We honestly weren’t expecting Mercedes to unveil the pricing for the highly anticipated Mercedes-AMG GT S sports coupe anytime soon. But there are people that want to know the price so badly they scoured the leaked information from the german automaker and this of course confirms that it’s not going to be a cheap car.
According to the always persistent guys from Jalopnik, and believe us when it comes to leaked information they are do they job very well, a whistleblower has shared a memo from Mercedes-Benz stating that the 503-hp 2016 Mercedes AMG GT S price will start at $129,900. There is no mention if that includes the destination and delivery charge, but in our opinion the bill will weight a bit extra.
Mercedes-AMG GT S cost comes with its perks and will include nappa leather, collision prevention, keyless entry and starting, and a Burmester sound system. While being way cheaper than the 525-hp Audi R8 V10 coupe’s that costs $155,450 and if you add the destination and delivery price. The interesting part is that the 2016 Mercedes AMG GT S price will might just be the same as the 475 horsepower Porsche 911 GT3’s $131,395.
But if you compare it with the the 550-hp Jaguar F-type R the Mercedes-AMG GT S is considerably higher and it also can’t carry the prestige of the prestigious german automaker but it still looks like a good bargain at a cost of just $99,925, and there are also plus other options. The new AMG equipped with all its perks and premium look it will surely cost more than $150K.
For the price $129,900, you are getting a great package to start adding on to. That includes the brand new 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 with 503 horsepower and 479 pound feet of torque. This price point is also great, though it is substantially more expensive than the F-Type R Coupe, which has similar power and style. It’s actually one of the closest competitor for the GT.
The new GT, and the higher-output GT S variant, offer lessons learned from the McLaren SLR and Mercedes AMG SLS to buyers with less than a fortune to spend. Prices haven’t been divulged, but expect this double-edged sword to attack the high end of the Porsche 911 range, between $115,000 and $150,000.
