An overseas YouTube channel has shared a video showing a partially camouflaged prototype of the powerful Mercedes-AMG GT 73e. The new GT 73e was tested at the Nürburgring race track.

During the presentation of the updated Porsche Panamera fastback last month, it was said that this car was able to set a new Nurburgring record, becoming the fastest executive car. The title was long held by the AMG GT 63 S. A few weeks later, Mercedes hit back at Porsche, saying that Mercedes would regain the crown again.

More recently, a partially camouflaged AMG GT 73e hybrid prototype was spotted at the Nürburgring race track – a video showing this car appeared on a foreign YouTube channel.

At the moment, it is only a matter of time before Mercedes announces a new lap record.

The new GT 73e, which is powered by a hybrid engine from the yellow sticker, will produce about 800 horsepower. The car received a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor. Remarkably, this is a huge leap in power from 630 hp. (900 Nm), which the GT 63 S.

With these power numbers, the Panamera’s record-breaking Nürburgring mileage could be beaten pretty soon, but again, Mercedes has yet to announce anything like that.

The first rumors of an electrified AMG GT 73e surfaced last year. We have already noticed its prototype ready for production several times, so it is more likely that the debut of the new item is just around the corner – most likely, it can take place by the end of the year.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews showed on video an impressively fast Mercedes-AMG E63 S 2021 up to 300 km / h. A video has appeared on the foreign YouTube channel Automann-TV, which captures the crazy acceleration of the powerful Mercedes-AMG E63 S in 2021. Power measurements were carried out on the German Autobahn – a road without a maximum speed limit.
