This Darwin Pro Mercedes-AMG GT S comes from Creative Bespoke. It features a complete lightweight carbon fiber body kit, a set of ADV.1 Wheels and various other aftermarket upgrades. In turn, this makes it one of the most aggressive looking vehicles of its kind.
The Mercedes-AMG GT S Coupé is a direct successor to the much-famed AMG SLS. It features the same racing lineage, a powerful V8 engine, and impressive handling characteristics. As a result, that makes it one of the best driver’s cars money can buy. The GT S is powered by a 4.0 Liter AMG-tuned V8 bi-turbo engine delivering 522 horsepower and 495 lb-ft (670 Nm) of torque. This allows the nimble high-performance Coupé to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 3.8 seconds and accelerate all the way up to a top speed of 192 miles per hour (310 kilometers per hour).
This particular beast comes from Creative Bespoke, a specialty vehicle customization shop from Scottsdale, Arizona. Alongside an impressive selection of factory upgrades, this AMG GT S also features a fair share of aftermarket tuning bits and pieces. In turn, this makes this already highly-coveted piece of automotive excellence into a vehicle on a completely different level.
The build started off with a complete Darwin Pro GTR style carbon fiber body kit. It consists of a carbon fiber front and rear bumper replacement, followed by a carbon fiber front grille and side skirts. The most impressive carbon fiber touch is the GT rear wing. It adds a significant amount of downforce, improves handling and makes the rear end a lot more aggressive – a perfect closing argument for this body kit.
Following the carbon parts is a glass engine bonnet, revealing that monstrous V8 powerplant under the hood. While some consider this tacky, the glass bonnet follows the same design language as the same part installed, for example, a Corvette ZR1 – displaying the private parts in full view. And we definitely love that.
In the power department, Creative Bespoke didn’t leave anything to chance as well. Thanks to a custom exhaust and a custom PKG tune installed, the vehicle now delivers 100 horsepower and 100 lb-ft of torque more than the OEM tune. This means that the driver can now rely upon 622 horsepower and 595 lb-ft of torque. In turn, this allows for even better off the line performance, but also, a much-improved driving dynamics in tight cornering situations where that additional horsepower and torque come in handy. Sideaffect of this addition is a much broader, growling V8 engine sound. Not that anybody will complain.
For the final touch on this build, Creative Bespoke turned to the wheels & suspension. They’ve chosen a set of ADV15R M.V2 SuperLight Series wheels in order to put that finishing touch to this build. The wheels feature directional spoke design, they come in a two-piece configuration, showcase precise engineered & designed wheel cuts aimed at reducing weight and improve the overall visual look of the wheel. Not a surprise that the ADV15R SL’s are some of our most popular wheels.
This build features wheels machined in sizes 20×10 and 20×12 in the front and rear, respectively. These come adorned with a Polished Matte Brown finish and are milled with an Exposed Titanium Hardware option.
In order to improve both the stance and the cornering performance, the tuner also installed a set of H&R Sport Springs. These lower the vehicle to the ground and improve the handling of the vehicle in tight cornering situations. Finally, the vehicle received a Ceramic Pro paint correction and coating, allowing for that gorgeous factory Designo Hyacinth Red Metallic paint finish to shine.
