Mercedes teases upcoming AMG GT
Daimler is preparing to launch its new performance flagship, the Mercedes-AMG GT. Succeeding and slotting below the current SLS AMG, the new GT is anticipated to take aim squarely at the Porsche 911. The German automaker gave us a pretty clear picture of what the interior will look like last month, and we’ve seen spy shots of the car testing (see below), but has now returned with a teaser video and micro-site previewing the upcoming new Benz halo.
Neither video nor micro-site give us much to go on, except to say, “This is what you get when a company unleashes its creative and engineering forces to combine the absolute best of all it has done into a single, monumental, unwavering engineering achievement.” Which, when it comes down to it, is really saying quite a lot coming from an automaker like Mercedes-Benz and its power-craven AMGperformance division. Follow the link to the microsite and watch the 50-second video below.
