We’re speaking about the production variation of AMG’s GT sedan concept that was unveiled at 2017 Geneva auto show, and judging by our most current spy shots the production model will closely look like the scintillating idea. Remarkably, Mercedes will be launching a brand-new generation of its CLS around the very same time that AMG’s GT4 will be arriving, so there will be a bit of internal competition going on. Other competitors will consist of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Design
The design is derived from the sexy lines of the GT sports car, although the headlights handle a more angular shape and the length of the hood has actually been shortened. Of course, the wheelbase has actually likewise been stretched and an additional pair of doors included. The huge rear spoiler has been added to conceal the true shape of the fastback profile. We only require take a look at the principle to assess exactly what the designers are preparing.
Rather of utilizing a stretched variation of the GT cars’s aluminum spaceframe architecture, the sedan is most likely to ride on the MRA rear-wheel-drive architecture typical to routine Mercedes-Benz models like the latest C- and E-Class. It’s possible AMG will make modifications to enhance the architecture and possibly decrease some weight.
Similar to its exterior, the sedan’s interior should imitate the AMG GT’s from the front seats onward. I want the same gorgeous “aviation style” theme with its wide, wing-like dashboard and center-mounted, spotlight-style vents to sit in front of the motorist and front guest, separated by the motorsport-inspired center console and its V-8-like layout for the AMG Drive Unit controls. The sporty and glamorous style would continue behind the front seats, although legroom and headroom might be a bit confined for taller adults. On the other hand, the various connectivity features and access to the car’s infotainment system must make trips enjoyable for rear travelers nonetheless.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Engine
Under the hood will sit AMG’s familiar twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 delivering in the vicinity of 500 horse power. We’re not anticipating the hybrid system previewed in the idea to be readily available at launch. The system, which sets the V-8 with an electrical motor mounted at the rear, delivers 805 hp and hence will likely be reserved for a range-topping variation.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Release Date
Try to find the car, which is reported to be called a GT 4, to go on sale in 2019. This means we’ll likely see it get here as a 2020 model. It will be AMG’s 3rd standalone model after the GT sports car and Project One hypercar, which will have been introduced already.
