Mercedes-AMG, unveiled the production version of its AMG GT Four-Door Coupe today in Geneva. This is a car that can be a sophisticated, luxurious mild hybrid, or an absolute monster of a performance sedan. This is a car that now sets the benchmark for Mercedes-AMG sports cars.
The most powerful version of AMG’s four-door coupe will use the biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine, producing in that case 630hp and 663lb-ft of peak torque. With the kind help of the trick all-wheel drive system, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S is capable of pulling a 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, while flat out it’ll do 195mph.
Opt for the “plain” 63 model and you’ll get 577 horsepower and 553 lb-ft. AMG claims the GT63 can charge to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 193 mph. All models in the Mercedes AMG GT 4 lineup are fitted with the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive which continuously computes the best torque split between axles, depending on driving conditions and the driver’s inputs.
Regardless of model, all AMG GT 4-Door models have a superb interior that combines top-notch luxury with Mercedes’ latest tech, dual 12.3-inch display screens, one occupying the typical place in the center of the dash and the other functioning as a configurable instrument cluster. Capacitive switches on the center console include proximity sensors that detect when a finger is drawing near and can then display the corresponding menu in the main two infotainment screens—an attempt to reduce eyes-off-the-road time.
It kind of looks like an evolution of the AMG GT Coupe, with a wide, raked center console that houses controls for things like stop/start, stability control, and more. The interior is characterized by an elegant coolness, as well as a blend of personality and technology.
