The Mercedes AMG GT 4-Door Coupé received improvements in ride comfort, a wider range of equipment and a Custom Edition as part of a 2021 update.
Changes are so far limited to the 3.0-liter six-cylinder variants, which are not sold in the UK. We are only offered the V8-powered GT 63, which will be given a makeover later this year, gaining a series of visual and dynamic tweaks. A a new GT 73e plug-in hybrid model with 800 hp will also be added.
The most obvious changes for the standard car include an updated wheel selection and new upholstery, trims, exterior colors and re-tuned suspension for improved ride comfort.
The changes include a reconfiguration of the AMG Ride Control + suspension setup. Damping can be electronically adjusted via variable control valves, which, according to the German firm, can be adapted to improve comfort or sporty dynamics.
The steering wheel has also been updated, getting a “handy” sensor that activates the emergency brake assist function if the driver becomes unresponsive or becomes inactive.
the boss of AMG Philipp Schiemer said: “We constantly maintain our AMG GT 4-Door Coupé to an exceptional technical level. With the current update and the exclusive edition, we are addressing target groups who place the greatest importance on individuality and an expressive lifestyle.
“We continue to develop our profile as a ‘performance luxury’ brand and continue to prove it with tailor-made products and options.
“In addition, we will soon introduce our first E Performance hybrids in this model, further advancing the electrification of the powertrain. ”
The new exclusive Edition model is geared towards luxury and comfort. It’s available for all engine options and gets the V8 styling package, rubellite red exterior paint, shiny chrome, and new 21-inch wheels.
The exterior styling of the 4-Door GT Coupe remains unchanged, although customers can now choose to adapt the appearance of the car’s front end on eight-cylinder models. Three new exterior colors have been added to all models: Spectral Blue Metallic, Spectral Blue Matte and Cashmere White Matte.
The updated car will start arriving at European dealerships from August this year, possibly commanding a small premium over the outgoing variant.
