Prior Design drops Mercedes-AMG GT PD700GTR wide body

Renown aerodynamic specialist Prior Design has impressed us with yet another wide body conversion. Not satisfied with the previous PDT800GT package for the Mercedes-AMG GT, the German tuner has released a second wide body kit for the AMG flagship.

Called the PD700GTR, the new body kit consists of extended wheel fenders for the front and rear axles, front and rear aprons and deeper side skirts. The front has been further dressed with a splitter, while the rear gains a diffuser and fixed spoiler. If you are willing to part with enough money, Prior Design will even manufacture the bodykit entirely out of carbon fibre.

A new set of wheels is essential for such enlarged wheel arches and the AMG GT hunkers down on forged Prior Design PD3Forged wheels with five double spokes. The rolling stock measures 9.5 × 20 at the front and 12.5 × 21 inches at the rear, with Continental tyres in sizes of 245/30 ZR20 and 305/25 ZR21 providing the final contact with the tarmac.

Also available from the tuner are plenty of carbon trim for the cockpit, a new exhaust system with flap control and lowering springs from H & R which drops the ride height by 40 mm.

Strictly a styling exercise, the tuner left the 340 kW / 600 Nm 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine untouched. However, customers who want more power can opt for power upgrade kits from Posaidon.
