Meet the New 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT: Porsche 911 Rival Leaks Ahead of Imminent Premiere

It looks like someone forgot there's an embargo on the all-new 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT, which will be lifted tonight at 10:58 PM EST (August 19, 4:58 AM CET). Therefore, they published a few images online ahead of the official unveiling.

The culprit seems to be UK's Autocar, according to a Redditor who was inspired to download a few images of the car and post them online. As a result, we know what to look for when it comes to the exterior design, as it is fully visible in these pictures from multiple angles.

It has an entirely new front end with sweptback headlights and a large Panamericana grille. The hood has a muscular design, and the bumper features three intakes, one below the main grille and two to the sides. We can see a pair of vents behind the front wheels and additional ones on the rear bumper. The taillights are thin, and this car features a large wing mounted on the tailgate. The rectangular quad tailpipes sticking out from the diffuser look the same as the ones on the platform-sharing SL 63, hence why we think this is the GT 63 variant of the German marque's sports model.

If that is correct, then it uses the ubiquitous bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8, which pumps out 577 hp (585 ps/430 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque in the roadster. Since it should be a bit lighter than its open-top sibling, it is likely that the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) will be displaced in 3.5 seconds or slightly less. The top speed might exceed 196 mph (315 kph), which is where the SL 63 runs out of breath. Look for additional powertrains when it comes to the new Mercedes-AMG GT, including a lesser V8 with 469 hp (476 ps/350 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) on the 53 model. Reports indicate an electrified S E Performance variant, presumably with 828 hp (840 ps/617 kW) and 1,084 lb-ft (1,470 Nm), is also in the works.

The quoted Redditor says they couldn't download any images of the interior as the post was deleted rather fast. But through the open tailgate, it is clear that we're looking at the same layout as in the latest-gen Mercedes-AMG SL. Therefore, it has a large portrait-oriented screen in the middle of the dashboard flanked by turbine-shaped air vents, a digital instrument cluster, and may the same steering wheel. Still, we expect the three-pointed star's performance division to give it exclusive trim and upholstery, as it would separate the two models. But all is about to be revealed soon, as we are only a few hours away from seeing the all-new two-door GT, which should launch right after the grand premiere.
