It Has An Awesome Carbon Body-Kit

As far as Mercedes-AMG GT goes, the S version may be the optimal one. Its power level doesn’t start with the number four, but with five, and it does come with a bit more gear from the get-go compared to the entry-level AMG GT. No wonder, then, that it is one of the most popular options for tuning companies. Creative Bespoke from the U.S. included. They revealed their own tuning take on the Mercedes-AMG GT S, and it is rad, mad, and powerful.

Creative Bespoke Reimagined The Body Kit

Crafting an all-new carbon body kit, Creative Bespoke reimagined the front end integrating larger air intakes and a more pronounced grille

I remember the first time I saw that Corvette ZR1 glass cover on the hood at some motor show in Europe. Boy, was I hyped up. Later on, I found out that I am looking only at the plastic cover of an engine through it, but it did not even matter. I did not mind it then. I do not mind it now. Creative Bespoke and ADV1 did much the same for their Mercedes-AMG GT S project. It has a cool glass opening at the bonnet giving a unique insight into the guts of the AMG GT S. Usually, stuff like this lands on mid-engine supercars like Ferraris or even the R8, but having it on a car like the GT S does not seem like an exaggeration. Nevertheless, the rest of the body kit is equally impressive, so the glass hood opening does not even feel like the highlight of this car.

Crafting an all-new carbon body kit, Creative Bespoke reimagined the front end integrating larger air intakes and a more pronounced grille with blacked out Mercedes tri-spoke logo. It is also made of precious material.

Moving to the sides, Creative Bespoke reimagined the skirts that now complement 20-inch ADV.1 Wheels.

Moving to the sides, Creative Bespoke reimagined the skirts that now complement 20-inch ADV.1 Wheels. And, quite well, I might add. They fill out the fenders even better than on the stock car. This is courtesy of H&R sports springs which successfully lowered the car by some fraction.

Creative Bespoke did not leave the rear side intact either. The new diffuser, new exhaust tips, and the rear carbon spoiler give a somewhat sinister and rowdy appearance making the AMG GT S far more aggressive than stock. I will go that far and say that this GT S feels even more aggressive than the stunning GT R.

Far More Power From The 4.0-liter V-8

Thanks to PKG tune and ECU remap, as well as custom exhaust installation, the power surged to 622 horsepower and 595 pound-feet of torque.

Currently, the most potent AMG GT is the one designated with an R. Its 4.0-liter turbocharged motor develops 577 horsepower for some serious performance. Yet, the one from Creative Bespoke is even more powerful. Thanks to PKG tune and ECU remap, as well as custom exhaust installation, the power surged to 622 horsepower and 595 pound-feet of torque. Creative Bespoke did not report just how quick the new car is, but it should do 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds.
