The second generation Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe is available for 188,704 euros for the top version Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4Matic+ Coupe.

As expected, the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe is cheaper than the Mercedes-AMG SL convertible version. For now, the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe is only available in the top version AMG GT 63 4Matic+ with 585 PS for 188,704 euros, which is almost 6,000 euros less than the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 4Matic+, which costs 194,654 euro.

Later, the AMG GT 55 4Matic+ with the weaker V8 engine of 476 PS and the 4-cylinder AMG GT 43 4Matic+ with 381 PS will also be available.

The new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4Matic+ Coupe is almost 40% more expensive than the first generation, which had the same 4-liter twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet but with a lower output of 510 PS compared to 585 PS. In the 2015 test, the first generation AMG GT cost 134,351 euros compared to 188,704 euros for the new generation.

Part of the price difference is also justified by the richer standard equipment of the new generation. Thus, the new generation has all-wheel drive and integral steering for the first time, and AMG Ride Control suspension with active roll stabilization, while the first generation was exclusively rear-wheel drive.

Also, the new Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe has a 2+2 seating configuration compared to a strict 2-seater in the first generation. Two passengers can’t comfortably ride in the back, but the front passengers have a very good sense of space and more room for luggage that can also be stored in the back seats. The Easy-Pack tailgate is also standard.

The AMG GT can be configured with the AMG Aerodynamics package (3,510 euros), and the AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber package (5,117 euros). Ceramic disc brakes cost 8,925 euros, 21-inch AMG cross-spoked forged wheels 4,819 euros, and the Burmester High-End audio system 5,926 euros.

AMG Performance seats cost 2,320 euros, Seat Multicontour package another 833 euros, and AMG carbon trim inserts 2,737 euros.

    nice car… but when will Mercedes stop pandering to middle of the pack consumers that equate a tv on top of the dash board with quality. Look at the huge proportion of space that silly screen takes up in what was almost the best modern GT ever built going back to the Porsche 928. Top of the rail competitive brands have dropped the screens. I was prepared to ship a deposit until I saw that ugly, unnecessary waste of visual space in the GT – and the SL. These large screens are ugly and they distract from a driver’s first priority, watching the road. When was the last time a true performance car featured a TV on, or in the dash? Anyway, its an ugly, consumerist offence for a car so close to perfection.

      Dear sir, I agree with you. The new AMG GT is more a luxury GT than a sports car even the suspension is very firm.
