Mercedes-Benz: AMG GT News **2019 4-Door Coupe Revealed (page 4)**

From here: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...c190-spy-shots

Talk of a new sports car built along the lines of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG dates back all the way to 2011, with numerous reports on the car, which was previously thought to be called an SLC AMG, emerging over the years. A very early test mule based on the SLS was spotted in 2012, though plans for that car were shelved on the basis it would be too expensive compared to its intended rivals, namely, the Porsche 911, Audi R8 and even Nissan's GT-R.
Mercedes-Benz apparently went back to the drawing board and devised a new sports car, as we now have spy shots of a prototype for it, which our sources tell us shares little with the SLS. The new car, which carries the internal code C190 and is rumored to be called the AMG GT, will target younger buyers than those of the retro-inspired SLS, and its styling, which already appears much more modern than that of the SLS, will reflect that.

It will have traditional doors and its engine, an AMG-built V-8, mounted up front. It’s not clear if all-wheel drive will be offered, but given AMG’s newfound love of all-wheel-drive cars it’s entirely possible. Another indication that all-wheel drive may at least be offered is the sighting of a Nissan GT-R testing alongside it in some of the shots.

We do know it will be significantly smaller than the SLS, as the spy shots confirm, meaning a lighter curb weight. A new aluminum spaceframe structure has been developed, which should help keep weight at or below 3,300 pounds. The SLS, which also features aluminum construction, weighs more than 3,600 pounds.

One likely engine option is a version of AMG's latest 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8, although a smaller twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 said to be in the works is also possible. Two different power outputs are expected, as evidenced by the different exhaust pipes on the prototypes. The most potent should offer upwards of 600 horsepower. AMG’s seven-speed SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch ‘box, meanwhile, will handle gear changes. It will be mounted at the rear to help even out the weight distribution.

The launch of the SLS AMG GT Final Edition at the recent 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show represents the last opportunity for customers to order the SLS AMG, as this new sports car will be replacing it. A reveal of the new sports car, whatever it’s called, is expected in the second half of 2014, with sales to start shortly after. A convertible is expected roughly one year after the launch of this coupe version, and it’s almost certain an even higher performance Black Series model will eventually be launched.

Compact AMG hardtop sports coupe probably out of my realistic price range. Can't wait to see some de-camo-ed shots.

I love the "pilot feel" of the interior.

And hell yes to a black headliner! Love mine, and makes quite a difference.

Jalopnik posted a story earlier stating that "Benz" would be dropped off of the official name, instead making it the Mercedes-AMG GT.

Some info from here: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...engine-gallery

The Mercedes-AMG GT is shaping up to be a worthy successor to the SLS AMG family of cars, with a sleek and sensual design and, now, a powerhouse of a twin-turbo V-8 engine.

Displacing just 4.0 liters, the new M178 engine manages a specific output of just over 126 horsepower per liter, rating 503 hp total. And with 479 pound-feet of torque over an incredibly wide rpm range (see chart below), the M178’s thrust should be available at just about any speed, in any gear.

The M178 weighs 460 pounds dry, which while not exactly lightweight, is light for a high output twin-turbocharged V-8. Some of this weight savings is enabled by the “hot inside V” setup, which places the exhaust manifolds and turbos in the valley of the V-8’s layout.

Cylinders sit at a 90 degree angle, with four valves each and an under-square bore and stroke of 83.0 x 92.0 mm. Despite running 17.4 psi of boost pressure, the M178 sports a 10.5:1 compression ratio. Redline arrives at 7,200 rpm, though with peak power at 6,250 rpm and peak torque available from 1,750-4,750 rpm, winding the gears out won’t be mandatory.

Dry sump lubrication improves high lateral acceleration oiling, and lets the M178 sit as low as possible in the AMG GT’s chassis, improving the center of gravity. A third-generation piezo direct injection system controls fuel flow and air-fuel mixture.

Those with an affinity for engine specs might note that the new M178’s bore and stroke are identical to those of the CLA45 AMG’s—and that its 4.0-liter displacement is double the CLA45’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder. That’s not accidental—AMG has applied the lessons learned from the smaller engine to the larger one.

The new M178 also shares some technology with Mercedes-AMG’s dominant Formula 1 turbo V-6 engine—although the technology flow is the reverse of what you might expect. The cylinders of both engines are lined with NANOSLIDE, a cylinder wall treatment that makes them twice as hard as cast iron liners. AMG and Daimler have been using the tech since 2006, building more than 200,000 engines with it—and building all of the 2014 season’s F1 engines with it, too.

