Mercedes' Geneva Motor Show. So we're pretty darn stoked to learn that a production version will debut in just a few weeks.was one of the highlights of last year's
Three images, available in the gallery below, accompany a short announcement from Mercedes-Benz, confirming the company's plans to show the four-door GT at the 2018 Geneva show.
Shortly before its world premiere in Geneva, numerous trial vehicles of the new, four-door Mercedes-AMG sports car are undergoing testing all over the world. With the new model, the sports car and performance brand in Affalterbach is adding a four-door coupe to the AMG GT family.
This might not "just" be a four-door GT, either. Remember, the 2017 Geneva concept was actually a hybrid, wearing EQ Power+ graphics. With the combination of a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 and an electric motor at the rear axle, the GT Concept was said to have as much as 805 horsepower and be capable of sprinting to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds.
Whether or not that performance lunacy comes to fruition on the production AMG GT sedan remains to be seen. But given Mercedes put 48-volt hybrid technology in, we won't rule out some sort of electrification for this new brute.
Expect the production car to look similar to the concept, too. The aggressive nose and understated rear end appear to have carried over largely unchanged. Of course, the side-mounted cameras have been replaced by actual DOT-approved mirrors. And thankfully, those horrible (and massive) chrome wheels are nowhere to be found.
Check back for the full four-door AMG GT details in just a few weeks.
