Mercedes-AMG
GT (C190 / R190) is a 2-door, 2-seater fastback coupé and roadster produced by Mercedes-AMG. The sports car was presented on 9 September 2014 (2014-09-09) and was officially unveiled to the public in October 2014 at the Paris Motor Show.[4] After the SLS AMG, it is the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG. The Mercedes-AMG
Mercedes-AMG
GT went on sale in two variants (GT and GT S) in March 2015, while a GT3 racing variant of the car was released in 2015. A GT4 racing variant, targeted at semi-professional drivers and based on the GT R variant, was released in 2017

Naturally Aspirated Engine
A naturally aspirated engine is an internal combustion engine in which oxygen intake depends solely on atmospheric pressure and does not rely on forced induction through a turbocharger or a supercharger.[1] Many sports cars specifically use naturally aspirated engines to avoid turbo lag.Contents1 Description 2 Applications 3 Advantages and disadvantages3.1 Advantages 3.2 Disadvantages4 See also 5 ReferencesDescription[edit] In a naturally aspirated engine, air for combustion (diesel cycle in a diesel engine or specific types of Otto cycle

Model Year
The model year (MY) of a product is a number used worldwide, but with a high level of prominence in North America, to describe approximately when a product was produced, and it usually indicates the coinciding base specification (design revision number) of that product. The model year and the actual calendar year of production rarely coincide. For example, a 2015 model year automobile is available during most of the 2015 calendar year, but is usually also available from the third quarter of 2014 because production of the 2015 model began in July or August 2014. When a new model is introduced there may be an additional delay to retool and retrain for production of the new model.[citation needed] The variables of build date and design revision number are semi-independent

Gullwing Doors
A gull-wing door, also known as a falcon-wing door, is an automotive industry term describing car doors that are hinged at the roof rather than the side, as pioneered by the 1952 Mercedes-Benz 300SL

race car (W194) and its road-legal version (W198) introduced in 1954. Opening upwards, the doors evoke the image of a seagull's wings. In French they are portes papillon (butterfly doors)

Hood (car)
The hood (American English) or bonnet (Commonwealth English) is the hinged cover over the engine of motor vehicles that allows access to the engine compartment (or trunk on rear-engine and some mid-engine vehicles) for maintenance and repair. In British terminology, hood refers to a fabric cover over the passenger compartment of the car (known as the 'top' in the US). In many motor vehicles built in the 1930s and 1940s, the resemblance to an actual hood or bonnet is clear when open and viewed head-on; in modern vehicles it continues to serve the same purpose but no longer resembles a head covering. The hood release system is common on most vehicles and usually consists of an interior hood latch handle, hood release cable and hood latch assembly

English) of an aircraft, car, bus, motorbike or tram is the front window. Modern windshields are generally made of laminated safety glass, a type of treated glass, which consists of two (typically) curved sheets of glass with a plastic layer laminated between them for safety, and are bonded into the window frame.

Heat Shield
A heat shield is designed to shield a substance from absorbing excessive heat from an outside source by either dissipating, reflecting or simply absorbing the heat. It is often used as a form of exhaust heat management.Contents1 Thermal protection systems1.1 Passive cooling2 Uses2.1 Automotive 2.2 Space 2.3 Industry3 See also 4 ReferencesThermal protection systems[edit] Passive cooling[edit] Passive cooled protectors were used initially to absorb heat peaks and subsequently irradiate stored heat to the atmosphere. Unfortunately, early versions required a considerable amount of metals such as titanium, beryllium, copper, etc. which greatly increased the mass of the vehicle

Wheelbase
In both road and rail vehicles, the wheelbase is the distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels. For road vehicles with more than two axles (e.g. some trucks), the wheelbase is defined as the distance between the steering (front) axle and the centerpoint of the driving axle group. In the case of a tri-axle truck, the wheelbase would be the distance between the steering axle and a point midway between the two rear axles. Wheelbase

Spaceframe
In architecture and structural engineering, a space frame or space structure is a rigid, lightweight, truss-like structure constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern. Space frames can be used to span large areas with few interior supports. Like the truss, a space frame is strong because of the inherent rigidity of the triangle; flexing loads (bending moments) are transmitted as tension and compression loads along the length of each strut. Steel
Steel
space frames provide great freedom of expression and composition as well as the possibility to evenly distribute loads along each rod and external constraints. With these features, steel space frames can be used to achieve also complex geometries with a structural weight lower than any other solution. The inner highly hyper-static system provides an increased resistance to damages caused by fire, explosions, shocks and earthquakes

Aluminium Alloy
Aluminium
Aluminium
alloys (or aluminum alloys; see spelling differences) are alloys in which aluminium (Al) is the predominant metal. The typical alloying elements are copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon, tin and zinc. There are two principal classifications, namely casting alloys and wrought alloys, both of which are further subdivided into the categories heat-treatable and non-heat-treatable. About 85% of aluminium is used for wrought products, for example rolled plate, foils and extrusions. Cast aluminium alloys yield cost-effective products due to the low melting point, although they generally have lower tensile strengths than wrought alloys. The most important cast aluminium alloy system is Al–Si, where the high levels of silicon (4.0–13%) contribute to give good casting characteristics

Iron
is able to take on two crystalline forms (allotropic forms), body centered cubic (BCC) and face centered cubic (FCC), depending on its temperature.
