Mercedes-Benz isn’t shy at all when it comes to its next-generation AMG GT strutting around in public view. We’ve seen countless prototypes over the past few months, and today our spy photographer up north caught another one. And it looks a little different.
For starters, there’s a particularly bright shade of gray on the exterior of this prototype. As with other recent spy photos, the sides of the car are virtually camouflage-free and while we don’t know exactly what this color is, it is similar to Alpine Gray from the automaker’s Manufaktur selection. There’s also a fixed spoiler on the rear of this coupe, and down below you’ll find an aggressive rear diffuser between the quad tailpipes.
Up front, the camouflage overlays haven’t changed since our last sighting. But check that lower fascia – without any heavy cover we can see it’s definitely not an entry-level AMG. Vertical vents at the corners of the fascia serve as supports for the large Panamericana grille and the complex lower grille. Combined with the black wheels and positively huge brakes, our sources believe this could be an SE Performance First Edition model.
If so, it probably contains considerable power. By that, we’re referring to the plug-in hybrid powertrain in the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance that debuted in August 2021. To refresh your memory, it’s a twin-turbo V8 4, 0 liters fused with an electric motor to produce a combined output of 831 horsepower and over 1,000 lb-ft of torque. Previous spy videos have confirmed the power of the V8, and while we have no official word on the hybrid setup, a charging port is visible on this car’s rear bumper.
As usual, Mercedes will be offering the new AMG GT in several flavors and so far we’ve probably spied most of them. Before these photos, we filmed a prototype with a similar front fascia roaring through the snow with a V8 growl, but missing the fixed spoiler. A blue tester seen in February clearly had a soft fascia with less aggressive brakes, suggesting it was a GT 43 version.
Regardless of the trim level, we’ve seen prototypes in public for over a year now. As such, a debut is coming soon, possibly within the next few months. When that happens, expect the new AMG GT to be a 2024 model year vehicle.
