Mercedes-AMG teases the new GT
Mercedes-AMG has released the first video and teaser images of the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT, set to replace the current SLS.
The teaser image shows the distinctive silhouette, with the long hood, pushed back cabin and a flowing contour that appear to be softer – especially in the rear window-trunk lid transition – than that of the SLS AMG, following a trend already seen on the recent CLA-Class, S-Class and S-Class Coupé.
A brightened version of the image (above) reveals some additional details, such as the trademark side vents and the different DLO layout featuring a small second window.
The powertrain is expected to feature a twin turbo V8 coupled with a rear-mounted seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The official video – reported below – follows the set of interior shots released back in April.
Additional details will be revealed prior to the debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show on the official microsite.
