Merc releases official teaser shots of their SLS replacement.
Two pictures of the cockpit. That’s all Mercedes is using to whet the appetite of the motoring public for possibly one of the most hotly anticipated cars in the maker’s history-the replacement for the gullwing SLS, Mercedes-AMG GT.
“The new Mercedes-AMG GT shows that we will be positioning AMG more vehemently and aggressively than to date as a dynamic sports car brand,” explains Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.”Following the global success of the SLS AMG, the new GT is the second sports car developed fully independently by Mercedes-AMG. An initial exclusive look at the design of the interior shows what is in store for our customers: a GT sports car in its purest form,” Moers adds.
Mercedes designers are believed to have taken inspiration from aeroplanes, with aviation style air vents that are also seen in other sporty Mercedes models. Similarly, hints of SLS influence are evident in various areas of cabin, especially the door trims.
Controls for the AMG DRIVE are organised in a “V” shaped layout to not only give the interior a unique character, but to also pay homage to the V8 that lurks under the bonnet.
