Called the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept, the new super sports car is a four-door coupe that features 805 horsepower and what Mercedes is calling an “extremely powerful yet lightweight battery concept.” The battery works in conjunction with a V8 gasoline engine and electric motor, which are networked to get the best possible performance.
The 805 horsepower from its hybrid drivetrain is derived from the automaker’s EQ Power+ platform, which first appeared in the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Formula 1 car.
“With the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept, we are giving a preview of our third completely independently developed sports car and are extending the attractive AMG GT family to include a four-door variant,” explained Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The GT Concept’s body is wrapped in a “Hot Red” paint job, and features a Panamericana grille, newly configured headlamps, and side air gills. According to Mercedes, the hybrid also features “nano active fiber technology,” with “future-oriented” daytime running lamps—a first for the company.
No side-view mirrors, though
With more than 800 horsepower and the ability to go from 0-60mph in less than three seconds, this is one concept to keep an eye on. Although this isn’t expected to make it into production, we will likely see the automaker use these blueprints for future models.
