The Mercedes AMG GT supercar was launched at the AMG headquarters after several months of testing and anticipation.

This supercar is powered by an all-new twin-turbocharged V8 engine hooked up to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The engine is available in two configurations -- the GT engine has a zero to 100 km/h spring time of 4 seconds, while the GT S makes the grade in just 3.28 seconds. As far as speed is concerned, the GT is limited to 304 km/h while the GT S is capable of hitting 310 km/h.

The AMG GT supercar allows for extremely agile handling thanks to its front-rear weight distribution and its low center of gravity. It is also built using an aluminum frame, keeping its weight down to 1,540 kg.

Mercedes hasn't revealed when the car will be on sale, but will begin taking orders early next year.
