2023 Mercedes-AMG GT Successor Prototype Spied Playing In the Snow New Winter Testing Spy Video

Hiding in plain sight, the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe has been one of the auto world’s most speculated subjects. Spotted during testing on a few occasions over recent months, a 3 minute and 20 second video has now emerged showcasing a yellow test vehicle as it circles a Scandinavian frozen lake. This footage may at long last verify what many anticipated – the next generation AMG GT is coming with an 8 cylinder motor.

The source of intrigue concerning the new model has always been hidden below its hood. Reports suggest it may incorporate anything from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with hybridization to an electrified 4.0-liter system – although neither option is ruled out. Still, the V8 rumble heard in this new video appears unmistakable – consequently we remain keenly awaiting the official release of any other powertrain variants.

It’s unsurprising to find a V8 in one of Mercedes’ performance vehicles, even with their selection of four-cylinder hybrid offerings from the AMG branch. Where speculation tends to mount, though, is regarding the horsepower of this engine – estimates have been made that the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 from the AMG GT 63 S E Performance may make its way into the coupe, which could potentially provide an output of over 800 HP. This figure is merely extrapolated from the aforementioned performance sedan’s existing power capability and recent spotting of AMG GTs sporting charging ports.

Apart from boasting a hardtop structure, the upcoming AMG GT Coupe is due to differ from the SL with a variety of design updates. Rumour has it that its front aesthetics are probably going to see new headlights as well as an altered grille, plus a revised bumper. What’s more, there will be a major transformation when compared to its precursor – a move towards a 2+2 seating format matching the architecture of the SL. The present AMG GT currently possesses only two seats.

When will we witness the advent of the brand-new generation sports car? At present, no precise launch date has been openly disclosed. However, conjecture points to it being available during either the 2nd or 3rd trimester of 2021 and likely going to be sold in America as a 2024 model.
