Mercedes-AMG GT4, the long-rumored four-door AMG GT, Porsche Panamera competitor, will be revealed in concept form early next month, at the Geneva motor show.
The rumor mill is back to work. According to British media, Mercedes-Benz has a surprise up its sleeve for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, the close to production prototype of a dream four-door super sedan, based on the AMG GT supercar.
According to British magazine Autocar the car will be called ‘AMG GT4’, and that is no coincidence. The 600-horsepower super sedan would in fact be the third distinct product that is fully developed by Mercedes’ sporty division and sub-brand Mercedes-AMG, joining the AMG GT Coupe and Roadster in the current line-up.
A practical alternative to the AMG GT theme, the new Mercedes-AMG GT4 will mix the coupe’s aggressive styling with the four-door format of the larger and less sporty CLS. The long nose of the two-door sports car is difficult to combine with rear doors, so a brand-new side-profile styling is likely to be featured. Under the hood, no surprises, with AMG’s own 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 doing its job in 600 hp plus form, possibly in the same 612 hp power output of the latest Mercedes-AMG E 63 S.
The car that will make its appearance in Geneva, is according to Autocar still a concept car that serves as a strong prelude to the production GT4. The production version is said to come to the showrooms as early as 2018.
