The four-door coupe Mercedes-AMG GT, which debuted at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, will have a new top-end version with the GT 73 prefix in the title. AMG management decided to release a production version of the concept, presented in the spring of 2017. On the eve of the New Year holidays, the company published on YouTube a video teaser of the future super-hybrid.
In the model line of the Mercedes-AMG GT 73 brand, it will take a step above the 639-horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S. Presumably, the serial sports car will be equipped with a hybrid power plant consisting of a 4.0-liter V8 engine and an electric motor. The total output of the power plant will exceed 800 hp From zero to 100 km / h, the super hybrid can accelerate in less than 3.0 seconds, which will allow the new product to compete in the market with the 680-horsepower Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, which accelerates to “hundreds” in 3.4 seconds.
The premiere date of the super-hybrid Mercedes-AMG GT 73 has not been officially announced. According to preliminary information, the unit will show the new flagship model at the Geneva spring motor show, and sales will start in the second half of 2020.
