AMG’s four-door super-coupe is coming to Geneva

Prototype nears the end of its testing schedule before taking on the world

Last year at the Geneva motor show, we witnessed the birth of the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept. It is, in short, a four-door Mercedes-AMG GT supercar. Which - in short – is a very good thing.

The production version will debut at this year’s Geneva show. The prototype GTs – as pictured above, on what looks like a jolly good day out – are currently undergoing the final testing phase.

After that, it’s off to Switzerland to give the Porsche Panamera a very big headache. As AMG boss Tobias Moers has long promised, the four-door coupe is yet another extension of the growing AMG GT family. A very fast member of a very fast family.

The GT Concept we saw last year wasn’t a lengthened GT chassis, though – it used the underpinnings of the mighty E63, with lots of lightweighting thrown in.

And power. Expect a mad twin-turbo V8. Hope for the E63’s excellent and childish switchable drift mode. Cross your fingers for noise.

We’ll have more from the show. In the meantime, click here to read more about the GT Concept.
