New Mercedes-AMG GT emphasises sporty genes

The new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door model, which “delivers driving experiences in new dimensions and extends the AMG model family”, is now available at Nasser Bin Khaled (NBK) Automobiles, the authorised general distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Qatar.
The NBK Automobiles Mercedes-Benz showroom is located on Salwa Road.
“The new coupé is the first four-door sports car from Affalterbach and draws directly on the legendary SLS and AMG GT models of success. As another vehicle developed autonomously by Mercedes-AMG, it combines unique design, high comfort and outstanding sports car engineering with an athletic, four-door fastback layout. It, thus, offers more space and more potential uses,” a press statement notes.
Systematic expansion of the AMG GT family with the 4-door coupé opens up the sports car segment to those looking for a vehicle for day-to-day use, but are unwilling to go without the “unparalleled performance of Mercedes-AMG”.
“Longitudinal and lateral dynamics at the highest level, and a striking silhouette with classic proportions put the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé in the portfolio of its two-door brother at first glance. The expressive design with the low bonnet, dominant front and muscular body language emphasises the sporty genes of the four-door coupé, which sets new standards as the youngest model in the AMG family. As the first four-door AMG GT model, it combines high everyday comfort with diverse individualisation options and the latest sports car engineering,” the statement adds.
The interior of the first four-door AMG GT model “is characterised by elegant coolness and also the latest features”: innovative control panels can be intuitively operated and configured as required.
Clearly recognisable as a member of the AMG GT family, the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé follows the design philosophy of ‘Sensual Purity’. It takes the striking proportions with convex surfaces and a muscular body and develops them to exciting effect for a four-door variant of an AMG GT Coupé.
The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine is already used in numerous AMG models. Its output has been enhanced further for the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ (fuel consumption combined 11.2l/100km, CO2 emissions combined 257g/km) and ensures superior performance on a par with a sports car. It delivers 470kW (639hp) and a maximum torque of 900Nm, which is available over a wide engine speed range from 2,500-4,500rpm.
The top engine of the new four-door AMG GT “exudes effortless superiority in every engine speed range”. Acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds clearly illustrates this, as does the maximum speed of 315km/h.
In the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC+ (fuel consumption combined 11.0l/100km, CO2 emissions combined 252-256g/km) the V8 unit provides 430kW (585hp) and 800Nm maximum torque. The sprint from standstill to 100km/h lasts just 3.4 seconds, and the top speed is 310km/h.
The AMG 4.0-litre V8 engine works with the proven biturbocharging, where the two exhaust-gas turbochargers are arranged not on the exterior, but between the cylinder banks. The advantages of the ‘hot inner V’ are in the compact engine design and the immediate response of the exhaust-gas turbochargers.
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G 9-speed transmission is specially tuned to the requirements of the eight-cylinder variants of the new four-door AMG GT. A wet clutch is used here, which reduces weight and inertia and optimises the response. There is also a RACE START function, ensuring optimum acceleration.
Meanwhile, the driver and front passenger seats can be configured in different scenarios. The selection ranges from the sporty, comfortable
seat and a seat with elegant diamond quilting to an “extremely contoured” performance seat with an integral head restraint. The four-door AMG GT also offers different seating configurations to meet all demands for the rear, too. These range from an asymmetrically folding rear bench seat for the family to two variants with two individual seats, respectively.
