Mercedes AMG GTS is full of intent, even when stationary. The prominent wheel arches exude power. The pronounced waistline running along the entire side wall merges into muscular shoulders. Its supreme might is concentrated in the dynamic rear end, waiting to pounce.

Your direct connection to the road. Three pre-set and one individually adjustable transmission mode can be selected via the Mercedes-AMG DYNAMIC SELECT Controller. C, S, S+ and I* – each with its own character. The sportier the mode, the more agile the responsiveness, the shorter the shift times and the more dynamic the tuning. Exclusive to the Mercedes-AMG GT S: RACE transmission mode. High performance to racing standard.
Light. Compact. Powerful. The dry weight of the new AMG V8 engine stands at only 209 kg. The aluminium crankcase is sand-cast and produced in closed-deck design. This offers maximum strength combined with low weight. The two turbochargers are installed in the so-called “hot inside V”. This enables an even more compact design, an optimised airflow and perfect inflow conditions for the turbochargers. The overall result is optimum engine response and improved emissions. To ensure the highest possible thermal diffusivity and conductivity, the cylinder head alloy incorporates zircon. And for maximum durability and friction-optimised running, the cylinder walls are lined with the NANOSLIDE® technology developed by Daimler.
Primed for performance
A sports car’s excellent performance is based on optimum distribution of its weight. The aim is to attain the lowest possible centre of gravity. This is achieved with the front mid-engine which is fitted low in the aluminium spaceframe. The engine employs dry sump lubrication. Lubrication takes place via a suction pump, a pressure pump and an external oil tank. This ensures an ideal supply of oil even at high lateral acceleration. Another aim is perfect balance. To this end, the dual clutch transmission sits on the rear axle.
AMG high-performance composite brake system with red brake callipers, standard for the Mercedes-AMG GT S. The Mercedes-AMG GT S. Diameter front 390 mm, rear 360 mm, internally ventilated and perforated. Designed for higher performance and enhanced braking force.
AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system (Optional), diameter front 402 mm, rear 360 mm, internally ventilated and perforated. 40% lighter than conventional composite disc brakes. Maximum service life, excellent deceleration values and precision brake control even under extreme loads.
Aluminium. Magnesium. Steel. These are the ingredients for the body-in-white of the new Mercedes-AMG GT S. The spaceframe consists largely of aluminium and weighs only 231 kg. An innovative architecture which is light, robust and extremely rigid in one. This provides the essential basis for the best possible lateral and longitudinal dynamics and maximum steering precision. The extremely light front module made of magnesium reduces the mass inertia ahead of the front axle and optimises the sports car’s agility. The boot lid is made of high-strength steel. If we had produced it in aluminium, it would have been heavier in order to ensure the necessary rigidity. That’s what we understand by intelligent lightweight design.
