The Mercedes-AMG GT has been rendered by our friends from IndianAutosBlog who used as foundation the official teaser image.

A couple of days ago Mercedes-Benz released a teaser video for the upcoming AMG GT and they also opened up a microsite where they posted a darkened image of the SLS replacement. Shoeb Kalania from IndianAutosBlog fiddled around with that pic and created a render showing a very potential look for the 911 competitor.

Gone are the SLS' gullwing doors but nevertheless the profile shows very attractive curvaceous lines with an extremely long hood and a sleek sloping roofline. Matching the exterior's beauty is the premium interior cabin for what Mercedes-Benz is describing as being a "monumental, unwavering engineering achievement."

Motivation will likely be provided by a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine delivering around 520 bhp (387 kW) but there are also talks about a lesser version with 480 bhp (358 kW) as well as a Black Series model outputting no less than 580 bhp (432 kW).

The teasing game will continue next month when the company will talk about the vehicle's dynamics, followed in July by performance details and in August when the design will be explained. Most likely, the Mercedes-AMG GT will be fully revealed online in September, before being publicly showcased in October at the Paris Motor Show. Sales should kick off late this year or early 2015.
