Mercedes is also following the trend of strong and very fast family models. So in the future M8 Gran Coupe and the Audi RS7 will be able to compete with the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door Coupe, which does not conceal its aesthetic references to AMG GT’s super-car.
In fact, this is the top-of-the-line version of the new CLS, the basic version of which is the GT 53 with the new turbo 6-cylinder in a range of 3,000 cubic and 435 hp. Supported by an EQ-Boost (mild hybrid system) that contributes 22 horsepower and 250 Nm, the 0-100 km / h is completed in 4.5 seconds and the final reaches 285 km / h.
From here on there are two versions of the 4,000 cubic V8 with the two turbo’s brand, with 639 and 585 horsepower. The first one drives the GT 63 S 4Matic + and ensures a 0-100 in 3.2 seconds and a final 315 km / h. The second one is used in GT 63 4Matic + (0-100 in 3.4 seconds, final 310).
All engines are combined with AMG’s 9-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic + 4-wheel drive, 8-cylinder versions with a pneumatic suspension as well as a fully digital instrument cluster (extra 6-cylinder), while the 63S also features drift mode.
Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door Coupe will be available from next summer and at prices (in Germany) based on about 150,000 euros.
