Mercedes-AMG GT Concept Turned Into A Somewhat More Production-Like GT4

It’s not much of a secret that Mercedes-AMG plans to build a production version of their GT Concept that was revealed earlier this week at the Geneva auto show.

No doubt, many will be wondering how the study will translate into a road-going car.

This render from PeisertDesign tries to do that by removing some of the flashier parts and giving it a tweaked grille and rear diffuser that incorporates a regular twin exhaust setup. It’s a start, but he should have added door mirrors and replaced the over-the-top chrome wheels, if you ask us.

Now, we don’t know if the four-door coupe will keep the study’s powertrain in its final form, but by combining the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with an electric motor, its output has increased to more than 800 horses. This makes it significantly more powerful than the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid and its 671 HP, and allows it to go from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds.

Mercedes‘ parent company Daimler has yet to announce when the production version of the GT Concept will arrive, but in the meantime, they’re prepping the launch of the Project One hypercar, which is due at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, this fall.

    I know it’s the future, it has aerodynamic advantages and it makes the car sleeker, but DAMN, being without rear-view mirrors make it look ear-less… *d’oh*

    • im sure this will not take any long to be ready for production, and people will get use to it

      • TheHake

        We probably will… Does it look strange to you too?

        • well, not really, i think, the cameras dont need to be visible at all. there are for sure better ways of including it into the design

          • TheHake

            I agree that it’s a silly way of implementing the cameras.

    I do like when the people who create the renders actually are involved with the discussion. If you could reach out to them more, that would improve these articles.

    • hi tumbi, i always try to find articles about my renders and try to get involved, its the best feedback you can get
