Mercedes-AMG big boss Tobias Moers drops heavy hints about AMG GT4

The man sitting at the top of the performance division of Mercedes-BenzTobias Moers – cryptically indicated that the Mercedes-AMG GT4 could be really coming.

Moers, chief executive of Mercedes-AMG, was answering several questions from Australian automotive Web site Motoring when he gave an ambiguous declaration about the AMG GT4. When pressed to respond to speculations of an upcoming AMG GT4, Moers replied that rumors are not necessarily wrong.

Based on his enigmatic statement, we can surmise that some of the rumored details are true and others aren’t. So, what information – rumors or not – do we have so far about this high-performance premium sedan that would serve as AMG’s new range topper?

Speculated as Mercedes’ answer to the Porsche Panamera luxury high-performance sedan as well as the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, the Mercedes-AMG GT4 has been rumored to be primed for a grand introduction in 2019, or around two years from now. It would follow the launch of the next generation of the Mercedes CLS, which will arrive in 2018.

We could expect the new AMG GT4 to be underpinned by a modified variant of the MRA platform that also underpins the current generation of the C Class, E Class and S Class. It may feature the hardware of the next generation of the CLS but with different panels for a distinct appearance. AMG is well expected to keep the basic architecture of the next-gen CLS while employing a new body design that is sportier and more dynamic.

The platform and other underpinnings are expected to be made from high-strength steel and more aluminum. We could expect AMG to employ aluminum as the main material for the body of the new AMG GT4 as part of efforts to keep the new model as light as possible.

As part of its sportier dynamics, the AMG GT4 could feature shorter overhangs than on the CLS. There were reports saying that the overhangs on the AMG GT4 would be around 100 mm shorter than on the CLS. Despite the shorter overhangs, the AMG GT4 would remain as a full-sized GT that could comfortably accommodate four passengers along with their luggage.

In terms of power, the rumored AMG GT4 is expected to be pulled by a more powerful version of the 4.0-liter V8 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Output could be as high as 600 hp, matched by a high level of torque for excellent acceleration from standstill.

But then, AMG has said nothing about the new AMG GT4. Moers’ comment doesn’t officially confirm its arrival and it is up to us to determine whether there is indeed some truth to the possibility of the AMG GT4.

NAIAS: Mercedes-AMG celebrates 50th anniversary with unveiling of 2018 AMG GT C Coupe

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of Mercedes-AMG, the performance division of Mercedes-Benz is unveiling the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Coupe at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show.

Slotted between the range-topping AMG GT R coupe and the GT S, the new GT C coupe is basically the hard-top (solid roof) version of the AMG GT C Roadster – with several similarities in looks and specs.

However, the new GT C coupe is only available as special Edition 50 model.

2019 Mercedes-Benz SL will share platform with the AMG GT

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL is reportedly to share the same platform with an Mercedes-AMG GT. Not exactly the one you’ve seen on the photos that have previously surfaced on the Internet. Speculations developed after a supposedly shorter SL Coupe was caught being tested at the Green Hell several weeks ago. But recent reports suggest otherwise.

Autocar says that Mercedes-Benz is now considering an AMG GT platform and will likely come with four types of engines. It is also believed that the SL65 and SL600’s V12 engines may no longer be included in their options. This is probably because of the stricter guidelines with regard to emissions.

Instead, there’s going to be a choice between the E63’s 603hp 5.5 litre V8 twin turbocharger, a couple of turbocharged 6-cylinders with either 450hp or 402 hp and a 470hp 4.0 litre V8.

As reported, the 7th gen SL currently being developed under AMG would be just like the recently launched GT Roadster. But due to its aluminium body frame and carbon fibre torque tube, the upcoming roadster would be so much lighter as compared with the on-going R231 model.

The significant amount of weight reduced will surely improve its performance and fuel economy. Reports also say that there’s a chance that the 2019 SL and GT Roadster will have the same double wishbone suspension. Although it will be slightly modified to better adapt to the SL’s usual setup. A grand tourer-style air suspension is very likely to come as well but is yet to be confirmed.

