This brash body wrap should be on the official options list.
The last time we saw the Mercedes-AMG GT Four-Door Coupe (don’t worry, that won’t be its final name), it was being tested in a wind tunnel preparing for its upcoming battle against the Porsche Panamera. Since the official teaser was released, our spies have caught a near-final production prototype of the four-door coupe being tested in snowy conditions, where it was being benchmarked against, you guessed it, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
We’re used to seeing prototype cars wearing traditional black and white camouflage, but the pre-production Mercedes-AMG GT Four-Door Coupe was spotted wearing a matte black body wrap with green flame accents, in a hot rod-style design that wouldn’t look out of place in Fast & Furious. Somehow, we don’t think this brash body wrap will be part of the official options list, which is a shame because it suits the AMG GT Four Door, surprisingly. These latest spy snaps give us our most revealing look yet at Mercedes-AMG's Porsche Panamera fighter, as the new headlights and taillights are only partially hidden.
At the front, the prominent Panamericana grille is visible, while the massive front air-vents and rear quad exhaust tips, spoiler and diffuser complement the more aggressive lines. We fully expect the AMG GT Four Door, or whatever Mercedes decides to call it, to utilize a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, hopefully developing over 600 horsepower. If the stunning GT Concept shown at last year’s Geneva show is anything to go by, a hybrid variant with over 800 horsepower will also join the range at some point in the future. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait for these details to be confirmed, because Mercedes will lift the wraps off the AMG GT Four Door Coupe at Geneva on March 6. Hopefully it will be revealed online a few days earlier.
