2021 Mercedes AMG GT: Stealth Edition
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a new Stealth Edition for the base AMG GT supercar, refreshed last summer. So far, it has been announced for coupes and roadsters on the US market. For 2021, the GT Roadster and coupe are both getting menacingly murdered-out special edition to complement a significant uptick and power and upgraded components.
Building on the AMG Exterior Night Package, the Stealth Edition's body, brake calipers, 19-inch Y-spoke front wheels, 20-inch rear wheels, and headlight elements in black. The roadster gets a simple black soft top, while the coupe is topped with a carbon-fiber roof embedded with tinted glass. Rounding out the Stealth Edition's exterior is an AMG grille completed in dark chrome.
The special version is distinguished by matte black body color, darkened optics, and a new roof design (carbon fiber top for the coupe and black fabric for the roadster). The special version also includes the AMG Exterior Night Package and an interior decal with its designation. In addition to the standard black body, you can order the car in one of two shades of gray.
Inside, the DINAMICA microfiber-wrapped steering wheel features black spokes and shift paddles that match Nappa-style leather upholstery with diamond quilting, black topstitching, and trim elements in black piano lacquer. A unique badge in the center console completes the package.
After the upgrade, the base AMG GT's four-liter V8 develops 523bhp, 54bhp more than before. The torque is increased by 40 Nm to 670 Nm. In comparison, the more powerful Mercedes-AMG GT C produces 550 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque. Thanks to the higher power, acceleration from zero to hundred was reduced by 0.2 seconds to 3.7 seconds. Top speeds are 312 and 310 kmph for the coupe and roadster, respectively.
The Mercedes-AMG GT now comes standard with the adaptive AMG Ride Control suspension, electronically limited-slip differential. The seven-speed automatic transmission has received an additional Race mode.
Well to bring this on-road monster to a dead stop, Mercedes uses the AMG high-performance composite system—meaning composite in the sense of iron rotors and aluminum calipers, rather than carbon composite rotors.
Sales of the updated Mercedes-AMG GT will start in the United States in early 2021. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
