Mercedes AMG GTS Edition 1
After deciding that my next car will be a Mercedes AMG GTS, I need to find the right one. Mercedes-Benz Milton Keynes had three for sale, so I took a drive down to the dealership. They had Solarbeam Yellow, Brilliant Blue and Black GTS’s, but none of them met my requirements as far as additional options and colour.
After some further research, I established that when Mercedes launched the AMG GT they also launched a limited-edition model called the Mercedes AMG GTS ‘Edition 1’. What made the Edition 1 so special is the additional features that came as standard with the car:
There were a small number of additional items that could be specified including the car colour, different wheels, AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package and Carbon Ceramic Brakes.
The AMG DYMANIC PLUS package ensures even better driving dynamics and even sportier driving characteristics. As well as dynamic engine and transmission mounts, it also provides a more rigid sports suspension, specific steering tuning and a specific engine application that is available in the "RACE" drive program and in manual mode "M".
The result: even better response with optimised driving characteristics.by Mercedes AMG
In the UK there were 51 Edition 1 cars registered, I surmise that 50 were customer cars and 1 was to be kept by Mercedes-Benz UK as a press car. Most Edition 1 car adverts I have seen have quoted that there are only 35 Edition 1 AMG GTS’s in the UK.
To me the aero kit looks great with the fixed rear wing making the car look more aggressive than the standard flip up spoiler. The interior looks amazing too with race seats with their red accents, the red seatbelts and black centre console.
So now I need to try and find and AMG GTS ‘Edition 1’. I preferable want a car with the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package which includes dynamic engine and transmission mounts as well as a special set up in Race mode which increase both the maximum output and maximum torque across a wider engine speed range.
