We’re discussing the production variation of AMG’s GT sedan principle that was unveiled at 2017 Geneva auto show, and judging by our most current spy shots the production model will closely resemble the scintillating idea. Interestingly, Mercedes will be launching a new generation of its CLS around the very same time that AMG’s GT4 will be arriving, so there will be a little bit of internal competition going on. Other rivals will include the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and Porsche Panamera.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Design
The style is stemmed from the sexy lines of the GT sports car, although the headlights take on a more angular shape and the length of the hood has been shortened. Obviously, the wheelbase has likewise been extended and an extra pair of doors added. The massive rear spoiler has been added to conceal the real shape of the fastback profile. We just need take a look at the concept to gauge exactly what the designers are preparing. Instead of utilizing an extended variation of the GT cars’s aluminum spaceframe architecture, the sedan is most likely to ride on the MRA rear-wheel-drive architecture common to routine Mercedes-Benz models like the current C- and E-Class. It’s possible AMG will make adjustments to strengthen the architecture and perhaps reduce some weight.
Much like its exterior, the sedan’s interior should imitate the AMG GT’s from the front seats onward. I want the exact same beautiful “aviation design” theme with its wide, wing-like dashboard and center-mounted, spotlight-style vents to sit in front of the motorist and front traveler, separated by the motorsport-inspired center console and its V-8-like design for the AMG Drive Unit controls. The stylish and elegant style would continue behind the front seats, although legroom and headroom may be a bit cramped for taller adults. On the other hand, the various connection features and access to the car’s infotainment system must make trips satisfying for rear travelers nevertheless.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Engine
Under the hood will sit AMG’s familiar twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 providing in the area of 500 horse power. We’re not expecting the hybrid system previewed in the principle to be offered at launch. The system, which pairs the V-8 with an electric motor mounted at the back, provides 805 hp and thus will likely be booked for a range-topping version.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT4 Release Date
Search for the car, which is rumored to be called a GT 4, to go on sale in 2019. This means we’ll likely see it arrive as a 2020 model. It will be AMG’s third standalone model after the GT cars and Project One hypercar, which will have been launched already.
