Even in the rarefied domain of exotic sports cars, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT stands out with its sleek lines, high-tech construction, outstanding performance and luxury appointments. A true driver's car, the AMG GT Coupe impresses with communicative steering and jaw-dropping acceleration, courtesy of its largely hand-built engine, while encasing two occupants in one of the most stylish interiors in its class.
For 2017, Mercedes has added a base AMG GT to the lineup, giving buyers the chance to gain entry into supercar territory at a lower price than the even more powerful AMG GT S. Other changes for this model year include new interior trim and an AMG Aerodynamics package, which adds front-end modifications and a fixed rear spoiler to give the GT an even more aggressive look and extra downforce at high speeds.
Larger drivers might find the AMG GT's cockpit a bit snug, but overall the cabin is a pleasant place to settle in for a memorable driving experience. Quality materials abound, the design is both elegant and functional. All the expected luxury items are there, including dual-zone climate control, a high-resolution display screen and a premium sound system. For those who demand more, there are plenty of packages and stand-alone options available for adding a personal touch.
Both the AMG GT and the GT S are powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that drives the rear wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. In the base model it produces 456 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, while the GT bumps output up to 503 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.
On the road, the AMG GT is capable of providing more than enough excitement for almost any driver and passenger. A sophisticated suspension, lightweight components and selectable performance modes (Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and an individually configurable mode) make for taut, well-controlled handling. And the turbo V8 delivers effortless acceleration: in Edmunds testing, a GT S model zipped from zero to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.
Fuel economy for both the Mercedes AMG GT and the GT S is EPA rated at 18 mpg combined (16 city/22 highway), respectable figures for their class.
The base AMG GT comes with enough standard equipment to satisfy most buyers, although a plethora of optional packages and accessories are available for those who want to add some custom touches. The GT S packs on the performance goodies, with features like adaptive suspension, larger wheels and tires and, of course, that extra 47 hp, as well as interior upgrades, such as leather seats and an Burmester sound system. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find just the right 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Coupe to meet your needs.
