Mercedes-Benz AMG Brings Three New Cars to Gran Turismo 6

May 22nd, 2013 by Michael Leary

It’s easy to lose track of things when you’re still coming off of the sheer excitement surrounding the GT6 reveal at Silverstone last week, and it’s possible that you may have missed this interesting bit of news regarding the muscle Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division is bringing to GT6.

In addition to the SLS AMG GT3 we’ve already seen in the GT6 launch trailer, a Mercedes-Benz press release also confirms both the E63 AMG and A45 AMG will be making their first-time appearances in the game.

For a closer look at the two new vehicles making their way into GT6, check out the videos below:

The new models should be a delight to take around the track with the improvements made to the tire and suspension models, and the SLS GT3 was already present both on track at Silverstone courtesy of professional racing driver and AMG Driving Academy instructor Jan Seyffarth, and on the virtual track in the current development build of GT6.

    I hope we get both 4wd and Rwd versions of the E63 AMG

    If these cars don’t sound right it’s gonna be a waste. And like someone said below where is the c63 black 2 door??

    Kaz said this: I can say you will see a lot of interesting things come up in the months ahead.

    It’s only been a week or so since the announcement. I highly doubt that this will be the only cars we will hear about destined for GT6.

    Ok 3 new AMGs is good news. The bad news is that is only 3! Where is the following?

    1) SLS black series,
    2) C63 AMG black series
    3) The previous generation SL65 black series
    4) The current generation SL500, SL63, SL65
    5) The SLK55 AMG…..
    6) The legendary SL73 v12 amg from the ’90s

    Don’t PD think that those are essential additions? I mean what is the point of advertising “more than 1200” cars if you miss all or even some of those cars?

    I mean if ever there was a german car that embodied the definition of “Gran Turismo” it was and still is the SL.

      there could be more to come. We can still hope.

    Off topic but I hope a ford f150 or a raptor version is premium. That would be fun on toscana and chamonix

    Nice to see some new Mercedes cars, the SLS GT3 looks great, but the C63 coupe would be better than the big heavy E63.

    • May. 23, 8:10am

      They still have the c63. They just added the E63

    • May. 23, 10:56am

      C63 Black would be even better. The E63 is still a freaking awesome machine though!!! :D

    • May. 23, 10:58am

      Yes of course, I wrote that the C coupé looks so much better than the one (4 doors) already avaliable in GT5 :)

    Beautiful beautiful cars!

    PD must make a note on how these AMG’s ACTUALLY sound, notice the burble when changing gears? The ACTUAL AMG V8 brute sound? Please for the love of my own sanity and for justice to AMG for making those V8’s , do it right!

    BTW wheres the C63 AMG Black??? sigh.

  10. May. 23, 3:30am

    I like how PD are focusing less time on Japanese manufacturers this time, but I seriously hope they have a premium version of the Toyota Supra!

    • May. 23, 5:08am
      RobDoggy05

      So you didn’t notice how the whole GT6 reveal was surrounded by Nissan :P
      And we have only seen +- 15 new cars for GT6 out of the how many new ones? 200?

      And yes I would love to see a premium Supra but only if the 2JZ sounds like the 2JZ.

    I am still hoping that this means more GT3 cars, a Livery editor would be icing on the cake. Maybe I am just still cooling down from the Nur 24.

    • May. 23, 12:33am
      Amac500

      Lol, you may still be cooling down but the race it’s self had a good 10 hour cool down

    • May. 23, 12:56am
      Sixflags48

      Really is a shame, I love seeing the cars racing while the sun is rising. Also a shame that the GT5 Nur 24 is for LMP cars, I’d go for some hard GT racing in GT

    • May. 23, 4:56am
      CyborgGT

      “I’d go for some hard GT racing in GT.” What we need is a race mode that allows you to set custom parameters for opponents, while still being able to win credits (amount based on PP or something). It is just a video game after all, give us ways to earn good spending money without having to go online. What few career races we get, especially with the limited entry requirements, get stale quick. The endurance races I would love to do in GT cars – or better yet, normal cars that I have built up and customized myself to compete at that level. Give us some challenging (but winnable) races to give us some sense of reward and pride for building our own race cars. Or maybe I want to compete in a cup race in a field of only Fairlady Zs, or have a shootout with a group of very different cars that I’ve built to similar specs.

      On topic: It is indeed great that GT is adding more non-Japanese cars, but sorry I’m not a Merc fan. The only Premium models I want from that brand are the 190 E Cosworth and the original CLK Black Series. But just in general, this game needs more significant American and European Premiums. This coming from a primarily Japanese car fan.

