Well we are super excited to share these pics, as we just took delivery of the new Vossen Mercedes AMG GT S Build on Monday, and by Thursday night we had the vehicle lowered on Vossen Forged VPS-306 wheels! Personally, I am a huge fan of this vehicle having driven it at the AMG GT S event at Thermal last December (click here for my review of the AMG GT S) and really feeling this is one of the most involving and soulful cars on the road today. We took delivery from our good friend Ariel at Mercedes of Coral Gables and immediately began measurements to custom build its Vossen Forged: Precision Series VPS-306 wheels!

All our images of the #vossengts can be seen at the by clicking here.

These tanks ensure our Vossen Forged Wheels are as clean as possible so there are minimal issues with paint/clear coating.

Now the AMG GT S has the proper stance to accent those beautiful lines

An amazing week for our team and we are super happy with the final look!

As you can see we went from delivery to finished product in less than a week for a full built custom forged wheel. The team at Vossen worked tons to make this happen since we were all excited for this new Mercedes and we wanted to feature it by Friday. We actually were a day early! More modifications to come and we will keep you updated in our blog.
