he four-door Mercedes – AMG GT sports car has been teasing again this week, with an official unveiling at the Geneva motor show.
As a German brand new four-door coupe’s flagship, the newest member in the AMG GT series will be basic to fill gap left by the outgoing V8 engine CLS – the model by AMG 53 hybrid title now.
Although it is the first time the company has described it as a “four-door coupe”, it has not provided new information about the GT four-door sedan. We are not sure whether the name will be final, or whether AMG will work in a more attractive way.
In a 20-second video clip posted on the company’s Facebook page, we briefly learned a few details about the vehicle, including headlights, tail lights and some badges.
It seems that the AMG GT 4 will be more Coupe than the CLS, though the front and rear are likely to be similar to its more practical Mercedes brand.
The car should be decorated in blue with cream color inside.
Unlike the two-door GT series built on a custom platform, GT 4 is considered to be based on the same architecture used by the new e-class and CLS.
Because of the lack of the ‘EQ Boost’ badge in the trailer, it looks as if the four AMG GT will carry the company’s 4.0 liter twin turbocharged V8 engine under the hood, which may be as E63 S as the AMG’s 450kW / 850Nm tuner.
It is expected that the new four-door coupe will eventually get hybrid powertrain, and the GT concept is expected to achieve the power output of “up to 600kW”.
We have to wait until March 6 for more details.
Please pay attention to CarAdvice, so as to report on the display of AMG GT 4 Coupe at the Geneva motor show later this week.
Cross-selling such as Volvo’s XC60 is now selling like hot cakes, but old wagons are still alive.
Volvo V60 will incorporate all of the XC60’s technology and Scandinavian design elegance into the classic load shape at this week’s all-around flesh show in Geneva.
The result – 70 per cent of voters in favour of V60 over XC60 – was not particularly surprising, as we reacted to the entire exposure story.
The new V60 is 4781mm long, 1850mm wide, 1427mm high and 146mm long, 16mm and 57mm lower than the existing car, 96mm longer than the previous one. If you include storage space under the floor, you can reduce 529 litres of luggage space, making it suitable for use.
Unfortunately, the car is not guaranteed to come to Australia. Volvo says it has not yet decided on its future. Our fingers crossed firmly.
