2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 and GT 53 Models Revealed

Back in Germany though, AMG have taken the covers off of two new models which join the ’63’. Whilst we will have to wait a bit longer to share our impressions of the new GT, we can at least confirm the specifications of the models that join the range.

The Mercedes-AMG GT 43 gets a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder in-line engine. It produces 367 hp and delivers maximum torque of 500 Nm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes just 4.9 seconds and it has a top speed of 270 km/h. Mercedes-AMG continues to roll out its EQ Boost starter-alternator which adds an additional 22 hp and 250 Nm for short periods of time.

EQ Boost is Mercedes-AMG’s performance hybrid system. Based on a 48 volt system, an integrated starter motor is teamed with an electric compressor to provide plenty of low down power. Essentially, EQ Boost fills the gaps a conventional turbocharger leaves when spooling. The power required to run the 48 volt system is recuperated kinetically making it extremely efficient and less costly than a plug-in hybrid.

The second model, the Mercedes-AMG GT 53, gets the same 3.0 litre 6-cylinder power unit but benefits from increased performance, churning out 435 hp and 520 Nm of torque. The EQ Boost system is almost exactly the same and allows for a 4.5 second 100 km/h sprint in the AMG and a 285 km/h sprint. Both cars get an AMG 9-speed transmission and Airpanel active aerodynamics.

Both cars are identical when it comes to interior design. With a large amount of customisation options. The Mercedes-AMG GT 43 will cost 95,259.50 euros in Germany including 19% VAT, the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 will retail at 109,182.50 euros.
