Mercedes Debuts AMG GT 4-Door Coupe Edition 1

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is already one of the best-looking four-doors around. But to celebrate its launch, Mercedes will offer an Edition 1 model with extra cosmetic upgrades inside and out.

The model features a gray paint job with sport stripes on the hood, across the doors, and on the roof and decklid. It also receives 21-inch AMG wheels painted in matte black. An AMG Aerodynamics package tacks on a larger front splitter and extra aero bits in the front bumper, a special diffuser, and fixed rear spoiler with mechanically adjustable angle.

Inside, you'll find Nappa leather upholstery with yellow contrast stitching and yellow seat belts. Also look for carbon fiber trim, performance seats with a memory function, illuminated door sill panels, special AMG #63 cabin fragrance, and edition-specific floor mats. On the AMG performance steering wheel, there is a unique yellow marking and Edition badging.

All Edition 1 models will come with the engine available on the top AMG GT 4-Door coupe GT 63 S. This unit is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that produces 630 hp, allowing it to hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, according to Mercedes. Top speed should reach 195 mph.

The AMG GT 4-Door arrives in early 2019 here in the U.S. The first models to go on sale are the GT 63 and 63S, while buyers going for the less powerful GT 53 will have to wait until the middle of 2019. Prices have not yet been announced. The Edition 1 will make its premiere in the sheetmetal during the ADAC Zurich 24-hour Race at the N rburgring this weekend.

There isn't any word on price, but it's probably safe to assume commissioning a one-off Ferrari is expensive. Very expensive.
