Commenting on the success of the launch event at this year’s Formula One Championship, Lennart Mueller-Teut, Head of Marketing and Communications, Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East, said: “It brings us great joy to have unveiled the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé in the region. Mercedes-Benz and AMG have come together to create a car that seamlessly embodies our racing heritage, as well as our vision for the future with a car that delivers power, driving fun, and everyday utility in a way few cars can match.”
The striking silhouette and dynamics of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door Coupé, puts the new model in the portfolio of its two-door brother at first glance. The expressive design with the low bonnet, dominant front and muscular body language emphasises the sporty genes of the four-door coupé.
“The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is the ultimate four-door sports car and the ideal ambassador for Performance Luxury”, said Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG. “It embodies a symbiosis of emotion and intelligence with breathtaking proportions and a puristic, surface-oriented design with sensuous shapes. It is both hot and cool at the same time.”
The output of the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers 639 horses and a maximum torque of 900Nm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kph takes just 3.2 seconds and it has a maximum speed of 315kph.
