Rumors have been circulating about the 2016 Mercedes AMG GT for quite some time. Among the speculations being passed around online is that it will be carrying a V6 engine. However, a report from GT Spirit recently killed the rumors about the possible integration of the V6 to the car.
According to the source, Tobias Moers, the CEO of AMG, revealed during an interview that they would be using V8 engines instead. He cleared out that there won’t be any V6 version for the 2016 Mercedes AMG GT. The AMG chief explained that there is still more room to make the V8 more efficient, so they are sticking with it.
