The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe and Roadster will arrive at U.S. dealers in early 2021 with a healthy power upgrade.
Their handcrafted 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 boasts 54 more horsepower than before, producing a total of 523 HP (530 PS) at 5,500 – 6,750 rpm. Peak torque also sees an increase of 29 lb-ft (39 Nm), reaching 494 lb-ft (669 Nm) between 2,100 – 5,250 rpm.
As a result, the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time is cut by 0.2 seconds to 3.7 seconds and top speed increases to 194 mph (312 km/h) for the Coupe and 193 mph (311 km/h) for the Roadster.

Customers who want an even more special AMG GT can spec the 2021 model with the new “Stealth Edition”. Available on both body styles, the package brings a more sinister appearance inside and out. On the outside, the Stealth Edition sports the AMG Exterior Night Package, headlamps with black elements, AMG radiator grille in dark chrome, black brake calipers and mixed-size tires mounted on 19-inch matte black Y-spoke wheels up front and 20-inch ones at the rear.
Also on the menu are a carbon fiber roof with dark-tinted areas on the Coupe and a black soft top on the Roadster. A black body color is standard, but customers can also opt for obsidian black metallic, selenite grey metallic or designo graphite grey magno.
Inside, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Stealth Edition gains the AMG Interior Night Package, AMG Performance seats upholstered in Exclusive Nappa Style leather in black with diamond quilting, as well as AMG steering wheel in Dinamica microfiber with black spokes and shift paddles.
