Santa Barbara Auto Group Mercedes-Benz offers several models from Mercedes-Benz highly acclaimed AMG series

Mercedes-Benz has re-engineered the AMG series to be more fuel-efficient and less expensive without diminishing the vehicle’s thrilling power. Referring to the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Cabriolet as the ‘AMG-lite’, Motor Trend claims, “It is the same AMG flavor, just fewer calories.” The AMG series has made a reputation for equipping luxury vehicles with powerful engines and sportier suspensions to create a high performance driving experience. With recent innovations to the AMG engine, Mercedes-Benz has managed to retain the high performance experience while improving overall efficiency. The experts at Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara are eager to educate customers about the new engine model and all the benefits of driving a 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG.

Performance raises the 2018 AMG GT Cabriolet to new heights

The engine design for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Cabriolet is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that has been tweaked to provide 550 horsepower. Mercedes’ engineers achieved this balance by adding two large turbochargers and implementing their new engine management software that allows greater boost pressures than ever before. Efficiency is further enhanced using a seven-speed automatic transmission specifically designed to deliver faster shifts, and an air suspension intended for crisp handling and a firm grip on the road. The AMG GT Cabriolet is the first of a new breed for the AMG series. Mercedes has successfully found the middle ground between the high performance thrills delivered by previous AMG vehicles and the luxurious experience most Mercedes-Benz models offer.

Tech and luxury features craft your driving experience in the 2018 AMG GT Cabriolet

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Cabriolet allows drivers the ability to customize their drive mode in order to better suit the terrain and conditions using Mercedes-Benz’s Dynamic Select drive mode function. The Dynamic Select system offers several different modes for drivers including comfort, sport, sport+, Eco, and an option to customize different components to operate on different modes. For instance, setting the powertrain and the suspension to Sport mode and steering to Comfort mode will provide the smoothest and most efficient ride for most driving conditions.

The 2019 Mercedes AMG Project One Hypercar at a Glimpse

2018-02-27T08:42:12+00:00February 27th, 2018|Concept Vehicles, Mercedes Benz|

Mercedes leaps beyond the box with the amazing 2019 AMG Project One

One step away from racecar status, the 2019 Mercedes AMG Project One hypercar offers a system output of more than 1,000 horsepower. The robust ride has a 1.6-litre hybrid gasoline engine with direct injection and electrically assisted single turbocharging capability. The essence of this powerhouse is that of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 racecar. Mercedes boasts that this rocket roadster hits top speed at and beyond 217 mph and offers a throttle response superior to a V8. The AMG Project One bolts from zero to 124 mph in less than six seconds. Scaling the Santa Barbara coastline comes easy in this robust masterpiece. The additional boost offered in this high-revving engine performance is due to the advanced turbocharger inside this masculine ride. This system compliments the over-the-top acceleration speed and torque vectoring. The high-voltage EQ Power+ drive system functions with 800 volts. The normal voltage is 400 volts, which AMG suggests that it saves on space and weight. Also, this hybrid vehicle will be able to drive completely in EV mode or solely on its battery for more than 15 miles, which means it can drive emissions free driving. This unique design has three driving modes with the ESP. This includes an all-electric mode and a furious track mode for an aggressive flare that speaks to its sports car roots. For more information about the all-new 2019 AMG Project One stop in at Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara and ask one of our brand-trained representatives who will be happy to serve you.

The exterior design matches the excellence of its engine in the 2019 AMG Project One

The exterior hood features a three-tiered scoop, while the front bumper is lined by two substantial air inlets. The LED headlights embedded into the front body add to the mere sleek perfection in this masculine beauty. The intricate level of design is evident in the scoops that are aimed to guide airflow around the sides of the car. Also included is a front splitter that automatically adjusts to aid in the downforce along with active ventilation louvres located in the front wheel arches. To maximize this incredible appearance is mammoth air intakes and sculpted lines along with the Petronas green color scheme, which was originated by the artist who designed the Formula 1 racecar. To learn more about this amazing roadster and others, call or visit Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara and see all that we have to offer.
