The Mercedes-AMG GT will be joined by other high-performance AMG models such as the A45 AMG, CLA45 AMG, C63 AMG Coupe Black Series, SL65 AMG and the SLS AMG Coupe Black Series. What’s more interesting is that the AMG GT will be launched short after its world premiere in DriveClub.
Powering the new sports car is the new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine codenamed M178 and capable to develop between 461 hp and 510 hp. Insiders say that the vehicle will be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds, while top speed will be 192 mph or 310 km/h.
Mercedes-Benz will be launching the AMG GT shortly after its global debut in DRIVECLUB, a game developed by Evolution Studios exclusively for PlayStation 4. Evolution Studios worked with AMG engineers with an aim to recreate the Mercedes-AMG GT in DRIVECLUB with extraordinary accuracy.
Evolution Studios were provided with the vehicle’s technical specifications and data and were allowed to access the AMG GT on the test track. The game developer was even allowed to record the vehicle’s sound. With those data and information, Evolution Studios succeeded in recreating every aspect of the Mercedes-AMG GT in DRIVECLUB.
Mercedes currently has six AMG models featured in DRIVECLUB, the most among premium carmakers. DRIVECLUB is a PS4-exclusive racing game developed by Evolution Studios in which players compete in different racing events around the world in several modes.
The game features clubs, which players may create or join in. Likewise, players of one club can race against another club. The game encourages teamwork as players can play together to tackle different racing challenges. Nevertheless, DRIVECLUB makes full use of the networking power of the PS4 to seamlessly play with each other. As players level up, they also unlock items like new vehicles.
