2024 Mercedes-AMG GT Review

The new 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT is instantly recognizable, even though every part that makes up the car has been revamped. The Savage face has the Panamericana grille that has a glossy black extension beneath that is reminiscent of the previous Black Series. The headlights feature softer curves and the slim taillights have been joined by an aluminum trim piece under an active spoiler on the rear. The car is equipped with 20-inch wheels by default and is also available with 21-inch alloys.

The distinctive rear shoulders appear larger, which sends images of 911, whereas the proportions are more even than they were before. This is because the brand new AMG GT is 182 mm (7.2 inches) wider, with a length of 4,728 mm (186.1 inches), and has a wheelbase of 2700mm (106.3 inches) that is extended by 70 millimeters (2.8 inches).

The latest model is 45 millimeters (1.8 inches) bigger and 66 mm (2.5 inches) higher than the predecessor. Despite its familiar appearance and dimensions Despite the familiar looks and proportions, the AMG GT is based on the latest design that is made up of steel, aluminum, magnesium as well and fiber-composites (glass as well as carbon) which gives space for the layout of 2+2 and a bigger boot.


The interior features the dashboard that features the 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster as well and the 11.9-inch infotainment screen is transferred to the SL. Additionally, the AMG Performance steering wheel as well as the bucket seats that have integrated headrests that are ventilated, create a premium and sporty ambiance. The rear space appears rather cramped, as is the case with most 2+2 options as the rear seats are designed for children or those who are 1.5 millimeters (4.9 feet) tall. The capacity of cargo varies from 321 Lt (11.3 cubic feet) to 675 Lt (23.8 cubic feet) which makes it ideal for long-distance trips.

It accelerates from 100km/h (0-62 miles per hour) in 3.2 seconds and achieves a top speed of 315 km/h (195.7 mph). It’s unclear what the future holds for this model, but AMG will launch a lower 43 version that comes with the turbo four found in the SL model, however, from our spy images the more robust plug-in hybrid GT E Performance should be thought of as a possible option.

The GT is equipped with a 9-speed AMG Speedshift automatic that is placed behind the engine and features a wet-starting clutch instead of the torque converter. Contrary to its predecessor that had rear-wheel-drive the GT is now equipped with the fully adjustable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system. The standard kit also includes tech goodies like the AMG Active Ride Control suspension.
