The GT lineup from Mercedes-AMG is doing just fine on the market, the carmaker now getting ready to release a GT Roadster version that would replace the bigger and the more expensive SLS AMG roadster.
The carmaker is also busy launching the entry-level AMG GT in the United States, the version coming available from $110,220. Even if the price and the features are not as “grandiose” as the high-end GT S, it still makes it appealing to the average US Merc lover.
In terms of performance, the Mercedes-AMG GT comes fully packed with the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine, with a standard 456 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, and is hooked in the US with a seven-speed AMG SpeedShift dual-clutch transmission. This would be enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds, at a topping of 3.9 seconds.
As aforementioned, the AMG GT is not tweaked with extra goodies which will bring it closer to the GT S, but does impress with standard features such as MB-Tex/Dinamica upholstery, rearview camera, power front seats, keyless start button and a plethora of safety features.
In case you want additional goodies, than you can opt for the AMG Night Package, as well as AMG Dynamic Plus Package, which for extra cash add up panorama sunroof, carbon ceramic brakes as well as the Burmester audio system.
