Mercedes-AMG has revealed a four-door concept of the GT sports car at the Geneva Motor Show.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-AMG has showcased a concept based on the AMG GT sports car. The concept is a four-door coupe version of the sports car to expand the AMG GT family. Mercedes has also revealed that the car will also feature a hybrid powertrain and is currently being developed completely at the AMG headquarters in Affalterbach.
The front of the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept looks extremely similar to the standard face lifted AMG GT Coupe with an aggressive rendition of the “Panamericana” front grille. However, the headlamps and the front bumpers are distinct. The wheel base is extended to integrate the rear doors and features a similar roof line from the coupe at the back which tapers down to the rear of the car. The car has bulging fenders and narrow taillights that look similar to those on the coupe
Powering this four-door will be a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 found in the regular AMG GT which has been tuned to deliver 793bhp and power is sent to all four wheels. The engine, to deliver all that power, will work in tandem with the "EQ Power+" hybrid system and will propel the car from 0-100km/h in less than three seconds.
While no time line has been revealed regarding the production of the AMG GT Concept, but Mercedes does claim it is under development. Apart form some minor details, the car seems production ready, and would be a worth competitor to cars like the Porsche Panamera.
