A prototype of the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT was spotted recently, according to a report from the worldcarfans.com. A spy video of the much-awaited supercar was taken recently prior to its official introduction in the market this year.
Production of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is set to end soon and the luxury vehicle manufacturer does not have a direct replacement to this particular model. However, the Germany-based company is aiming to introduce a smaller mode without the gullwing doors.

According to Gorden Wagener, design head of the luxury vehicle manufacturer, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is the best-looking vehicle ever produced by the company. Reports have indicated the1982 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL will lend some of its design to the upcoming vehicle model.
The soon-to-be-unveiled model will be available as a rear-wheel-drive vehicle and will not offer any gearbox. The AMG GT moniker will be given to the upcoming model, which will utilize a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine. Tobias Moers, AMG head, revealed a Black Series model is also in the works. A number of other variants of the vehicle are also being worked on by the company.
A number of reports have indicated that the upcoming Mercedes-Benz vehicle is set to be unveiled during the German F1 Grand Prix on July 20. However, other reports have indicated that pictures of the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT will be available on the internet by September, before its official introduction at the Paris Motor Show in October.
