Affalterbach -  The new Mercedes-AMG GT four-door Coupé is the first four-door sports car from Affalterbach. 

Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH said: "The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé blends the impressive racetrack dynamism of our two-door sports car with maximum suitability for everyday use.

It has a unique way of embodying our brand core, "Driving Performance" and with its systematic configuration it will attract new customers for Mercedes-AMG."

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé has a top speed of up to 315km/h. The range features 6-cylinder in-line and V8 engines with outputs ranging from 320kW to 470kW.

The AMG GT family membership

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé follows the design philosophy of sensual purity says Mercedes.

The front view with a long bonnet and two powerdomes leaves no doubt that this is the youngest member of the AMG GT family.

As in the AMG GT R radiator shutters, the Airpanel in front of the centre cooling air inlet improves the car's aerodynamic efficiency. Slim MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the AMG-specific radiator protection grille, the Shark Nose and the front apron with its enhanced Jet Wing (with a flowing A-Wing on the six-cylinder model) also lend the youngest model from Affalterbach the hallmark presence of the AMG GT family.

The two eight-cylinder models can be identified through the three horizontal louvres in the side front air intakes, the Jet Wing with its trim element in Silver Shadow, the distinctive diffuser on the tail end and the two-pipe exhaust system with trapezoidal tailpipe trims. The six-cylinder variant, meanwhile, has one louvre in each of the air inlet grilles, round twin tailpipe trims and a somewhat less pronounced rear diffuser.

Top sporting performance: V8 biturbo engines with up to 470kW

The exciting AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine is already used in numerous AMG models. Its output has been enhanced yet further for the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+. It delivers 470kW and a maximum torque of 900 Nm, which is available over a wide engine speed range from 2500 to 4500 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds is claimed by the automaker, and maximum speed is 315km/h.

In the GT 63 4MATIC+ the V8 unit provides 430kW and 800Nm maximum torque. The sprint from standstill to 100 km/h lasts just 3.4 seconds, and the top speed is 310 km/h.

In the AMG GT 63 S variant the eight-cylinder has active engine mounts. They solve the conflicting goals of achieving as soft a connection as possible to the powertrain for high comfort and as rigid a connection as possible for optimum driving dynamics, by steplessly and quickly adapting their rigidity to the respective driving conditions. As an option the AMG GT 63 can be equipped with active engine mounts as part of the Dynamic Plus package.

World première and market launch

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé celebrated its world premiere on 6th March 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show. Sales release of the first four-door AMG GT is in summer 2018.
