levels of performance on the market. Because this line has remained so popular, Mercedes-Benz has continued to lead the field with its innovations.

The latest addition to this iconic line of high-powered vehicles is the 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. This vehicle is an especially exciting milestone for Mercedes-Benz. As the vehicle’s official press release explains, “with the new Mercedes-AMG GT, the Mercedes-AMG sports car brand is moving into a new sports car segment.”

Overview of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

This vehicle combines an incredible design with performance that will take your breath away. As its growl makes clear, this is a vehicle that was born on the racetrack. Thanks to its low body weight and extremely fast power transfers, the GT’s cornering performance is downright incredible.

As you’ll see if you check out this car in person at Mercedes-Benz of Tucson in the not too distant future, the vehicle features an interior that was inspired by aviation design. The dashboard exudes power with a look that’s reminiscent of a wing and features four central vents plus the ideal center console.

2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Highlights You Don’t Want to Miss

The new AMG GT has a V8 biturbo engine. Not only is it a 4.0-liter engine, but it’s actually handbuilt. One of the GT’s many accomplishments is it’s the first sports car to feature an engine with dry sump lubrication and turbos inside the V of the engine.

Topping out at a breathtaking 193 miles per hour, the preliminary time for the 2016 AMG GT to go from zero to sixty is just 3.7 seconds. Both the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and dynamic exhaust system are electronically controlled. This provides a limited slip differential for the transmission and a variable vane for the exhaust.

Thanks to the AMG Dynamic Select feature, not only is the suspension dynamic, but it’s possible for multiple drivers to choose different steering and suspension modes. Some of the interior’s luxurious highlights include a performance steering wheel with shift paddles and the highest quality Nappa leather throughout the interior.

While driving this car is an absolute thrill, it’s also incredibly safe thanks to features like adaptive braking technology and PARKTRONIC. Drivers can also opt for blind spot and lane keeping assist. Drivers will be able to make the AMG truly their own thanks to a variety of trim options that include matte silver fiberglass and silver chrome.

If you can’t wait to see what this car looks and sounds like when it’s right in front of you, mark your calendar now for when it hits the market in Spring 2015!
