2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Celebrates Launch with Edition 1 Model

8

Like other Mercedes-AMG models in the past, the all-new GT 4-Door will celebrate its launch with a special edition model.

Called the Edition 1, Mercedes-AMG has meticulously selected equipment and appointments for both the interior and exterior that emphasize exclusivity and sportiness. Available exclusively on the AMG GT 63 S model early next year, the Edition 1 will celebrate its world premiere at the Nurburgring 24 Hours race this weekend.

On the outside, the four-door coupe gets an AMG Aerodynamics Package which includes a larger front splitter and integrated flics in the front bumper, optimized diffuser, and fixed rear spoiler with mechanically-adjustable angle. The exterior is finished in designo Graphite Grey Magno, while AMG sports stripes in matte Graphite Grey can be found on the sides above the side sill panels, on the hood, roof, and decklid. Finishing off the aesthetics is a set of 21-inch AMG cross-spoke forged wheels, painted matte black with a high-sheen finish.

More upgrades can be found inside the cabin, with AMG Multicontour Performance Seats with Memory Package greeting passengers. The interior has been done in exclusive Nappa leather in Magma Grey/Black with yellow contrast topstitching. AMG matte carbon fiber trim blends in nicely with the darker theme, while yellow seatbelts further provide a bit of contrast. Of course there’s an AMG Performance steering wheel for the driver, finished in Dinamica microfiber with yellow contrast topstitching, a yellow 12 o’clock marking, and an Edition 1 badge.

Further interior changes include Magma Grey Nappa leather found on the door center panels, armrests in the door, and on the center console, while the upper section of the instrument panel and door beltlines are wrapped in black Nappa leather with yellow contrast topstitching. In addition, the model also includes the Air-Balance Package, which features a new, dedicated “AMG #63” fragrance, illuminated AMG door sill panels, and edition-specific floor mats in black.

Like the standard 4-Door Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S, the Edition 1 model is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 630 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, paired to an AMG Speedshift nine-speed transmission. The sporty four-door coupe is able to reach 60 mph from a standstill in 3.1 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 195 mph.

Look for pricing to be announced closer to the 4-Door AMG GT’s launch early next year.
