Mercedes-AMG GT to be unveiled on September 9

The much anticipated Mercedes-AMG GT will be set to make its official debut come September 9. After months of teasing from Mercedes-Benz AMG, the public can expect to see the car completely undisguised at the Paris Motor Show, the following month.

The latest video from the official channel gives us a glimpse into the car undergoing various stages of testing, from sub-zero conditions to mileage runs in over 15 different countries.

From the video, we can gather that the new 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 will be available in two states of tune with the entry level – the basic ‘GT’, boasting 462 hp to 510 hp – sitting right between the V8 and V10 versions of the Audi R8, for the more powerful ‘GTS’ variant.

      It is grammatically correct since he’s not referring the Paris Motor Show as a location but an event

    Gregory Sze? He seems to be making his debut as a writer here. Were you taken into the team from the recent writer scout by Paul Tan and the gangs?
