Mercedes AMG GT Edition 1 debuts

To mark the launch of the new Mercedes AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in September 2018, Mercedes-AMG will be offering an Edition 1 model for a limited period of 12 months.

By emphasizing the sporty aspects of the exterior and reinforcing the high-quality finish of the interior, this model offers even more exclusivity and distinctive appeal. The AMG Aerodynamics Package and the foil applications underline the affinity between this latest member of the AMG GT family and the world of motorsport. In conjunction with the 21-inch AMG cross-spoke forged wheels, the paintwork in designo graphite grey magno, diamond white bright or graphite grey metallic immediately draws the eye.

 

 

 

 

 

The interior is made even more exclusive by AMG Performance seats in Exclusive nappa leather in magma grey/ black with yellow contrasting topstitching, while the AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfibre with yellow contrasting topstitching and the AMG matt carbon-fibre trim add further highlights. The limited-edition model is available as the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ Edition 1, featuring the 470 kW (639 hp) top-of-the-range V8 engine.

The Aerodynamics Package for the Edition 1 encompasses such features as a larger front splitter and integrated flics in the front apron, an enhanced demand-optimized diffuser and a fixed rear spoiler, the blade of which can be mechanically adjusted. The driver is thus able to adjust the balance of lift and the driving characteristics to suit individual preference or the specific circumstances. The perfectly coordinated interaction between the various elements serves to optimize aerodynamic efficiency.

Compared with the standard vehicle with its adjustable spoiler extended to the maximum, at 300 km/h an additional 30 kilograms of aerodynamic downforce press the rear axle down onto the road. The larger front splitter also reinforces the effect of the Airpanel active air management system: if the adjustable louvres are closed, the lift at the front axle is further reduced.
