The Mercedes-AMG GT is one cool supercar from the get go, but that doesn’t mean the owners would say no to a new tuning program for the high-performance model, especially if it comes at a bargaining price.

Called out as a “vigorous power upgrade,” the aftermarket program includes a new performance module which is available for both the AMG GT and the AMG GT S. It will cost a mere $4,148 (€3,650) and makes the biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine deliver 595 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. With the added power on tap, the model will do the 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in 3.6 seconds, 0-124 mph in 10.1 seconds, and 0-186 mph in just 27.3 seconds.

The Lorinser Mercedes-AMG GT is a restrained tuning package, with subtle design tweaks such as the new set of RSK 8 light-alloy wheels which can be had in 20-inches up front and 21-inches in the rear. For added customization, the three-piece forged alloy wheels can be had in black or gold and pricing starts at $12,986 (€11,424) – excluding the cost of tires. For those that still plan on playing out with their supercar out in the snow, there’s even a winter tire and wheel package which brings 19-inch RS9 light-alloy wheels with all-season tires. As a reminder, the regular Mercedes-AMG GT S goes from $129,900 and has a biturbo V8 engine good for 503 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, mated to a seven-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch transmission for a 60 mph time of 3.7 seconds.
