The length of the novelties is 4.5 meters (SLS was 4638 mm), width — 1939 mm, height 1287 mm

N new sportscar AMG GT (previously обозначавшийся as SLC), as it is known, will not be a direct replacement снимаемому with the production coupe Mercedes SLS AMG (at least to a much lesser rates of 110-120 thousand euros). However, according to many parameters, it should be not worse, but even better than his ideological predecessor. On it informs edition Autocar referring to the insiders. First of all confirmed by the engine completely new unit 4.0 V8 with two turbochargers. Develop a basic version 500 PS (SLS was 571 HP). The beginner should have a curb weight of approximately 1500-1550 kilograms. It’s not much, but it is still less than the mass of the SLS (1620 kg of the coupe version).

According to the British, the new sports coupe de facto be лифтбеком — with rear hatch opening together with glass. Such a change compared to the coupe SLS done for the sake of ease of access to the trunk. The novelty will visor spoiler, as the SLS, but the side doors will be normal swing.

Even more curious information about the maximum torque of the new turbo. It is approximately equal to the time, developing atmospheric engine V8 6.2 on SLS, that is, amounts to about 650 N•m if SLS peak torque is handed out at 4750 rpm, the GT it will be available lower than 2000 rpm it is not Surprising that the dynamics GT should be at least not weaker SLS. Novelty expected to accelerate from zero to a hundred for the time is noticeably shorter than 4 seconds (SLS was 3.8 seconds), and its maximum speed Mercedes AMG GT exceeds 300 km/h (SLS was 317 km/h). By the way, the new chetyrehlitrovy unit is the closest «relative» of than two-liter «турбочетверки» from A 45 AMG that shows the great potential to further boost.

Model AMG GT borrowed platform and chassis (double wishbones front and многорычажка rear) from SLS, but, of course, the machinery has been developed, in particular change the geometry of suspensions. And the most obvious change is the new electric power steering, taken from the next C-class instead of the old hydraulic.

For the configuration of chassis AMG GT meets Marcus Хофбауэр, which the Bureau of the Mercedes-AMG сманило of Porsche, where Marcus participated in developing the chassis last 911 th. Before Хофбауэром has a difficult task to set up the manageability AMG GT so that the new coupe could go round on the Nordschleife faster SLS. Add that to the coupe SLS retire in 2014, and the AMG GT will hit the market in early 2015. Produce novelty will be on the same line, where now collect SLS.
