As the first four-door AMG GT model it combines high everyday comfort with diverse individualisation options and the latest sports vehicle engineering. 4-Door Coupe? That's the best they could come up with? The 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine will be offered in two states of tune. The lower-powered GT 63 (non "S") manages 0-100 kph in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 310 kph.
AMG's designers have done an excellent job of making sure the 4-door GT looks like a proper AMG.
We've been waiting for it for a full year - at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show the company introduced the spectacular Mercedes-AMG GT Concept - and now the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is gracing us with its presence and up to 630 hp. It delivers up to 68.9 mpg on the combined cycle, with a top speed of 125 miles per hour.
This is closely followed by the AMG GT 63 4MATIC+ with 585 hp, the V8 unit provides 585 hp and 800 Nm maximum torque.
The third engine option on offer will be the 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine which is a hybrid. The AMG GT 63 will do the sprint in 3.3 seconds, with the 53 getting there in 4.4 seconds.
To make sure the four-door GT could hold its own on a race track, AMG says it engineered an exceptionally stiff chassis, even using a rear anti-roll bar from the GT R. The six-cylinder version uses steel springs and adaptive dampers, and the V-8s get AMG's multi-chamber air suspension for even sportier handling. Now endowed with 385 horsepower, the freshly invigorated mill will turn its newfound grunt into forward motion with the help of Mercedes-AMG's rear-biased 4Matic all-wheel-drive system and nine-speed automatic transmission. For those who want to be able to drift, there's a Drift Mode, standard on the 63 S and optional on the other two versions.
But it wouldn't be an AMG model without some extra sports focus, and the 4-door includes a limited-slip differential on the rear axle, active rear-wheel steering and a high-performance braking system. These include the infotainment system, connectivity options and other operation controls for the auto.
Those are impressive numbers for a high-performance sports auto, but the GT 4-Door is set apart from other full-blooded AMG models by offering seating for four (up to five in Europe) and a hatchback. Rear-seat options for the US include a pair of non-folding carbon-fiber-backed seats and a 40/20/40-split, folding "executive" backseat that's also available with its own touchscreen and controls. This one though has its sights set on the Aston Martin Rapide, Maserati Quattroporte, and Porsche Panamera in the fast luxury saloon segment.
