As most of you know, the AMG-GT will be the first Mercedes-Benz in decades not to sport the “Benz” moniker in its official nomenclature, as the car is the second ever project that was completely developed in house by Affalterbach's nuttiest engineers.
Sporting a four-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with direct injection and the two-turbochargers situated inside the “hot inner vee” of the engine, the upcoming model should sport a naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration figure of under four seconds.
These figures should come thanks to both the 510 hp and 650 Nm (479 lb ft) of torque developed by the all-new V8 engine, but also thanks to an overall weight that should revolve around 1500 kg (3307 pounds) or even less, making it much lighter than the SLS AMG.
Speaking of the soon-to-be-out-of-production SLS AMG, the new Mercedes-AMG GT (C190) is apparently based as far as architecture goes on the aluminium spaceframe body of the modern Gullwing.
Thanks to a better use of aluminium and a shorter wheelbase and overall length, the AMG GT will apparently shed the weight of two passengers from the SLS AMG in standard guise, with a future Black Series variant to be even lighter. It does look fast in this video, doesn't it?
