Alongside the A-Class, the G-Class, and the world premiere of the new C-Class, the new four-door Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe debuted at the Geneva Motor Show 2018. Despite the coupe designation, the new four door AMG GT coupe is an evolved, stately take on previous CLS AMG models.

Current models of the Mercedes-AMG GT coupe are reminiscent of heritage European sport coupes from the 1940s and 50s thanks to classic styling and details; however, the new Four door Mercedes AMG GT unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 shares more in common with the new Mercedes-Benz CLS-class, while that makes it look a tad more mature, new exterior design elements like frameless side windows, a sculptural hood and a sloping roofline from the A-pillar to the trunk lid adds a sinuous, sensual appeal to the new 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT. The rear spoiler is a tad divisive but we consider it cherry on cake. It’s an odd bit of nomenclature that the Coupe is still called one despite the 4-doors but aesthetically and performance-wise, the latest four door Mercedes-AMG GT is worthy of coupe appellation.

 

Inside, the cabin has less in common with current AMG GT models and more in common with the S-class, the new four door Mercedes-AMG GT coupe is definitely higher on luxurious interiors with reduced emphasis on sportive appeal.  Interior design misgivings for speed racers aside, the new Geneva Motor Show 2018 AMG GT 4-Door coupe delivers where it needs it most – the standard Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door ’63’ will get a 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine will deliver 577 horses and 553 lb-ft of torque, ably managed with an all new  nine-speed automatic gearbox.

If that wasn’t enough, the latest AMG GT 4-Door ’63 S’ uses a similar engine tuned to deliver 630 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, completing its century sprint in 3.1 seconds.  Naturally, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is all the more interesting when one uses the brand’s 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system to engage rear-wheel drive aka “Drift Mode” for the professional racer in you.

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is the ideal companion for anyone who appreciates performance, comfort and versatility. Whether it’s as a six-cylinder petrol model or with the tried and tested AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine which delivers up to 639 HP. Put yourself in pole position, both on the race track and in your day-to-day life. All models of the latest AMG GT 4-Door also come equipped with “AIRPANEL”, an active aerodynamic front bumper “flap” which works in-tandem with the active rear spoiler to create racing aerodynamics for better road handling and performance.
