  • [NEWS] Watch Out Panamera: Here's The Mercedes-AMG GT Four Door

    We know that Mercedes is making a four-door version of the AMG GT, and it's finally here, take a look:

    We rather like it, we think this is what the new CLS should have looked like. The four-door GT looks rather good, and definitely a better looking thing than the new CLS.

    We thought that the four-door GT would simply be offered with the two-door GT's V8 engine, but nope, to confuse you even further, the GT will be offered in three trims; the GT53, GT63, and GT63 S.

    The 53 is offered with Merc's new 3.0L straight-six lifted from the CLS53, churning out 432 horsepower, and it also has Merc's EQ boost system which gives an extra 22 horsepower to help with turbo-lag.

    Of course, if puny little straight-six engines disgusts you, there's always the 63's 4.0L V8 turbo engine, although it uses the wet-sump lubrication version rather than the GT's usual dry-sump. Regardless, the standard 63 comes with 577 horsepower while the 'S' packs 630 horsepower, with a 0-100km/h time of 3.4seconds and 3.2seconds respectively.

    The interior also looks quite amazing, it's like they've combined the CLS' and the GT's interior; a swoopy middle console with eight buttons laid out as a V8 going up to the CLS-style dashboard. Making the interior feel somewhat sportier but still very elegant at the same time, we're definitely liking this. We could make-do without the yellow seatbelt though.

    We definitely prefer the GT than the rather quirky-looking CLS, but we have to ask: what's the point? The GT is mostly based on the E-Class and CLS, the main difference is that the GT is slightly longer in wheelbase and it has a rear-axle system from the two-door GT. Still, for those who were disappointed in the CLS' new look, the GT is the answer to our prayers.

    We'd like to take the GT63 please, but if possible we'd leave that rather ugly fixed spoiler in the factory. What would you have? This, or a Porsche Panamera?
