If you haven’t heard yet, Mercedes are currently working on a four-door sports car based on the AMG GT. Presently referred to as the AMG GT4, the German brand has yet to reveal when exactly we’ll see it in full production trim.
However, recent spy shots of the model appear almost production ready and we must admit the green flames on black looks fantastic.
We’re still waiting on Mercedes to confirm a powertrain for the four-door sports car. Select sources in the automotive world indicate a 4.0-litre BiTurbo V8 petrol engine is the most likely candidate. In the hands of the E63 S, that motor produces a desirable 603 horsepower. A hybrid version is also said to be on the table and was also present when Mercedes previewed the AMG GT4. With a claimed 800 hp racing through its veins, Mercedes are taking the luxury four-door sports car fight straight to the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid and its 671 horses.
AMG GT4 may not be the final name
As much as the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT4 has been making the rounds since the car first made headlines all the way back in 2016, there’s a high possibility that it won’t be the final name in order not to cause any confusion with the AMG GT4 race car of the same name.
With Geneva just around the corner, we’ll have to wait and see what the German manufacturer has in store for the motoring world.
