Leaked Internal Document Suggests New Mercedes-AMG GT Will Arrive In October

Rumor / 7 Comments

The latest iteration of the range-topping Benz will take the fight to the Porsche 911.

It's been a busy year for Mercedes-Benz, which has released a slew of new models in recent months. Stuttgart's symbol of excellence has no signs of slowing down either, with a leaked internal document suggesting the new Mercedes-AMG GT sports car will arrive sooner than we think.

This is according to Periodismo Del Motor, a Spanish publication that reports the halo Benz will arrive as soon as October 2023. Whether it will be revealed or go on sale at that time remains unclear, but judging by the other product highlights, it could be the latter.

If that's the case, we can expect Mercedes-AMG to lift the lid on the new GT any minute now. Spy shots of the upcoming 911 rival have been circulating since January 2022, meaning the vehicle has been in development for several years already.


We also caught a glimpse of the coupe during cold weather testing, wearing decidedly less camouflage than is the norm. This all points to an imminent reveal.

Mercedes-Benz will offer the GT in various flavors, such as the desirable 63 S E Performance guise. First used by the AMG GT 4-Door, this hybrid V8 spits out as much as 831 horsepower and a tire-destroying 1,084 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a rear-mounted electric motor.

It's unlikely that we will see a roadster version of the newcomer. That role is being fulfilled by the new SL55 and SL63, and Mercedes has no space for redundancy in its lineup anymore.

What else can we expect Mercedes-Benz to pull from its hat in 2023? Well, most of the models on the document have already been revealed.

This includes the facelifted A-Class, B-Class, CLA, GLA, GLB, and GLE models, with the GLS penciled in for September.

With the reveal of the large three-row SUV scheduled to take place next month, we're guessing this is when these models will go on sale. As such, we can assume the GT will go on sale (in Spain, at least) in October. American on-sale dates don't always line up with Europe, though, so we could see the GT hit dealerships towards the end of the year or in early 2024.

In the same month, Mercedes has plans for the new CLE, a new model that will fill the shoes of both the existing C-Class and E-Class coupes and cabriolets.

Speaking of the brand's historical bread and butter model, the new E-Class will reportedly break cover in June. Elsewhere, we can also expect the Maybach EQS SUV to arrive, along with a facelifted version of the Maybach GLS 600.
