When it was launched in 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT inevitably entered Mercedes SL territory. In unique, the roadster variation straight attacked the Mercedes SL. Presently, the Mercedes-AMG GT roadster and coupe can no more time be requested as their production has ended.

Mercedes is dropping the roadster variation of the Mercedes-AMG GT to prevent competing internally with the Mercedes-AMG SL but will present a new generation for the coupe. The 2nd generation coupe will be based mostly on the new MSA (Modular Sports Architecture) platform made use of in the SL.

Platform from Mercedes-AMG SL
Consequently, the impending AMG GT coupe, codenamed C192, is made fully by AMG and is dependent on alu room body construction bolstered with a combination of steel, magnesium and carbon. Therefore, the Mercedes-AMG GT does absent with the transaxle system wherever the engine was found at the front and the gearbox was mounted at the rear in a common housing with the differential for the reason that in the new AMG GT the motor and gearbox are located at the front.

Mercedes has dropped the transaxle remedy in purchase to present all-wheel travel which will be normal. The drivetrain will benefit from an adaptive suspension with steel springs and energetic anti-roll bars. Also, the integral steering will be in the menu. The GT’s suspension is envisioned to be tuned even far more firmly than the SL’s. Mercedes will situation the approaching Mercedes-AMG GT a person step increased on the sportiness scale in comparison to the SL.

The inside will be similar to the new SL with the next-era MBUX program and 11.9-inch portrait display. On the outside, the coupe’s roofline draws a longer, sloping line that extends further in direction of the rear. Guiding the door windows there will be a small triangular window. Otherwise, the GT will be comparable to the SL. Slight variances in the radiator grille and headlamps are to be envisioned nevertheless.

V8 engines for certain, 4-cylinder probable
Like the SL, the upcoming GT will debut with V8 petrol engines. In 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT was the initial design to get the new 4-litre twin-turbo V8. Given that then, this engine has been created in several versions. In 2023 the GT will have 585 HP in the 63 variation and 476 HP in the 53 edition, both of those variations mated to the AMG Speedshift 9-velocity automatic transmission.

Mercedes is positioning the GT increased than the SL and consequently could not present the new 4-cylinder  motor with electric turbo not too long ago launched in the Mercedes-AMG SL 43. On the other hand, the GT will compete with the Porsche 911 and as a result getting far more versions and masking a wider electrical power spectrum is valuable. If Mercedes decides to use the 4-cylinder model, it is predicted to have more energy as the new electric turbo motor that will also be employed in the impending C 63 AMG however has ample energy reserves.

Additional plausible is the offer of a prime version of the Mercedes-AMG GT 73 e equipped with the PHEV technique from the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance which could build in excess of 800 hp. The Mercedes-AMG GT will debut in 2023.