    PD, please have Cadillac V-series machines in the GT6. The CTS-V sedan/coupe/wagon and the ATS and ATS-V would all be great, rwd, modern American muscle cars, in addition to the new 5.0 Mustang, Corvette, and Camaro.

    • May. 22, 11:22pm
      DITCHLINE

      good luck getting the caddy CTS-V I dont think one has ever been in the game although it would be sweet alone with the new Z28 concept but Im not holding my breath, Hopefully a list of all the cars will show up somewhere I’m hoping to see a 70 Roadrunner,69 GTO,& something from Linginfelter

    • May. 22, 11:42pm
      DYLAN777-is-not

      I was just going to say that! I was going to say how the only high performance luxory car I would ever want is the Cadillac ctsv etc. The Mercedes may be altogether better but the Cadi aint bad plus it looks 10x better and its American and its a Cadillac. Ive never enjoyed how Mercedes cars look. The gull wing is the only exception, its a good looking car. And yes I also agree we need the new awesome muscle cars the ZL1, more mustangs, some original muscle cars like the judge, roadrunner, dodge dart, the firebird, the nova

    • May. 23, 12:36am
      Amac500

      The ATS is an absolutely fantastic car, and you can take my word for that. That magnetic suspension of Cadillac’s at work in a sporty little car in the same category as the new BMW M4, good stuff. Keep in mind, this is the suspension system so good that Ferrari had Cadillac develop it for the 458 Italia.

    • May. 23, 3:52pm
      Craze63AMG

      @DITCHLINE, the first gen CTS-V was in Need for Speed Most Wanted, Need for Speed Undercover, NFS Prostreet, Forza 2, Forza 3, and Forza 4, while the 2nd Generation is in NFS World, Forza 4, and the Coupe is also in Forza 4 and Forza Horizon. I think there’s a good chance we’ll see the -V somehow.

  18. May. 22, 10:12pm
    HuskyGT

    Another AMG that would go well with Gran Turismo’s way of doing things would be the SLS AMG Electric Drive. Yes, it’s electric, but that thing has more than 700hp and around 1000 foot-pounds of torque. That thing is a beast.

    • May. 22, 10:27pm

      would be great to have a few electric cars that can really compete with petrol powered cars.. well the tesla model s is a good start..

    Speaking of adding cars, I would really like to see some Gran Turismo classics return to this game, like the Dodge Intrepid or the Alcyone. :)

    • May. 22, 10:15pm
      HuskyGT

      The Intrepid is such an ugly car, but it looked so damn cool back in the 90’s. I remember it almost looked like the Viper, but with 4 doors. I would love to see those cars from GT2 back too. The old Neon RT and the Avenger too (The Avenger was in GT2? I think it was).

    • May. 22, 10:27pm
      Fire Yoshi

      The Avenger was, yes.
      Eh, it’s not a looker, but I actually like the Intrepid. lol It was considered sports luxury for average citizens back in the 90s.

    • May. 22, 11:13pm
      HuskyGT

      And lets not forget the Intrepid made the Cab Forward design popular due to how functional it was. That design is what probably made it look a bit weird.

    I wonder if they’ve gotten a NASCAR license. So far they’ve been silent on the matter, so I guess that means “no.”

    • May. 23, 12:37am
      Amac500

      I wouldn’t say that. They just announced the game and haven’t said anything about how racing series will be included.

    • May. 23, 2:16am
      TomBrady

      Actually they said they will have all the same cars from GT5 plus a bunch of new ones so yes, NASCAR is in. But what use is it wiith such a small amount of ovals. UNLESS, the course maker will allow for making ovals, that would be great

      Dude you’re kidding about a Nissan Skyline right? This will be Gran Turismo 6. Kas and PD are so in love with the Skyline they would marry one if it was legal in Japan. There shall be Skylines so I’m hoping you’re just kidding.

      The E30 is great, but I prefer the E36. Nothing like an old inline 6 BMW coupe. And the E21 323i too!! Oh, and what about the 8 series that we had in GT2. It was the 840ci, I believe.

      Okay, I’ll stop here. It’s like “GT5-before-release” all over XD

      If they sound like GT5’s AMG’s then they won’t sound like butt. They will sound like V8 machines, which is perfect.

      GT5 had their bases covered on modern Ferraris, but was lacking in the classics. We only had the 512BB & the 330 P4. We need a 250 GTO, 250 Testarossa, Daytona, & a 308 GTS. We already have the Dino confirmed, so there is still hope!

