The Mercedes-AMG GT is actually three very different cars, with a lineup including the Coupe, Roadster, and the four-door that's cleverly named AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. All offer serious performance, but the two-door models are full-on sports cars while the 4-door leans toward the Grand Touring part of the GT name.
Changes for 2021 see new adjustable dampers and some other extra features that were on the GT S coupe moved to the standard GT. There were no other significant changes to the GT line.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe is offered as GT C, GTR and GT Black Series. They'll provide 550 hp and 502 lb-ft from a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 or 577 from the track-focused GTR. Roadster is GT C only with the same engine. GT 4-Door is offered as the V6-powered, 429 hp GT 53, 577 hp GT 63, and the 630 hp GT 63 S.
GT C models come with Ride Control three-stage adaptive damping with three selectable drive modes. They also have speed-sensitive power steering and rear-wheel steer. A special AMG 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is standard, with various race and performance displays as well as special steering-wheel buttons to control the drive modes. Heated and ventilated front seats are standard with Nappa leather or microfibre coverings. A 10.25-inch infotainment system is standard with Burmester audio, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto. Active brake assist, adaptive high beams, blind spot assist, front and rear cameras, and adaptive braking are all standard, with adaptive cruise optional.
GT R models add a fixed rear wing and more aggressive wheels, along with carbon fibre and R-specific finishes inside. The R offers nine levels of traction control to allow for more flexibility for the driver without removing all of the assists. there is carbon fibre bracing underneath and a carbon fibre roof panel. GT R Pro adds adjustable suspension components, ceramic brakes, and carbon fibre trim.
GT 53 has a sport exhaust and composite brakes as well as active brake assist, crosswind assist, adaptive high beams, and blind-spot alerts but adds traffic sign recognition, car-to-x-communication, and heated windshield washers. Inside are heated AMG sport seats, 64-colour LED ambient lighting, and a 115-v electric outlet. A 12.3-inch digital dash is joined by a 12.3-inch infotainment display.
GT 63 adds ventilated seats, rapid heating front seats, 360-degree camera, and warmed door panels and armrests. GT 63 S adds a more powerful version of the 4.0L engine with race and drift modes for the dynamics control system.
Optional on GT 63 is a rear seating package with split-folding rear seats, two USB ports, and a rear cabin display. Comfort Package adds air purifying and cabin fragrance, and Intelligent Drive Package adds more active safety features including radar cruise, evasive steering assist, and enhanced stop-and-go. GT 63 S and GT 53 add heated seats to the rear seating package, along with a separate climate control zone. Comfort Package on 63 S and 53 adds air-bladder multicontour massage seats.
GT 53 adds a premium package with ventilated front seats, heated wheel, 360-camera, Burmester audio, soft-close doors, and Nappa upholstery.
Mercedes-AMG estimates fuel economy for the GT C Coupe at 15.3/11.4 L/100 km (city/highway). GT R Coupe is 15.9/11.8, and GT C Roadster is 15.2/11.4. The GT 53 is estimated to get 12.4/9.8, the GT 63 15.5/11.5 and the GT 63 S 15.6/11.5.
The AMG GT Coupe and Roadster compete with cars like Jaguar's F-Type, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, and Porsche 911 Turbo, all of which offer extensive luxury and performance trimmings. The GT 4-Door is in line with Audi's S7 and RS7, the BMW 8 Series, and the Porsche Panamera.
