Andy Everett News 7th March 2018
The all new serial Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door model delivers driving experiences in new dimensions and extends the AMG model family. The new coupé is the first four-door sports car from Affalterbach and draws directly on the legendary SLS and AMG GT models of success.The exciting AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine is already used in numerous AMG models. Its output has been enhanced yet further for the new Mercedes‑AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ and ensures superior performance on a par with a sports car. It delivers 639 horsepower (470 kW) and a maximum torque of 900 Nm, which is available over a wide engine speed range from 2500 to 4500 rpm. The top engine of the new four-door AMG GT thus exudes effortless superiority in every engine speed range. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 3.2 seconds clearly illustrates this, as does the maximum speed of 315 km/h (195mph).Alongside the two V8 engines the new four-door sports car is also available as the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4MATIC+ with the innovative AMG six-cylinder inline engine. The 435 hp (320 kW) 3.0-litre unit is characterised by high performance, supported by a boost effect with an output of up to 22 hp (16 kW) and 250 newton metres of torque. The EQ Boost starter-alternator combines a starter motor and alternator in a powerful electric motor and is between the engine and transmission. This intelligent combination, along with efficient charging with the electric additional compressor (eZV) and exhaust air turbocharger helps ensure the hallmark AMG performance and driving dynamics but also cuts consumption and emissions at the same time. The four-door AMG GT 53 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 285 km/h (177mph).
