Mercedes has unveiled the AMG GT at the Paris Motor Show.

Set to battle higher-end variants of the Porsche 911, the AMG GT is an "everyday sports car" that footsteps of the SLS AMG and adopts a rounded front fascia with a prominent grille that is flanked by LED headlights. Moving further back, there's a rakish windscreen, frameless doors and ventilated front fenders. The coupe also has a power deployable rear spoiler and slender taillights with sequential turn signals.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find a flat-bottom steering wheel, sport seats and a wide center console that ramps up to four circular air vents and a freestanding infotainment system with either a 7- or 8.4-inch display. The cabin also has a roof-mounted control panel and silver chrome, matte carbon fiber, high-gloss carbon fiber, black diamond or matte silver fiberglass trim.

The entry-level AMG GT is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops 462 PS (339 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 304 km/h (189 mph).

Moving up to the AMG GT S rewards buyers with a more powerful twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 510 PS (375 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra oomph, the model can rocket from 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds before topping out at an electronically-limited 310 km/h (193 mph).
