There are photos of the Mercedes-AMG GT coupe prototype of the second generation that appeared on the web. And they depict a hybrid version with a power plant, as in a Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance liftback. There is 843 horsepower and 1,470 Nm of torque on the five-door, and the same amount will be in the standard GT.

It is known that the coupe Mercedes-AMG GT of the second generation will share the platform with the roadster SL. Undoubtedly, the engine range will be unified to some extent. Certainly, the GT will hardly get a “turbo-four” M 139 with an electric turbocharger as SL 43 has, but versions with indices “55” and “63”, most likely, will be equipped with already known Biturbo engine V8 4.0.

Well, at the top there will be a plug-in hybrid with a power plant from Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance liftback. It combines a twin-turbo V8 4.0 engine and an electric motor in the rear axle, with a combined output of 843 horsepower and 1,470 Nm of torque. It is the most powerful production model from Affalterbach to date.

A camouflaged prototype of the two-door has already been spotted near the Nurburgring. In the photos, you can even see the charging port hatch under the right lamp, which confirms the presence of a hybrid power plant. At the same time, the stylish “stamping” here clearly is not for beauty – various sensors for collecting telemetry are attached to them.

According to preliminary information, the new Mercedes-AMG GT will debut before the end of the year. It will be available in a base version without an electric add-on, and the E Performance Hybrid will be available until 2023.
