2016 Mercedes-AMG GT Edition 1 Model Debuts

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 10/6/2014 Joseph Capparella

For buyers of the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT sports car who desire something a bit more special, Mercedes-Benz is rolling out an “Edition 1” version of this Porsche 911 fighter with a slightly different look and a significantly higher price.

The Edition 1 model is based on the more powerful Mercedes-AMG GT S that comes standard with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine pumping out 503 hp and 479 kb-ft of torque (the non-S version of the new sports car makes just 456 hp and 443 lb-ft). Beyond this already enticing package, the Edition 1 package adds a special aerodynamic kit with a front splitter, rear spoiler and wheel archest; a carbon-fiber roof; black trim for the grille, mirrors, tailpipe, and diffuser; and special black 10-spoke light-alloy wheel wheels. This all makes for a more sinister look, especially when outfitted in matte grey exterior paint as pictured here.

The exclusive look of the Edition 1 car will cost a pretty penny, as European pricing puts this special model 14,161 euros (about $17,800) above the standard AMG GT S in price. We haven’t yet heard U.S. pricing on this new model, but expect a similarly hefty premium for our model. We also don’t know how many Edition 1 cars will make it to the U.S. when the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S goes on sale here in spring 2015, with the base AMG GT to follow a year later. For now, check out the photos of the Edition 1 version of this new sports car in the gallery below.
