2015 Mercedes AMG GT. 2014 Paris Motor show

Posted by: Bernard Winkelmann onOctober 6th, 2014

Being an AMG owner, new cars from AMG always get my attention. The new GT and GT S Model have my attention. Cars always look different in the flesh than do in pictures. This car is no exception to that rule.

When I first saw photos and videos of the GT, I was not impressed by the rear end. Early reports of the development of this car (not a direct replacement for the SLS) suggested that AMG was designing a 911 fighter. To me, the rear looks very Porsche. I don’t know if that was co-incidence or purposeful.

On the way to work the other day, I was behind the latest 911 and I couldn’t believe the resemblance of the GT to it.

The SLS also had a weird rear end that didn’t quite match the car. Maybe that is the intent of the AMG designers as both the SLS and the GT are not based on any car in the “regular” Mercedes line-up.

Please enjoy the photos live from the Paris Motor Show.
