• Next Mercedes AMG GT Caught Playing In The Snow

Both the AMG GT63 and GT53 begin testing

Now that Mercedes is done with the new generation SL roadster, the company will focus its attention on a new generation AMG GT. The second generation AMG GT will be built on the same platform as the new SL and will be a serious competitor for the new generation Porsche 911. The only problem: the next AMG GT will only be offered as a coupe, as the Roadster will be replaced by the new SL.

Our spy photographers caught the future AMG GT out for a new testing session in the cold winter of Scandinavia.

Just like the new SL, the second generation AMG GT will be offered in two versions: GT63 - which was already caught testing back in January, 2022 and the GT53. It seems that both models were caught testing: the GT63 wears squared quad exhaust pipes, while the GT53 ends with four round pipes.

At a first look it may appear that the next AMG GT is just an SL with a fixed roof, but it is a lot more than that: the grille sits lower and the head lights have a different shape and a slightly more vertical position. On the side, the AMG GT will feature a fastback roofline, while in the rear the taillights will get their own unique look. Also, the AMG GT will only be offered as a 2 seater, unlike the SL which is a 2+2 seater.

Under the hood, the next AMG GT will be offered with the same 4.0 liter twin-turbo V-8 engine we’ve seen in the SL. In the AMG GT 55 version it will deliver 469 horses and 516 pound-feet of torque, while in the AMG GT 63 the output will go up to 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. In the upcoming future Mercedes will also offer a six-cylinder option and of course a more powerful Black Series version.

The new generation Mercedes AMG GT is expected to debut by the end of 2022 or in early 2023.
