For this money you will be getting the base GT version which packs a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine delivering 462 HP (339 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft). If that’s not enough, upgrade for the GT S variant (from £110,495) which bumps output to 510 HP (375 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft). The hotter version also gets larger 20-inch wheels (19-inch for GT), red brake calipers, bigger discs, AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension and an electronically-controlled rear differential.

There's also a more expensive Mercedes-AMG GT S Edition 1 version kicking off at £122,745 which adds a fixed rear wing as well as a deep front splitter. It can also be distinguished by its carbon fiber roof, glossy silver & black 19-inch front / 20-inch rear wheels and black mirror housings. Inside it benefits from red contrasting stitching along with a leather & suede finish for the AMG Performance seats and steering wheel while the center console gets a Black Diamond textured finish.

At an additional cost, customers can order an optional Premium Pack (£4,195) which brings a reversing camera, fixed panoramic sunroof, mirror package, keyless go and a 640-watt Burmester sound system. The AMG ceramic composite brakes are an extra £5,995 while the AMG Performance seats (standard on the Edition 1) can be had for £1,895.

Deliveries of the AMG GT S and GT S Edition 1 will kick off in April 2015 whereas the standard AMG GT is set to arrive towards the end of next year.
