We’re talking about the production version of AMG’s GT sedan concept that was revealed at 2017 Geneva auto show, and judging by our latest spy shots the production model will carefully resemble the scintillating idea. Surprisingly, Mercedes will be introducing a new generation of its CLS around the very same time that AMG’s GT4 will be showing up, so there will be a little bit of internal rivalry going on. Other rivals 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 cars, although the headlights take on a more angular shape and the length of the hood has been shortened. Of course, the wheelbase has actually likewise been stretched and an additional set of doors added. The massive rear spoiler has actually been tacked on to conceal the true shape of the fastback profile. We only require take a look at the principle to gauge exactly what the designers are preparing.
Rather of utilizing an extended version of the GT sports car’s aluminum spaceframe architecture, the sedan is most likely to ride on the MRA rear-wheel-drive architecture common to regular Mercedes-Benz models like the most recent C- and E-Class. It’s possible AMG will make adjustments to enhance the architecture and maybe minimize some weight.
Similar to its exterior, the sedan’s interior need to simulate the AMG GT’s from the front seats onward. I want the same gorgeous “air travel design” 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 elegant style would continue behind the front seats, although legroom and headroom may be a bit confined for taller adults. On the other hand, the numerous connectivity features and access to the car’s infotainment system must make trips pleasurable for rear guests however.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Engine
Under the hood will sit AMG’s familiar twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 delivering in the area of 500 horse power. We’re not anticipating the hybrid system previewed in the concept to be readily available at launch. The system, which pairs the V-8 with an electric motor mounted at the back, provides 805 hp and thus will likely be booked for a range-topping version.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Release Date
Search for the car, which is rumored to be called a GT 4, to go on sale in 2019. This suggests we’ll likely see it arrive as a 2020 model. It will be AMG’s third standalone model after the GT cars and Project One hypercar, which will have been introduced by then.