Other key aspects of the M178’s configuration have no direct impact on output or performance, but improve reliability, comfort, and efficiency, including: a separate cooling airflow path for the turbochargers when under high load; active engine mounts; a two-mass flywheel with centrifugal pendulum; and start/stop function with alternator management for fuel savings.

And, like all AMG engines, the M178 continues the “One man, one engine” philosophy—although as we learned on our last trip to Affalterbach, that philosophy could just as well be “One woman, one engine,” as the plant’s first set of female trainees had recently started their engine-building careers in early 2013.

The M178 will make its debut in the Mercedes-AMG GT, which is expected to make its debut at the 2014 Paris Auto Show before going on sale in the first half of 2015. Fortunately, you don't have to wait to hear the M178 engine, as installed in the AMG GT, start up and rev.

autocar, new Merc AMG GT

This is the new Mercedes-AMG GT – the second series-production model from Mercedes-Benz’s performance car division in Affalterbach, Germany, following on from the recently discontinued SLS AMG.

The rear-wheel-drive performance coupé shares elements of its body structure with its predecessor and is the first Mercedes-AMG model to use a newly developed twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine.

The GT is scheduled to reach the UK during the first quarter of next year.

“With the new GT, we are positioning Mercedes-AMG even more aggressively than to date,” said the CEO of AMG, Tobias Moers.

Buyers will be able to choose between a standard GT and a more powerful GT S, although only the GT S is planned for delivery initially. The two are set apart visually by different bumpers, tailpipes and wheels.

Pricing is not planned to be made public until orders start in October. However, it's believed that the standard GT will be priced from around £95,000, with the GT S commanding a premium at around £110,000. Either way, that's significantly less than the £168,485 of the SLS AMG.

The new car is 4546mm long, 1939mm wide and 1289mm tall. That means it is 92mm shorter than the SLS AMG it succeeds, although it is still the same width and is 27mm taller.

Both GT models are powered by AMG’s new ‘M178’ engine. Developed from scratch, the direct-injection 4.0-litre V8 is unique among production road car engines in featuring twin turbochargers mounted inside the cylinder banks.

This configuration makes for a compact design, optimum throttle response and reduced emissions, claims Mercedes-AMG, because of closely coupled catalytic converters.

The new engine receives dry-sump lubrication and is mounted behind the front axle line in what Mercedes-AMG describes as a front-mid positioning.

It provides the standard GT with 456bhp at 6000rpm and 442lb ft of torque between 1600rpm and 5000rpm. With added boost pressure and other internal tweaks for the GT S, the 90deg V8’s outputs rise to 503bhp at 6250rpm and 479lb ft from 1750-4750rpm.

Like the SLS, the new coupé is based around a lightweight aluminium body structure, which is claimed to weigh 231kg. In a bid to shed weight and reduce its centre of gravity, the new car eschews the heavy gullwing-style doors of the SLS in favour of regular front-hinged doors.

In standard GT guise, it tips the scales at 1540kg and the GT S comes in at 1570kg. This gives them respective power-to-weight ratios of 296bhp per tonne and 320bhp per tonne.

Channelling the GT’s reserves to the rear wheels is a revised version of the Getrag-engineered seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox used on the SLS. Mounted at the rear in a transaxle layout and offering both manual and automatic shifting, it helps to provide the new car with a 47 per cent front and 53 per cent rear weight distribution.

The revised gearbox offers up to five different driving modes: Controlled Efficiency, Sport, Sport Plus, Individual and – on the GT S only – Race.

Both models receive a standard locking differential. But whereas the GT receives a mechanical unit, the GT S is fitted with an electronic function that is claimed to provide greater sensitivity by varying the locking effect in acceleration and overrun.

Official performance figures give the GT a 0-62mph time of 4.0sec and a top speed of 189mph. The GT S is claimed to possess slightly sharper performance, with a 0-62mph of 3.8sec and a maximum speed of 193mph.

Combined cycle fuel consumption is put at 30.4mpg for the GT and 30.1mpg for the GT S, correlating to average CO2 emissions of 216g/km and 219g/km respectively.

Continuing developments brought to the earlier SLS AMG Black Series, the GT uses a damper unit to reduce what AMG describes as “undesirable rolling motion of the drivetrain” for added handling precision. Going one step further, the GT S also receives active driveline mounts, which continuously vary the damping effect and act independently on the engine and transaxle.

