Mercedes-Benz unveils new AMG GT

Thu, Sep 18, 2014

It is always good to see how the other half live and such an occasion was the recent Mercedes-Benz unveiling off the much-vaunted AMG GT.

The four-litre twin-turbo V8 GT, with its front-mounted engine, rear wheel drive train and lightweight aluminium body, is being produced in a powerful 530bhp GTS version initially. This will be followed soon afterwards in a slightly more refined 456bhp version. Both will be available to Irish buyers from mid-2015, with the GTS version being first to arrive in May to be followed two months later by the GT version.
