Mercedes-Benz will launch the AMG GT S for the Indian market at an event tomorrow in Delhi. This performance car will be the flagship model of the Mercedes-Benz AMG range of cars and will be sold through the AMG dealerships in our country.
The Mercedes-AMG GT S is a new two-door coupe derived from the SLS AMG and borrows most of the styling cues from the larger siblings, the SLS as well as the SLK55 AMG. The sports car is globally available in different colours like black, yellow, two shades of red, silver, grey, white and blue. Since the car will be a direct import to India via Germany, we can expect the manufacturer to offer all these options here.
The AMG GT gets a front mid-engine layout and is globally offered in two states of tune for the engine. The twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine pumps out 455bhp of power in the standard version. The GT S which will be available for the Indian market, is tuned to churn out 510bhp of power and 650Nm of torque. This mill is Euro 6-compliant and is the latest member of the BlueDIRECT engine family. It claims high levels of performance and efficiency.
The Mercedes-AMG GT S was unveiled globally earlier this year in the form of a safety car. It created a huge excitement back then and is expected to recreate the same amongst AMG car fans and enthusiasts in India. The car will join the stable of other AMG performance cars in India and will be brought to our country via the CBU route. We can expect the German automaker to price it above Rs 2 crore.
