TEASED: Mercedes-AMG GT 73e Coming Soon With 804 HP

Teaser / Comments

The covers are coming off Mercedes-AMG's new performance hybrid next month.

Back in June, Mercedes-AMG lifted the wraps off the refreshed 2022 GT 4-Door Coupe. As part of the model's mid-cycle facelift, the 2022 GT 4-Door Coupe features a modified suspension, new customization options, and an optional bench seat increasing the seating capacity up to five. In its range-topping GT 63 S guise, the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe produces 630 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8.

If you want more performance, we've known for some time that Mercedes-AMG is preparing a new plug-in hybrid GT 4-Door Coupe reportedly called the GT 73 e. We've seen plenty of spy shots and videos of prototypes in action, and now Mercedes-AMG has confirmed when the production model will debut.

In a social media post, Mercedes-AMG announced the GT 73e will break cover next week on September 1. An accompanying shadowy teaser image shows the GT 73e's face, giving us a clear look at the high-performance hybrid's Panamerica grille, aggressive air vents, and sculpted hood.

The GT 73e will form part of Mercedes-AMG's new E Performance brand. All models labeled as an E Performance model will either be a performance hybrid like the GT 73e and C63e or a fully electric AMG. In the case of the GT 73e, power will be sourced from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor producing a combined 804 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque.

It won't be Mercedes-AMG's most powerful road car, however - that title belongs to the One hypercar, which packs an electrified V6 generating 1,021 hp. Despite carrying extra weight from the electric powertrain, the GT 73e will accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds.

The GT63 S already starts at $161,900, but the GT 73 e's hybrid tech will no doubt add a significant premium to the price tag. We'll find out more when the Mercedes-AMG GT73 e debuts next month. After its digital debut, we expect Mercedes-AMG will show the new performance hybrid off at the 2021 Munich Motor Show from September 6.
