Mercedes Benz GT63S AMG Rent in Dubai
Created by AMG, the in-house speed shop of Mercedes, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT and GT C are the luxury brand’s answer to the Porsche 911, while the track-focused GT R and GT R Pro rival the Porsche 911 GT3 and GT3 RS. The two-seat sports cars are offered as a coupe or soft-top roadster and serve as the halo sports cars to the Mercedes-AMG lineup. Gorgeously curvaceous and brutally quick, with zero-to-60-mph times of less than 3.5 seconds, all are front-engine, rear-wheel-drive machines powered by a thunderous turbocharged V-8 with considerable might. A dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission is standard. With grip surpassing 1.0 g, these are hard-core performance machines, but the GT and GT C models also offer everyday civility.
Mercedes-AMG updated the interior and exterior of its GT and GT R models for 2020. On the outside, there are new LED head- and taillights, a redesigned rear diffuser, new model-specific exhaust tips, new wheels, and a new Designo color, Brilliant Blue Magno. Inside, a standard fully digital 12.3-inch instrument-cluster display has been added along with a new 10.3-inch multimedia-center display. The center console has been redesigned with capacitive display buttons and an optional touchpad infotainment interface. The new steering wheel features AMG Drive Unit controls, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration is now standard. There’s also a new AMG Track Pace virtual race engineer COMAND application, so you can monitor your lap times.
For 2021, AMG gives the basic GT fresh standard features, more power, and a Stealth Edition. With an additional 54 horsepower and 29 pound-feet of torque, the GT’s engine now makes 523 ponies and 494 pound-feet. Estimated acceleration times and top speeds also increase, with a claimed 60-mph time of 3.7 seconds (two-tenths quicker than before) and a top speed of 194 mph for the coupe and 193 mph for the roadster. Both body styles now come standard with a lithium-ion starter battery, a Race drive mode, the AMG Ride Control sport suspension with adaptive dampers, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, and a braking system with iron rotors and red-painted aluminum calipers. The Stealth Edition gives the GT a sinister look, with blacked-out elements on the inside and outside of the car.
With 469 horsepower, Mercedes Benz GT63S AMG Rent in Dubai coupe can hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, making it a strong value at less than $120,000. But the GT C models get larger wheels and tires, an adjustable suspension, rear-wheel steering, composite brakes, and a considerable increase in power and handling. With 550 horsepower and a zero-to-60-mph time of 3.3 seconds in our testing, the price jump is justified. Mercedes will only build 750 examples of the GT R roadster and 150 examples of the GT R Pro, assuring their exclusivity.
Every Mercedes Benz GT63S AMG Rent in Dubai, GT C, and GT R is powered by a 4.0-liter V-8. Every model also gets a carbon-fiber driveshaft and a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transaxle, which improves balance and handling. The engine is a technological tour de force, with dry-sump oiling, direct injection, and two turbochargers. It’s rated to produce 469 horsepower in the GT models, but it’s cranked up to 550 horsepower in the GT C variants and 577 horsepower in the GT R and GT R Pro, which also get an aerodynamics package that increases downforce by 220 pounds at 155 mph versus the standard GT R, improving grip and performance on the racetrack. When driven by Mercedes-AMG factory driver Maro Engel, Mercedes says the GT R Pro laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife six seconds faster than the standard GT R. Buyers should be aware, however, that the 443-hp 2020 Porsche 911 S is quicker than the Mercedes, hitting 60 mph in 3.0 seconds.
With such performance, it’s no surprise the Mercedes-AMG GT, GT C, and GT R are thirsty, but their EPA fuel-economy estimates aren’t as dire as you might expect. The GT models are rated 16/22 mpg city/highway. Those numbers drop for the more powerful GT C models to 15/21 mpg. The GT R and GT R Pro are rated 15/20 mpg city/highway. For comparison, the 2020 Porsche 911 S, which is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six, is rated at 18/23 mpg.
Mercedes has successfully updated the interior of its sports car for 2020, adding technology and function. Overall build quality remains superior, and the cabin materials are in line with the GT’s big sticker price. It’s not very roomy inside, but the driving position is perfect, and seat comfort is exceptional. The new 12.3-inch configurable instrument display is a welcome change along with its new, larger 10.3-inch central infotainment screen. Ergonomics are also improved by the revised center console, with capacitive-touch controls for the car’s many performance settings. And as with Porsche, Mercedes has moved the GT’s drive-mode selector dial to the steering wheel where it should be. Roadsters get a power top that drops in seconds. With 10.1 cubic feet of cargo space, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT’s trunk is twice as large as the Porsche 911’s.
Infotainment upgrades include a new larger 10.3-inch central infotainment screen, which seems even bigger in the tight confines of its cockpit. However, it’s still not a touchscreen; the system’s functions are manipulated by a large knob on the console, and the interface can be a bit clumsy. A touchpad is optional, which helps. It responds to smartphone gestures such as swipe, pinch, and handwriting. Navigation is standard along with Bluetooth audio, two USB ports, a six-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability. Onboard Wi-Fi is available.
Despite their six-figure price tags, the Mercedes-AMG GT, GT C, and GT R aren’t exactly brimming with active safety-tech systems and driver aids. Front and rear cameras, automatic high-beams, parking sensors, and Mercedes-Benz’s Pre-Safe collision-avoidance system are standard. Blind-spot assist and lane-keeping assist are optional on the GT but come standard on the GT C. Adaptive cruise control is available on both models. Key safety features include:
- Standard Pre-Safe collision-avoidance system
- Available blind-spot assist
- Available lane-keeping assist
