Mercedes-AMG GT Sedan Will Debut In Geneva Next Year
We were expecting a Mercedes to debut their new AMG GT sedan in January next year at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, but it seems like the automaker has chosen Geneva as their stage instead.
Held annually in March, the Geneva International Motor Show is an important international automotive show and a spokeswoman for Mercedes announced the brands intention to debut the AMG GT sedan there.
Nothing else was noteworthy to MotorAuthority as she was tight lipped about the specifications and sale date, but perhaps the choice in venue was spurred by the concept that was revealed in this year in Geneva. A four door sedan, the GT4 concept featured a hybrid powertrain capable of delivering an impressive 805 horsepower, though we probably won’t see a 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.0 seconds in the production model.
One thing we can be certain of is the MRA platform it’ll sit on. Speaking with AMG head Tobias Moers, MotorAuthority was told that the sedan’s underpinning will be based on what’s already used by the C- and E-Class.
Already spotted testing under camouflage at the Nürburgring, we may hear or see more of the GT4 sedan before its official reveal on March 8th.
Never really cared much for a four door AMg GT, just doesn't have as much appeal as a two door and there's also the increase in body weight. To each their own and no doubt the GT sedan will be a sight to behold even if I'm not a fan.
Seen a picture of that Electric Mercedes Sedan and its design takes after the CLS, and this AMG GT Sedan does too. Does anyone think that sometime in the future we could see an electric high performance Mercedes floating around?
Doubt that they should be concerned about that and rarely is it the case for a production time line, instead I rather see them get it right and then come in for the kill. Plus remember this is a product that has to last another 7-8 years. Just news of it coming to production will hold off some potential Mission E buyers.
Ahead of its debut, the AMG GT Sedan was spied testing again and a large portion of the front facia is uncovered, so you can see the grille and side air intakes. Maybe you can hear the subtle V8 burble, which I can't.
