Just 15 will be made.
Mercedes-AMG has been quite busy enhancing its portfolio recently while also working on its first electrified models. As the brand tests new models like the GT 73e at the Nurburgring, it is also working on replacing the AMG GT Roadster with an all-new SL model. Fortunately, the coupe seems to still be alive and well, and in some parts of the world, the Mercedes-AMG GT is being resurrected. We're talking here about Australia, which hasn't sold the sports coupe since 2019. But instead of just reintroducing the car to the Aussie market, Mercedes has decided to give buyers down under a special edition all their own. Meet the AMG GT Coupe Night Edition.
If you're expecting a boost in power, prepare for disappointment. This car gets the same 523 horsepower and 494 lb-ft of torque as our regular AMG GT. As before, the rear wheels are driven with the aid of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, allowing for a 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.7 seconds. Ride Control adaptive damping comes standard on this car, along with an e-LSD. You also get a carbon fiber roof with tinted stripes, a black Panamericana grille, black brake calipers with white AMG lettering, and a staggered set of 19-/20-inch wheels, thanks to the AMG Exterior Night package. The headlights are tinted too, and the dark them continues inside.
In the cabin, you get Nappa leather upholstery in black with a diamond-quilted design, Dinamica faux suede for the headliner and steering wheel, gloss black trim accents, tinted rear windows, and a 'Night Edition' badge on the center console. A Burmester sound system with 10 speakers takes care of your aural pleasure if the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8's rumble isn't good enough, but you'd expect a high-quality audio setup in a car that costs AU$294,200 (approximately $228,000 in our money). That figure buys you exclusivity too, as just 15 of these will be made in a choice of Obsidian Black, Selenite Grey, or designo Graphite Gray Magno (the matte finish you see here). Deliveries begin in the third quarter of the year.
