Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe Now Available With AMG Aerodynamic Package

Codenamed X290, the GT 4-Door Coupe is a bit of a mixed bag when you think about what Mercedes-AMG created this time around. The platform from the E-Class, looks from the GT and CLS, and performance of 63 S models is a melange that serves both as a tempting proposition and an affront to old-school Affalterbach enthusiasts.

On the other hand, the GT 4-Door Coupe is the three-pointed star’s response to the likes of the Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera. It’s no wonder that pricing starts at €95,259 in Germany, which is a lot of euros for the 43 that boasts an inline-six engine with EQ Boost hybrid assistance.

This being Mercedes, the Stuttgart-based automaker also has its intricate ways of making the customer spend a lot more than the advertised price, namely through an endless list of optional extras. One of the best examples is the aerodynamic package, retailing for €3,391 in Germany.

Available for all specifications excluding those with the chrome, carbon, and two hitch options, the aerodynamic package can be had even on the 43. It comes standard on the Edition 1, and the list of modifications starts with additional air deflectors, a fixed wing with a high-gloss black finish, sportier diffuser, more aerodynamic trickery on the rear and rear bumpers, as well as a prominent lip spoiler.

So far, Mercedes-AMG hasn’t uploaded the aerodynamic package to the U.S. configurator nor did ti mention anything about U.S. availability. In this part of the world, the cheapest GT 4-Door Coupe is the 53, which hasn’t been priced so far. On the other hand, the 63 and 63 S retail at $136,500 and $159,000 plus $995 for destination and delivery.

Over in Affalterbach, AMG is working on the 73 as we speak. Leveraging on the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in the 63 S, the range-topping model will be electrified to a certain extent in order to extract in the ballpark of 800 ponies from the powertrain. The golden standard is the GT Concept from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which develops no fewer than 805 horsepower.
