Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4-Door Coupe Defies Entry-Level Status With Nearly Six Figure Price Tag

Entry-level has a different meaning when you’re talking about something from Mercedes-AMG, so it comes as little surprise the GT 53 4-Door Coupe costs a whopping $99,995.

While some customers might balk at the nearly six-figure price tag, the model costs significantly less than the GT 63 Coupe Four-Door Coupe. That particular car starts at $137,495 which makes the GT 53 seem like a downright bargain.

Of course, there are some pretty big differences between the two models and the largest change is under the hood. Where the GT 63 has a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine pumping out 577 hp (430 kW / 585 PS) and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of torque, the GT 53 comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six producing 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque. However, it’s backed up by a small electric motor that contributes an additional 21 hp (15 kW / 21 PS) and 184 lb-ft (249 Nm) of torque.

The powertrain is connected to a nine-speed transmission and an AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km) in 4.4 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).

The Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4-Door Coupe will arrive at U.S. dealerships this spring and come standard with an electronically-deployable rear spoiler, an AMG Ride Control sport suspension and six-piston front brake calipers with a silver painted finish. The model will also have GPS navigation and a Burmester surround sound system.

Note: Prices include a $995 destination and delivery charge

      Boy racer mentality.
      Not everyone needs a car as powerful as the 63s, a 53 would do just fine.
