Uncovered: Mercedes-AMG Finally Pulls the Wraps Off New GT 4-Door Coupe

Performance meets practicality.

by on Mar.06, 2018

AMG adds another bright shining star to its line-up with the four-door version of its GT.

In recent weeks, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe has been teased more often than an old-time burlesque ecdysiast but, finally, the fan dance is over and we can see it in all its sheet metal glory at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

The original GT was one of only a small handful of vehicles specifically developed for the AMG performance division – following the earlier SLR and SLA models. There’s now an assortment of variants, fast, faster and fastest, but with the addition of the four-door package, performance adds an element of practicality.

“The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe blends the impressive racetrack dynamism of our two-door sports car with maximum suitability for everyday use,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, adding his expectation that it will “attract new customers” who at least occasionally need the added passenger space.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R takes on winter's worst in the latest expansion of the Forza racing game.

Once rare, Daimler’s AMG division seems intent on turning out high-performance versions of just about every possible Mercedes-Benz model – sometimes two or more, as it demonstrated at the Detroit Auto Show with the launch of several new Mercedes-AMG GT variants.

The latest AMG models are not just faster than ever, they’re flying out of showrooms at a record pace, with little indication of any slowdown in sight as the brand that began in a German garage marks its 50th anniversary.

AMG isn’t the only brand-within-a-brand success story for Daimler. If anything, however, Maybach may be an even bigger surprise, having come back from the dead just two years ago as the marque for Mercedes’ most exclusive models. The reincarnated brand is now selling more cars in China each month than it did worldwide in its previous life.
