The promised four-door coupe should offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain and more than 800 horsepower.
The Mercedes-AMG GT four-door coupe recently underwent a good facelift, the biggest attraction of which should be the more powerful version, which has not yet been presented. It must be used with the help of an electric motor and is probably the most powerful road AMG ever built in Affalterbach.
The automaker itself has already confirmed the creation of a plug-in hybrid top, which should receive an E-Performance panel. Now, however, the first movie has appeared on Mercedes-AMG’s official Instagram, revealing the best car ahead of its official premiere – scheduled for September 1 during IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich.
The first picture in the slide does not reveal any important news. The visor corresponds to an improved version of the GT 63 S, but the novelty is the edges of the intake hatches and a small plate in the radiator grille, which the automaker already indicated in previous renderings.
The automaker added a picture to the picture.The calm before the road– which can be translated as “calm before roaring” and therefore likely indicates the possibility of purely electric operation. The hashtag “#EverythingButQuiet” promises to preserve the tradition of proper performance of the internal combustion engine.
After all, it should be the most powerful AMG, which according to old speculation should be given the GT 73 e designation, with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, which will complement the rear-mounted electric motor powered by light batteries.
The combined car’s power should go up to 600 kW (about 816 hp) and 1,000 Nm of torque. The car should then be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, faster than a pure-burning GT 63 S.
The AMG GT 63 S is currently the fastest luxury four-door model in the famous Nürburgring, which, according to many predictions, could change the hybrid version of the 73e, which could be less than its time of 7: 27800. However, the main competitor to the GT 73e in In circles and in showrooms, it will most likely be the Porsche Panamera Turbo SE Hybrid.
For more detailed information about the new car, we will have to wait until the opening of the Munich Motor Show, where Mercedes plans a number of interesting and electric innovations. There is talk, for example, of the AMG version of the flagship EQS, the purely electric Maybach concept, the electric G-Class concept under the EQG name, the new EQE sedan and possibly an all-new smart crossover.
