Rendered Speculation: 2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

Article by Christian A., on February 3, 2014

Quattroute, the well-known Italian auto magazine, released some interesting renderings with the upcoming Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. For those who still don’t know, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is a rival to the Porsche 911 and will hit the dealerships in 2015, while the official debut will be made in mid-2014.

As expected, the vehicle will take some styling cues from the impressive SLS AMG but according to Mercedes-Benz design chief Gorden Wagener it will be the most beautiful car to wear the three-pointed star.

Under the hood, the new coupe will use a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates around 400 hp in the base version, 500 in the most powerful version and 570 hp on the Black Series version.

The new 4.0-liter V8 replaces the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 (found on the SLS AMG) and its successor, the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8. The new engine will use the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission.

Regarding the performances, we expect the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 4.0 seconds, while the top speed will certainly be over 300 km/h (186 mph).
