Mercedes-AMG is restructuring the range of output/torque variants of the 4.0L V8 biturbo engine, hence the AMG GT entry-level model now puts out 469 hp (13 hp more than before). In addition, with 465 lb-ft, the basic version of the eight-cylinder machine now delivers an extra 22 lb-ft of peak torque. The same figures will apply to the GT Roadster from its market launch.
The output from the GT S grows by 12 hp to 515 hp, with the peak torque climbing to 494 lb-ft, a 15 lb-ft increase.
The next level is marked by the GT C variants of the Coupe and Roadster with 550 hp and 502 lb-ft peak torque. The pinnacle of the AMG GT lineup is the AMG GT R, which boasts 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
