Mercedes-AMG are set to release a four-door variant of its AMG GT sports car. The sports coupe is expected to compete with the Porsche Panamera. It will be on display in Concept form at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 which begins tomorrow.
The show car is set to feature aggresive styling and massive wheels. The teaser image shows the rear with a central exhaust and carbon fibre diffuser. The real fireworks are not visible in the picture though – the front should really set the tone for the future styling of the four-door AMG GT.
The Concept will likely share the underpinnings of the Mercedes-AMG GT. It is expected to use a 600 hp version of the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine. What it likely won’t use though is the AMG GT’s platform. Instead, it will likely get a modified version of the modular rear architecture (MRA), as used on the C 63, E 63 and S 63.
The production version will be AMG’s third dedicated series production model line. It follows the AMG GT and the upcoming Hypercar. Rumours are that it will make the Mercedes-AMG CLS Shooting Brake redundant.
AMG is expected to produce around 80,000 sales this year. The AMG line-up currently comprises 31 models, with plans to expand to 48 models.
