Mercedes-AMG GT4 Teased For Geneva

Mercedes-AMG has confirmed plans to introduce its four-door sports car at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The company is keep details under wraps but they released three teaser images of the model and said it is currently “undergoing testing all over the world.”

The car, which has been tentatively dubbed the GT4, was previewed by last year’s Mercedes-AMG GT concept. It features an aggressive front fascia with a Panamericana grille which is flanked by sweptback headlights. The dramatic styling continues further back as there’s a rakish windscreen and a dynamic roofline which echoes the CLS. Despite the styling similarities to the aforementioned model, the GT4 has a unique rear end which features AMG GT-style taillights and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.

While the car’s styling is hidden beneath heavy camouflage, Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers recently said “I have shown some people the finished car now and they are impressed by how close it is to the show car.” The executive also isn’t afraid about customers cross shopping the CLS and GT4 as he stated “We have a loyal CLS customer base already: it has the perfect combination of style, sportiness and comfort. With our new GT4, the task is all about conquest from other brands.”

In order to prevent the product overlap, Moers confirmed the company will no longer offer a CLS 63. Instead, there will be a mild CLS 53 which features a hybridized twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine.

Getting back to the GT4, the model is expected to use a familiar twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine. There’s no word on specifics but the engine produces 571 PS (420 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque in the E 63 and 612 PS (450 kW) and 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of torque in the E 63 S.

There have also been rumors about a hybrid variant and the concept used a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and an electric motor. This enabled the car to produce up to 816 PS (600 kW) and accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds.

    Mercedes might as well hurry back to the design board and redesign the rear.

    So they’ve intentionally made the CLS slower and uglier just so this model has a chance to become a hit? 😉

    so basically this could be cls 63

    Such a shame those are the best headlight and grille designs they can come up with (GOING ON FOUR YEARS NOW) for an otherwise beautifully designed vehicle.

      Actually the panamericana grille debuted on the GTR which is only a year old. Headlights are also unique to this model (although they are a re-design of the regular GT headlights)