Moreover, instead of giving it the R232 product code, the new SL is believed to bear the R233 codename. If this were true, then we can only expect the 2019 SL to be very different from the current model. This includes the hard top roof being replaced by soft top fabric cover. A coupe body style is likely being considered to go along with the new roadster. But Mercedes-Benz hasn’t confirmed anything whether or not a fixed metal roof is already on the line.

If ever, it would be the first time that both soft and hard top cover will be offered on the segment. Overall, Mercedes-Benz is obviously running a more cost efficient approach for using AMG-GT’s hardware platform. With that being the case, it would be simpler for them to develop the new SL model in time for 2019. The increased level of production will provide more choices of variants, which could possibly include a Black Series

Luethen Motorsport’s tuning program for Mercedes-AMG GT makes it race-ready

Since its release in 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT has been one of the favorite cars of tuners around the world, especially those from Germany. While Mercedes has been updating the AMG-GT with variants like the GT R and the GT S, it has not stopped tuners to create their own versions of this elegantly powerful performer.

Now, Luethen Motorsport of Hamburg, Germany has just revealed its own interpretation of a tuned Mercedes-AMG GT, and this car is ready to race. Yes, the Luethen Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT is an elegant premium coupe that is not just powerful, but is also ready take on the track, thanks to a plethora of upgrades made on this already dynamic car.

One of the main areas of upgrades made by Luethen Motorsport to the Mercedes-AMG GT is the addition of a new engine control unit or ECU. Without this upgrade, the Mercedes-AMG GT’s 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine only delivers 462 hp of max output and 600 Nm (440 lb-ft.) of peak torque and helps achieve a top speed of 189 mph.

But with Luethen Motorsport’s ECU upgrade, the V8 engine now provides up to 612 hp of output and up to 780 Nm (575 lb-ft.) of torque, helping the AMG GT reach a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). This means that Luethen Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT is even more powerful than the up and coming performance-laden 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R, which has an engine that can develop 577 hp of max output and 700 Nm (520 lb-ft.).

To further improve the downforce and increase the cooling new Luethen Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT, it was fitted with a complete aerodynamic styling kit made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic. This aerodynamic styling kit includes a new front spoiler lip with an integrated splitter as well as boundary layer winglets and intake brows. The aerodynamic styling kit likewise covers a new rear adjustable spoiler wing placed above an underbody spoiler as well as new side skirts. These CRFP aero components could be finished in a color picked by the customer.

To realize a good balance between performance and handling, Luethen Motorsport installed its own sport springs on the Mercedes-AMG GT, instead of opting for motorsport suspension. These springs also allowed Luethen Motorsport to lower the ride height of Mercedes-AMG GT.

Of course, the Luethen Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT is provided with new bespoke forged wheels in the guise of Luethen Motorsport Series-1 wheels with sizes 10.0 x 20 on the front and 11.0 x 21 at the rear. Wheels in size 12.0 x 21 wheels are also optionally available. These forged wheels – which could be finished in standard colors or in any shade preferred by customers – are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires in sizes 265/30 ZR20 (front) and 305/25 ZR21 (rear).

Luethen Motorsport’s Mercedes-AMG GT is available as a full upgrade package or as individual accessories.

Mercedes-AMG finally races along with other car manufacturers in the GT4 category. Since there’s an increasing trend for this segment, we think they’ve made it just in time along with Ford, Porsche, McLaren and also BMW.

Even if it comes a little late, the new GT4 racer will be based on the Mercedes-AMG GT-R that was revealed earlier this year. Mercedes-AMG’s GT4 racecar is currently in the works and is expected to apply the road-going GTR’s engineering and design standards.

The picture already looks impressive. With its large wing, wheels out stance, big vents along the hood and highly distinctive aerodynamics design, the AMG GTR definitely looks menacing the first time we saw it. Even so, AMG revealed that they have designed the GT4 to be safe and easy to use.

