Production Ready Mercedes-AMG GT Four-Door Spied Ahead Of Reveal
Sill hidden under flame themed camoflauge, Mercedes has released a few teaser images of the production ready AMG GT four-door coupe ahead of its scheduled debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
In just two weeks, enthusiasts will finally see the new variant of the AMG GT family in all its uncovered glory. For now, we’re still left guessing as the neon flames over matte black camo wrap is doing a very good job at hiding the body’s finer details. What can be spied is a fixed rear wing on the rear hatch, a lip spoiler just below the wing, and shaped exhaust tips that looks to be larger than simple round ones.
At least we’re given a glimpse at what the four-door coupe could look like as a daily driver with the prototype being photographed while traversing along city streets and down country roads.
Not much else can be gleaned from these images and we don’t even know what the new model is going to be called let alone what powertrains it’ll be offered with. CarScoops thinks it could be Affalterbach’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 flagship engine, which is good enough to deliver 603 horsepower in the E63 S, There’s talk of a hybrid version as well, though we won’t know for sure until the reveal next month.
This is perhaps the first time I've admired a camouflage wrap, maybe it's the combinations of matte black and a bright accent color but I do like it. What I'd like to see is how the AMG GT four-door performs with all that extra weight thanks to a larger body. Not a problem if the engine really produces 603 horsepower.
Yeah its about time we get some vinyl wraps and not those ugly leather Velcro costumes. Loving what I'm seeing from a styling perspective, fingers crossed that the rumored V8 engine delivers. I know Mercedes has plans to transition the whole AMG lineup to hybrids'/ev's so it would make sense to see that variant on the AMG GT.
Doubt the AMG GT lineup will be getting the hybrid/ev treatment anytime soon, they may even be the last models to go the green route. Performance is key when it comes to the AMG GT and the extra batteries plus motors would add too much weight to the body. A 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 hybrid may be able to produce 800 hp, but the extra weight may prove detrimental.
