The Mercedes Benz GT AMG Spotted Testing on Ice
|   Tuesday, January 21, 2014
We have already reported seeing spy images of the next generation Mercedes Benz AMG GT, although latest images have surfaced, of this vehicle being tested on snow, raising hopes of a specific variant to tackle heavy snowfall in most parts of Europe. These latest images also feature less camouflage, hinting at pre production developments having been made. Mercedes Benz has already confirmed launching this vehicle by 2015, although we expect a public reveal by the end of this year.


Officials have named this car, as 2016 Mercedes Benz AMG GT, while performance power house AMG have customized this vehicle to take on various super cars from McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari and BMW etc. We are yet to know sufficient details regarding this vehicle, as Mercedes Benz is tightlipped about this vehicle. It is based on an all new aluminum body frame and light weight chassis, although it weighs approximately 3,300 pounds.

This vehicle is actually 300 pounds lighter than the current generation SLS AMG, even though both vehicles are based on similar aspects. We have been informed of a turbo charged V8 engine block, even though capacity and power displacement are unknown. Upon consulting with experts, veterans and insiders at Mercedes Benz, we came to known of power displacement nearing 600 BHP.

This vehicle should sport a seven speed dual clutch transmission system, with every engine option, although official confirmations are yet to be made. A naturally aspirated engine was first conceived for this vehicle, but the idea was scrapped as a turbo charged engine was more commercially viable. A convertible variant should follow its coupe. While rumor has it that Mercedes Benz is secretly working on a Black Edition variant.

We are expecting a certain decrease in overall price tag as Mercedes Benz plans on making this vehicle more commercially attractive. They will try and convince the youth to try their hands on it, while the young at heart should find it efficient to drive as well. Engineers claim they have designed a radical vehicle, capable of vivid performance apart from luxury and daily commute, although we doubt people will use it other than touring or simply for pleasure.

Even though quite a few names are being worked on (including SLC), unofficially we have heard management finalizing GT AMG, which shares its name with the current generation SLS. It is too early to comment on mechanical, electrical or other aspects of this vehicle as we are yet to get a complete picture of this scenario. However, our informants confirmed that Mercedes Benz will not disappoint.

Engineers at AMG have used fairly new designing principles to enable smarter and efficient performance, but we are yet to know what that implies. Considering their reputation and brand loyalty, Mercedes Benz AMG will not disappoint. Stay tuned for latest updates as we are waiting to be informed of latest developments. We keep huge expectations from the German brand as they have failed to come up with a disappointing product so far in the recent past.
