Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe Is A Smart-Looking 630HP Bruiser

Mercedes-AMG has finally revealed the new GT 4-Door Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show, marketed as the AMG GT’s four door sibling.

The new member of the Mercedes-AMG family will be offered in three versions, at least initially, including the GT 53 4MATIC+, the GT 63 4MATIC+ and the range-topping GT 63 S 4MATIC+.

The most powerful version of AMG’s four-door coupe will use the biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine, producing in that case 630hp (639PS) and 663lb-ft (900Nm) of peak torque. With the kind help of the trick all-wheel drive system, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S is capable of pulling a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 3.2 seconds, while flat out it’ll do 195mph (315km/h).

Opt for the “plain” 63 model and you’ll get 576hp (585PS) and 590lb-ft (800Nm) of peak torque. 0-62mph (100km/h) is 0.2 seconds slower, at 3.4 seconds, while top speed is now just 192mph (310km/h).

Both V8 models are equipped with AMG Cylinder Management that deactivates a bank of cylinders in the partial-load range and when the driver has selected the Comfort drive mode. The more powerful S version also comes with active engine mounts, which are optional in the regular 63 version.

Entry-level GT 53 models are powered by the recently-launched plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine with an electric motor for a total of 429hp (435PS). The electric boost is 21hp and 184lb-ft of torque. The petrol engine also employs an electrical compressor in addition to the regular exhaust gas turbocharger, effectively killing any turbo lag. 0-62mph (100km/h) comes in 4.5 seconds while top speed is 177mph (285km/h).

V8-powered versions of the AMG GT 4 use the more responsive nine-speed MCT gearbox and a multi-chamber air suspension while the GT 53 version employs the regular nine-speed TCT transmission, as well as steel springs and adaptive dampers. Rear-wheel steering is standard on the 63 versions and an option on six-cylinder models.

All models in the Mercedes AMG GT 4 lineup are fitted with the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive which continuously computes the best torque split between axles, depending on driving conditions and the driver’s inputs. The now-famous Drift mode is standard on the 63 S models, with AMG to offer it as an option in the rest of the range.

Inside you get greeted by the usual pair of 12.3-inch digital displays for the instruments and infotainment but the new feature lies on the elevated center console. The new GT 4 is the first model to feature color display buttons that control the transmission modes, suspension, ESP, exhaust system, and more. The new control buttons are supplemented by the two capacitive switches for the driving modes and volume control.

Mercedes AMG will launch the GT 4 in Europe late this summer, with pricing details to be announced closer to that date.

    I’m extremely underwhelmed and disappointed by the design language which to me did not exactly flow in the vein of the AMG GT styling and stance. Totally ho hum.

    • donald seymour

      Bruh, I’m with you on this.

    • Ermal Morina

      Dude honestly,this is a sexy looking car.I don’t know which part of the car you don’t like,or you’re just hate talking here.
      Atleast for me personally,this is one of the best looking models of the Mercedes lineup.
      Can’t imagine how angry and badass this would look seeing it in real life and on the road.

      • Six Thousand Times

        He really should have cleared his opinion with you before posting. Some people, eh?

  • Vangelis Goulis

    Can’t put my finger on it now…..but I don’t like the shape of it. It is like it is rryting to look like a Merc , a Porsche and a BMW at the same time.

    • I did feel the side is a bit Porsche Panamera.

    • Jesse A. C. Majors

      The last window pane in the back is what makes it look extra horrible

      • Enter Ranting

        That crooked last window is also totally fake. It doesn’t show up inside.

        • donald seymour

          Wait what?

        • eb110americana

          That is not correct. See picture #14 and look for the bit of blue below the passenger side headrest. There is a pillar there, but after that there is another piece of glass.

          • Enter Ranting

            Yeah, there’s glass on the outside, but no glass on the inside. Look at photo #24 of the back seat. It’s a fake window.

          • eb110americana

            Photo #24 is the front of the car. (Look at the number in the top left-hand corner.) It is not fake, look at photo #14. It isn’t immediately obvious, but there is glass back there that is visible from the inside.

