2021 AMG GT Exterior

The Mercedes-AMG GT coupe has the kind of styling we don't see too often anymore. It's reminiscent of classic 2-door sports cars, circa 1960 to 1970 - a long hood, with a short, stubby cabin situated as close to the rear wheels as possible. It has LED headlights and taillights, and you can get a fixed rear spoiler. We wouldn't, however. It would be a spoiler, ruining the indulgent lines of the GT. One of our favorite design features is how flush the rear is. The trunk lid, taillights, and rear bumper don't look like separate entities but rather one epic piece of metal that could only have been sculpted by hand. It's not, but we love that it seems that way. Unlike the SLS predecessor, this eschews gullwing doors in favor of standard frameless doors.

A new-for-2021 Stealth Edition comes equipped with the AMG Exterior Night Package as standard, black brake calipers, a dark chrome Panamericana grille, and 19-inch AMG Y-spoke alloys in place of the standard silver items of the same size, naturally finished in matte black.

The AMG GT has an overall length of 179.4 inches and a 103.5-inch wheelbase. It's 76.3 inches wide without the side mirrors, which means it already has two of the basic requirements for performance motoring - a longish wheelbase and a wide track. The rear track is 65 inches, while the front is slightly wider at 66.1 inches. To cope with the additional power, the GT C is even wider at the hips at 79 inches. You can thank the extra-wide rear fenders needed to cover the wider rear tires for that. The standard GT weighs a demonic 3,666 pounds, while the GT C has a curb weight of 3,792 lbs.

Exterior Colors

The Mercedes-AMG GT has a disappointingly limited color palette. Only nine colors are available, with Jupiter Red and Brilliant Blue being the most striking options. Mercedes-AMG is likely saving the more exuberant color options for the more ferocious GT Black Series and GT R, which we review separately. Black and Jupiter Red are no-cost options, while the metallic options go for $720 each. The three designo shades cost between $1,000 to $4,000. It's a pity Mercedes-AMG dropped the spectacular Solarbeam as an option; while it wasn't our cup of tea, we have to admit that the GT looked quite spectacular dressed in yellow.
