Mercedes-Benz officially confirmed that the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT will be introduced on September 9. Unfortunately, the company didn’t reveal more details but we do know that the development of the Mercedes-AMG GT took 32 months and the vehicle was tested by 50 drivers in 15 countries and at temperatures between -30 to 50 degrees Celsius.

In addition, the German manufacturer unveiled the M178 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and said that it will deliver between 461 hp to 510 hp. As expected, the vehicle will use the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission, while power will be delivered to the rear wheels.

Same engine will also be used by the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Sedan, which is expected to arrive in October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

Other reports indicate that the Mercedes-AMG GT will receive a Black Series version that will offer around 570 hp. The twin-turbo V8 will replace the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine found on the outgoing SLS AMG but also the 5.5-liter V8 used by most of the current AMG models.

The Mercedes-AMG GT promises to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds, while offering a top speed in excess of 300 km/h or 186 mph.

Just like the new C63 AMG, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT will make its world debut in October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show as a direct rival to Porsche’s 911, one of the most competitive segment.
