Mercedes-AMG has created its first 4-door model, the AMG GT 4-Door Coupé. Expansion of the AMG GT family with the 4-door Coupé opens up the sports car segment to those looking for a car with daily driver practicality, but unwilling to go without the high-performance appeal of Mercedes-AMG.

“The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé blends the impressive racetrack dynamism of our two-door sports car with maximum suitability for everyday use,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG. “It has a unique way of embodying our brand core, ‘Driving Performance’ and with its systematic configuration it will attract new customers for Mercedes-AMG”.

The AMG GT 4-Door Coupé will be available as the GT 53 4MATIC with a 435 hp 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder engine which can accelerate from 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.5 seconds; the GT 63 4MATIC with a 585 hp 4.0 liter V8 which can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds; or the GT 63 S 4MATIC with a 639 hp 4.0 liter V8 which can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed is 315 km/h (195 mph).

The two V8 models can be identified by the three horizontal louvres in the side front air intakes, the Jet Wing with its trim element in Silver Shadow, the distinctive diffuser on the tail end and the two-pipe exhaust system with trapezoidal tailpipe trims. The six-cylinder model has one louvre in each of the air inlet grilles, round twin tailpipe trims and a less pronounced rear diffuser.

For maximum fuel efficiency, Mercedes-AMG has also equipped the V8 engines with the AMG Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation system. In the partial-load range, cylinders two, three, five and eight are deactivated, which reduces the fuel consumption.

Clearly recognisable as a member of the AMG GT family, the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé follows the design philosophy of ‘Sensual Purity’ for a four-door variant of an AMG GT Coupé. It has a long hood, two powerdomes, convex surfaces, radiator shutters, Airpanel in front of the centre cooling air inlet, slim Multibeam LED headlamps, AMG-specific radiator protection grille, Shark Nose and the front apron with its enhanced Jet Wing with a flowing A-Wing on the six-cylinder model. With frameless side windows and a flat windshield it has a classic coupé architecture. The rear view of the new 4-door coupé picks up on familiar features of the AMG GT with extremely slim LED tail lights and rear aerofoil which is extendable in several stages.

“The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is the ultimate four-door sports car and the ideal ambassador for Performance Luxury”, said Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG. “It embodies a symbiosis of emotion and intelligence with breathtaking proportions and a puristic, surface-oriented design with sensuous shapes. It is both hot and cool at the same time.”