According to Mercedes AMG’s statement, their newest “top athlete” will be designed with the highest level of “user friendliness” and safety in mind as with any AMG products they have developed.

The regular GT-R as we know uses a 577hp 4.0litre V8 biturbo engine and weighs a total of 1554kg. Though no words are given out on the exact figures, the GT4 racer will be a lot more different. In fact, most of the details are still hanging, as it wasn’t stated in the press whether it would be using the GT3’s 6.2 litre V8 or the road car’s engine.

From what we know, the track-ready 4.0 litre with twin turbochargers can produce 700Nm of torque output and can speed off from 0-100km/hour in as short as 3.6 seconds. Plus, it boasts a top speed of up to 318 kilometres per hour.

Whatever the case may be, Mercedes did the right thing to boost its global presence in motorsports. The new AMG GT3 is expected to launch in the US next year and will be taking part in the IMSA WeatherTech series. In partnership with Riley Motorsports, AMG will compete for the two-car team after successfully competing in endurance racing in Europe.

Of course, the GT4 “competition” also heats up after McLaren, BMW and Ford came up with their own GT4-spec racers. Its rivals include McLaren’s 570S, BMW’s M4 and the Ford Mustang among many others.

Tobias Moers, Mercedes AMG chairman explained how the development of the GT4 is considered a significant step for them to carry on with the expansion of their motorsport program. The overwhelming feedback that they had been receiving from the Customer teams on the AMG GT3 not to mention their growing interest on GT4 racing have helped them arrive to this decision.

If an actual racing team commences a project to beef up an already sporty car, impressive results can be expected. Well, any of the stock Mercedes-Benz AMG GT (GT, GT S, GT R, GT S) is already a potent car to begin with. Each version has a different power output, with the GT model developing 456 hp and the newest GT R (2017 model year) delivering 577 hp.

Dime Racing, an actual AMG racing team with a base in Southern California Dime, has an SLS AMG competing in the Pirelli World Challenge. It is also a specialist that supplies the auto industry with engineered components and system, as well as services. Now, Dime Racing is announcing a tuning kit for the AMG GT, plus an actual watch that goes with it. This new kit promises a street-legal AMG GT that could deliver an astonishing 745 hp – the Racing GT.

As for the number of units that will be available to customers, Dime will be just assembling 100 vehicles each year, ensuring that every unit comes with a top-notch quality. The Racing GT limited edition model could be availed at select Mercedes-AMG dealers across the United States. Expect true reliability from these Racing GT models, since, after all, Dime Racing is an authentic racing team with genuine expertise and experience in competitive racing.

Dime Racing has provided only a few details about the Racing GT. However, pictures show a number of aerodynamic components already installed into the body of the AMG GT. These components include a Dime-designed large rear spoiler as well as new set of wheels measuring 19 inches (or maybe 20 inches) in diameter.

Of course, it is only logical to think that to draw out a superior power performance, Dime has made several significant changes to AMG GT’s 4.0-liter biturbo V-8 engine. Dime’s engine kit could include upgrades to the turbochargers, cooling and injection systems as well as a remapping of the ECU unit.

This is what could have allowed the V-8 engine to be capable of delivering 745 hp of max output and 731 lb-ft of peak torque. This is more than the 730 hp of output from the engine tuned by Masonry. Since Mansory claims that its tuning program for the Mercedes-AMG GT allows the sports car to sprint from zero to 60 mph in around 3.4 seconds, Dime’s Racing GT should be able to achieve the same or a better acceleration figure.

Aside from a significantly tuned engine and new aerodynamics, the Racing GT also features Dime’s in-house suspension as well as a new cooling package.

The entire tuning program for the AMG GT is available at around $150,200. This program also includes a bumper-to-bumper warranty as well as a Stefan Johansson Vaxjo watch.

Who are the world’s bravest test drivers? They may be those testing high-speed racing prototypes on a circuit. Or they may be those assessing the agility of test cars on high-speed corners deep in the mountains.

But for German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz, the bravest test drivers in the world don’t even have a driving license. In fact, they are more than a decade away from the age when they could get their driving license.

