Mercedes-AMG GT Concept is the Sexy 4-Door the Panamera Never Was



Quote:
Although the Porsche Panamera looks better now than it ever has, it still cant touch a new concept from Mercedes in terms of sex appeal.

Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show, the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept is what happens when you take the already stunning AMG GT sports car and add two more doors. Getting the proportions just right and adding a fastback design, this four-door coupe looks promising, and although it is just a concept made in celebration of Mercedes-AMGs 50th anniversary, it hints at what Mercedes has planned for its upcoming Porsche Panamera fighter.

One key aspect of this Mercedes-AMG GT Concept (besides the fact that it has four doors) is the EQ Power+ designation, which confirms that the German sports car brand is looking at electrification and hybrdization for its future models. All performance hybrids from AMG will carry this EQ Power+ designation.

This concept uses a unique combination of a gas-powered 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, a high-performance electric motor, and a powerful yet lightweight battery to get a total system output of 805 horsepower. The concept can be driven in full electric mode, full gas mode, or as a hybrid and uses F1-derived technology. Mercedes-AMG expects the car, which they call a four-door sports car, to hit 60 mph in under three seconds.

The concept takes a lot of technology and design from the racing-inspired AMG GT R like the centrally mounted exhaust and active radiator shutters. The side mirrors have also been replaced by cameras, a lot of carbon fiber is used, and the concept gets high-tech, three-dimensional animated headlights. The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept is all-wheel drive, with the rear wheels being powered by the electric motor. Torque vectoring will also help handling and maneuverability.

Expect a production version of the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept to debut sometime next year.
