Mercedes-Benz has launched a fourth tier for its subscription service, Mercedes-Benz Collection, that consists exclusively of high-performance AMG models available to Atlanta-based consumers for monthly payments starting at $3,595.

With the Mercedes-Benz Collection mobile app, consumers can access “nearly a dozen” new Mercedes-AMG models, including sedans, coupes, roadsters and SUVs, the company noted in a press release. For perspective, 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT retail prices range from about $99,000 to $159,000, according to the CarGurus website.

The other three tiers in the program — signature, reserve and premier — range in price from $1,095 to $2,995 per month, depending on the city, plus a one-time $495 activation fee.
