Article by Christian Andrei, on May 20, 2014

[UPDATE: The new sports car was officially revealed, read all about it here!] - We already know that the SLS AMG will have a successor and will be called the Mercedes-AMG GT as the German manufacturer released the first interior photos back in April. Today, Mercedes-Benz launched the special website of its new sports car and a new photo showing the side of the car as well as an official video were released.

According to Mercedes-Benz, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT will be revealed this autumn and will thrill with breathtaking and supreme agility. What we do know until now, is that the new coupe will be powered by a newly developed 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will deliver 400 hp in the standard model, 500 hp in the most powerful version and around 570 hp in the Black Series version.

The new twin-turbo V8 will replace the 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 found in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that powers most of the AMG models. The new 4.0-liter V8 is expected to use the same AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.

Although we don’t have a clue regarding the design of the new Mercedes-AMG GT, from the new photo released by the German carmaker we can see that the new model follows the same design line found on the SLS AMG featuring a long hood where the V8 engine is.

Inside, there are several design elements introduced by the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class as the new Mercedes-AMG GT comes with the Comand infotainment system, a touchpad controller as well as high-quality materials.

Mercedes-Benz will reveal new details in June, while the specifications are expected to be released in July and August. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz will be officially introduced to the world at the 2014 Paris Motor Show!
