Mercedes has released a new promotional video for the AMG GT, ahead of its debut next month.

In the latest clip, AMG CEO Tobias Moers says "We have definitely set new benchmarks in terms of performance, sound experience, driving dynamics and also the emotional experience with this new heart - the new V8." The latter is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 510 PS (375 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque.

AMG's Head of Engine and Powertrain Engineering, Christian Enderle, follows up by saying "The customer has a driving experience similar to a go kart. You can drive the vehicle with very, very high cornering speeds and the vehicle simply sticks to the road."

AMG's Michael Buscher also says the model weighs "quite a few kilograms" less than one of the benchmark vehicles. He also said the AMG GT will be lighter than many competitors.
