At the heart and soul of every Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicle, is the Philosophy that they had hold true since the first AMG vehicle rolled out in 1967 – “One Man, One Engine”.
As part of the global initiative to showcase the new AMG vehicles, Mercedes- Benz unveiled the new Mercedes-AMG GT S and Mercedes-AMG C 63 S at the Grand Hyatt Singapore on 24 June 2015.
Mercedes-AMG GT S
The first Mercedes was a racing car and its most recent successor
carries this heritage forward: with the new Mercedes-AMG GT, the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG.
The AMG GT is also the first sports car engine with internally mounted turbochargers (“hot inside V”) and dry sump lubrication , combining driving dynamics and first-class racetrack performance with superb everyday practicality and efficiency that sets new standards in the segment.
The AMG GT S, with the combination of aluminium spaceframe, V8 biturbo engine with dry sump lubrication, seven-speed dual clutch transmission in transaxle configuration at the rear axle, locking differential, sports suspension with aluminium double- wishbone suspension and the low kerb weight of 1540 kilograms delivers racetrack performance in a two-seater configuration package.
Mercedes-AMG C 63 S
Authentic dynamism and sheer passion: The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 is systematically configured for performance. The 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers outstanding performance figures and an emotional engine sound: the new engine is closely related to the power unit that gives the Mercedes-AMG GT its breathtaking performance.
As a new and unique feature in this competitive segment, the C 63 S – like the Mercedes-AMG GT – is equipped with dynamic engine mounts. These resolve the conflicting aims of comfort and dynamic performance by reducing vibrations in the engine/transmission unit.
Both the new Mercedes-AMG GT S and Mercedes-AMG C 63 S demonstrate Mercedes-Benz’s continued commitment to deliver superior technology coupled with distinctive style, elevating the fascination of motorsport. Both cars deliver unmatched excellence and exceptional performance – staying true to the Mercedes-AMG brand
