Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Coupe Makes Sweet V8 Music While Testing At The Track

Although the GT 4-Door Coupe was officially launched in Geneva earlier this doesn’t mean that Mercedes-AMG is done with it.

In fact, development seems to be continuing right up to the last moment, with a few production-ready models being scooped at the Nurburgring recently.

The reason behind the latest testing session appears to have two clear goals: some last-minute fine tuning and probably making sure that everything works as it’s supposed to, prior to its launch in Europe in the coming weeks, and in the USA early next year.

With the new GT 4-Door Coupe, Mercedes-AMG is targeting those looking for a sporty executive sedan equipped with Affalterbach’s latest and greatest technology. The car will also serve as the successor of the old AMG CLS 63, which won’t be making an appearance in the third-gen CLS.

The new four-door coupe could punch a hole in the ozone layer, thanks to its extremely powerful twin-turbo V8 engine. In top form, the GT 4-Door Coupe puts out 639PS (630hp / 470kW) and 900Nm (664lb-ft) of torque, which are channeled to both axles through a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The 0-100km/h (0-62mph) is dispatched in just 3.2 seconds, while top speed stands at 315km/h (196mph). This makes it the it the most powerful Merc money can buy right now, excluding of course the Project One, which a. isn’t in production just yet, and b. is an altogether different beast.

      That ain’t no lie!

      See what you did there, lol and I agree.

  • KSegg

    That is butt ugly. Literally.

    • Kash

      I guess Mercedes really wanted to follow in Porsche’s footsteps for their Panamera fighter: Make the first gen ugly as sin, make the 2nd one gorgeous.

      • ksegg

        Yeah, no kidding. The AMG line is really confusing to me at the moment.

        If this GT4 is supposed to be a Panamera fighter, where does the CLS63 fit in?

        • wins_lord

          What CLS 63?

        • Kagan

          It is based on a E estate.

        • Kash

          CLS63 doesn’t exist anymore, at least Mercedes hasn’t announced one and we haven’t seen one testing. CLS is now a strictly A7 fighter. The CLS used to try and do double duty with the A7 and Panamera so it’d end up compromising in some way, now the CLS can had the A7 hard while the GT4 can hit the Panamera just as hard and both cars can really be tailored and designed for their target demographics which are quite different.

          • ksegg

            Gotcha, I meant to say CLS53…..as that is the most current one.

          • Kash

            the CLS53 is the S7 fighter. while the 400 is the A7 fighter obviously.

    I thought the design was growing on me.

    • ksegg

      Everything looks better in concept.

      Remember the original 986 Boxster concept? That was GORGEOUS.

      And then they rolled out the production version. *barfs*

      • roy

        To tell you the truth I did not liked the concept either.

  • Kyler Barrett

    I’d rather drive a Ford Probe than this ugly bean

      OH MY KRAKEN, YOURE BLOODY RIGHT!

  • Belthronding

    i like it already

  • Yishay

    Gosh that thing is hideous

  • SteersUright

    Took the words right outta my mouth.

  • Infinite1

    Buddy of mine had the GT S coupe and returned it back to MB under the lemon law. I wasn’t impressed with it, back hatch rattled since day 1, the thing was constantly in limp mode, and we took a recent road trip in Texas in triple digit numbers and the AC was going in and out. Wasn’t a pleasant ride needless to say
