On Sunday, March 11th, 2018

The new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe delivers driving experiences in new dimensions and extends the AMG model family. The new Coupe is the  first four-door sports car from Affalterbach and draws directly on the legendary SLS and AMG GT models of success.

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S

Clear at first sight: AMG GT family membership

Clearly recognizable as a member of the AMG GT family, the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe follows the design philosophy of Sensual Purity. It takes the striking proportions with convex surfaces and a muscular body and develops them to exciting effect for a four-door variant of an AMG GT Coupe.

Visual emphasis on demand: the exterior packages

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe offers an extensive portfolio of exterior equipment packages, which can be used to add different highlights in terms of design. The Night Package comprises high-gloss black trim, while, for example, the Chrome Package emphasizes the luxurious character of the car with trim and an insert in high-gloss chrome.

op sporting performance: V8 biturbo engines with up to 630 hp

The exciting AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine is already used in numerous AMG models. Its output has been increased even further for the new Mercedes- AMG GT 63 S and ensures superior performance on a par with a sports car.

Powerful and versatile: six-cylinder engine with innovative hybrid function

Alongside the two V8 engines the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is also available as the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 with the innovative AMG AMG-enhanced 3.0-liter Inline-6 turbo engine with EQ boost.

More energy for yet more innovations: new 48-volt on-board power supply

The EQ Boost starter-alternator in the new AMG GT 53 also generates the power for the 48 V on-board electrical system. This in turn uses a DC/DC converter to supply the conventional 12 V network for the lights, cockpit, infotainment displays and control units. Through the 48 V battery, the battery capacity of the entire car is increased, which means that more electrical energy can be made available for new functions. The 48 V on-board electrical system thus also paves the way for the progressive expansion of infotainment and assistance systems.

Emotional gearshifting experience: AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmissions

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed transmission is specially tuned to the requirements of the eight-cylinder variants of the new four-door AMG GT. A wet clutch is used, which reduces weight and inertia and optimizes response.

Always in touch with Connectivity and Intelligent Drive

For high comfort in everyday use, the new four-door sports car from Affalterbach boasts all the connectivity and Intelligent Drive functions and options of the Mercedes-AMG S-Class. This includes the ability to support the driver with routine daily tasks such as driving in a traffic jam.

The vehicle as a virtual race engineer: AMG TRACK PACE

With AMG TRACK PACE, drivers can capture and analyze in detail over 80 vehicle-specific data as well as laptimes on the racetrack. AMG TRACK PACE is an additional function of the COMAND infotainment system and is part of the standard equipment for the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe.

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe can also be fitted with the ENERGIZING comfort control for improved driver-fitness safety. This system networks different vehicle functions such as the air conditioning system, seat control, massage functions, steering wheel heating and ambient lighting, in order to relax or refresh the driver and passengers in a targeted manner with predefined programs.

World premiere and market launch

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe celebrates its world premiere on March 6th, 2018 at the Geneva International Motor Show. Sales release of the first four- door AMG GT is in early 2019 for the AMG GT 63 and 63 S and in mid-2019 for the AMG GT 53.
