Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe arrives in Geneva

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series confirmed The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe Is a Track Monster for the Whole Family
| 07 March, 2018, 00:26

As is evident, the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe draws inspiration from the SLS AMG and the more recent AMG GT models. The 4-door coupe looks deadly, but the engine specs are going to be even deadlier.

The GT63 S is now also the housing for the most powerful tune of the 4.0-litre V8 AMG provides. 0-100km/h takes only 0.2s more (3.4 seconds) and the top speed is 310km/h. The slightly de-tuned variant of the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo will make 585 bhp and 800 Nm of peak torque. Further complicating things, the Four-Door Coupe had to maintain the rigid body structure that let the original grand tourer handle so well, whether on street or track. Also V-8-only (in the U.S.) is a Drift mode (standard on the 63 S, optional on the 63), in case you're inclined to drift your very expensive vehicle with very expensive tires.

The third engine option on offer will be the 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine which is a hybrid.

Hitting 0-100 kph (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and with a top speed of 285 kph (177 mph), the GT 53 is definitely no slouch for a base model, but in the future there will also be a GT 43 entry level.

In all models, power is sent to all four wheels (4MATIC+) using an AMG SPEEDSHIFT 9-speed transmission. For those who want to be able to drift, there's a Drift Mode, standard on the 63 S and optional on the other two versions. V-8 models also feature active rear-wheel steering. The rear-wheel-steering setup from the AMG GTR is found on all three models to aid agility at both low and high speeds.


The cabin wraps itself around two 12.3-inch screens as part of the Widescreen Cockpit concept - again, the V8 versions get it standard - that can be customized using the Classic, Sport and Supersport display settings.

There's an abundance of contrasting topstitching, and other embellishments include a Burmester surround-sound system, diamond-shaped perforated seats, a microfiber roof liner and sun visors, and door sills that are illuminated with MB lettering.

Mercedes-Benz claims that the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe "opens up the sports auto segment to those looking for a vehicle for day-to-day use, but who are unwilling to go without the unparalleled performance of Mercedes-AMG".

On the outside, the new C43 shares its redesigned LED head- and taillamps with the just-refreshed 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan, while ditching the outgoing model's glitzy grille inset in favor of a simple bisected "twin-blade" treatment, à la the Mercedes-AMG C63. Rear-seat options for the USA include a pair of non-folding carbon-fiber-backed seats and a 40/20/40-split, folding "executive" backseat that's also available with its own touchscreen and controls.
