After many static photos showing the new generation Mercedes-AMG GT tested in different environments, now is the time to take a look at a video showing a prototype being driven on the roads near the Nurburgring.
Seen in action earlier this week, the model was reluctant to show any detail, as she had a thick layer of camouflage wrapped around her body. However, while the design part is still somewhat of a secret, the sound isn’t, as the 2:35 minute long footage built into the bottom of the article reveals some of it.
As you probably already know, the 2023 Mercedes-AMG GT will use the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 sound. The engine, split with the new SL, as well as the platform, is expected to have the same power and torque as the unit that powers the roadster.
One of the most powerful cars
In the most powerful version of the latter so far, the model will have approximately 585 hp / 430 kW and 800 Nm, with the possibility of reaching from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds. SL 55 is less powerful, with 476 hp / 350 kW and 700 Nm and can reach from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds. The maximum speed is between 295-315 km / h. However, since the GT should be lighter than the SL, it will also be a bit faster.
Visually, it will be on an evolutionary path. Some of the things that will differentiate it from the SL, in addition to the fixed ceiling above the passenger compartment, will be the grille, positioned below, the exclusive headlights and the new taillights.
The wheelbase should be about the same length as the current GT, and the cab will probably be the same as the roadster.
The date of the revelation is probably a few months away, some claim that Mercedes could make the announcement towards the end of the year or at the beginning of 2023.
