    Unique performance paired with high efficiency and emotional design. That’s the statement clearly made by the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept, which sets yet another milestone for Mercedes-Benz’s highly successful sports car and performance brand, presenting innovative features such as its high-performance hybrid powertrain. “The GT Concept shows that clean mobility and amazing performance can go hand-in-hand. As a consequence, the four-door sports car is the first to receive our ‘EQ-Power+’ label, which we are now using to identify intelligent electrified drive,” says Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “This also makes the GT Concept the product-development pioneer within the remit of our CASE strategy.”

    The performance hybrid system in the GT Concept can generate an output of up to 816 hp.

    Performance hybrid system.

    The performance hybrid system in the GT Concept combines a highly efficient V8 petrol engine with a powerful electric motor and a modular battery concept. The system offers a compelling electric range and, in its latest iteration, can generate an output of up to 600 kW (816 hp). The GT Concept dispatches the sprint from 0–100 km/h in less than three seconds, putting it on par with a super sports car.

    Functionality and performance.

    “Our high-performance study provides a first glimpse of the third Mercedes-AMG vehicle to be developed entirely in-house. The new GT version carries the iconic AMG sports-car feel over to a four-seater model,” says Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Group Research & Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. The dynamic fastback also offers an extremely high level of everyday usability – courtesy of the large rear lid and the variable interior and luggage space. The four-door coupé thus unites a high degree of functionality with the excellent performance of the AMG GT sports cars.

    The show car is characterised by muscular proportions, large volumes and surface design that is both sensual and minimalist.

    The new generation of the E-Class.

    “The new Cabriolet completes our E-Class model range, which offers greater depth and diversity than just about any vehicle family worldwide. With it, we are merging two amazing Mercedes-Benz success stories – that of the E-Class as a whole, which has been the heart of our brand for six decades now, and of our cabriolets, which are major contributors to the fascination of Mercedes-Benz,” says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing and Sales.

    A luxuriously sporty driving experience.

    Key features of the design of the new E-Class Cabriolet are the long bonnet, the taut soft top and the muscular rear end. In keeping with its sporty look, it offers exceptional performance paired with outstanding comfort for four occupants. With its Widescreen Cockpit and state-of-the-art assistance systems, the open-top four-seater comes with the same technology as the saloon – powerful engines and comfortable chassis guarantee a luxuriously sporty driving experience. Britta Seeger: “Our open-air E-Class is a fully-fledged four-seater; virtually no other cabriolet offers this much comfort.”
