A small army of Mercedes-Benz GT (C190) pre-production prototypes has started testing before the model's unveil next year in different parts of the world, with the latest ones being spotted in Europe.
The following photo gallery depicts a different C190 than the one we showed you earlier today, the major contrasts residing in the more extensive body-cladding and the different color of the brake calipers.

The earlier posted model had red calipers and “regular” braking discs, while this one has golden calipers and differently colored discs, signifying a carbon-ceramic braking system.

Just like the upcoming facelift of it SLS AMG big-brother, the Mercedes-Benz GT will sport the new M177 engine, which is a four-liter twin-turbocharged V8 based on bonding two M133 four-cylinder engines from the 45 AMG models together.

In the C190, the V8 should offer a minimum of 485 hp, while a Black Series version might develop close to 600 hp, as much as the upcoming “standard” SLS AMG facelift, while its fuel consumption should pretty much make it a segment leader.
