Following last November’s preview, Wald International has introduced at Tokyo Auto Salon its customization package tailored to the Mercedes-AMG GT.
Wald usually comes out with flashy and ostentatious body kits, but this time the Japanese tuner decided to keep it more restrained. Dare we say it looks rather subtle compared to previous projects as the new Sports Line Black Bison Edition for the Mercedes-AMG has moderate changes. These are noticeable at the front fascia which now hosts a prominent lip spoiler attached to a reshaped bumper featuring side canards.
The back of the car has gone through more significant changes and the most important one is represented by the addition of a fixed wing. A new bumper incorporates a pair of side vents and there’s also a custom exhaust system with dual tips flanking a central diffuser. Rounding off the list of tweaks are the custom wheels, side skirt extensions, stiffer suspension springs, along with orange accents on some of the added goodies.
It’s only a visual package, so the Mercedes-AMG GT continues to feature the same biturbo 4.0-liter V8 delivering 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque in the flagship S version. A beefier version likely to wear the “R” suffix will be out this summer with more power, less weight, and active aero.
