AMG has also produced new chassis mounts in a bid to improve NVH properties and the road area sensitivity of the primary design.
The uniquely styled human body, in the meantime, takes advantage of a mix of aluminium, steel, magnesium and carbonfibre.
Vital amongst the variations to the new performance coupé is an abandoning of the rear transaxle, a format 1st used with the SLS and ongoing by way of to the initially-technology GT. Instead, the new GT’s engine and gearbox are mated up entrance in a shift aimed at releasing up area for a entirely variable 4Matic+ 4-wheel drive system and rear-wheel steering, as viewed on the SL.
Even with the change, the new model’s entrance-to-rear weight distribution is claimed not to fluctuate much from the outgoing GT’s 47:53 figure.
Beneath, freshly made Energetic Roll Control suspension employs a blend of double wishbones up entrance and a multi-connection arrangement at the rear, with metal springs, variable damping and hydraulically operated roll bars. At the time again, it is the same established-up employed by the SL but with altered elastokinematic qualities and tuning to give the GT “a distinctly distinct driving character”.
Inside of, the GT is envisioned to aspect largely the exact same 2+2 inside as the SL, albeit with specific improvements in trim to replicate its extra overtly sporting positioning.
