’15 SRT Challenger
Mercedes AMG GT
The pros at KGP Photography snapped these shots of the ’15 SRT Challenger, revealing an interior overhaul that includes a new dash, switchgear, instrumentation and a quality level.
Additional changes on this prototype include a larger 8.4-in. Uconnect LCD screen—now framed with new vertical air vents—an all-new center stack located aft of the manual transmission, and a gauge cluster with new instrumentation that appears to be an improvement over the simpler design found in the current model.
Earlier prototypes had minor camouflage covering the front clip, with the existing grille and headlight setup visible behind the disguise. The new camouflage is much more extensive, with visible changes to the front fascia. LED accents can be seen ringing the Challenger’s new headlights, and the outer LED ring also includes amber turn signals, which were spotted but could not be photographed.
KGP Photography caught this thinly covered prototype of the upcoming Mercedes AMG GT on film in the snow. The AMG GT is set to compete with the Porsche 911, according to the photographers, and their latest look offers a vision of the compelling design lurking beneath the swirled camouflage.
KGP has heard rumors that there are likely three variations for the AMG GT: a base model sporting a 4.0L V8 engine good for 485 hp; an uprated offering with 505 hp; and a Black Series variant that is expected to approach 600 hp.
Unlike previous AMG GT prototypes photographed by KGP Photography, this latest version has ditched the heavier plastic and vinyl covering and opted for a more revealing, body-hugging graphic wrap. The first two models will be distinguished by different exhaust setups—a dual-exhaust configuration and a quad-exhaust design, both of which are smoothly integrated into the rear bumper. The Black Series may get more extreme styling differences, similar to what is seen on the Mercedes SLS.
