Mercedes-AMG GT4 Shows Off Its Sporty Styling Ahead Of Geneva

Mercedes-AMG recently confirmed plans to introduce their four-door sports car at the Geneva Motor Show and now we’re getting a better glimpse at the upcoming model.

Caught alongside a handful of other prototypes, the car has a Panamericana grille which is surrounded by large air intakes and distinctive headlights that mimic the ones used on the Mercedes-AMG GT concept.

Moving further back, we can see a rakish windscreen and five-spoke wheels which cover a high-performance braking system. The model has also a dramatic roofline which bears a strong resemblance to the CLS. Rounding out of the styling features are a unique rear end with slender taillights and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.

The CLS styling cues carryover to the cabin as consumers would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two models. This particular prototype has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment system. The car also has piano black trim, circular air vents, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel which is shared with the CLS 53.

Despite the styling similarities between the CLS and GT4, it’s worth noting the center console is covered by camouflage. It could be hiding some changes underneath but nothing is official as of yet.

Mercedes has been tight-lipped about performance specifications but the model is expected to use a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine. Given the fact that Mercedes won’t offer a CLS 63, it’s possible the engine will have outputs of 571 PS (420 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque as well as 612 PS (450 kW) and 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of torque.

    The top of the dashboard is the same but you can see that the lower part (covered up) is different. It seems that it’s going to look like AMG GTs center console with all of the buttons. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/79ec0cabc1a42872c04895d88f890982a95c45aa6b59c5f1cd47aefe6f128d99.jpg

    So will this be AWD like the E63 too?

    Gone will be the beautiful speedometer dials with dome covers from modern Mercedes, replaced by utterly boring flat screen. I saw a Tag Heuer smart watch that loses all its beautiful intricacies of traditional dials, replaced with boring flat screen with chronographs graphics. Maybe it somehow looks alike, but real dial simply too beautiful to be compared to “virtual” chronograph dial from LCD. And now the trend start in speedometer dial that replace with “virtual” LCD dial. If that is what they want, they might as well show a Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse picture on the dials.
