Mercedes has released two images of the interior of its upcoming AMG GT. The high performance car is due for release towards the end of 2014. The company promises that the new GT will boast "the finest materials and outstanding workmanship," and describes the interior as having a modern luxury feel.

One could never suggest that the AMG models in the Mercedes range don't make use of modern features, and such is the case here. Above the stylish "spotlight-style" air vents is a tablet-like display, which will be used for navigation and entertainment purposes. The center console features banks of switches arranged like the eight cylinders of a V8, and there's an S-Class-like Burmester Audiosysteme speaker showing in one of the doors.

The new interior design reiterates the aviation theme that runs through other Mercedes models, and looks rather luxurious too, with red leather stitched into the fittings and embossing at the center. The new GT will be powered by an AMG V8 engine and will begin shipping internationally from the end of this year.

CEO of Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers says that the new GT aims to position AMG more aggressively in the sports car market than previously. "The technological substance of the Mercedes-AMG GT underscores our high aspirations with regard to driving dynamics, agility and sportiness," explains Moers. "Following the global success of the SLS AMG, the new GT is the second sports car developed fully independently by Mercedes-AMG."
