2017 Geneva Motor Show – Mercedes-AMG GT Concept
This is more like it, right? I mean, it’s not like Mercedes and their last concept at Geneva wasn’t impressive, but I seem more attracted by their latest unveiling rather the stylish Vision at Paris. The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept previews a four-door performance sedan, stylish and packing enough tech to get anyone drooling over it. I’ve noticed that Mercedes-AMG is going for the ultimate performance, but it seems that luxurious touches are not missing from their approach. Developed and produced the SLS AMG in-house, the AMG GT was on display at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Bearing the new EQ Power+ designation introduced on the W08 F1 car, the AMG GT Concept incorporates a performance hybrid powertrain packing one heck of a punch.
It’s built around the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 as the existing two-door model, but adds an electric motor to deliver over 800 horsepower. The AMG GT Concept packs a hybrid powertrain, comprising the popular 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 alongside an electric motor, resulting in a total output of 800 ponies – what Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid? With 0 to 62 mph deal with in less than 3.0 seconds, this sedan is fully capable of challenging various supercars. The slick concept benefits from adaptive aerodynamics, a new type of daytime running lights, as well as from carbon-ceramic brakes. The better piece of news is that Daimler plans on making this happen as soon as possible, although some modifications compared to the concept are to be expected.
