2024 Mercedes-AMG GT: Possible S E Performance First Edition?

800+ HP Coupe Hidden Behind Camo

Mercedes-Benz certainly makes no effort to be coy about their impending latest AMG GT iteration. In recent months, we have caught sight of numerous prototypes, and now our northern snapper has captured another variant and it looks somewhat different.

At first glance, this mysterious prototype has a notably brilliant hue of grey to its exterior. Compared to other snapshots of camouflaged cars, the sides have minimal cloaking and although the color is unknown as yet, it appears to be almost identical to Alpine Grey from the Manufaktur assortment. Moreover, there’s a fixed spoiler mounted to the back with an aggressive rear diffuser established between the four exhaust outlets.

Out front, the camouflage has largely stayed the same since our previous sighting. Yet a closer glance at the lower fascia reveals that this is far from an ordinary AMG model. Noteworthy are the incorporated vertical gills situated around the corners, which frame the Panamericana grille and sophisticated lower grille. With its black wheels and hefty brakes in tow, we have reason to believe this is likely the S E Performance First Edition variant.

In the event that is correct, it implies this vehicle must be extraordinarily robust. By this we imply to the hybrid drive of the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance which premiered in August 2021. To remind you, it has an amalgamation of a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 coupled to an electric motor achieving combined 831 horsepower and more than 1,000 pound-feet of torque. Prior secret recordings have confirmed a V8 engine power, yet there’s still not any definitive news about the hybrid system, though a charging port was recognizable on the back bumper of the car.

As per usual, Mercedes is providing numerous renditions of the latest AMG GT. It seems as though most of them have previously been photographed. Recently, footage was captured of a prototype that has an analogous facade but without a static spoiler and roaring along a snow-covered path with its V8 sound. Then in February, a blue model, which boasted more subtlety than the brakes (indicating it could possibly be the GT 43 model) was trailed.

In spite of the different configurations, specimens have been manifested in public over the span of one year. Consequently, a launch appears to be imminent in the next couple months. Anticipate that when the time comes the all-new AMG GT will be launched as a 2022 model-year vehicle.
