2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe says hello at Geneva

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe has lobbed at Geneva, for those who want something more practical than a Mercedes-AMG GT but sportier than a CLS.

Billed as a four-door fastback, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe will be available with a range of twin-turbo V8 engines as well as the brand’s new family of inline sixes.

Opening the range is the GT 53 4MATIC+, which combines a 3.0-litre turbo inline-six, electric compressor and 48V electrical system for 320kW and 520Nm, and an additional 16kW/250Nm with EQ Boost. It drinks as little as 9.1L/100km, sprints from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and tops out at 285km/h.

The V8 versions, meanwhile, are offered in two guises; 63 4MATIC+ and 63 S 4MATIC+. Both are powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that makes either 430kW or 470kW and 800Nm or 900Nm, depending on model.

Fuel use is a claimed 11.0L/100km with a 0-100km/h time of 3.4 seconds for the 63, and 3.2 for the 63 S. Top speed is 315km/h for the flagship, while the less powerful version is just 5km/h slower. Both engines are backed by a nine-speed automatic transmission, but the V8 scores a wet clutch pack setup while the six-cylinder utilises a torque converter.

The styling is characterised by thin rear LED strips, a retractable rear spoiler, slightly squarer headlamps than the two-door GT and the ‘Panamericana’ grille. The interior has a similar centre console to the two-door, differentiating it from other Mercedes-Benz sedans.
