the new AMG GT 4-door coupé blends the impressive racetrack dynamism of our two-door sports car with maximum suitability for everyday use. it has a unique way of embodying our brand core, ‘driving performance’ and with its systematic configuration it will attract new customers for mercedes-AMG‘, commented tobias moers, CEO of mercedes-AMG GmbH.

 

the new AMG GT 4-door coupé is the ultimate four-door sports car and the ideal ambassador for performance luxury‘, said gorden wagener, chief design officer daimler AG. ‘it embodies a symbiosis of emotion and intelligence with breathtaking proportions and a puristic, surface-oriented design with sensuous shapes. it is both hot and cool at the same time.

 

 

the striking proportions of the mercedes-AMG ‘GT 4-door coupe’, which detail convex surfaces and a muscular body, start with the expressive, low bonnet that features two powerdomes atop. its dynamism continues on the side, where a flowing silhouette of classic coupe architecture is achieved with the lowered greenhouse. tailored upper contours and broad shoulders defines the car’s back. here, its athletic orientation is further emphasized by the pronounced rear wheel arches, slim LED tail lights and the aerofoil, which, whilst extending in several stages, is an important aspect of the active aerodynamics.

 

 

its aerodynamic and overall sporty form acts as the immediate indication of the car’s underlying high performance. the powerful 6-cylinder in-line and V8 engines offer outputs that range from 453 hp to 639 hp, along with a maximum torque of 900 Nm. this accelerates the four-door vehicle from 0 to 62.1 mph in 3.2 seconds and to a top speed of 195.7 mph. this extreme power is controlled with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G 9-speed transmission that not only reduces weight and inertia, but optimizes response time with extremely short shift times that, in total, delivers an emotive gear-shifting experience. the dynamics of the sports car, achieved also through the all-wheel drive system and suspension of steel springs and adjustable damping, completes the model.

 

 

the mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe not only creates a special driving experience for the driver themselves, but also for the passengers. the interior is characterized by an elegant coolness, as well as a blend of personality and technology. with details of its dynamic sportiness, such as the sculptural instrument panel, the space is said to be an ultra-modern symbiosis of performance and exclusivity. the two high-resolution displays, which measure 12.3 inches, offer high individualization as the controls can be configured to preference.
