Spy Images of Next Generation Mercedes Benz AMG GT Spotted
|   Sunday, January 19, 2014
Mercedes Benz Design Chief Gorden Wagener confirms that their next generation AMG GT will be the best looking vehicle in their inventory. This vehicle rivals Porsche's 911, while replacing their current performance hyper car – the SLS AMG. Without doubt, it is the costliest vehicle from Mercedes Benz to be unveiled this year, while it goes on sale by mid 2015. Even though people considered the SLS AMG to be a grand creation, its AMG GT will be their best design so far, Wagener said at the Detroit Motor Show.


This vehicle will draw comparison with Jaguar's latest F Type, although insiders at Mercedes Benz think they have a rather unique, yet classis design. Jaguar cannot compete with the AMG GT, in terms of performance, while luxury and finish is competent on both vehicles. Insiders from the Design Studio say that this vehicle is so low that it does not actually need side profiles.

Even though this would not be suitable for most countries around the globe, we expect a slight increase in ride height on its production variant. Spy images of this vehicle have been spotted, which raises hopes of a proto type soon. Heavy camouflage on its exterior hints at tight security and anonymity from Mercedes Benz, regarding this vehicle, although we could be looking at final pictures by the end of this year.

Side lines, front and rear bumpers and bonnet are so low that they appear in a single file. This design element has been used on their C Class as well. Hence, we should get a chance to preview this design. Mercedes Benz has confirmed unveiling this vehicle at the German Grand Prix this July, while power comes from a turbo charged, 4.0 liter V8 engine.

Final renderings, power train details and interior trim are yet to be unveiled, although we expect power displacement greater than 493 BHP. Experts estimate final pricing close to £100,000, although final prices are yet to be unveiled. This is a potentially powerful design, which we would like to see in future models too. This coupe is capable of seating two people, while we cannot confirm 2 + 2 arrangements.

Few design elements are common on this vehicle however, such as their large front grille, LED Daytime Running Lights and wheel arches. The current generation SLS AMG competes with Porsche's 911, Nissan's GT-R and Audi's R8, while we expect better performance from the AMG GT. Nissan however is the strongest contender in class, despite its low price tag. It manages to hold its own ground in class.

This vehicle is internally known as the C190, which is aimed at younger generations. Drive feel should be enhanced, in addition to refinement level and quality of fit and finish. We are unable to comment on details without witnessing this vehicle up front. We will get back to you with details regarding Mercedes Benz and their future plans, as well as the AMG GT. Stay tuned and come back soon for news, reports and drive test reviews.
