After last being spotted two months ago, the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT has once again been caught testing.
Mercedes-AMG has slapped on some deceiving camouflage in the form of a rear hump to make it look like a CLS-Class and disguise its true identity. How did we tell? For one, compare this test mule to the GT concept showcased at the Geneva Motor Show, and you will notice that it does not have the headlamps from the CLS, but are indeed similar to the GT concept from the Motor Show. Even the rear section of this GT test car, with its more slanting rear window rhymes with the GT concept from Geneva. And, it is this sloping rear that gives it more of a hatchback stance, like in the Porsche Panamera.
Sources add that the AMG GT is slated to get the same 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 motor which does duty in the GT series, and makes 577bhp and 700Nm. It remains to be seen, however, if the hybrid set-up that combines this engine with an electric motor to make a combined power output of about 805bhp, will ultimately make it the line-up. As of now, there’s no confirmation about when the four-door AMG GT is set to hit the market, but stay tuned for more information.
