Check out Russian tuner TopCar's take on the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is a gorgeous four-door coupe-style sports sedan, but if it looks too tame for you Russian aftermarket tuner TopCar has created a new body kit that gives the four-door fastback a dose of attitude. Made of lightweight carbon fiber, the body kit features 30 components that can be installed separately or bought as a complete package. This is also the first time TopCar has given a Mercedes passenger car the tuning treatment.
TopCar's new Inferno body kit complete adds a new front splitter, hood, side skirts, diffuser, and a rear wing that increases the car's downforce to keep it glued to the ground. The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe looks a lot more menacing as a result.
It also sports a more prominent grille, along with more aggressive front and rear bumpers, wider fenders, and carbon mirrors. Each component is tested in a wind tunnel and be finished in carbon fiber reinforced plastics or painted in the car's body color. The upgrades also include new custom 21-inch wheels available in three designs: GT Style, Shark Style and Fury Style.
Mechanically, TopCar's take on the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is identical to its standard sibling. That means you get a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque in the entry-level GT 43, while the range-topping GT 63 S has a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 generating 630 hp and 664 lb-ft, so it's hardly underpowered.
All that power is sent to an all-wheel drive system through a nine-speed automatic transmission, enabling the GT 4-Door to do the 0-62 mph dash in just 3.1 seconds.
Unsurprisingly, TopCar's modifications aren't cheap. A complete Inferno body kit will cost around 2.3-2.7 million rubles including the cost for installation and replacing the wheels - that's around $29,854 - $35,033. Each wheel set costs 600,000 rubles ($7,788), while the carbon-reinforced kit costs 1.95 million rubles ($25,311) and a body-painted body kit costs 1.34 million rubles ($17,386).
