Mercedes-AMG GT Concept Driving Performance of the future

Muscular proportions, large volume and clear surface designs - the design of the new Mercedes-AMG GT Concept connects the philosophy of Sensual Purity with performance characteristic of AMG.

A deeply drawn bonnet, a powerfully raked windscreen, and - of course - the Panamericana grille - the AMG GT Concept is recognisable at first glance as a genuine AMG GT. The exterior design stands out with extremely muscular proportions, a large volume plus sensuous and simultaneously reduced surface styling. The concept car represents the design philosophy of Sensual Purity and lends it the added performance characteristic of AMG.

The GT Concept embodies the most extreme expression of our design idiom and underlines anew the autonomous profile of AMG as a performance brand. Through perfect proportions it creates a puristic design with the emphasis on its surfaces, featuring sensuous shapes and is hot and cool at the same time.

Powerful front

Anyone observing the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept might notice one detail first: the striking Panamericana grille. With its vertical ribs painted red on the sides, the new configuration of the extremely slim main headlamps and the side air gills dominate the vehicle's front design. The bonnet reaching right to the wheel arches underscores the decidedly sports car genes together with the two powerdomes.

Muscular body

The crouched, dynamic greenhouse with its steeply sloping roof line and the slim layout of the frameless side windows emphasise the dynamic forwards thrust of the AMG GT Concept when seen from the side. The tapered side drop and the broad rear shoulder in the area of the flared wheel arches reinforce the muscular expression. The function of the exterior mirrors on the study is taken care of by aerodynamically favourable miniature cameras, known as mirror cams. The roof, the A wing of the front spoilers, the rear diffuser and the side sill panels in high-quality yet light carbon fibre make the connection with motorsport. The very expressively styled wheels in a fine-spoke design allow a good view of the AMG ceramic high-performance compound brake. The brake callipers are painted in a bronze colour and bear the "AMG Carbon Ceramic" lettering.

Elegant rear

The width-biased rear assembly also cites the unmistakeable AMG GT look with the extremely slim horizontal tail lamps and the shape of the tailgate. Further design elements at the tail end are the wide carbon-fibre diffuser curved downwards at the sides and the centrally arranged tailpipe trim reminiscent of the Mercedes-AMG GT R.

Fascination and function

The Mercedes-AMG principle that fascination is always linked with function also applies to the study. An example are the new front and rear lights - typical AMG GT design characteristics further developed. They use the "nano active fibre technology". Mercedes-AMG is presenting future-oriented daytime running lamps for the first time. This is produced by a special bright light system in a freely styled light cord. The three-dimensional illumination effect lends the AMG GT Concept an autonomous light signature. Another detail of the high-tech lights is the redeveloped serial turn signal pulse ("flashing light indicator") which and impresses with its extremely rapid sequence. Two tubular rod lights illuminate the road surface directly in front of the car and constitute the driving light together with the large LED main headlamp and its lens system. A golden sail-shaped badge supplements the individual impression, and a red AMG logo denotes attention to detail. Overall the front headlamp is a three-dimensional multilayered high-tech component which underscores the technical standards of the performance study with features in gunmetal grey and brushed aluminium.

The tail light also has the new light technology, which is located beneath the three-dimensional lens of the rear lamps. A ribbed cooling module is integrated into the lens to guide the waste heat to the exterior.
