During previous month, Mercedes-AMG introduced a four-door concept version of its GT sports car, complete with 805 horse power from a hybrid drivetrain that consists of a twin-turbo V8. During the concept’s debut, AMG official Tobias Moers informed that the vehicle would hit production next year, at first without the hybrid V8 drivetrain– just a traditional internal combustion engine. As it ends up, the smooth four-door might feature a lowly six-cylinder engine along with AMG’s workhorse 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 when it launches.
This rumor comes from Car and Driver’s Jens Meiners, who has the complete report on Mercedes-Benz’s future product strategies. Meiners reports that the six-cylinder GT four-door might be available in 3 tastes– a twin-turbo gas unit, a turbodiesel, and some sort of hybrid setup. It’s not defined whether the six-cylinder GT will utilize a V6, or Mercedes’ new inline-six.
Somewhere else in the GT lineup, Meiners reports AMG is still dealing with a two-door, even wilder GT Black Series. Formerly, Moers stated the AMG GT Black Series will show up in 2018, and assured that it would be considerably different from the track-focused AMG GT R.