The world’s bravest test drivers are toddlers, and Mercedes-Benz got the perfect test car for them, recently unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. For Mercedes-Benz, a small child is never too young is experience a bit of luxury and sportiness. The brand proved this point literally by introducing the new Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car -- a new, single-seater sports car designed particularly for small kids.

The first Bobby-Car was launched in 1972, produced by German toy maker BIG. By forging several partnerships with carmakers, BIG has produced over 100 versions over the years. Its collaboration with Mercedes alone has led to the creation of three generations of SLK and the SLS AMG Bobby-Cars. To date, around 17 million Bobby-Cars have been the first cars of the world’s bravest test drivers.

Now, Mercedes is offering two versions of the new Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car, both boasting of a “powerful drive system” and “superb maneuverability” – well at least enough for toddlers to move around the living room or around the lawn.

The classic silver version of the new Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car is modeled after the standard Mercedes-AMG GT. It is specified with detailed lights and cross-spoke wheels wrapped in “whisper” tires that allow for “outstanding grip” and “agile dynamics.” The silver Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car also features a red seat cushion and silver inserts on the steering wheel.

On the other hand, the Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car is also available in a Solarbeam yellow version that is modeled after the sporty Mercedes-AMG GT S. This version features black wheels and LED headlights with daytime running lights and low-beam functions. It also features a detailed instrument cluster, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and a black seat cushion.

Also available is a special edition version that pays tribute to the German national football team while raising money for children's charities. As a special edition, only 1,000 units are available.

The new Mercedes-AMG GT Bobby-Car is suitable for children 18 months and above and can be availed at select toy retailers and Mercedes dealers. While assembly is required, this allows the stickers to be placed anywhere the kid prefers.

Mercedes-AMG is currently making great waves in the automotive scene. The German automaker Mercedes-Benz’s high performance division has been creating some of the most superb cars; however, this year, it has brought to the world another string of surprises. And guess what? It’s everything that comes at par (or even better) than its previous models.

Earlier this year, we were introduced to the Green Hell baby that was the Mercedes-AMG GT R. The “green hell magno” colored AMG GT R was developed at the famous Nurburgring racetrack, particularly at the Green Hell, where its twin-turbo V8 was tested to its limits.

It comes with 585 horses and around 516 lb.-ft. of torque. Aside from its engine, it is even made stronger because of its front-mid-engine concept with transaxle, an extensively modified suspension, new aerodynamics and is aided by its intelligent lightweight construction. It also comes with wider front and rear wings which give it an increased track width allowing optimum grip and higher cornering speeds. It also has standard lightweight forged wheels with cup tyres perfect for maximum driving dynamics.

Other features that maximize driving dynamics include an active rear-wheel steering, a nine-way adjustable traction control system and an adjustable coil-over suspension with additional electronic control. Its characteristic form with vertical fins as well as the Panamericana grille on the AMG GT R gives it an even more powerful and unique vibe. All these and more make the AMG GT R Coupe a complete standout in the automotive world.

However, it’s looking as if Mercedes-AMG isn’t going to stop there. Not long after the introduction of the AMG GT R, Mercedes-Benz’ high performance division presented another surprise that will blow your mind away just like the coupe.

This week, Mercedes-AMG revealed two exciting variants for roadster fans. Yes, you read it right. There will be two roadster variants of the AMG GT Coupe – the AMG GT Roadster and the AMG GT C Roadster. Let’s check these two out, shall we?

The two roasters are an addition to Mercedes-AMG’s growing GT family. Both come with fabric soft tops in three colors (black, red or beige) as well as the same “technical genes” which AMG has been known for. Specifically, the roadsters are made of the same hard but lightweight aluminium bodyshell as well as the very efficient twin-turbo V8 engines.

The AMG GT Roadster however offers 476 horsepower while the GT C Roadster comes with a more powerful 557 horses. The former can make a 0 to 62 mph sprint in 4.0 seconds while the more powerful GT C can go in only 3.7 seconds.

