Eye Candy: 2016 Darwin Pro Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS

Who needs a pretty red Ferrari when you can have this modified 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS? The AMG GTS serves as a direct successor to the AMG SLS and pays homage to the classic 300SL gullwing. This particular car features a lightweight carbon fiber body kit and various aftermarket upgrades which makes this one of the most aggressive looking vehicles of its kind.

From the factory, the car comes with a 4.0-Liter AMG-tuned V8 bi-turbo engine rated with 500 horsepower; however, that wasn’t enough for the Scottsdale-based tuners at Creative Bespoke who gave it a PKG tune and custom exhaust system to deliver 613 horsepower.

Regarding design, I find the GTS to be stunning. It comes adorned with a complete carbon fiber body kit designated by Darwin Pro GTR. The kit is made of an entirely new front and rear bumper, a menacing front grille and hefty side skirts. Even the car’s badge is crafted out of carbon fiber.

The hood includes a glass cover to feature the car’s bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine.

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.

Adorning the body is standard Designo Hyacinth Red Metallic paint protected by Ceramic Pro.

Finally, the AMG GTS gets its stance sitting on a set of 20-inch polished Matte Brown ADV.1 wheels coupled with H&R sports springs.
