Rendering of Mercedes-AMG GT Estate is exceptional

Article by Christian A., on May 18, 2017

When Mercedes-Benz unveiled the AMG GT Concept, it received positive reviews. Fans were praising it for the sweeping lines and the arching fastback shape, mirroring the CLS-Class. Even with the excellent acclaim, that did not stop fans from coming up with their own versions. The latest of this was posted at Behance, a site owned by Adobe.

Rendered by a certain Aksyonov Nikita, the AMG GT Concept is depicted as a wagon or estate. This particular version is truly excellent especially with the long roof. Being a wagon, the haunches in the rear are larger. This is complemented by fender flares, resulting in the render have a more natural look to it.

If anything, this version brings to mind the Panamera Sport Turismo of Porsche. It is interesting to note that the use of blue for the render makes it look like the long-roof blue Porsche, that same model unveiled along the AMG GT Concept during this year’s Geneva Auto Show. When the Sport Turismo was first revealed, it attracted a lot of attention especially in the high-performance and exotic class.

However, this could be due to how it has that interesting look that’s not quite similar to the style of a typical Panamera sedan. A lot of people like the Panamera but didn’t really have good things to say about the appearance. The Sport Turismo managed to address that particular issue.

Going back to the render at hand, there is no doubt that if Mercedes does decide to release a wagon version, customers would not hesitate to pick one up.

In terms of design, the AMG GT Concept that was unveiled in Geneva utilizes the round shape of the GT Coupe with the main difference being that it has been stretched to allow for an additional two doors to be placed. In addition, it brings to mind the first models of the CLS-Class particularly in how it managed to integrate a long arch which begins at the windshield, goes above the roof, and ultimately ends on the rear. The brand has said that this particular style is but a teaser of what’s to come in the series production version.

The AMG GT Concept also has the appearance of the current GT models but it was given several enhancements to elevate it to a whole new level. Some examples of which is its use of the ultra-slim headlights with the tail lamps having a 3D effect. Further, rather than mirrors, it uses rear-facing cameras resulting in the model becoming more aerodynamic.

Powering it is the bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and an electric motor mounted on the rear. Total output is given to be 805 hp (600 kW) and according to the brand, it allows the AMG GT Concept to go from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in under three seconds. For those who want a more environment friendly drive, this is possible as it can run solely on electric power.