      Not being up on my knowledge of race tracks, I was wondering what that track was! Thank you, Quintino3, for knowing it and posting it!

      The same thought was going through my head – will that track be a part of GT6? Well, from what I’ve read so far, my guess is not straight away… It may come to us via DLC though! Either way, it looks like a good track and should definitely be in GT6!

    I love that gt6 has GT3 race cars! I’ve been saying for a while that what we needed were more European GT race cars because they are the core of the GT racing land scale, and the SLS AMG was one of the 6 models I said they needed, so I’m thrilled! Plus we got the R8 LMS Ultra, so I can cross that one off my list to. All I have left now is the BMW Z4, McLaren MP4-12C, Aston Martin Vantage, and of course the big one, the Ferrari 458!

    • May. 22, 8:20pm
      chevyisthebest

      didn’t gt5 have the 458,mp4, and the vantage!?!?!?!(if ur not talkin about gt6 needing to have those)

    • May. 22, 8:33pm
      sepulturite

      He means the gt3 versions of the cars…….would’ve thought that was fairly obvious since that’s what he was talking about

    • May. 22, 9:53pm
      BLADErunner80

      Agreed I think we need at least 6 modern GT3 Spec race cars in GT6, then we could have a great race series with what we heard about online race championships in GT6.
      Looking good so far with the AMG SLS and the R8 LMS Ultra, but really hope the 458, MP4-12C, DB9 and maybe BMW Z4 or even the Gallardo could be added in GT3 Spec versions.

      And even a basic livery creator such as the one in the 1st Grid game could help a lot to make a limited choice of GT3 cars less problematic.

    • May. 22, 10:37pm
      PinappleJuice

      There are rumors that the Aston Vantage GT3 will be in the game. I’m not sure if it is true, so don’t take my word for it.

    I would better see old AMG mercedes :) those machines are crazy, these new ones dont have soul, and they look the same to me, all of them.. but still, I will drive and enjoy them I know that, I will never own AMG in real life, so why not :)

    • May. 22, 4:19pm
      HuskyGT

      Yeah, alhtough I love all this, I hope PD gives more attention to old sports cars too. Not like classics, but like 90’s and early 2000’s models. If not in GT6 through DLC, at least in GT7.

      Imagine having the AMG SL73 from the 90’s, or a Premium 190E Evo. An AMG C36 from the 90’s would be amazing as well.

      But these are good for now.

    Does mercedes make vacuum cleaners now??

    • May. 22, 2:32pm
      BWX

      No but I am sure there will be lots and lots of dyno whine coming through the so called “engine sound” in GT6. That’s why all the cars have a similar “vacuum cleaner” sound in GT5, they record the engine sounds on a dyno, and a dyno makes a LOT of noise, and the sound it makes sounds like a giant vacuum cleaner in GT5. They just need to figure out a way to get that sound out of the game, or record the engines, I dunno, on a TRACK maybe? They make enough money to do that.

    • May. 22, 3:41pm

      yeah I loved GT5 but Kaz & PD need to spend more effort & money to record better sounds. whenever I play fm4, forza horizon or nfs mw2, I always tell myself that ‘I wish GT5 had this sort of engine sounds’. I especially love the howling v10 engine of Gallardo. but most shocking fact is that Kaz’s beloved Nissan GT-R sounds like the real thing (with the exhaust upgrades) on those 3 games but not in GT5.

      Just do what NFS does…put some mics near the exhaust(s) and go nuts on an airstrip. They did that for NFS most wanted 2012 and the sounds are pretty accurate…better than Forza!

      get a rolling road, with the dyno not connected somehow and have a little resistance on it so the cars can be under load conditions so the cars can be stationary and be given a chance with no external sounds. Surely it something could of been done, but nothing has xhanged, they never learn from anything…

      Are you sure? the AMG C63, SLS, SL55, SLR and SLS sounded perfect in GT5. I don’t see why PD would screw them up.

      Enough with the vacuum cleaner jokes. You guys must be deaf…

    • May. 22, 3:29pm
      Magic Ayrton

      The sls in GT5 sounds fantastic through a decent 5.1 sound system. The other cars such as Honda NSX and Nissan 300ZX (which incidentally sounded far better in Gran Turismo 3) sound rubbish and that’s being kind… so where is the consistency??

