Mercedes-AMG is preparing to release a new “monster” – AMG GT 4-Door CoupeSeptember 15, 2018
Yesterday at the Mercedes plant in Sindelfingen, Germany, representatives of the company announced the launch of the production of the newest independent model AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. And in a short time we will be able to see him on the streets of the whole world.
In March at the Geneva Motor Show was presented a prototype sports four-door coupe AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. The model will be the third in the line, developed entirely by the AMG division. The car will be in one line with SLS AMG and GT models, but will be the first to get four doors.
“The production of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant confirms the importance and flexibility of the unit,” says Michael Bauer, site manager at Sindelfingen. “Our team is very motivated and excited by the fact that the GT model, developed by our own forces and having received unique development of the company, continues to be in demand and very successful.”
The sports novelty will be on sale by the end of the year. At the time of the start of sales will be offered only with two motors. And the top configuration will make the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe the most powerful production car in the history of Mercedes.
The top engine will be presented by a four-liter turbo engine V8, which will be installed on the GT 63. Its power will be 585 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. But in the modification of the GT 63 S, its power will increase to 639 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. This will allow a large and heavy compartment to accelerate to “hundreds” in 3.2 seconds, and the maximum speed will be limited to a mark of 315 km / h
The younger model will receive a turbo engine V6 with a working capacity of 3.0 liters and a maximum capacity of up to 435 horsepower. And the motor will work as part of a hybrid system, which will be able to add to it up to 22 hp.
Within a year from the start of sales, a limited edition of “First Edition” will be available. It will be built on the basis of the top version, and will be even more expensive for several thousand dollars. In Russia, the car will also be available. The price has not yet been reported.
