The recently unveiled Mercedes-AMG GT is set to receive two new styling packages, designed to enhance the aesthetic value of the car should potential owners find the normal one a little bit too bland on the eyes. Following the Night package, the Silver Chrome and Carbon styling packs are now available.

It consists of a restyled front splitter, a redesigned rear diffuser, new wing mirrors and fender fins. As their respective names suggests, the Silver Chrome package has all the bits listed above in chrome while the Carbon package has them dressed up in carbon-fibre.

Both the styling packages are on offer for the car in its basic spec as well as the more powerful ‘S’ variant. A quick reminder on the specifications, the normal variant is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0 litre V8 unit with 456 hp at 6,000 rpm and kicks out 600 Nm of torque from 1,600 rpm to 5,000 rpm.

As for the ‘S’ version, the same engine produces 503 hp at 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm of torque from 1,700 rpm to 4,750 rpm. The 0-100 km/h sprint is completed in 3.8 seconds with the less powerful variant stopping the clock in 4.0 seconds. Drive goes to the rear via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission in both models.
