Cool body kit on the 2016 AMG GT

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to share a pic of the AMG GT with a stunning body kit
Especially I love the bumper lip with a red accent.
See the very first AMG GT here for more pictures - carid . com/gallery/mercedes/amg-gt/

The metal grey trim replacing the factory black around those intake vents is a nice touch on their end. IT also looks like they lowered the AMG GT, but it's hard to tell due to the new side skirt and front splitter.

I don't like the whole over fender but odds are this is one of the cheaper ways to have a wider profile. Although I do have to admit that if done right in a way that its more one with the body, my opinion can be tipped the other way. Prior Design is a prime example of that, see for yourselves:

Personally, I love to see AMG with bigger fenders, cause basic model's design looks a bit simple in terms of body width. I really like how West Coast Customs made their special body kit for Stinger and I'd love to see WCC edition of AMG GT too.

Another cool AMG GT body kit. Inspired by 1966 Ford GT40, Starke decided to make their own body kit, but for AMG GT. As for me, it looks spectacular. So nice and tidy, nothing redundant, all details seems really thin and appropriate for this AMG GT. I'd prefer this AMG GT over the Silver one above. How do you guys like it?

Not a fan of that extra bulge over the front air intakes, and it seems out of place by not continuing all the way down to the bottom of the bumper. Everything else looks spot on aside from that.
With how much carbon fiber they're said to have used, the AMG GT RS must be substantially lighter compared to a stock model.

Nice attempt at giving the AMG GT some new perspective but to be honest its just not the way I feel an AMG GT should look. So far I haven't seen much positive reaction from that customized AMG GT. What should be done is something that gives it aggressive styling up to par with what we seen from Porsche 911 GT2's.
