All lights on green: start of production of the new Mercedes-AMG GT in Sindelfingen

The production of the facelifted Mercedes-AMG GT model has begun at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Sindelfingen. Michael Bauer (2nd from right), Head of Production of the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant and Site Manager, and Ergun Lümali (front right), Chairman of the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen Works Council, celebrated the first vehicle – a Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO (fuel consumption combined 12.4 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 284 g/km)[1] – together with the production team. The high-end sports cars in the two-door Coupé and Roadster variants of the Mercedes-AMG GT family and the limited edition of the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO are produced with a hand-built character by specially trained staff.

“The start of production of the revamped Mercedes-AMG GT sports cars shows once again that the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant is not only a manufacturer of top-quality volume-produced vehicles. This way, we are able to keep expanding our scope of expertise. With our highly motivated and experienced team we are in a position to meet our customers’ wishes for highly exclusive vehicles such as the Mercedes-AMG GT. We are rightly proud of that,” says Michael Bauer, Head of Production of the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant and Site Manager.

“Our production of the Mercedes-AMG GT demonstrates once again that we have a highly qualified workforce at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant which is dedicated to producing vehicles to the very highest standards of quality. Within the competence centre for luxury vehicles of Mercedes-Benz in Sindelfingen, the production of the Mercedes-AMG GT as a top sports car clearly plays a special role. As members of the Works Council, we are pleased that the production of the Mercedes-AMG GT is helping to secure jobs,” says Ergun Lümali, Chairman of the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen Works Council.

The production of the Mercedes-AMG GT series, which was developed in Affalterbach, involves a high degree of top-quality hand finishing at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant. Fabric top, carbon-fibre or glass roof, standard equipment or exclusive customised options: the employees at the respective stations are all prepared for assembling and fitting each of these variants. The components are supplied to the highly flexible production line as ‘packages’ tailored to the specific vehicle concerned.

The facelift lends the two-door Mercedes-AMG GT family an additional edge, with updates on the exterior and more agile performance and handling courtesy of integrated AMG DYNAMICS handling control, the new AMG Performance steering wheel, a centre console with innovative display buttons and a fully digital instrument display, for example. The AMG GT R PRO limited edition has been modified in numerous points of detail for even better racetrack performance. These modifications include a new suspension and the optimised power/weight ratio, which benefits from lightweight bucket seats and lightweight wheels. The aerodynamics have also undergone further fine-tuning.
