Geneva 2018: New Mercedes-AMG Four-Door Model Teased Ahead Of Debut

Those of you who are following the Mercedes-AMG official Facebook page would have noticed that the company shared a few teaser images of its new four-door GT road car being tested.

According to Tobias Moers, the CEO of Mercedes-AMG, his team is in the final testing phase before the upcoming world premiere of the car next month in Geneva. 

The production version of the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept, which is tentatively dubbed the GT4 (not to be confused with the GT4 race car), would most probably go up against the likes of Porsche Panamera from the looks of it.  

Visually, the overall styling remains inspired by the AMG GT Concept, boasting a rakish windscreen, a dynamic roofline, and an aggressive front end with the Panamericana grille, complemented by the LED headlights similar to the ones on the new A-Class and the CLS.

At the rear, the latest member of the Mercedes-AMG family features a pair of slim LED taillights similar to the AMG GT, and the brand’s trademark quad-exhaust tips.

Powering the AMG GT will be Mercedes-AMG’s 4.0-litre V8 engine which is further enhanced by a performance hybrid system in a setup inspired by the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 car.

Output figures have not been revealed yet but net system output is stated to reach up to a massive 815 hp in its final stages of development, enabling the car to do the century sprint in less than three seconds.

That being said, full details of the car will be revealed during the launch next month in Geneva.
