Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe revealed

Mercedes-Benz Extends Its AMG Line The AMG GT 4 Door Coupe from Mercedes-Benz

There are some nice exterior design elements, like the frameless side windows, the heavily sculpted hood, the way the roofline goes from the start A-pillar to the very edge of the trunk lid in one smooth curve and the rear spoiler. These include the infotainment system, connectivity options and other operation controls for the auto.

Inside, the designers maintained the "fighter jet-like feel" for the driver's seat - as all the equipment is tilted towards it - but have added new features, such as a performance steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons, Mercedes' dual-12.3-inch Widescreen Cockpit display and a fleet of premium fixtures.

The design of the 4-door follows on from the standard GT, but the addition of the back row of seats means that it has a longer roof line to accommodate them. The new Supersport view adds AMG-specific information.

Despite the sporty character of the GT, it's still a big luxury vehicle, and another S-Class touch inside is the available Energizing Comfort system with pre-programmed packages to set a cabin mood, varying climate control, seat control, massage functions, steering wheel heating and ambient lighting.

Upholstery and seat options range from performance seats to cushy quilted leather. This enhanced powertrain will likely find its way into the C43 coupe and cabriolet models (along with some of the styling updates) as well as the AMG 43 versions of other models, including the GLC43 crossover and the E43 sedan.

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S bumps that up to 630 hp with the hndcrafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine. This machine features 630 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

Both variants put their power through a nine-speed automatic transmission and permanent four-wheel drive with a variable torque split.

Propelling that refreshed outer shell is a 3.0L, twin-turbo V6 generating 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. It's also marginally lighter than the two. Acceleration and top speed figures don't change much at 3.1 seconds (0-60) and 195 miles per hour respectively, but at least you'll have bragging rights. It estimates the AMG 53 at 4.4 seconds.

Interestingly, especially for those who thought this is just an E63S with a different body, all versions of the GT 4-Door Coupe have an active rear-wheel-steering system as standard, which should make for some pretty good handling on the twisties. Of course, if you are in the mood to cruise, the auto can simply switch four cylinders out of the eight in order to maximise fuel efficiency. The top speed is a confirmed 195mph for the 63 S, 193mph for the 63, and 174mph for the 53.
