Mercedes-Benz AMG GT – first images and details released image

Mercedes-Benz has released the first official images and details with the AMG GT, the official rival of the Porsche 911.

The first official images and details with the Porsche 911 rival created by Mercedes-Benz, the AMG GT, have been released by the German based automaker. The sports car has attended a photo shoot in its poison green and black flame vinyl wrap on public roads. It has an attractive exterior design influenced by its larger brother, the SLS and, speaking of the SLS, we have to remind you that this has left the production line in order to be replaced by the AMG GT.

The interior design of the German sports car is coming with an interesting look which has been borrowed from the flagship S-Class. This has a tablet-style display, leather, a bank of air vents and some other tweaks which should make it more interesting than the 911. Under the hood it will come with a new twin-turbo V8 engine which will produce around 500 HP. The Stuttgart based company has kept details on it a secret for the moment but rumors were announcing three versions, including a top of the line AMG GT Black Series. Transmission options will include a 7-speed or a 9-speed. The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT will be officially introduced before the end of the year, probably during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, in October.
