Mercedes AMG GT is Gonna be a Beauty

Spy Shots

And it'll supposedly have a timeless design.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will soon be no more, but there’s still plenty of light at the end of the tunnel. While that rather large gullwing coupe and roadster became a favorite for many, the German automaker is currently going into the final development phases for its replacement, likely to be called the AMG GT. We’ve already been able to confirm that it’ll be powered by a new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that’ll deliver close to 500 horsepower and that it’ll be unveiled at the German Grand Prix in July.

Design wise, there’s also been several sets of spy shots along the way, but now its design chief is claiming it "is the most beautiful car we’ve ever designed." Gorden Wagener is the man tasked with making this Porsche 911 fighter look the part, and he recently stated that "You’d think it was hard to top the SLS….and that it has a more timeless classical lightness to it." Wagener even went as far as claiming that those who’ve seen the final design have even compared it to the iconic Jaguar E-Type. Those are some bold claims, but we’ll have to wait until this summer to see if they’re true.
