A wide rear end, long bonnet, large wheels and gullwing doors add to the exclusive exterior of this car, while a practical luggage compartment with a capacity of two golf bags is covered by a large tailgate. The spacious and modish interior of the Mercedes-AMG GT ensures maximum sportiness and dynamic character using authentic materials, echoed details and state-of-the-art technologies.
