The Mercedes-AMG family was enlarged this year when the GT 4-Door Coupe made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. While it is yet to be confirmed if the model will make its way to our country, a post on Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s Instagram page might be hinting it could happen.

The post itself features several photos of the GT 4-Door Coupe and the caption “more space, more power, more goose pimples,” which doesn’t really say if the model is on its way. Scouring through the company’s Instagram page, the last post about the model was made on March 15, with other posts since then involving models already available here (sans that big Maybach EV). With the renewed interest, is this cause for speculation?

As a recap, the GT 4-Door Coupe appears as a four-door version of the two-door AMG GT, and was first previewed by the GT Concept in 2017. It is offered in two forms, with the first being the GT 53 4Matic+ that sports the same powertrain as the CLS 53.

The setup includes a 3.0 litre turbocharged inline-six petrol engine with 429 hp (435 PS) and 520 Nm of torque. There is also an EQ Boost starter-alternator sandwiched between the engine and nine-speed AMG Speedshift TCT 9G automatic transmission, which provides up to 21 hp (22 PS) and 250 Nm of additional output. The result is a 0-100 km/h time of just 4.5 seconds, and a top speed of 285 km/h.

A more powerful version is the GT 63 4Matic+ that does away with the 48 V mild hybrid stuff and packs in a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 and nine-speed AMG Speedshift MCT 9G automatic transmission. The mill makes 577 hp (585 PS) at and 800 Nm of torque, good for a century sprint time of 3.4 seconds as well as a lower top speed of 310 km/h.

The most potent of the bunch is the GT 63 S 4Matic+, which has more power than the GT R – 630 hp (639 PS) and 900 Nm of torque – allowing for a 0-100 km/h time of 3.2 seconds and 315 km/h top speed. All models come with the AMG Performance 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system that can be set to be rear-wheel drive only when needed.
