For model year 2020, the top athlete from Affalterbach now comes to the starting line honed even further, and with the new limited edition AMG GT R PRO. In addition to exterior updates, the two-door AMG GT Coupes and Roadsters will be fitted with the AMG DYNAMICS integrated driving control system for added agility, a new AMG Performance steering wheel, the center console with innovative display buttons from the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe and a fully digital instrument display with exclusive AMG “Superport” display style on the instrument cluster. The AMG GT R PRO was modified in numerous details to deliver even more racetrack performance: The lightweight construction, new suspension and aerodynamic fine-tuning result in even more downforce overall. Lightweight-design wheels also contribute to the enhanced driving dynamics and faster lap times on the racetrack.

As in the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, the new telematics architecture in the two- door AMG GT models makes the innovative, standard fully digital instrument display with 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch multimedia display on the center console possible. The instrument cluster offers an entirely new screen design with the three AMG-specific display styles “Classic,” “Sporty” or “Supersport.” In the “Supersport” mode, there is also extensive additional information specific to AMG, such as a prompt borrowed from motorsport to shift up while in manual transmission mode. The newly designed visualizations in the multimedia display enable further vehicle functions to be experienced even more vividly, e.g. with an animated presentation of the driving assistance, vehicle and communication systems.

The 2-door AMG GT will also receive the new AMG performance steering wheel which celebrated its debut in the AMG GT 4-door coupe and is also available in the C 63. It is characterized by its sporty design, a flattened bottom section with a heavily contoured rim and intuitive operation. The steering wheel cover in black nappa leather is perforated at the sides to ensure optimum grip. On the AMG GT C the steering wheel comes standard with a rim in black nappa leather/DINAMICA microfiber. In the AMG GT R the rim is completely covered with DINAMICA microfiber. The AMG steering wheel also comes in black nappa leather with trim in black piano gloss, as well as DINAMICA microfiber with elements in high-gloss carbon fiber. The galvanized gearshift paddles on the steering wheel allow an even sportier driving style with manual gear shifting. All 2-door AMG GT models come standard with the new AMG steering wheel buttons. These consist of a round controller with an integrated display beneath the right-hand steering-wheel spoke, plus two vertically positioned color display buttons with switches beneath the left-hand steering-wheel spoke.

The new light controls of the LED high performance headlights now show parallels to the AMG GT 4-door coupe and therefore further enhance the AMG GT family connection. A tri-functional, arched light guide takes on the functions of daytime running light, navigation light and turn signals. The multi-chamber reflector system with three single reflectors each, for dipped beam and main beam, not only ensure optimal illumination of the roadway, but also give the AMG GT a sporty, dynamic look which gains even more optical depth as the result of the black background. The light of the LED tail lights also appears even deeper set and sportier through the dark background. From the back the new look of the rear bumper is striking, its sporty black diffuser insert was redesigned for the AMG GT and AMG GT C. At the same time the tail pipe outlet was visually redesigned and matched to the shape of the AMG GT 4-door coupe. The AMG GT now has two round twin tail pipe outlets, the AMG GT C has trapezoidal shaped twin tail pipe outlets.

As a new feature in the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT “Slippery,” “Comfort,” “Sport,” “Sport Plus,” “RACE” and “Individual” drive programs, the 2-door AMG GT now also comes with AMG DYNAMICS. This integrated driving dynamics regulation expands the functions of ESP® (electronic stability program) to exact distribution of power distribution at the rear axles and steering characteristics. In this way the AMG GT becomes even more agile. AMG DYNAMICS optimizes the transverse dynamics by higher lateral acceleration, better traction and load change reactions. Particularly remarkable: AMG DYNAMICS calculates how the vehicle will react. To do this, the system uses the available sensors that detect the speed, the steering angle or the yaw rate, for instance. Based on the pilot-control principle it is possible to anticipate the vehicle behavior on the basis of the driver’s actions and the data from the sensors. The control system reacts in this way even before the driver – and with no noticeable intervention of the system. The driver gets a very authentic driving feel with high cornering dynamics and optimum traction as well as high stability and predictable handling. Even experienced drivers receive optimum assistance without feeling patronised by the system.
