Usually when we hear about high-end automakers dabbling in bicycle design, the result is a road bike; Mercedes AMG however has decided to go with a mountain bike. The sports car and performance brand within Mercedes-Benz recently joined forces with German bicycle manufacturer Rotwild, to create the limited-edition Rotwild GT S. Inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT automobile, the hard-tail GT S and Only 100 Rotwild GT S bikes are being made featuring a monocoque high-modulus carbon fiber frame. Carbon also finds its way into the Pro Tharsis XC handlebar and seat post, the Ergon SRX saddle, the Crankbrothers Cobalt 11 29-inch rims, and the water bottle cage.

Bumps are handled by a 100-mm ThirtyThree fork from Italian brand Formula, while shifting is taken care of electronically via a Shimano XTR Di22 x 11 drivetrain.
