Gorden Wagener, Vice President of Design for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, is the main force behind the Mercedes AMG GT project. In fact, the sketch you see above is his personal work. So who better to talk us through the details of this design and philosophy behind it.

The designers approached Mercedes AMG GT project with the same integrity and passion they would if they were working on a one-off. As Gorden puts it: “For us, this is like creating an icon, on par with classics like the 300 SL Gullwing and the greatest sports cars of all time.”
