Mercedes-AMG GT4 – Is This It?

While Mercedes-AMG continues to tease the upcoming GT4, the car appears to have been leaked.

The low-resolution picture, brought to our attention by CarScoops reader Eric, reveals the obvious: a Panamericana grille at the front, muscular lines all around, a sloping roofline, and a rear wing.

Its dynamic design, meant to differentiate it from the new generation CLS and serve as a more upscale and aggressive-looking replacement for the old AMG CLS 63, is wrapped in a four-door coupe body style.

When it goes on sale, likely later this year, it will challenge the upcoming BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which is said to be previewed by a concept in Geneva. It will also serve as a rival to the anticipated Audi RS7 Sportback, and the top-end Porsche Panamera as well.

Despite the numerous spy shots and reports surrounding the new Mercedes-AMG GT4, we still don’t know the engine specifications.

Some speak about the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which makes up to 603 horsepower in the new AMG E63 S, while others believe that it will get an electric motor as well, just like the AMG GT study shown last year.

If the latter scenario turns out to be true, then the executive four-door coupe will probably have in excess than 800 horsepower. Moreover, such a model would challenge the likes of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, which has ‘only‘ 671hp available on tap.

Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to find out as the AMG GT4 (or whatever Mercedes calls it) will be revealed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday.

    In my opinion this is what the new CLS should have looked like. Looks great!

    • Bo Hanan

      Took the words out of my mouth. In fact I believe this was the new CLS that was given to AMG because whatever this car could have been and the CLS could not exist on the same showroom floor without stealing sales from each other. So fast-forward the new CLS is just a larger CLA, which that car was a smaller CLS…???

    • Jason Panamera

      Same here. I mean new CLS doesn’t look bad, but it lacks of It’s uniqueness which It get us used to. If this AMG Gt4 was CLS with less powerful engines It’d be a sales hit. ( I mean i would in few years be able to afford it 😀 ).
      This whole CLS and AMG GT4 situation is a little bit messed up. Just waiting for 4 door coupe Merc Vito…

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    still waiting for interior shot

    • Finkployd

      You think it’ll be any different from the e class / e class coupe / cls ?

      • Belthronding

        Oh well, i do not think but i absolutely expect it to be different than e class/cls class.
        Sure it has to be on it’s on way and not only exterior design but also interior.

      • Mynameis Taylor

        I think the interior may resemble that of the AMG GT coupe…..

        • Matt

          I hope it does as well as I love the gt’s center stack, gauge cluster and general interior design layout better (besides the center lcd screen) and in many ways classier imo over the e/s class. However I won’t be surprised at all if it ends up with things like the large dual lcd screens found in the e/cls/s

    • Trim105

      It’ll be the CLS interior with some GT influences. The usual steering column mounted gear selector is absent in recent interior spy shots so I expect/hope it’ll be centre-console fitted like in the AMG GT.

    • Yanis Benchara

      in my opinion , the upper part of the interior will look like e class coupe and the down part the AMG GT

      • Trim105

        According to the teaser video AMG released earlier today you are 100% correct. V8 inspired centre tunnel with gear selector from the GT and everything else is basically from the CLS.

    • Jason Panamera

      It will be More CLS’ish tham AMG GT’ish. Dual screen, horizontal aplications with wents and probably AMG GT center console like. That what comes from spy shoots burh.

      • Jason Panamera

        Oh sorry, I meant that It would be something between AMG GT and new A class.

    • Jason Panamera
  • roy

    Nope… Panamera trumps this one in looks department

    • Bo Hanan

      This looks like a “looks better in the flesh” kind of car.

      • roy

        Maybe… I think the problem with this one is that horrific grille and the rear 3/4th when viewed from the side

    • lapirk

      the panamera trumps only trump in the looks department.
      merc cls and this far better than any porsche hunchback

      • roy

        I don’t know about this one but as far as driving Dynamics are concerned any Porsche hunchback is better that most if not all of the mercs and especially the cls

        • Jason Panamera

          Still wouldn’t have any regrets after buying one of these cars.

          • roy

            Of course…

  • Belthronding

    I think people will be aware of amg gt 4 door by looking rear end and it’s shape.
    So to me rear end is most waited.

  • Kagan

    Hopefully not even if I don’t have any high expectations at all!

  • Dariush

    This and the panamera shooting break…wow…wished i could storm down the autobahn with any of the two!

  • Chris

    Classic beautiful CLS lines, and then they put a passive wing on the rear end, and breaking the whole outlook. Basically shitting on their own (art)work just because some corporate analyst said that if we want to target younger audiences, we need to put a passive wing on it. Don’t think for a second it’s there for downforce… So I can only hope, it’s an optional feature.

    • Ermal Morina

      Pretty sure the wing comes only with Edition 1 package.Other models will have RS7-like rear wing.
      The AMG GT Edition 1 also had a fixed rear wing,so that’s that

      • Chris

        That makes sense

  • Honda NSX-R

    Bring it on, Mercedes-AMG.

  • Christian

    privilege

  • Leconte Dave

    I have a bad feeling of the rear with that roof line

  • Trim105

    Looks fantastic! Shame the new CLS had to look like such a travesty (probably so as not to take away any spectacle from this). Looking forward to seeing either the full reveal or a leaked interior shot next.

  • cashifyer

    These head lights are way more appealing than the new ones on the CLS and A-class.

  • StrangerGP

    I don’t understand why they even bothered with the new CLS, should’ve released only the GT4 and offered it with cheaper engines as well.

  • Sinisa Janko

    Delete the fixed rear wing, AMG.

    • Trim105

      It’s just for the Edition 1 package. The 2 door GT had the same.

  • Elpatore

    that side vent ruins it for me… it looks so tacky.

    • Trim105

      Would have been better if it was at least a functioning vent but sadly doesn’t seem to be the case

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Why’d they even bother with the CLS?

    And get those Pep Boys side vents off the finished product, Mercedes.

    • Nordschleife

      Because it’s brand cache is the CLS name and because the world likes options.

  • Six Thousand Times

    I still like the Panamera better but this is sexy. As long as I have to take a “hybrid” powerteam.

  • Nordschleife

    I like this but I like the CLS also.

  • James Porsche

    800+HP!!!

  • That side vent is hideously tacky. But overall, not bad.
