With production of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG wrapping up, the German automaker is now turning its attention to its replacement, the so-called 2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. While that name is unlikely to stick, new reports have emerged suggesting that the AMG GT will be initially revealed online sometime in September before being officially revealed at the Paris Motor Show 2014 in October.
While the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT won’t act as a direct successor to the SLS, it will replace it at the top of the Mercedes-Benz range and is set to take the fight to the Porsche 911 range. Two or three engines are said to be available with each delivering different power outputs and wearing different price tags. The range will be topped out be a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine set to produce around 500 hp and upwards of 570 hp in Black Series specification.
Recently, spy shots emerged showcasing the new interior of the car. They showed a similar LCD screen as to those found on all recent Mercedes-Benzes bar the new 2014 S-Class. For the A-Class, CLA, GLA and C-Class, this display is available in different sizes so a similar option may be available for the AMG GT.
A debut at Paris seems far more likely than one at the German Formula Grand Prix as previously speculated.
