There’s Nothing Entry-Level About The Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door couldn’t look unassuming even if its life depended on it. It’s easily one of the most striking 4-door cars currently on the market, and it’s surprisingly quick, too.

Responsible for that is its 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder producing 367 PS (362 HP) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. With the help of an AMG Speedshift nine-speed automatic, the AMG GT 43 4-door will rocket to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds.

It also comes with an EQ Boost starter-alternator electric motor, feeding the 48-volt electrical system. In short bursts, it can also aid the internal combustion engine with a further 22 PS and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.

This car’s presence at the 2018 Paris Motor Show comes as no surprise, since the GT 43 four-door is the most affordable GT 4-door in the Old Continent, where prices start at €95,259 ($110,940) in Germany.

Posing for the cameras is a Jupiter Red example, with black multi-spoke wheels, tinted windows and a driver-focused interior with carbon fiber inserts, sports seats and loads of contrast stitching. It actually looks like the exact same spec we saw in the model’s official press release, apart from the wheels.

Unfortunately, it appears that neither the U.S. nor Canada will be getting the entry-level four-door AMG GT, having to “settle” for the more powerful, but also more expensive, too, GT 53, GT 63 and GT 63 S instead.

    Looks amazing in the Jupiter Red and blacked out accents. If the U.S. spec doesn’t have those ugly orange indicators in int’s headlights, I’ll def. take this over a M5 or Cayenne Turbo

    Those AMG wheels are !!!!!

    Still don’t feel great about this cars looks, Mercedes newest designs are too bulbous (love the s class coupe tho).

    The Kia Stinger GT I have in my garage has almost identical power and performance, similar rakish looks, plenty of tech and features for a fraction of the cost and a 7 year warranty.

      I really like Stinger. I actually have it in my list as a possible next family car, but how much does it cost in your contry. The spec your are describing is no less than 60,000 euro here. This merc is around 100,000. I know that 40,000 are quite the amount, but somehow I can’t see Stinger cost a fraction of Meec price.

      And it still won’t drive like the Benz or come as close to being as well built or luxurious.

    Strong statement bringing this big 4 door to the show in red. We see you Mercedes.

  • exeptor

    WTH is this – CLS 53 which has to be the softer version and AMG GT4 43! I really don’t get it.

  • Shane

    And I thought the Supra was a disappointment, an absolute scam for that money.

  • getoffme

    So effin ugly.

  • KIND OF SWEET HOW MERCEDES USES THE SAME DESIGN CUES ON THEIR BASE MODELS AS THEY DO ON THEIR HALO MODELS…NO ONE FEELS LEFT OUT IN THE MERCEDES FAMILY.
