Top 4 Reasons for You to Buy the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe

What happens when you combine the winning formulas of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Mercedes-AMG GT? You get the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. This is the reason why there was so much hype surrounding the high-performance car’s world premiere and why it was flocked by people since the press days of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes is yet to reveal the pricing of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. However, it is already given that it will be very expensive considering it will take on the $85,000 to $194,800 Porsche Panamera. What we know so far is that it will roll out for buyers in mid-2018.

So why should you spend your hard earned cash for it? Here are four reasons why you should put the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in your checklist if you are looking to buy a high-performance luxury car:

1. Unique Addition to the Mercedes-AMG GT Family

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe successfully makes itself stand out from the Mercedes-AMG GT family with its distinct four-door feature. The rest of its siblings from the base GT going up to the GT R have two-door designs.

2. Athletic and Classy Design

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is defined by its long bonnet, Panamericana front grille, squinting Multibeam LED headlamps, jetwing front bumper design, huge air ducts, thin taillights, rear diffuser, low greenhouse, retractable rear wing, quadruple exhaust tips, and a combination of AMG performance wheels and tires. On the other hand, its curvaceous and smooth exterior is an excellent manifestation of Mercedes’ “Sensual Purity” design philosophy.

3. Luxurious Aura

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe also carries the DNA of the Mercedes-Benz CLS. If you strip away all the Mercedes-AMG GT elements of the four-door high-performance car leaving only its shell, it can be noticed that its form is all too similar to the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53. That’s because both are riding on the E-Class platform.

The interior of the two only vary in layout but you can find that most of the tech within the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe are just spiced up versions of the ones found in the E-Class and CLS. However, the arrangement of the controls of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe follows its AMG GT siblings.

4. Performance

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is available in three performance configurations and its power is governed by an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission. It starts with the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4MATIC with 3.0-liter inline-six that can deliver 435 hp combined with EQ Boost providing it an extra 22 hp, and 520 Nm of torque. Next is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC equipped with a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine capable of delivering 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque.

The top trim of the range is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+. It has the engine of the AMG GT 63 4MATIC but with an upgrade that lets it produce 639 hp and 900 Nm of torque. The auto can reach speeds of up to 310 km/h, and its 0-100 km/h acceleration can be achieved in merely 3.4 seconds.

3 Things To Know About The New BMW 7 Series

2019 bmw 7-series (6)

When the big twin-kidney grille debuted on the BMW X7 concept, there were a lot of criticisms mainly because the grille lacked the elegance and sophistication that BMW espoused since its birth. And yet, here’s the German company once more, using the same design on the all-new refreshed 7 Series.

Not only that, the kidney grille will, of course, also stay as the grille of choice on the production X7 and probably, the next X5 as well. A series of spy shots from Motor1 showed that the big sedan will sport the same buck-toothed kidney grille found on the X7 concept. The look was exaggerated further because of the slimmer and sleeker headlights on both sides of the grille.

1. Untouched Exterior

If you’re a fan of the current 7 Series, you don’t have to worry because the exterior remained virtually untouched. Everything in the middle is as in the current-generation lineup and the taillights also have the same shape and size as the current model. The only difference is that there will be revised lighting elements under the lenses.

2. High-Tech Instrument Panel

Everything is pretty much the same inside, except if you looked at the instrument panel, which is now sporting a complete flat screen that blends the physical and digital look thanks largely to the removal of the circular trim rings that were used in many BMW instrument screens in the past. It is not clear if the German automaker will follow on this trend for future vehicles.

There’s also a V12 badge inside, which might mean it could be an M760i given the presence of split tailpipes and covered C-pillar badge on the outside.

3. Revealed Later This Year

The production model for the refreshed 7 Series might be revealed no later than the last auto cycle this year or the beginning of next year. It will either be a 2019 or 2020 model.
