All new AMG GT Four-Door
Where do I even start when it comes to the all-new Mercedes-Bens GT 63 S 4door, which happens to be the 1st four-door vehicle developed autonomously by Mercedes-AMG division.
Talking numbers, the AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is available in three variants: GT 63 S and GT 63 – both featuring V8 power – and there’s a GT 53, this gets the most potent version of Merc’s new straight-six engine.
The range-topping GT 63 S 4Matic+ is the most powerful production Mercedes currently for sale. With 470kW on tap at 5500-6500rpm and 900Nm from 2500rpm, it even humbles the 463kW V12 SL65. Mercedes-AMG claims a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a 315km/h top speed.
Both use AMG’s 4-litre V8 assisted by a pair of turbochargers mounted inside the V, and the engine also features cylinder deactivation as well as active engine mounts in the case of the ‘S’ version. The V8 is mated to AMG’s Speedshift ‘MCT’ 9-speed multi-clutch gearbox.
At the bottom of the range is the GT 53 4Matic+, powered by a 320kW/520Nm 3-liter straight-six, paired with an ‘EQ Boost’ starter-alternator that can provide an additional 16kW and 250Nm of boost, while also powering the 48-volt onboard power supply. This model also gets the more conventional nine-speed AMG Speedshift ‘TCT’ torque converter gearbox.
Inside the four-door, GT follows the latest Merc trends with a Widescreen Cockpit that places two 31.2 high-res displays alongside each other.
This set-up is standard in V8 models and optional in the six. Drivers can choose from three different display styles for the digital interface, namely ‘Classic’, ‘Sport’ and the new ‘Supersport’ option. Another highlight is the AMG-specific steering wheel with Touch Control buttons that allow the entire infotainment system to be controlled via finger swipes.
Buyers wanting space for three rear seat passengers can opt for a conventional bench seat, while those seeking a plusher set-up for two can choose between two, individual two-seater options, one offering a touchpad screen between the seats that allows ‘backseat drivers’ to control a variety of aspects, including climate control and ambient lighting.
All-in-All the new Mercedes Range is incredible and anyone would be lucky enough to own it
