We’re speaking about the production variation of AMG’s GT sedan principle that was revealed at 2017 Geneva auto show, and evaluating by our newest spy shots the production model will closely look like the scintillating concept. Surprisingly, Mercedes will be releasing a brand-new generation of its CLS around the same time that AMG’s GT4 will be showing up, so there will be a little internal rivalry going on. Other competitors will include the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Design
The design is derived from the attractive lines of the GT sports car, although the headlights take on a more angular shape and the length of the hood has been shortened. Naturally, the wheelbase has actually also been extended and an additional set of doors included. The enormous rear spoiler has actually been tacked on to conceal the true shape of the fastback profile. We just require look at the principle to gauge what the designers are preparing.
Rather of making use of an extended version of the GT sports car’s aluminum spaceframe architecture, the sedan is more likely to ride on the MRA rear-wheel-drive architecture typical to routine Mercedes-Benz models like the latest C- and E-Class. It’s possible AMG will make adjustments to reinforce the architecture and possibly decrease some weight.
Just like its exterior, the sedan’s interior must mimic the AMG GT’s from the front seats onward. I desire the very same stunning “air travel design” theme with its wide, wing-like dashboard and center-mounted, spotlight-style vents to sit in front of the motorist and front traveler, separated by the motorsport-inspired center console and its V-8-like layout for the AMG Drive Unit controls.
The sporty and glamorous style would continue behind the front seats, although legroom and headroom may be a bit confined for taller grownups. On the other hand, the numerous connectivity features and access to the car’s infotainment system should make trips satisfying for rear guests nonetheless.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Engine
Under the hood will sit AMG’s familiar twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 delivering in the area of 500 horse power. We’re not anticipating the hybrid system previewed in the idea to be offered at launch. The system, which sets the V-8 with an electric motor mounted at the back, delivers 805 hp and therefore will likely be reserved for a range-topping variant.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Release Date
Look for the car, which is reported to be called a GT 4, to go on sale in 2019. This means we’ll likely see it get here as a 2020 model. It will be AMG’s 3rd standalone model after the GT sports car and Project One hypercar, which will have been introduced already.
