While Mercedes-Benz India boss has confirmed the model may come to India soon, Mercedes and AMG have announced a Black Series version of the recently introduced AMG GT.
At the Paris Motor Show, AMG boss Tobias Moers confirmed that the AMG GT will be available in Mercedes-Benz’s lineup for 7-8 years and that it will be offered in a few additional variants. Talking to EVO at the Paris Motor Show, he also confirmed a Black Series derivative is in the pipeline but refused to specify an approximate launch date.
Before the top-of-the-line Black Series, the AMG GT will get other versions. According to EVO the first one to reach the production line will probably be an open-top model expected to come out sometime in 2015. This estimation contradicts a report issued by Car & Driver saying that although the AMG GT Roadster is “virtually complete”, the model won’t be given a green light for production because Mercedes-Benz is afraid such a model would cannibalize sales of other open-air models.
