5 Features Of The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT By Luethen Motorsport
To say that the Mercedes-AMG GT has been a hit in the sports car segment seems to be an understatement. Since its release, various tuning kits have been made available for the performance vehicle, particularly by Brabus, Mansory and Wheelsandmore.
You can now add Luethen Motorsport on the list of your top tuning packages for the Mercedes-AMG GT. Here are the top five features of this Luethen Motorsport-tuned Mercedes-AMG GT:
Luethen Motorsport gave the Mercedes-AMG GT a carbon fiber aerodynamic kit that includes a new front spoiler lip with an integrated splitter and a few winglets. There’s also an adjustable rear wing, underbody diffuser, a set of side sills, and 20-inch Series-1 forged alloy wheels in Pilot Super Sport tires.
There are no interior upgrades from Luethen Motorsport, much like RevoZport and Dime Racing. Exceptions are Brabus and Mansory, the latter included carbon-fiber door sills, matte-anodised pedals and aluminum paddle shifters in their kits.
Luethen provided software modification on the Mercedes-AMG GT V-8 engine control unit. That tweaking led to an increased production of 612 horsepower and 576 pound-feet of torque—the same results from the likes of Brabus with its 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. By remapping the ECU, however, RevoZport managed to increase it to 650 horsepower, plus the addition of free-flow intake system and a new titanium exhaust.
There is no info yet on how much Luethen Motorsport is charging for its tuned Mercedes-AMG GT, but similar kits can go as much as $50,000 for the program.
This tuned version of the Mercedes-AMG GT is going against the tuning kits for Mercedes-AMG GT S 6.3 Startrack By Wheelsandmore and the Mercedes-AMG GT S RSR By Piecha Design.
