These are the first pictures of the Mercedes-AMG GT Edition 1, which have leaked on the internet and reveal the beefed up styling of the new 503bhp V8-powered performance coupé. The model is set to have its public premier at next week’s Paris motor show.
The first of Mercedes-AMG’s GT models will be offered on a limited-volume basis in line with the German car maker’s Edition 1 sales strategy, which traditionally sees launch models offered with sporting accents and high levels of standard equipment as an incentive to prospective customers.
Mercedes-AMG is yet to provide official details on the GT Edition 1. However, these reportedly official photographs confirm it is differentiated from the standard GT and GT S models revealed earlier this month by a number of subtle exterior styling elements.
Included are carbonfibre additions to the front air ducts, carbonfibre extensions on the lower outer edges of the front bumper, carbonfibre embellishments within the sills, 10-spoke alloy wheels and a prominent fixed rear wing in place of the standard GT and GT S’s retractable appendage.
