There’s a good news for customers who are waiting for the deliveries of their Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe sports cars. Mercedes-Benz just announced that the production of the vehicle has already commenced on its Sindelfingen plant in Germany.
The first units of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe are expected to reach European customers in October. Meanwhile, US buyers will have to wait until early 2019 for their cars.
The AMG GT 4-Door adopts the same look offered by the two-door Mercedes-AMG GT cars and mixes it with the rear styling of the CLS. The product is being assembled together with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and E-Class, including the said models’ Mercedes-Maybach versions, in Sindelfingen.
The AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is available in three trims. The selections include the AMG GT 53, AMG GT 63 and AMG GT 63 S. On the other hand, the range offers two engine choices. All versions of the four-door AMG GT are paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The base AMG GT 53 is equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-6 partnered to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. The petrol-fed engine alone produces a total output of 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the AMG GT 63 and AMG GT 63 S each carries a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. The AMG GT 63 comes with 577 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, and the AMG 63 S possesses 630 hp and 629 lb-ft of torque.
The range-topping AMG GT 63 S is capable of reaching a 195 mph top speed while its 0-60 mph acceleration can be achieved in only 3.1 seconds.
