Mercedes-Benz has always acquired a smart trick which has indeed worked out for them. However minor the changes are, they have given a new name to the updated model. That might not only increase the lineup but also help their audience select their preference with a specific model name. So, two years after the spectacular GT coupe rolled out in the market, the Dalmier group announced that they will be coming up with a high-end drop top derivative, the 2017 Mercedes AMG GT.
While the last year’s version was simply dubbed as the GT S, this new model has been given the name simply GT. Ask any guy from the Mercedes-Benz service Greensboro, and you would hear the same suggestion from all- if you’re looking for a new car at all that has got a 3 pointed star on the hood, nothing can be cooler than the all new 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. Now, why would all of them repeat the same words? Is this what the brand markets as their catch line? Even if this justification is being taken to be true, how can you even ignore the sleek styling, amazing engine and the great performance that the model features? It is the perfect combination of all these factors that have actually made GT, the new flagship couple in the entire range of models that the brand comes up with.
While carrying out some of the research work, most of the Mercedes Benz service centers have identified one interesting fact about the AMG GT. They say that this new model actually picked up its specifications right where the SLS AMG left off. However, there are two distinct changes that cannot be ignored under any circumstances. Firstly, the unique gull wing doors that the SLS had are completely gone and replaced with the traditional doors that Mercedes-Benz has always had. And secondly, the entire price tag is completely different. In fact, the GT has completely missed the convertible variant that SLS provided; however, the brand confirms it to be out in 2018 soon.
Performance has always been great for Mercedes-Benz and it needs no special mention. The standard turbocharged 4-liter V8 engine underneath the hood makes bigger power and it has never felt uncomfortable to offer 456 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. If that’s the performance of the base level, the top end GT gives 502 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.
Are these figures surprising you? Never mind, just check out the brand you’re reading of, and all confusions will be gone in a minute.
