Mercedes-AMG GT V8 4-Door returns: new look, suspension update

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 and GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe have returned from their unanticipated hiatus sporting some aesthetic updates and revisions to their standard air suspensions. The V8-powered GTs now share a nose with the assortment-topping E-Effectiveness hybrid design. 

New wheel models are remaining made available alongside a couple of further hues, and some of the exterior deals have been current. Most notably, the Night and Carbon Fiber deals can now be ordered on the similar car. Inside, additional coloration combos are accessible — including on the steering wheel — and supplemental trim decisions (this kind of as open-pore wood) are the principal additions to the GT’s configurator. 

The updates aren’t strictly visible. AMG’s engineers added a next strain restricting valve to the V8 model’s common air suspension. One valve controls the rebound and the other controls the compression in the previous design, both of those had been controlled by a single valve. Called AMG Journey Regulate+, this technologies also keeps entire body roll in check.

“This technological innovation helps make it doable to improve comfort and ease on the one hand, but on the other also to make the driving dynamics even sportier. As a end result, passengers are virtually fully shielded from uneven street surfaces,” Mercedes explained in its announcement.

If this all appears familiar, do not fear, you might be not ridiculous. Mercedes in fact introduced the suspension upgrades very last calendar year together with some updates to the 6-cylinder GT. Given that the V8 GT took a yr off, we’re finding them for 2023 instead.
