Mercedes-Benz has taken the upcoming AMG GT to the Nurburgring where the sports car has been recently tested out.
In between releasing the first official images with it and detailing its engine for the first time, the German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is also testing out the upcoming AMG GT. The clip posted below is showing the sports car in action on the Nurburgring where it was wearing a white and black camouflage wrap. The AMG GT will replace the SLS AMG, despite being smaller, cheaper and less powerful, and it will compete against models such as the Porsche 911.
Mercedes-Benz is expected to use an interior design borrowed from the S-Class flagship, with a tablet like display, leather and some other tweaks. The exterior of the sports car will be influenced by the SLS AMG, with a long hood and some other similarities. Power will be provided by a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine, rated at 510 HP (375 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. No performance details have been announced yet. Reports are saying that the AMG GT might sport a hotter version, the Black Series, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
