AMG 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine

Located in the central section of the vehicle, the front mid-engine has a dry weight of just 209 kg. It is installed low down within the aluminium spaceframe for a low centre of gravity.

A transaxle configuration means that the engine is connected to the dual-clutch transmission behind it as a fixed unit – for perfect balance. With dry sump lubrication, the major assembly also ensures optimum oil supply even under powerful lateral acceleration.

Torque tube

The front mid-engine forms a fixed unit with the dual-clutch transmission. The components are connected by a flexurally and torsionally rigid torque tube.

Inside there is an extremely lightweight, torsionally stiff drive shaft made of carbon fibre. It transmits the output of the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, which ultimately transforms the power into acceleration. Inconceivably fast and breathtaking.

AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension

The AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with adaptive damping – which is part of the standard equipment for the Mercedes-AMG GT R – is a combination of bold performance and first-rate refinement.

When combined with a double wishbone concept it enables racetrack performance featuring excellent lateral dynamics and driving stability at high speeds. It adjusts the damping characteristics at each individual wheel to the driving style and condition of the road.

AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission enables immediate gear changes and racing-level performance: the sportier the mode, the more agile the response time.

Only minor engine speed changes from gear to gear allow adaptations to the transmission ratio and fast gearshifts without interrupting the tractive power. Seven gears, three driving programs, a manual mode, double-declutching and the RACE START function provide exhilarating dynamic acceleration manoeuvres.

AMG composite braking system

The AMG high-performance composite braking system offers excellent deceleration values and precision braking with its internally vented and cross-drilled brake discs.

Benefits of the optional AMG ceramic high-performance composite braking system: it saves on weight (17 kg), has a longer service life and even better stability.

Optimal weight distribution.

The photo shows a bird's-eye view of the Mercedes-AMG GT.

Optimal weight distribution.

Due to its front-mid engine and AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with transaxle configuration, the Mercedes-AMG GT R achieves an optimal weight distribution of 47% to 53% between the front and rear axle. Combined with a low vehicle centre of gravity, this ensures exceptionally agile handling and high cornering speeds. Ultimately, races are won in the curves.

Carbon-fibre. Aluminium. Magnesium. Steel.

These are the ingredients of the Mercedes-AMG GT's body in white. The spaceframe is largely made of aluminium and weighs just 231 kg. The innovative architecture is simultaneously lightweight, strong and extremely rigid. That is a prerequisite for the best possible lateral and longitudinal dynamics and maximum steering precision. The extremely lightweight front module is made of magnesium, reduces the inertia forward of the front axle and thus optimises the sports car's agility.
