Geneva International Auto Show New 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé is cooler than a CLS

New 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé is cooler than a CLS

In Los Angeles last November, Mercedes-Benz introduced the new-generation CLS. In Geneva this week, Mercedes-AMG introduced something very similar, but ultimately completely different. It’s called the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé, a four-door variant of the current two-door AMG GT.

We’re not sure Mercedes-AMG needed to introduce this model, but sales numbers will probably confirm it was a good idea in the end. It may look like a CLS, it will likely be seen as more exclusive and more high-end by potential buyers when it hits the market later this year.

It will feature three engines starting with a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter six-cylinder developing 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque in the GT 53 4Matic+. That will get you to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds thanks to a supplemental boost that adds 21 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.

Next up is the GT 63 4Matic+ which features a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 good for 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. You’ll get to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds. And if that’s not enough, then Mercedes-AMG has the GT 63 S 4Matic+ for you. Same engine, but power climbs to 630 horsepower while torque settles at 664 pound-feet. That’s good enough to get you to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds.

As you may have noticed, every Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé will get 4Matic all-wheel-drive. That’s something you won’t find in the two-door GT, so I guess you’ll just have to get both.
