Mercedes AMG GT: another timeless sports car?
Mercedes is replacing the SLS AMG with the AMG GT; they recently released a teaser on YouTube explaining the engineering behind the car and a teaser of what it will look like. The initial design looks more retro that the SLS AMG, almost like the classic piece of art Mercedes 300 SL.
The top-version of the AMG GT (GT-S) will have a biturbo 510 horsepower V8 engine, the engine is quite an engineering feat with a special coating on the inside of the cylinders to reduce friction losses. No conventional oil pan is required in the engine, moving the gravity closer to the road.
On the 9th of September the full design of the Mercedes AMG GT will be revealed, the car will be on display at the Paris Auto Show in October.
