The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept on display at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 gives a sneak preview at the German manufacturers planned move into Porsche Panamera territory. It should be AMG’s third sand-alone project and it set to debut shortly after its Hypercar. We took a closer look.

As a testament to the future plans of Mercedes-AMG the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept show car packs a V8 petrol engine and high performance electric motor. The hybrid powertrain is intelligently networked with a modular battery concept comprising of very powerful yet light batteries. The result is a combined output of roughly 800 horsepower (600 kW), good for a 0-100 km/h sprint in under three seconds.

In addition to the increased performance and hybrid powertrain, the four-door dynamic fastback is far more suitable for everyday use. Despite its performance edge it accommodates four passengers and provides plenty of space for luggage thanks to a variable interior and separate luggage compartment.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept gets a Panamericana grille. Its vertical ribs are painted red on the sides and bearing the Mercedes-Benz star gives the Mercedes-AMG GT the aggressive appearance we have come to expect from the series.
