Mercedes-AMG will reveal its standalone sedan at subsequent month’s
2018 Geneva Worldwide Motor Present, forward of an anticipated
market launch late this summer time.

Curiously, the Affalterbach tuner is referring to the automobile as
the “GT Coupe,” regardless of prototypes confirming the automobile will come
with 4 doorways and a rear hatch. It follows guardian firm
Mercedes-Benz’s penchant of calling something with a low roof a
coupe, therefore the
naming of even Four-door SUVs as coupes.

No additional data has been revealed although we have already got
a good suggestion of what to anticipate from the reveal of the
GT sedan idea eventually yr’s Geneva present and the

As a substitute of using a stretched model of the GT sports activities automobile’s
aluminum spaceframe structure, the brand new sedan is extra doubtless
to trip on the MRA rear-wheel-drive structure widespread to
common Mercedes fashions like the newest C- and E-Class. It’s
attainable AMG will make modifications to strengthen the
structure and maybe scale back weight.

Below the hood will sit AMG’s acquainted Four.Zero-liter
twin-turbocharged V-Eight, which ought to ship over 500
horsepower. We do not count on the hybrid system previewed within the
idea to be accessible at launch. The system, which pairs the
V-Eight with an electrical motor mounted on the rear, delivers 805 hp
and thus will doubtless be reserved for a range-topping variant.
