Posted on: Apr 14, 2014 - 5:36pm IST
MB Passion Blog has updated new information on the successor to the Mercedes SLS AMG – the Mercedes AMG GT.
According to the site’s well-informed authors, the world premiere of the AMG GT would be at the Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l’Automobile 2014) which inaugurates to the media in the first week of October.
Mercedes would release first press shots of the car in September and start sales on October 6, 2014, the site reports today.
The new sportscar which takes on the Jaguar F-Type, would come in two variants. The front mid-engined vehicle would produce over 600 hp and reach 100 kph from a standstill in under 4 seconds. The weight distribution is nearly 50:50 (front:rear) and the wheelbase would be a tad shorter than the SLS.
MB Passion adds that the AMG GT would be built using more steel components for cost reasons, and the the plant in Sindelfingen, Germany, has been given the production.
