The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé will soon receive the reinforcement of a nastier and more electrified version. This has been confirmed by a few photos that Mercedes has published in which a lightly camouflaged model appears.
Earlier this week, German automaker Mercedes issued a statement in which it referred to the strengthening between the AMG sports department and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 team. A communication that includes a scoop, and not the least, since it appears alongside the Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar and the very last F1 single-seater (in which Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will compete in the championship this year). very little camouflaged from a Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé whose brand does not say a word. But an additional photo tells us more about this slightly special modelstamped with the new “E PERFORMANCE” badge. That we can find, Mercedes tells us, on future vehicles equipped with hybrid technology and designed for the road . In other words, this photo confirms the imminent arrival of an AMG GT Coupe 4-Door hybrid (and even surely rechargeable).
What to expect under the hood?
Little camouflaged, we can clearly guess that it is not by its style that this cutting-edge version will differentiate itself from the other 4-Door AMG GT Coupé. Same grille, same shield, same design for the air intakes. You will understand, it is under the hood that we can distinguish it.
Mercedes did not communicate any value. But, given the badge, we already know that the thermal part will be provided by the 639 biturbo 4.0-liter V8 of the 63 S version . Rumors have it that it is a plug-in hybrid. Also, the electric motor would deliver a comfortable power (about 130 hp) allowing it to approach the cumulative power of the 800 hp . The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid and its 700 hp would therefore be beaten to the ground …
Exclusive by its performance, this AMG GT should also be by its name “73” (not yet official) borrowed from the SL type R129 of the 1990s powered by a 7.3-liter V12 of 525 hp. His light camouflage uniform indicates that the presentation is near. We should know more about her later this year.
