The new AMG GT to adopt a closed-roof version of the new SL’s platform

The next Mercedes-AMG GT has been spied for the first time, flaunting its new SL-derived chassis

The new AMG GT to adopt a closed-roof version of the new SL’s platform

The prototype clearly displays these new attributes, with a shorter bonnet in relation to the size of the cabin, although its low height over the front wheels might suggest the GT will retain a dry-sumped variant of AMG’s 4-litre V8. This is in contrast to the new SL Roadster, which maintains the wet-sump M177. It’s unknown whether the GT will also ditch the SL’s plus-two rear seating, but given the new GT’s obvious correlations to its chief rival, the

Porsche911, we wouldn’t be surprised by either scenario.To correspond with the differing moniker, the new GT will also have a unique look to the SL, with a nose that looks to mimic the previous generation, with narrower headlight units that draw up the front wings in contrast to the SL’s sleeker low-mounted units. The grille also looks to sit lower by contrast, and with a larger main opening, featuring AMG’s typical vertical slats.

13 The prototype clearly displays these new attributes, with a shorter bonnet in relation to the size of the cabin, although its low height over the front wheels might suggest the GT will retain a dry-sumped variant of AMG’s 4-litre V8.Mercedes-AMG hasn't done anything (too) crazy with the current-generation G-Class yet, so tuner Brabus is taking matters into its own hands.in 2012, this was before anybody had driven the first AMG hot hatch, pre-SLS Black Series and way, way before the tie up with Aston Martin.► Lambo's electric and hybrid plans explained ► Aventador replacement to be a PHEV ► And a pure-electric GT is on the cards Lamborghini has a new chief technical officer: Rouven Mohr.

This is in contrast to the new SL Roadster, which maintains the wet-sump M177. It’s unknown whether the GT will also ditch the SL’s plus-two rear seating, but given the new GT’s obvious correlations to its chief rival, the Porsche 911, we wouldn’t be surprised by either scenario. It's called the 800 Adventure XLP Superblack with 789 horsepower and a set of portal axles. To correspond with the differing moniker, the new GT will also have a unique look to the SL, with a nose that looks to mimic the previous generation, with narrower headlight units that draw up the front wings in contrast to the SL’s sleeker low-mounted units. Written by Chris Harris, it suggested that the new track-focused C-Class might in fact be the perfect road car for the UK:"Running sticky Dunlops, the C63 BS (that's Black Series to you lot tittering at the back) is a remarkable concoction of seemingly conflicting personalities: supple, relaxing, exciting, composed and utterly hair-brained. The grille also looks to sit lower by contrast, and with a larger main opening, featuring AMG’s typical vertical slats. Brabus started the project by chopping off the sheet metal behind the rear seats to create a small cargo box. 13 The GT’s rear end retains the hatchback opening like before, with a more defined leading-edge above the rear lights. Mohr – an engineer who has been at Audi since 2008, with a two-year stint at Lamborghini – doesn't need to worry about 2022, which will see two Huracan and two Urus launches.

The rear lights themselves look to have more of a lozenge-type shape and internal signatures reminiscent of the AMG Project 1 rather than the S-class like graphics of the SL. Several carbon fiber add-ons add a finishing touch to the over-the-top look that Brabus seeks to achieve.. Inside, we expect things to be more broadly carried over from the SL, as the interior layout is largely defined by the integration of the large MBUX touchscreen interface. The question of how far AMG will take the next GT remains more of a mystery, as the top-spec GT will likely include the E Performance hybrid system that will increase power, but also weight. We can't make this up. Therefore, any notion of a GT R -replacing model that will have an increased focus on direct handling and light weight will likely have to take a different path, leaving the door open to all sorts of interesting derivatives. The SLK simply wasn't very good, the CLK was utterly wonderful, and the SL didn't make sense beyond tarmac that wasn't very flat, very smooth, and very wide. Mercedes-AMG has not confirmed when the GT will be revealed, but with the SL’s launch phase now complete, and the two likely sharing much of their underlying elements, it could be ready to go sooner than we may think. Of course, Brabus is willing to let customers with a particularly fat wallet work with its design team to create a one-off-a-kind build. There will be two derivatives from the Huracan coming up.

Watch this space. . Portal axles make the 800 Adventure taller and wider than the regular-production G63. Obviously the C63 looked the part, as even the original SLK Black did, with its ludicrously broad arches and punchy stance.
