Replacing the legendary SLS AMG (the one with gull-wing doors) is the Coupe GT in 2015. There are five versions of this vehicle, which are very similar in structure, while their power varies: they are the standard GT (476 horsepower), the GT-3 (500HP), the GT-S (522HP), the GT-C (557HP), while the more powerful versions, the GT-R in the photo and the GT-R Pro, have the same power of 584HP. But there is also a decidedly exaggerated version, the limited Black Series one with a 725HP engine, which is however slower than the GT-3 when tested on a track. All models are fitted with an 8-cylinder engine and are accompanied by a dual-clutch gearbox called “Speedshift DCTI”. The design shows a very pronounced and easily recognizable muzzle. The aerodynamic coefficient of 0.36 is poor, especially if compared to the 0.20 of the EQS. The frame is made entirely of aluminum, but despite this, the GT has a quite high weight of 1645kg. The wheels’ dimensions range from 19″ for the less powerful versions to a configuration with 20″ rear and 19″ front wheels for the premium models. The hardness of the shock absorbers is adjustable and available for all models, but in the “basic” GT, it is a paid option. Another noteworthy option is the carbon-ceramic braking system, whose front brakes exceed 400 millimeters in size. Inside, finishes and technologies are in line with the competition, made up of supercars like the Lamborghini Huracan. The performance is enviable: the slower version, the standard GT, manages to reach 100km/h in 4 seconds, while the fastest, the GT-3, which is equipped with a naturally aspirated engine inherited from the SLS ancestor, reaches this speed in about 2,9 seconds. Prices range from around 100.000€/$ with taxes up to around 400.000€ taxes excluded for the GT3.
