Mercedes AMG GT Reveals its Wildly Refined Interior

Those of you still mourning the loss of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG may start the healing process now because here’s your peek at the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, the second sports car developed solely by the performance junkies at AMG. Previous rumors suggested the new car would be called the SLC, but the automaker went with AMG GT instead, making it a complete outsider in the automaker’s nomenclature system.

Mercedes has a habit of teasing a new car’s interior before anything else. It did so with the new S-Class and the C-Class, and it’s doing it again with the AMG GT, first revealing it to selected members of the press at an event in the Big Apple. The public will have to wait a bit longer for their turn because the car won’t be present at this week’s 2014 New York International Auto Show.

Powertrain details are still forthcoming, but apparently AMG is working hard to make sure the car sounds good – a close look at the center stack reveals a button marked with exhaust tips, which likely activates a performance exhaust system with butterfly flaps to amplify the AMG GT’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8.

Overall, the AMG GT looks to combine elements used in current Benz models. The row of four center air vents mimics the S63 AMG 4Matic coupe, while the updated COMAND infotainment control knob and pad is also found in the C-Class. Benz designers made use of the upper edge of the windshield frame for another row of buttons for the hazards, heated seats, and rear spoiler. Black and red leather cover almost everything in the cabin, including the dashboard and heavily-bolstered sport seats. The three-spoke steering wheel looks to be a huge improvement over the SLS, while carbon fiber trim pieces add a nice touch of sportiness.

Expected to be unveiled later this year, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is aimed squarely at the Porsche 911 and will likely spawn a number of variants including a convertible and track-focused Black Series model. Stay tuned for more details, possibly as soon as this week’s New York auto show.
