Mercedes-AMG GT Sedan Set for Geneva
Mercedes-AMG is taking the GT 4-door sedan it showed as a concept at the Geneva show last year back again to Switzerland, this time in production guise. Prior to the show, the German auto maker is in effect releasing its own spy photos as it shows a camouflaged prototype in testing.
Sporting coupe-like styling not dissimilar to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, this high-performance sedan from the AMG sub-brand will likely use a variant of the hybrid powerplant unveiled in the concept. The powertrain combines a turbocharged V8 engine and electric motor to produce a combined output of 805 horsepower. Mercedes said the concept could sprint to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds.
The concept version of the Mercedes-AMG GT Sedan sported familiar AMG cues from its Panamera-style grille to a purposeful tail treatment that features a functional diffuser and centrally positioned exhaust outlets. Even its full LED lighting makes a statement, introducing new “nano active fiber technology” in the running lamps and taillights that permits greater flexibility while delivering bright light.