    • May. 22, 4:23pm
      HuskyGT

      Consistency is a huge issue with PD. There are examples of cars that sounded great previously and then they screwed on the sound. The most mind-boggling example would be the Saleen S7. It started sounding like a V8 (that generic racing V8. V8 nevertheless) and then they changed it in a patch, giving it a completely unidentifiable sound.

      In fact, all of the cars we had to pay for should be made transferable!

      Car packs 1, 2 & 3, the stealth cars, the GTAcademy cars and those special pre-order ones (which I didn’t get because I didn’t pre-order my copy of GT5)!

    GTPlanet staff, if and when you get the data and opportunity, could we get a sample of the engine sounds that will be produced in GT6.

    I myself am positively optimistic they’ll be better. Others, not so much.

    The consistent almost daily updates concerning GT6s progress that have been provided by the GTPlanet Members and the staff have been greatly appreciated, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Coincedentally I found out Famines actual first name while browsing another gaming forum, where the editor was giving him kudos for the outstanding work that he does here on the Planet. I’ll keep it to myself.

      Japanese, European, American – seen it all before in nearly every racing game on the planet!

      What I want is some of the old AND new Australian muscle! You hear that, AUSTRALIAN muscle?!

      For example, Holden’s concept car – Efijy, some of the old Holden Monaro models – HG, HT, HJ, HK, HQ, some of the old Holden Torana models – LC, LJ, A9X SLR5000, the last of the Monaro’s made in 2006 (including the Coupe4 and the Coupe60), the VB, VK, VL, VT, VY and VE Commodore’s AND all models (& liveries) of Holdens that raced at Bathurst!

      Then there’s the Australian Fords – 1971’s XY GT-HO Phase III (the fastest 4 door sedan in the world in 1971) – XA, XB, XC Falcon from the 1070’s (including the XC Cobra), the XD, XE and XF from the 1980’s, the EA from the 1990’s, the BA from the 2000’s, the current G series Falcon AND all models (& liveries) of Fords that raced at Bathurst!

      THEN, we have the special department cars – HSV (Holden Special Vehicles), HDT (Holden Dealer Team), HRT (Holden Racing Team), FPV (Ford Performance Vehicles) and FPR (Ford Performance Racing)!!!

    • May. 22, 1:12pm

    I do miss a lot of the race car models in GT5/6 .. and maybe it’s my self to blame for some of the missed ones. I don’t do Drifting, haven’t done much B-spec and i haven’t got so much time for driving in general.. But again I can’t seem to find any info of the ones i’m thinking off :o)

    Like:
    Aston Martins.
    Audi.
    Mercedes.

    I don’t mind that the Game has got a lot of the street Cars, so Maybe i just miss some long sunday driving tracks for it, of course lots of the real world racing tracks, are open for racing with your own normal car, in the off times, and that’s cool.

    But I’m in this for the racing, with race cars, Now some cars can be rebuild to be a Race Car, but it’s only a few..

    That’s why i’m always talking about other Race games .. I Love GT and i’m also Bored with it . But i guess that’s the real thing Love’N’Hate relationship Hehe..

    I’m Looking forward too the GT6 Demo, bcs Silverstone has been long missed in GT..

      if PD would just throw the Holdens, Fords, Nissans (rolls eyes), and the Mercs from V8 Supercars, give them a nice blank canvas Race-Mod for each, and a decent Livery Editor… People all over the world, not just in Oz, would flip their Sh**.

    • May. 22, 1:35pm
      ScotteDawg

      PD sent out guys to map Mt Panorama early last year, but it probably won’t be in the game off the shelf. It will most likely be a DLC, along with Commodore’s, Falcon’s, Altima’s and Erebus Mercedes’! Once we buy the DLC and the car is in our garage, we “purchase” the car and take it to GT Auto to get the livery applied – 7 each available for Holden and Ford, 4 for Nissan and 2 for Mercedes! (I’m only speculating – don’t hold me to this! But, if you think about it, it makes sense!)

      As with the NASCAR’s in GT5, I hope they up-date the V8 Supercars on a yearly basis, though, they DID miss the past two years with the NASCAR’s, but you get my drift?

    • May. 22, 1:45pm
      ScotteDawg

      Oh, another bit of speculation I forgot was the size of the rooms online or the size of the grid offline.

      With all this new stuff they’re putting in and the power of the new generation model etcetera, online rooms may go up to 20 and offline grids maybe up to 24…

      Again, don’t hold me to this!

      PS. I’d like to see some old Aussie muscle (Holden, Ford and Chrysler) and some you beaut utes (all with race mods available)!
