We already know what the stylish interior will look like, but this is the first, albeit rather obscured glimpse of the exterior. It’s pretty much what everyone expected – SLS-esque proportions with a long nose, short tail and sloping roofline, large headlights with LED daytime running lights and narrow-set LED tail lights.
Through the video, we also get a good and proper earful of the glorious engine noises, set to come from AMG’s new 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 in at least three guises, from a base tune of about 480 hp (same tune as on the next C 63 AMG?) all the way to full-fat Black Series spec with around 600 hp.
Said to arrive in the “autumn of 2014”, the Mercedes-AMG GT was originally expected to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September, but it is now rumoured that we could get a first look as early as July at the German Grand Prix.
