The 2015 AMG GT will be “the most beautiful car ever designed” to carry the Mercedes logo. This was proudly stated by Mercedes-Benz chief Gorden Wagener like a dad expecting a new child.
According to WorldCarFans, Ola Kallenius, the Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing of the brand, stated that the upcoming 2015 AMG GT will be a “pure sports car” not a “luxury sports car”.
In Wagener’s accounts, people who have had the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the car cannot help but compare it to the classic Jaguar E-Type. He added that the vehicle will have a “more timeless classical lightness to it”. Then, it will be so low that its side profile will not even reveal lines said Wagener.
A few days ago, the 2015 AMG GT was spotted near the Arctic Circle during its cold weather testing. A separate report from the source mentioned that it is designed to go head-to-head with the Porsche 911 in terms of style.
Based on the spy shots the car carries a long hood, an active rear spoiler, a twin exhaust system, traditional doors and slim taillights.
The release of the 2015 AMG GT is rumored to be on July 20 at the 2014 German Formula 1 Grand Prix. It is speculated also that the car will be equipped with a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine which will offer around 493 bhp. The report further said that the engine is the result of combining two 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged motors taken from the AMG versions of the A-Class lineup.
The car’s designation as the 2015 AMG GT is not yet final. The name of the car may be different when it will be unveiled noted the report.