          • eb110americana

            You can also see it in the last photo (115) and in #111.

          • Six Thousand Times

            Pic 116.

    • vvmdrf

      Perhaps a little too bulbous and heavy looking

      • CBV2020

        Gotta know when to push back from the dinner table lol

  • StrangerGP

    This car looks like new generation of CLS should’ve looked.

    • Mynameis Taylor

      I agree

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    great replacement of amg cls

  • Is it me or the side and rear end is bloated. It doesn’t look like AMG GT Sibling at all. More like CLS in a fat suit.

    • Christian

      Well, all jokes and trolls aside its based on the CLS. 🙂

    • Kaisuke971

      I don’t know if it’s the angle or the wing but while I’d agree for the black car, the blue one looks stunning from the rear, like a proper more practical AMG GT.

  • Vottek Mäxle

    It looks quite ok in blue and in combination with those rims, because it looks most similar to the concept. But in the other two configurations it looks horrible.

  • Belthronding

    All is well, but remove this rear wing pls.

    • Bo Hanan

      Keeps the rear end from wandering.

      • Belthronding

        I am ok how functional it is but it really irritates me seeing a rear wing on a 4 door.
        Rear wings fit only japan 4 doors like old time subaru and mitsubishis and it is in a good way,but mercedes,NO.

        • Bo Hanan

          It does have a ricer look to it.

  • Stigasawuswrecks

    What’s the point if you already have the CLS and E63S wagon? I’m lost on this one.

    • CADOX

      The point is to create an AMG sub-brand which goes head to head with manufacturers the Mercedes brand doesn’t compete against.

      • CBV2020

        Better start competing then, cuz this Manatee…

  • CADOX

    It’s gorgeous and brutal-looking just like I expected it to be. The way the whole front is sculpted with its wide front panel that narrows down as it’s progressing towards the A pillars is simply stunning as seen on picture 50.

    • CADOX

      They’ve added pictures since my 1st post, it’s now image 66 lol

  • Elpatore

    i hate to say this but i think its one of the worst designs of late, it looks depressed and fat, the panamera looks so much more elegant in every aspect, i really wanted this to be the original cls modern evil twin, instead it looks like a microwaved new cls,

  • Kagan

    No looker!

  • StrangerGP

    So? It doesn’t need to be exactly the same, the whole point of the CLS was to create a sporty looking 4 door coupe. Now Mercedes has that with the AMG GT4 and the new CLS looks like its Chinese knockoff.

    • Timothy Gough

      CLS will be killed off. This is the last generation of CLS.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I think that blue on the AMG GT 4 door is the worst color for it, doesn’t really suit the car.

  • Anthony James

    How can they take a CLS and an AMG GT and create this?

    • Bo Hanan

      They did.

  • Kagiso Mutlaneng

    Love it!

  • Bo Hanan

    I like it! It’s not pretty its striking! And I’m sure in 63S trim it will devastate its competition.

  • Pedro Pereira

    Oh look, it’s the Mercedes Panamera!

  • RDS Alphard

    So, this is a squashed E-Class, instead of stretched AMG GT?

    • donald seymour

      Great observation.

  • Ermal Morina

    It looks stunning.It definitively does.
    As for the 800hp version,I think it’ll come later this year or even in 2019

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I feel like Mercedes are trying to insult my intelligence by making a “53” model of this.

    But whatever.

    • donald seymour

      Tumbi, I’m thinking the same thing. I’m like what? Okay whatever. If you must have it then let it be so.

    • Nordschleife

      I have to agree. They said that this would be further distinguished by only being offered in 63 guise so by offering a 53 version more than any other thing is an issue for me.

  • Enter Ranting

    It looks like a blister. The fake grilles in the rear bumper are silly, and the light piping in the dashboard is tacky. This is the best Mercedes can do?

    • donald seymour

      You sound like Killmonger.

  • donald seymour

    IS THIS YO KING?