While there is a slight difference in power and acceleration time, both roadsters have adapted the seven-speed dual clutch transmission on rear-wheel drive. An AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller on the AMG GT Roadster gives the driver the freedom to choose three transmission modes: “C” for Comfort, “S” for Sport, “S+” for Sport Plus, and “I” for an individually programmable setup. These modes are also available on the GT C Roadster but with an additional “RACE” mode that optimally adjusts the shift strategy which includes faster shift speeds and highly emotive engine sound. An “M” button on the center console of the GT C also allows the driver to activate the manual transmission mode.

The active air management system on the AMG GT R is also being adopted on both of the roadster variants. In the lower area behind the front fascia, vertical louvres have been installed to ensure maximum cooling airflow especially during predefined temperatures and high air requirement. The louvres are closed during normal driving to reduce aerodynamic drag and to allow air to flow through the underbody.

The AMG Panamerican grille, the long, muscular bonnet and wide rear ends are also adopted by both roadsters for an added sports car experience. The 15 chrome-plated, vertical bars are similar to the current Mercedes-AMG GT3 while the new front apron gives emphasis to the roadster’s width and a four-square appearance. Large outer air inlets are installed to allow cooling air to supply its engine. Structure-wise, the AMG GT and GT C Roadsters are made of various aluminium alloys on its chassis and body while the front deck is made of magnesium which reduces inertia ahead of the front axle and thus improves agility.

To continue AMG’s motor racing heritage, the two roadsters also have AMG sports suspensions such as wishbones, steering knuckles and hub carriers on the front and rear axle. All these are made of forged aluminium that helps reduce unsprung masses and deliver high cornering speeds.

The AMG GT C is by far the most powerful amongst the roadster variants, with it making use of some of the technical refinements of the AMG GT R – the active rear axle steering and electronic rear axle locking differential. With the help of the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, wider rear wings and wider wheels at the rear axle, dynamic performance increases.

Moreover, the GT C has standard nappa leather interior and an AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfiber. Even without all the muscle that is on the AMG GT C Roadster, the AMG Roadster comes with a redeeming factor -- a variable performance exhaust system that makes it easier for us to hear its V8 engine roar.

Mercedes-AMG will unveil its latest surprise for the 2015 motorsport season at the Geneva Motor Show – the V8-powered Mercedes-AMG GT3. Developed and built to comply with the FIA's GT3 race rules, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 will be delivered to first customer teams at the end of 2015. This racing vehicle is derived from the Mercedes-AMG GT that will be launched in just a few days.

It provides promising prospects for customer teams, as it was derived from the proven and tested excellent racetrack performance of the standard GT. The standard Mercedes-AMG GT is the ideal basis for the GT3 racing model, thanks to its low center of gravity, perfect distribution of weight and wide track width.

This means precise cornering properties, high lateral acceleration, first-class agility, a high level of traction and low inertia -- attributes necessary for gaining top placements. Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, remarked that the high technological standard and fair race rules are spurring the company on “to push to take pole position” with its new customer racing car – Mercedes-AMG GT3.

The new racing car features matt paintwork in designo selenite grey magno. It also features a widened body, large air intakes, the diffuser and the huge rear aerofoil. Just like the road-going version, the GT3 boasts of a structure consists of a very lightweight yet extremely rigid aluminum space frame, which should provide excellent protection for the driver.

Driver protection is further enhanced by its carbon-fiber seat pan and an integral roll-over cage made from high-tensile steel. Mercedes-AMG was able to further trim the GT3’s weight by making these parts -- engine cover, doors, front wing, front and rear aprons, sidewalls, side skirts, diffuser, boot lid and rear aerofoil -- made from lightweight yet high-strength carbon-fiber.

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 is powered by the improved AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine seen on the SLS AMG GT3. This high-revving naturally aspirated engine boasts of low running costs, user-friendly technology, excellent reliability and long maintenance intervals. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential racing gearbox, which is mounted in a transaxle configuration on the rear axle. [source: Daimler]
