Since spring 2015 the Mercedes-AMG GT on the road, now the Affalterbach company is working on his successor. The coming generation of the Coupes will be the platform, as well as many other technical components with the new one SL (R232) share. Visually, the two should be very different, like a cutout in one Video from Mercedes from 2019. AUTO BILD had the athlete drawn and has the first information!
Optical borrowings from the AMG One hypercar
The sideline of the AMG GT is reminiscent of the elongated bonnet and the short overhangs still strongly to the expiring generation of athletes. Unlike the new SL however, the upcoming GT optically bonds on AMG One to take. the Air inlets, the Headlights and the glued-on star are similar to the design language of the Hybrid hypercarswhile the SL is still dealing with the Typical AMG Panamericana grill must be content. There could be larger air outlets on the side, modeled on those of the AMG GT Black Series. Retractable door handles the current generation of S-class (W223) should also be on board – as with the SL.
V8 possible as a plug-in hybrid with over 800 hp
The new AMG GT could the drives of the SL with the Four-liter V8 biturbo engines take over. These perform in SL 476 PS (SL 55) and whopping 585 hp (SL 63). The power is transmitted to all four wheels with the “4Matic +” all-wheel drive. Another engine would be the one known from the AMG A 45 Four-cylinder conceivable, possibly also as Plug-in hybrid. Also the over 800 hp, electric supported V8 from the AMG GT 63 S E-Performance could in the AMG GT as top engine are used. It will probably take a while before the first models are available from dealers. But already The new AMG GT could be presented in 2022. Prices are likely to rise slightly, so far the coupe has started around 124,000 euros. A convertible version of the GT is unlikely, the fresh air feeling should be reserved for the SL.
