Yesterday we met a down payment in the form of teaser of the new Mercedes-AMG GT prototype. Today, at last, has been revealed at the Geneva Auto Show. This Coupe’s high performance with four-door body is presented as a future and tough opponent for the Porsche Panamera; both aesthetics and dynamics. It has many similarities with the AMG GT two-seater, but stretches the body making a sports sedan silhouette with body of coupé.
Unlike what you might think, this prototype is a hybrid model that incorporates the latest studies in this branch by Mercedes and AMG, which receive information directly from the own Formula 1. Such a hybrid system, with name EQ Power +, associated with engine V8 biturbo 4 liter usual AMG models. Total is 815 HP at full performancepower. He says the German company which this society between thermal and electric motor allows the GT Mercedes-AMG to move from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds.
Aesthetically looks a prototype something futuristic. We have no doubt that the GT Mercedes-AMG will reach production, because probably in 2019will do it, but yes we hope to receive several changes in its final version. Now has a few lines of design that yes could be kept, but it is not so logical to come to the market with these tires in dual-tone and so low-profile (very showy, by the way) or using cameras instead of mirrors traditional mirrors.
Watching side car can appreciate the little glass surface from the side, as dynamic and muscular forms seeking to Mercedes, as well as the arched ceiling to get the silhouette of coupé, reduce the size of the side windows. Behind has a few fine pilots of rear lights and a prominent diffuser with large exhaust Central.