  • Nordschleife

    It looks good to me especially in the blue and the fixed spoiler just reminds me of the Panamara turbo with its wing deployed but more than anything I am annoyed by them offering this in a 53 version. That seems like a slap in a face to the CLS.

  • roy

    Nope… Still I’ll go for the panamera. Having said that I can’t afford either one of them

  • Jay

    it doesn’t even have a panoramic sunroof…..

    • Jason Panamera

      Becasue in this car you are supposed to hit the pedal to the metal and focus on the road and your passengers are supposed to shit in their pant by the velcity and brutaility of it… Jokes aside, it sucks witout sunroof.

      • THAT’S WHAT A MODELS S DOES AND HAS A PANORAMIC ROOF.

  • Jason Panamera

    Oh, hello new generation of CLS… Front looks like it was gonna rape any other car on the road.

  • Rot

    What a primitive buttons?!

  • The 63S model (Cobalt Blue) is good looking, however I’m not sure these cars are worth the price premium they will command…the design is ho-hum…

  • mas921

    the M8 concept really stole this one’s thunder …the front end is …fine? but the rear is just …*argh*

  • Charles Lane

    Ugh wanted to like this one but prefer the Panamera, also the CLS is better looking.

  • An Existing Person

    This was perfect until I saw the rear end. The end as a whole seems a bit too rounded and those taillights don’t suit the design or overall shape of the car. I’m glad I didn’t place my deposit on this car prematurely, so instead i’ll put it towards an E63.

  • LWOAP

    It looks okay but I think they could have been done better. At least where the rear end is concerned.

  • Chad L

    It’s a Porsche. Needs to be jacked up to SUV proportions to sell well though.

  • Carmelo Van Cabboi

    I don’t understand MB. The new design language is… ugly. Always great interior but the outside is… terrible.
    This ANY GT is what a CLS should be but it is the AMG so it is all wrong.
    I still prefer the Panamera on this thing

  • MarketAndChurch

    I don’t know why Mercedes felt the need to build this. But when you’re swimming in so much cash, sometimes you don’t know what to do with it.

  • Xandao

    H I D E O US

  • Tinky-Winky

    I feel like the headlights should be more tilted and definitely don’t order your car with glossy black center console.

  • SteersUright

    Impressive but nowhere near as beautiful as it truly should have been.

  • Karl

    Simply stunning indeed! Audi are you taking notes?

  • getoffme

    This looks disappointing while a concept from BMW stole the spotlight.

  • Jim Ragland

    For some reason I’m not as stoke about this car as I thought I would be. Maybe all this CUV this…and SUV that has changed my perception of knowing when a good car comes along that we should appreciate the style and timeless design. I will not be able to afford it, but can imagine it being bad ass.

  • TheHake

    Are those little screens on the buttons? How friggen cool is THAT?

  • Ary Wisesa

    I love this. Now I must wait for the 1:18 diecast model to be released soon. Because I can’t afford the real one. Hahaha… 😛

  • Vassilis

    Well, it’s interesting…

  • FlameWater

    This is the monster I’ve been waiting for, gonna need a diecast model of this

  • CBV2020

    I was nealry sold by anticipation’s ability to blur lines like a one night stand after a pub crawl.

    The interior is mildly impressive. Considering the spirit from which the car is supposedly derived(see the Green Hell), the interior lacks edge which luxury can meet IF a sharp vision dodges the parts bin. Okay, so we have this coolish, lower center console, but everything else looks at home in any other Benz. They could’ve hit the italicize key on the exterior, honestly reminds me of deceased, bloated road kill. I do love the concept of this project, however I’m rather underwhelmed.

    They had a chance to goal this and it’s barely there for what I believe AMG can really do once they stop bringing their lap dogs to work. It’s nearly just a fast Benz, exclusively AMG’d to make more $$$. I hope AMG doesn’t enter the cheese slicing business, Benz is cruising the line of standard deli counter. Love the blue paint!

    Now that M8 though…
