Everyone at Mercedes openly calls it their 911 competitor. AMG has now given us technical details of the all-new in-house 4.0-litre twin-turbo engine. The car has its own home on the interweb with blurry action clips, shadowy profile shots and the odd line drawing.
It’s going to be a proper sports car. Though it’ll end up half the price of the SLS, it will still be proper fast. It uses an aluminium spaceframe, and the engine makes 510bhp and 480 torques. The engine might be new but it uses the seven-speed DSG transaxle from the SLS (signalling plenty of scope for later power upgrades…)
Mercedes hasn’t yet officially mentioned it, but we hear this car will be called the GT S. Later there will be a non-S edition with about 10 percent less power.
