Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is Set to Excite the Whole Family
More space, more power, more goosebumps – the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé combines extraordinary sports car technology with high everyday usability and impressive amounts of space. With this model, Mercedes-AMG is opening up the sports car segment to customers who wish to share the experience of the best driving dynamics with their family and friends.
Top-level longitudinal and lateral dynamics, and a striking silhouette with classic sports car proportions put the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé in the same portfolio as its two-door sibling at the very first glance. The expressive design with the front end drawn low down below the stretched bonnet, not to mention its muscular body, low greenhouse and powerful fastback highlights the sporty genes of the four-door Coupé.
The new 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder petrol engine and the proven AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine cover a performance spectrum ranging from 367 hp to 639 hp. They deliver incredible driving performance despite offering contemporary levels of efficiency. AMG-specific technologies such as the fully-variable 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system and the rapid-shifting AMG SPEEDSHIFT 9G transmission with torque converter (TCT = Torque-Clutch Transmission) on six-cylinder models and a wet start-off clutch (MCT = Multi-Clutch Transmission) on eight-cylinder models serve to increase performance levels. As with the two-door AMG GT, the active aerodynamics with AIRPANEL active air control system in the front apron and extendible rear spoiler form the basis for high aerodynamic performance.
The interior is equipped with a number of modern high-tech features: innovative control panels such as the eight high-resolution display buttons in the centre console can be intuitively operated. The AMG Performance steering wheel with the new AMG steering wheel buttons (standard on the AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+), the AMG seats and the fully-digital Widescreen Cockpit (standard on eight-cylinder models, optional for six-cylinder vehicles) with the new “Supersport” display style underscore the vehicle’s dynamic character. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the EASY-PACK tailgate, Burmester® Surround Sound system (standard on the eight-cylinder models) and the 64-colour ambient lighting increase the car’s everyday comfort.
The blend of high individualisation and sports car technology, placing yet more focus on the requirements of discerning customers, is also clear from the wealth of equipment packages and individual options. This is unique in the segment and includes, for example, three different configurations for the rear bench seat. Two individual seats in the rear are the standard equipment.
The high longitudinal and transverse dynamics come by virtue of systematic networking of all systems and components. The extremely rigid structure of the bodyshell also contributes to this, as does the sophisticated control strategy of the fully variable all-wheel-drive system. Working together with the active aerodynamics, the active rear-axle steering (standard on the eight-cylinder models, optional for six-cylinders) and the integrated AMG DYNAMICS dynamic control system, the sophisticated suspension configuration comes fully into its own.
Production of the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé started in September in hall 36 of the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant. The plant is the competence centre for vehicles of the upper and luxury segments. There, Mercedes-Benz produces the entire Mercedes-AMG GT family.
The V8 drivetrain of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is produced at AMG’s engine manufacturing plant in Affalterbach in accordance with the “One Man – One Engine” principle.
