All of the four-door AMG GT

Affalterbach/Geneva, 6. March 2018

It has made us really very very long the mouth water. In principle, since last year's Geneva auto salon the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept. But now the Wait has come to an end. Whether it was worth it? Now, when it comes to us, then definitely. They say officially Hello to the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe. Uh, yeah, sounds indeed a bit bulky. Otherwise, however, everything hits right here good.

Up to 639 HP

This is not only due to the dashing appearance (more on that later), but mainly to the abundant generous performance data. Well, on the 812-HP-Hybrid study, we do not have to do without for the time being, to Power, there is a lack nevertheless. Of 612 HP, as in the E 63 and S 63, we have assumed so far. AMG wanted more for his prestige object but, apparently, a little. Therefore, the Top model, the GT 63 S makes, now 639 HP. It has found somewhere in the Depths of the brünftigen 4.0-Liter twin-turbo V8, so another 27 HP. And the GT 63 S made in order to the strongest series-Benz. The torque is, as in the S 63 – in case of 900 Newton meters. The second V8 Option is the GT 63 with 585 HP and 800 Newton meters. Both come with cylinder deactivation, wet dome of the Speedshift-MCT-nine-speed automatic and the fully variable 4Matic+-wheel-drive velvet wegschaltbarer front axle. Proverbs: everyday/winter-traction at the push of a button murder of drift tyres and fun.

A very fast four-door

All of the works already in the platform-giving the E 63 is absolutely exquisite. It is likely to bring in the AMG four-door model for plenty of fun. All the more, because the new GT coupe's tears, in spite of 2.120 kg of body weight a eating tensioner-to-front: GT 63 S pass from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, top speed is 315 km/h. The GT 63 makes the 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and goes 310 km/h. It's all too much and too irrational? Then the third GT-coupe variant may be more your thing. The GT 53 has, as in the new CLS a 3.0-Liter twin-turbo R6-mild hybrid with 435 HP and 520 HP. In addition, the so-called EQBoost can help start the generator for a short time with 22 HP and 250 Newton-meters when Accelerating. The GT 53 gets the 4Matic+all-wheel drive, but has to make do with a simpler nine-speed Box and without the drift mode. 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, its top speed is 285 km/h.

Close to the study

Visually, the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe, pretty much exactly what we expected. This means He is amazingly close to the study and this is very good. Half-AMG GT, half of the Mercedes CLS, a whole lot of Whoa!Including pan-American Grill and active aerodynamics. The latter means: the Front, there are – as in the AMG R – a so-called Air Panel in the front spoiler, GT rear, a retractable rear spoiler. The V8 models get, on request, a sharper, Aero package with larger front splitter, additional Flics, more aggressive rear diffuser and a fixed, manually adjustable rear wing.

Ínnen between track weapon and S-class

In the interior too the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe, the balancing act between a track weapon, and luxury vans. The Cockpit with the two 12.3-inch cinema screens we know from E - and S-class, the GT V8-like arranged in the center console positively screams AMG. The rear seats you have the choice between two single or a folding rear bench for Three. The trunk looks relatively fit to travel. Mercedes-AMG promises to 395 liters to swing, it was 1,324 liters.

The 63-models with air suspension

Driving dynamics the GT 4-door coupe uses different ingredients, depending on whether you opt for the V8 models or the six cylinder. The two GT 63 have air suspension, four-wheel steering and an electronic rear axle differential lock. A ceramic brake there is a surcharge. The GT 63 S sits on 20-inch tyres and comes standard with dynamic engine mounts. All of the aforementioned Goodies of the GT will have to do without 53. He has a conventional steel suspension with adaptive dampers, and as the GT 63 from the factory with 19-inch wheels.

From The Beginning Of 2019

Live, you can marvel at the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe at the Geneva auto salon 2018 (8. to 18. March). The potential prospects have to wait a while. On the hunt for the Porsche Panamera, the upcoming Audi RS 7 and co. the big GT is, in fact, until the end of 2018/beginning of 2019. The ' 53 version follows a few months later. The prices are not fixed yet.(sw)
