Mercedes is giving us a preview of the interior of the all new AMG GT, which will likely debut at the 2014 Paris motor show.
Following the SLS AMG, the new GT is the second sports car developed independently by Mercedes-AMG. This initial look at the interior provides an alluring foretaste of the new emotional form language and authentic material use the company has employed under the direction of Design VP Gorden Wagener.
The central ‘aviation design’ theme typical of Mercedes-Benz sports cars is again the dominant aspect of the cockpit, where the width of the cabin is accentuated through the wing-like form of the IP. This effect is supported by the four central spotlight-style vents and the individual vents at the left and right ends of the dash.
The dominant center console presents a correspondingly dynamic character: its shaping reminiscent of a NACA air intake and the employed materials suggest that it has been adopted directly from motor racing. Another clever design feature comes in the form of the controls on the AMG Drive Unit, which are arranged like eight cylinders in a V layout, further bolstering the high-tech impression made by the center console.
