Mercedes-AMG reveals price of new GT–and to no surprise, it’s a lot

Mercedes-AMG finally released the details on its new GT pricing. Those wanting Benz’s new baby SLS are going to have to cough up a hefty $129,900, not including the $925 destination charge.

For that, you get Mercedes’ all-new 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8, wrapped up in a carbon-aluminum-steel body that mimics the larger, more expensive and exclusive, SLS AMG.

Mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch auto, 60 zooms by in just 3.7 seconds.

Segment-Leading Sports Car to Start at $129,900*

January 23, 2015 – MONTVALE, NJ

With the new Mercedes-AMG GT model range, the Mercedes-AMG sports car brand is moving into a new segment. As the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG, the GT has everything you would expect from an authentic Mercedes-AMG, from the characteristic styling, thoroughbred motorsport technology to the optimum weight distribution.

Starting at an MSRP of $129,900,* the Mercedes-AMG GT S features a long list of standard features, including Nappa Leather, Keyless-GO, COMAND, Collision Prevention Assist PLUS, Parktronic, 8 Airbags, and a Burmester Surround Sound System. The GT S is powered by a 4.0 bi-turbo V8 engine that features an output of 503 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, delivering an impressive 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds. The U.S. market launch of the GT S is scheduled for April 2015.

The base GT variant goes on sale in the U.S. in Spring 2016 with 456 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. More information on pricing and equipment levels for both the Mercedes-AMG GT S and GT will be made available closer to their respective launch dates.
