Mercedes has released some new details about the 2015 AMG GT.
In the latest issue of the company's Driving Performance magazine, the brand says the model will have a "muscular, never ending front" and a "staggeringly beautiful rear." That's pretty vague but the article goes on to say the AMG GT will ride on an aluminum space frame that will ensure it is a "true lightweight."
The company is still being tight-lipped about specifications but they confirmed it will feature a new twin-turbo engine which will be connected to a dual-clutch transmission. Despite the lack of details, previous reports have suggested the model will use a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that develops approximately 520 bhp (387 kW). Regardless of the final numbers, Mercedes confirmed the car will be launched in March 2015.
The issue also features an interview with AMG CEO Tobias Moers who he says "With the Mercedes AMG GT we're confidently entering an intensely competitive field. Above all because we know that the Mercedes AMG GT can do everything, not just to survive there but to inspired new trends." He went on to say "The Mercedes AMG GT is an all-rounder with extremely sporty aspirations. Yet it's comfortable and can easily be used for everyday driving."
