Weststar Reveals New Mercedes-Benz AMG GT
This is good news for sports car lovers in Nigeria. Mercedes-Benz has finally added its award winning sports car, the Mercedes-Benz, AMG, GT to its line up in Nigeria. According to Weststar, Mercedes-Benz representative in Nigeria, after many years of development, the wait is finally over. The AMG GT carries the Mercedes-Benz racing car heritage and conveys the essences of the performance brand AMG. The car is a product of supreme craftsmanship and engineering, in which this unique sports car embodies the passion for outstanding performance and dynamism in its purest form.
The creative interaction of diverse design elements lends the coupé a superior, self-confident front: the three-dimensional diamond radiator grille, with central Mercedes star, a broad louvre and lettering, stands in the centre of the front end. LED High Performance headlamps with stylish“eyebrows” as daytime running lamps, side lights and indicators, as well as three separate high-beam reflectors, lend the GT its characteristic look.
The A-wing with front splitter in the lower third of the front apron, a characteristic feature of AMG vehicles, makes the sports car appear low-slung and wide. ‘Coke bottle’ shape is one of many words that have been used to describe the innovative design of the AMG GT; all modern Mercedes feature the ‘Coke bottle’ theme, the GT being the most extreme example.
The long bonnet with its pronounced powerdomes, the greenhouse which has been moved far back, the large wheels and broad tail end add to the vehicles distinctive look.
In addition, the interior design also embodies maximum emotion and sensual purity. The model features radically low, sporty proportions, which creates a unique sense of spaciousness. Anyone opening the door of the AMG-GT will discover an exciting interplay between the deep, sloping dashboard and a dominant, arched high centre console; a design which evokes emotions and impresses with its perfection, which was achieved by the brand using the finest materials and workmanship.
The vehicle is everything you would expect from an authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car. From the characteristic styling and the motorsport technology to the optimum weight distribution. The drive system tailored to consistently delivering driving dynamics perfectly complements this set-up. The model also offers the perfect design and engineering combination to produce an amazing performance on the road as it uses technological DNA of the Mercedes-SLS AMG- one of the most successful cars in recent years.
The Mercedes-AMG GT embraces the ‘one man, one engine’ philosophy; this philosophy has guided AMG’s approach to manufacturing and is the reason why every AMG engine is hand built from start to finish by one of the AMG master engine builders. The newly developed AMG 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine was developed specifically for the Mercedes GT model and seals the AMG driving experience.
