Rumors about the Mercedes AMG GT started awhile back and for a short period of time, it was believed that the new SLS AMG would be called the SLC. Obviously, this is not the case, but hopes for an AMG GT are still not lost as Mercedes will indeed offer the AMG GT after the SLS AMG makes its exit.
The AMG GT will actually be the baby brother of the SLS and will attack the likes of the Porsche 911 . Compared to the SLS, the future AMG GT will be lighter and slimmer with the use of plenty of carbon fiber and aluminum. In a shocking twist of SLS insult, the AMG GT will be devoid of gullwing doors.
The less dramatic specifications of the Mercedes AMG GT have also given way to a cheaper price tag compared to its brother. Expect to pay somewhere under €100,000 (about $145,000 at the current exchange rates).
