Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe revealed

Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe revealed

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe debuting at the Geneva Motor Show features a cabin air freshening system with a signature "sporty scent" to help energize you during your drives. So when it comes to adding three more four-door models to the range, something along the lines of AMG GT+, GT+ S and GT+ C - leaving the two-door GT R as the standalone pinnacle of AMG performance - would seem the obvious choice, right?

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers dropped the bombshell at the 2018 Geneva motor show, confirming the return of the Black Series badge to the performance brand's GT hero model.

The liftback design adds functionality to the high performance 4-door.

Still to come, at least we expect so, is the 800bhp hybrid GT 4D, but for now you'll be limited to just the two V8s in the United Kingdom when the AMG GT four-door goes on sale in the summer.

All three versions of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door get a nine-speed automatic transmission and the power is sent to all four wheels.

The price of the various models and packages are not being released until closer to launch, Fox News reported, but competitive models from other carmakers start at about $85,000.

Extending the AMG GT family to three models alongside the two-door Coupe and Roadster, the newcomer is called "the first four-door sports vehicle from Affalterbach". Below the big mouth is an aggressive "jet wing" front bumper with gaping side inlets.

Flared wheel arches ensure the GT is wider than the CLS, while a fixed rear wing and quad exhaust pipes finish the look. At the rear, there are only two seats. Things aren't exactly bleak for those up front, however, as two 12.3-inch TFT screens display both the instrument gauges and infotainment system, though not Mercedes' latest interface. And just like the AMG GT, lots of those bold aerodynamic surfaces will actually move to aid the handling of the auto. It's also the latest auto in a recent trend of automakers making and naming four-door vehicles "coupes", a term that has historically referred to two-door contraptions.

The AMG GT 63 sports the company's 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine and delivers 577 hp and a top speed of 193 miles per hour. Sitting in the middle of the range, it makes use of a "hot-V" biturbo V8 engine, delivering 585hp and 590lb ft of torque. The V8 models feature cylinger deactivation, while the 53 is technically a mild hybrid, combining the engine with Merc's EQ Boost system that functions as a starter-alternator for the vehicle.

Various driver-assistance systems are also included as standard, including lane keeping assist, speed limit assist and keyless go.
