We’re discussing the production variation of AMG’s GT sedan idea that was unveiled at 2017 Geneva auto show, and evaluating by our newest spy shots the production model will closely resemble the scintillating principle. Surprisingly, Mercedes will be releasing a new generation of its CLS around the very same time that AMG’s GT4 will be arriving, so there will be a little bit of internal competition going on. Other rivals will consist of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Design
The style is originated from the hot lines of the GT cars, although the headlights take on a more angular shape and the length of the hood has been shortened. Obviously, the wheelbase has also been stretched and an additional pair of doors included. The huge rear spoiler has actually been tacked on to hide the true shape of the fastback profile. We only require take a look at the concept to evaluate what the designers are planning.
Rather of using 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 typical 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.
Just like its exterior, the sedan’s interior need to simulate the AMG GT’s from the front seats onward. I desire the same stunning “aviation style” theme with its broad, wing-like control panel and center-mounted, spotlight-style vents to being in front of the chauffeur and front guest, separated by the motorsport-inspired center console and its V-8-like design for the AMG Drive Unit controls.
The stylish and glamorous theme would continue behind the front seats, although legroom and headroom may be a bit cramped for taller grownups. On the other hand, the many connectivity features and access to the car’s infotainment system need to make journeys pleasurable for rear passengers nonetheless.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Engine
Under the hood will sit AMG’s familiar twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 providing in the area of 500 horse power. We’re not expecting the hybrid system previewed in the concept to be readily available at launch. The system, which pairs the V-8 with an electrical motor installed at the rear, provides 805 hp and hence will likely be reserved for a range-topping variation.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Release Date
Try to find the car, which is reported to be called a GT 4, to go on sale in 2019. This means we’ll likely see it show up as a 2020 model. It will be AMG’s third standalone model after the GT sports car and Project One hypercar, which will have been introduced by then.
