As for the options and equipment, every GT comes with 19 inch wheels, limited slip differential, a switchable AMG performance exhaust, COMAND Online (complete with an 8.4-inch screen), AMG sports suspension and an adjustable electronic rear wing. The GT S meanwhile adds 20 inch rear wheels, red brake callipers clamping enlarged discs, an electronically-controlled rear differential, and AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with three selectable modes.
