The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe smells like speed

Even the "base" GT 53 comes with 429 horsepower and a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of 4.4 seconds, thanks to the CLS's six-cylinder gasoline engine and mild hybrid system that provides added electric "boost".

The 53 unit is special as it includes an electric motor to improve efficiency and cut down on emissions, while also coming with a 48V electrical system to power the lights, infotainment and cockpit systems. Just to re-iterate, these are four door coupes and can seat 4/5 people. The flagship model, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S is packing well in excess of the rumored 600 hp - at 630 hp (470 kilowatts) from its 4.0-liter biturbo V8.

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is a truly fantastic auto.

A 577bhp V8-powered GT 63 capable of a 3.4 second launch to 62mph sits in the middle of the range, but the GT 63 S is going to be the model you want. European buyers will have the option of a four-passenger or five-passenger version, but in the US, only the four-seat configuration will be available.

This deadly flu season has peaked, but a late bump could loom
Most of the discussion related to the H3N2 component of the flu vaccine and one of the influenza B components, Webby said. Several flu viruses are circulating, including a type called influenza B that tends to hit children hard.


Interestingly, especially for those who thought this is just an E63S with a different body, all versions of the GT 4-Door Coupe have an active rear-wheel-steering system as standard, which should make for some pretty good handling on the twisties.

All three come with a nine-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive, which can be locked into rear-wheel-drive on the 63s by activating a "Drift" setting. They also offer a performance ceramic brake option. All models will also have what Mercedes is calling "AIRPANEL", which is basically an active aerodynamic flap in the front bumper, which works in-joint with the active rear spoiler to create some pretty nifty aero. The new Supersport view adds AMG-specific information.

On the outside, the AMG GT 4-Door is easily recognizable as a member of the GT family with its long hood and Panamericana grille. This highly interactive system, which features Alexa-style voice assistant features, will show up first on the next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class before rolling out across the rest of the maker's line-up.

Mercedes-AMG will be offering two engine options on the AMG GT 4-Door coupe. And there's an optional "Energizing" comfort control that uses things like the climate control, seats and ambient lighting to either relax or refresh the driver. The blend of high individualisation and sports vehicle technology, placing yet more focus on the requirements of discerning customers, is also clear from the wealth of equipment packages and individual options. The two V-8 models will go on sale early in 2019, with the GT 53 not set to reach dealer showrooms until mid-2019.
