Today was the world premiere of the all new 4-door variant of the AMG GT at the Geneva International Motor Show. This model expands on the existing AMG GT line up and gives us the first vehicle exclusively designed by AMG with 4 seats! You have been seeing spy shots of this vehicle for months and it has been referred to as the GT4 or 4-door GT, and now the GT63 seems to be the name.
Yes, you should get on the order list immediately! There is definitely going to be a waiting list when it arrives late this year! I think that a lot of CLS drivers will see this as a possible upgrade from their current vehicle. I also expect to see a huge spike in my Porsche Panamera trade-ins. Huge.
No, we do not have the base pricing or the options list yet. I would expect it to be similar to the current GT models in colors and equipment possibilities. The info I do have shows that there will be three variants with escalating horsepower. I’m hoping that there will be an absolutely jaw dropping launch edition!
No, this is not a replacement for the CLS-Class. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS will be arriving this year as a complete redesign. It will be available in the CLS450, CLS450 4matic and the CLS53. While the CLS and the new 4-door GT will both be 4-door coupe in styling they will likely feel very different. In the same way that the GT Roadster and the SL63 AMG appeal to different buyers, the CLS and the 4-door GT will also be very different.
Yes, it is absolutely gorgeous and the designers have outdone themselves yet again! I think the GT is certainly winning the Geneva Motor Show and I am sure it will be winning in the showrooms too!
