The new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, the brand's new high-performance Gran Turismo offering, has been launched in Singapore.

15 Jun 2019 | Local News : Singapore

The Singapore launch of the brand new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe took place at the Ritz-Carlton on Friday, 14 June. The new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe melds dynamic performance suitable for the race track with the high everyday comfort of a Gran Turismo.

Sweeping lines and a sleek silhouette define the GT 4-Door Coupe's athletic disposition
Drawing on the expressive design language of the AMG GT family, the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe adopts a flowing silhouette with a low greenhouse and dynamic fastback, underscoring its sporty focus. 

The muscular front-end is characterised by a broad, low-drawn 'shark nose' under a stretched bonnet, LED head lights with carbon fibre elements, and AMG-specific radiator trim and front apron.

The broad and flat rear-end features narrow LED tail lamps with dynamic turn signals, while the multi-stage extendible rear spoiler also serves as an important element of the car's active aerodynamics. 

Eight buttons on the centre console, aligned in a V8 design, offer easy adjustment of the car's dynamic functions
Inside, there are a number of modern high-tech features, including eight high-resolution display buttons that form an innovative control panel in the centre console.

Also, the AMG Performance steering wheel features new AMG steering wheel buttons, while the fully-digital Widescreen Cockpit has a new 'Supersport' display style that underscores the car's dyanmic personality. 

The rear bench can also be configured in three ways. As standard, the GT 4-Door Coupe is a focused 2+2, but it can also be configured with a full three-seat rear bench, as well as the optional High-Class Rear Sears that includes a touchpad screen integrated into the console between the two rear seats. 

The rear bench can be configured with either two or three seats
At launch, two variants of the car will be available - the GT 63 S and the GT 53. The GT 63 S is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine producing 630bhp and 900Nm of torque, with power sent to all four wheels via the 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system.

This allows the GT 63 S to accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds. As standard, the GT 63 S comes equipped with an electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock, as well as rear-axle steering. 

The GT 53 features a 3.0-litre in-line six engine that produces 429bhp and 520Nm of torque. An integrated EQ Boost starter-alternator offers an additional electric boost of 16kW and 250Nm of torque, while also generating power for the 48V on-board electric system used to supply power to information systems in the cockpit.

The GT 53 is no shoddy performer, either, capable of hitting 100km/h from a standstill in just 4.5 seconds. 

The GT 63 S is powered by a 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine with 630bhp and 900Nm of torque
To deliver a wide-ranging dynamic capability suitable for both daily and track driving, the GT 4-Door Coupe has up to six AMG Dynamic Select drive programmes, accessible via the AMG steering wheel buttons.

A new feature within the Dynamic Select drive programs is AMG Dynamics - this integrated driving dynamics regulation influences the ESP control strategy, all-wheel drive system, rear-axle steering and rear-axle differential lock, thus increasing agility without negatively affecting the car's stability.

It utilises a variety of sensors to anticipate the driver's inputs, and tailors the car to suit the driver's driving behaviour and style.
