Exact Description of this Specific Motorcar
This fabulous motorcar was supplied by Mercedes Benz Norwich to a Mr Kenth who covered approximately 4900 miles in the car. The car was ordered in June 2017 by Mr Kenth via Mercedes Benz Norwich for a list price of £144,119.25. The car left the factory on 10th August 2017 and was then subsequentially delivered to him on 23rd August 2017
This is an early example of the GT-C. Over its six year life, no expense has been spared to make sure it’s in perfect condition, and there are receipts to back that up. It’s been well loved, and driven sparingly over its life, which means it’s all the more ready for further adventures. This car has been sat in a collection of over 200 cars since 2017 and has hence had little or no use. The car is presented is as new condition. The paint work is faultless and the interior is unmarked.
The car has been maintained at no expense spared by Mercedes Benz.

General description of Make and/or Model of this Motorcar:
First introduced in 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT was something of a follow up to the SLS AMG supercar. A less exclusive proposition than its predecessor, it acted as a halo car for the German brand, mixing AMG’s fearsome engineering prowess, with everyday Mercedes usability. Powered by a 4.0-litre twin turbo ‘hot vee’ V8 paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, it delivered incredible performance, even in its base spec, which came with 503bhp and 480lb ft.
The first iteration GT was an imposing car to look at, but it hides hallmarks and cues from older Mercedes sportscars - its wide grille is reminiscent of the 300SL, and its long nose is a neat nod not only to the SLS, but also its SL stablemate.
In 2017 the GT got a facelift and a raft of new models. Its new front end treatment featured a Panamericana grille reminiscent of competition-spec 300SLs from the 50s, and added more visual drama to the car. The new models that joined the lineup were varied, and, in some cases enough to worry the likes of a Porsche GT car. 2017’s GT R came with 577bhp and 516lb ft, which was enough to get it from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds and up to 198mph, though its main aim isn’t straight line performance, instead going for the quickest lap times possible. To achieve that goal, Mercedes fitted it with adjustable coil over suspension to work alongside AMG Ride Control, a manually adjustable rear wing, a nine-stage traction control system, active underbody aero, and aero-friendly aggressive styling. The changes added up, and the car became the fifth quickest production vehicle to lap the Nurburgring at the time.
A Later GT R Pro added to the GT R’s prowess. Though it had the same power as the R, its mechanical set up was more aggressive, and weight was cut wherever possible. It achieved an even faster Nurburgring lap time. For those who found the GT R Pro a little soft, 2021’s GT Black Series put the power up to 720bhp, gave the car unique and adjustable suspension, fresh carbon brakes, an active wing that contributes to the car’s 400kg peak downforce, more carbon fibre in its body than most people will see in a lifetime, and much more besides - it, in November 2020 became the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring.
Away from the track, 2017 also saw the introduction of the GT C. Sitting just below the R, as a more exciting roadgoing proposition, it came with 550bhp and 502lb ft, as well as an electrically controlled limited slip differential, a race mode, a race start (for people with understanding neighbours), a performance exhaust, AMG Ride Control adaptive suspension, wider body than the cars that preceded it in the lineup, active rear steering, and looks to die for. A soft top was also available, though the coupé’s looks are hard to beat. Those looks are partially down to it borrowing the 57mm wider rear track and beefier body from the track-ready R. You needn’t worry about its performance, It’ll dispatch 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds before thundering up to 197mph. It offers a mix of comfortable cruising and quite incredible handling, all matched up to a sonorous V8 soundtrack - a real standout in an already impressive line up.