A bespoke double wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension fashioned largely from aluminium underpins the new coupé. Allied to electro-mechanical steering whose assistance alters with speed and lateral acceleration, as well as three-stage stability control, it is claimed to give the GT more neutral on-the-limit behaviour than the SLS.

The GT receives 19-inch wheels shod with 255/35 front and 295/35 rear tyres. The GT S sports a combination of 19-inch wheels with 265/35 tyres up front and 20-inch wheels with 295/30 rubber at the rear.

Alongside standard road tyres, the new car can be ordered with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as part of an AMG Dynamic Plus pack.

Helping to rein in the GT’s colossal performance are standard 360mm front and rear ventilated and cross-drilled steel disc brakes. They are increased to 390mm at the front on the GT S. As an option, buyers can specify the new car with carbon-ceramic discs that measure 402mm at the front and 360mm at the rear, bringing further savings in unsprung weight and performance gains.

The styling of the GT retains the exaggerated proportions of the SLS, albeit with more contemporary detailing. As well as receiving front-hinged doors in preference to the SLS’s gullwing arrangement, the new Mercedes-AMG model adopts a liftback-style tailgate in place of a conventional bootlid.

This is intended to improve the car’s everyday practicality by allowing easier access to the luggage compartment, whose capacity is put at 350 litres.

As part of efforts to provide the new car with greater handling prowess than its predecessor, the GT also boasts slightly smaller dimensions than the SLS. Exact figures have yet to be revealed, although Mercedes-AMG officials have confirmed that the new car has a shorter wheelbase and more compact overhangs than its predecessor.

Among the aerodynamic developments is an active rear spoiler. It deploys from the rear of the tailgate at speed to increase the car’s downforce.

Rumours have suggested that a roadster variant of the GT could be launched in 2016, but these have been denied by Mercedes-AMG, which is keen to see the new car positioned as an uncompromised racer for the road.

“The car is manufactured according to our motto ‘Handcrafted by racers’, which perfectly encapsulates our heritage and spirit,” said Moers.

The cars the Mercedes-AMG GT must beat

The new Mercedes-AMG GT is launching into a very crowded segment. A couple of years ago, Lamborghini revealed that the market for what it calls “super-sports cars” had taken a huge hammering during the global credit crunch.

Sales at the tail end of the boom in this market had bulged globally to about 35,000 vehicles annually. After the crunch, this niche shrank back to just 25,000 units, and although it will have risen somewhat over the past 24 months, this is still a very hard-fought niche.

It is, of course, a potentially highly profitable segment, as Porsche’s 911 Turbo proves, with its industry-leading cash profit per unit. Car makers are clearly aware of this and there are plenty of new products in the super-sports car market.

Lamborghini has just refreshed its range and McLaren’s upcoming P13 family will be aimed at this market when it arrives in September 2015. A batch of new Aston Martins are also planned over the next few years (ironically, sharing much of the AMG GT’s powertrain and electrical tech). Ferrari, the strongest player after Porsche’s range-topping 911, is committed to regularly replacing its models to stay at the cutting edge. An all-new Audi R8 is expected next year, too.

But the AMG GT is not just about pure sales performance. The company has been on a mission for the past few years to reduce the average age of Mercedes buyers. The AMG GT is a big part of Merc shaking off its ‘old man’ image.

Indeed, the CLA baby saloon has led the way, with buyers around 10 years younger than the company average, and ‘conquest sales’ are said to be running as high as 80 per cent for the CLA in the US.

looks like they finally upgrade to a Ipad holder, instead of glue.

But damn, love Everything about the car. especially light weight + High HP/Torque.

at $100k, it goes head to head with GTR on performance and value.

But Nissan should be proud too, when AMG uses your car as bench mark, it means you have done something right.

Where is our Vapor car?

Thats actually kind of a bummer, hadn't noticed til now.
Gull wing doors are mega heavy.
This car is shorter and much lighter than the SLS.
They got it right.

hmmmm. I don't really know if I like it. Look like a SLS, F Type, E Type, and a Panamera had a defunct baby....

However, it's believed that the standard GT will be priced from around £95,000, with the GT S commanding a premium at around £110,000

given that cars in euro are usually more expensive than the ones in the US. so $100k sounds about right with the exchange rate included.

This.

So this is a semi-replacement for the SLS AMG?
