Replacement to the mighty SLS, the GT is not only inspired by styling from its larger predecessor it also has the same front-engine-rear-gearbox layout. Where the SLS had a more in your face exterior, its successor carries a more rounded appearance and it looks much more compact and agile. When viewed in profile the long bonnet, old race car-like glasshouse and the rounded boot section with a large overhang looks very familiar. Like the SLS, you can’t make dramatic entrances at parties though as the Gull-wing doors are replaced by conventional ones. This has also helped the AMG division keep the centre of gravity down.
