As you may have seen everywhere on the interent recently, Mercedes has released the first official interior pictures of the upcoming GT AMG! This will be the second vehicle that AMG has created from scratch. It is not a replacement for the SLS, it is the next in the series! We have no information on pricing, official exterior shots, release date or availablilty. I would say your best bet is to put down a deposit with your local dealer ASAP and then wait for your amazing vehicle to arrive!
Press Release Highlights:
“The technological substance of the Mercedes-AMG GT underscores our high aspirations with regard to driving dynamics, agility and sportiness. Following the global success of the SLS AMG, the new GT is the second sports car developed fully independently by Mercedes-AMG. An initial exclusive look at the design of the interior shows what is in store for our customers: a GT sports car in its purest form.” -Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH
“The dashboard places an extreme emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing. This effect is supported by the four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at the left and right ends of the dashboard. The dominant centre console presents a correspondingly dynamic character: its shaping reminiscent of a NACA air intake and the employed materials suggest that it has been adopted directly from motor racing.”
So, this monster just arrived in the showroom. It was ordered for a customer and he will be here soon. In the mean time we took a million pictures!
So far, so good!
I have participated in the AMG Driving Academy here in the US and loved every second of it. I’ve even been recorded doing hot laps. The instructors for the Academy lead three cars with amateur drivers around a high speed circuit while looking in their rearview mirrors and coaching! They are just amazing! The video below really demonstrates how they can perform incredible feats of driving while narrating the experience.
This particular vehicle is sold but I wanted to share some pictures of what makes this such a special edition!
507 Edition Features:
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG will arrive later this year and Mercedes-Benz invited journalists for a test drive this week. Here’s the first impression.
“In many ways, the AMG is a more pleasant everyday driver than the CLA45 AMG. The GLA delivers the same rousing performance, but offers a more comfortable ride, better for daily commuting.”
“…the transverse four-cylinder is most impressive from 4,500 rpm and up, where its character hardens and delivers explosive qualities on a planted throttle. It also sounds fantastic: a raspy growl under load and the occasional exhaust crackle.”
“We tried it on some rocky terrain and it happily traverses trails and loose gravel roads without feeling overly fragile or vulnerable. Whether you like it for its looks or its capabilities, the GLA fitted with the off-road package is uniquely appealing.”
“It adds more cargo space, a higher seating position for better visibility and even some rough road ability if you need it. Not bad considering it has the same footprint, similar styling and should likely deliver equivalent mileage numbers.”
I got up ridiculously early this morning to attend a CLA45AMG training session with the service department. The technical acheivements of the CLA45 AMG are very impressive and it looks pretty sharp too!
The silver contrast “chin” on the car was a surprise! The one we sold recently was Iridium Silver so I didn’t notice! This would be black on a car with the Night Styling Package!
This is the worlds most powerful production 4-cylinder. 355 horses and it feels like a rocket!
Thanks to Mercedes-Benz Learning and Performance for keeping us up to date on all of the new and exciting vehicles that have been coming our way!
This Special Edition C63 AMG just arrived in our AMG Performance Showroom and it is a stunner! It is very obviously a different beast from the “standard” C63 AMG!
Look at those Hood Scoops!
Look at those wheels!
And that Stripe!
Not to mention the extra 55 horses they crammed into the engine!
And the killer exhaust!
Your really need to come try this car on…they are very exclusive and you may never see one in person again!
2014 C63 AMG Coupe Edition 507
From the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page (and everywhere else on the internet!): Presenting the all-new 2015 GLA45 AMG, the fourth high-performance SUV to arrive from our speed shop in Affalterbach. Under the hood is a handcrafted 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder putting down 355-hp and 332 lb-ft of torque through a high-performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. It’s an SUV that gets from 0-60 mph in a scant 4.8 seconds-and one that very few others should trifle with. On sale this fall.
