A preview of the interior of the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT high-performance supercar, scheduled to make its world debout in the autumn of 2014.
Following the global success of the SLS AMG, the new AMG GT is the second sports car developed fully independently by Mercedes-AMG.
A sneak preview of the interior provides an alluring foretaste of the new Mercedes-AMG GT: the design embodies emotion and sensuality like no other sports car. The interior of the Mercedes-AMG GT also boasts a fascinatingly exclusive look and feel, with the finest materials and outstanding workmanship combining to conjure up a setting that simply exudes class. The uncompromising lines of the interior components and their authentic materials exude a clarity that uses contrasting effects to help define the concept of “modern luxury”.
A dominant aspect in the cockpit of the GT is the further stylistic development of the central “aviation design” theme which is typical of Mercedes-Benz sports cars. The dashboard places an extreme emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing. This effect is supported by the four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at the left and right ends of the dashboard. The dominant centre console presents a correspondingly dynamic character: its shaping reminiscent of a NACA air intake and the employed materials suggest that it has been adopted directly from motor racing.
Another clever design feature comes in the form of the controls on the AMG DRIVE UNIT, which are arranged like eight cylinders in a V layout, further bolstering the powerful and high-tech impression made by the centre console.
