Heritage of the Mercedes-AMG GT Series

The Mercedes-AMG GT Series represents a fusion of racing heritage and modern grand touring luxury. It’s a story unfolding through groundbreaking design, innovative engineering, and a pursuit of perfection. 

 

As we delve into the history of this iconic series, we uncover the journey of a brand that has redefined the limits of automotive excellence. From the drawing board to the racetrack and onto the world’s most prestigious roads, the AMG GT Series has etched its name in the annals of automobiles.

 

Legacy of the Mercedes-AMG GT

The AMG GT, a grand tourer first graced the automotive world in September 2014. Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, it marked a new chapter in the saga of Mercedes-AMG, a brand synonymous with precision engineering and unparalleled design.

 

The GT’s design pays homage to its predecessors while forging its identity. Inspired by the wide wheel arches and sloping roofline of the SLS AMG, its exterior diverged from the gullwing doors, opting instead for forward-opening doors. This design choice was a nod to the iconic 300 SL of the 1950s, blending heritage with modernity. The car’s structure, aluminum with a magnesium front module, exemplifies the brand’s dedication to lightweight construction.

 

Inside, the AMG GT introduced a new realm of luxury, with a large center console and quality materials, reflecting Mercedes-AMG’s pursuit of perfection. The interior, designed by Jan Kaul, was a testament to the brand’s craftsmanship, offering a balance of performance-oriented design and lavish comfort.

 

The Distinction of the Mercedes-AMG GT S

The Mercedes-AMG GT S, introduced alongside the standard GT, took the grand tourer concept to new heights. As a more potent variant, the GT S delivers heightened performance without sacrificing its counterpart’s grandeur. 

 

The heart of the GT S is its 4.0L M178 twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which produces an exhilarating 503 horsepower. This, combined with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential and AMG’s SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, offered drivers an unmatched sports car experience.

 

The GT S distinguished itself with various enhancements over the GT model, including an adaptive suspension system, AMG Performance Exhaust System, and a staggered wheel setup. These features augmented the car’s performance and presence, making it a standout choice for enthusiasts seeking power and panache.

 

Each iteration of the GT S has been a step forward in Mercedes-AMG’s pursuit of automotive excellence, blending its racing heritage with glamour in a package that’s as thrilling to drive as it is to behold.

 

The GT S represents more than just a model in the AMG lineup; it is a testament to the brand’s philosophy of “One Man, One Engine,” an ethos that ensures each vehicle is crafted with a personal touch.

 

Performance

The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S encapsulates the zenith of automotive performance, blending technical prowess with exhilarating driving dynamics. 

 

Engine Specifications

The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S is powered by a 4.0-liter Biturbo (twin-turbocharged) V8 engine (M178). This heart of the vehicle offers a potent output of 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Its “hot inside V” configuration, with exhaust manifolds and turbochargers nestled inside the cylinder banks, reduces turbo lag, ensuring immediate power delivery. 

 

The engine employs dry-sump lubrication, enhancing its performance by maintaining oil flow and engine cooling even under extreme conditions. This setup ensures peak performance and contributes to the vehicle’s lower center of gravity, enhancing its handling and stability. It offers a powerful and refined drive, an embodiment of performance engineering.

 

Transmission

The GT S is equipped with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed transmission, an automated dual-clutch manual transmission that offers seamless gear changes. This transmission system comprises two sub-transmissions, each with a clutch, allowing for rapid shifts without losing tractive power. 

 

The driver can choose between three modes — “Economy,” “Sport,” and “Manual”. The “Sport” mode allows for higher revs and earlier downshifts, while “Manual” offers engaging shifts using steering wheel gearshift paddles. The ECO start/stop function and the seamless gear transitions contribute to the car’s efficiency and driving comfort.

 

Handling and Suspension

The AMG GT S’s handling is a blend of agility and poise, thanks to its front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout, and the spaceframe chassis made of aluminum alloys. With forged aluminum components, the double-wishbone suspension setup at the front and rear, ensures responsive handling. 

 

This system, coupled with the car’s optimal weight distribution (47% front, 53% rear) and its 103.5-inch wheelbase, results in a stable driving experience, whether on a highway or a winding mountain road. The steering, a rack-pinion type with a 44.4-foot turning diameter, offers control and feedback, making the GT S a joy to maneuver in all driving scenarios.

 

Acceleration and Speed

Performance is where the AMG GT S shines. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, a figure that speaks to the sheer capability and engineering behind this machine. With a top speed of 193 mph, the GT S delivers exhilarating speed with stability and control.

 

However, the GT S can surpass its official numbers. Car and Driver’s road test clocked the vehicle accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, completing a quarter mile in 11.2 seconds while reaching its top speed. 

 

Fuel Efficiency

The GT S marries its high-performance nature with fuel efficiency. EPA estimates rate it at 18 mpg combined, with 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, impressive for a car with this power. The 17-gallon fuel tank provides a decent range, ensuring that the GT S is as practical for daily driving as it is exhilarating for spirited runs.

 

The Car and Driver Experience: Driving the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S

Driving the 2016 AMG GT S is an engagement with a machine that embodies the spirit of high-performance motoring. From its unbridled power to its sophisticated handling, the GT S is a testament to Mercedes-AMG’s legacy in crafting vehicles that provide thrills and refinement.

 

With its twin-turbocharged V8 engine and responsive throttle,the AMG GT S invites drivers to push the limits, especially in Sport or Sport Plus modes. The car’s engine, coupled with an adaptive suspension and a staggered wheel setup (19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch at the rear), ensures a driving experience that is robust yet controlled. 

 

On mountain roads or race tracks, the GT S holds the road and responds to every command. Its balanced handling, enhanced by the limited-slip differential and AMG Ride Control suspension allows for controlled rear-end slides and precise cornering.

 

Despite its track-ready capabilities, the AMG GT S outshines as a grand tourer. Its adjustable suspension settings make it suitable for long drives. The seating position is low in the bolstered and comfortable seats, and the cabin remains quiet, adding to its grand touring credentials. Yet, the GT S retains a sporty edge, with a stiff ride even in its most comfortable mode.

 

The GT S features nuanced steering and a sophisticated transmission system. While softer,the steering is hefty and communicative, allowing drivers to feel connected to the road. The 7-speed transmission impresses with its crisp shifts and perfect rev-matching for downshifts. Whether using the auto or selecting gears with the paddles, the response is immediate and satisfying. The transition from city to spirited highway driving is seamless.

 

In race mode, the car becomes more engaging, with the stability program allowing for greater slip angles while still providing a safety net. The grip levels are high, and the steering becomes more direct. The car communicates well, letting the driver know when they approach the limits, and the strong carbon-ceramic brakes ensure confidence under hard braking.

 

While the GT S is focused on performance, it also provides comfort and sophistication expected in a high-end Mercedes-AMG model. The COMAND interface and navigation system offer a range of connected features and impressive graphics. The Burmester audio system is a standout feature, delivering exceptional sound quality that competes with the engine’s roar.
