Two new sketches via MBPassion have shed some light on how Mercedes’ new sports car, the AMG GT is going to look. Scheduled for a world debut on the 9th of September this year, the AMG GT replaces the popular SLS AMG. The new car’s design is said to grace six keywords: ‘Iconisation’, ‘Stimulating Contrast’, ‘Stunning proportions’, ‘Freeform and Geometry’, ‘Refinement’ and ‘Natural Attraction’.
As known, the AMG GT’s proportions will benefit from the Coke bottle design philosophy, which includes a mile long bonnet, a small, narrow glasshouse followed by a stubby boot and minimal rear overhang- taking care of the ‘Natural Attraction’ and ‘Stunning Proportions’ bit. The car will be low and as wide as its predecessor, but will be shorter in length. Mercedes’ new diamond grille will do the honors in the front, straddled by small headlamps and AMG specific bumper work.
There’ll be a character vent on the strong flanks behind the front wheel arches. The sides have been kept simple, yet it does appear refine and restrained, because the proportions are going to rule the roost on this one.
The rear window will be one swooping end to the roofline, unlike the SLS AMG, which had a narrower rear window and an abruptly ending roofline. It’ll have neat, slim tail lamps like the one’s slapped on the delicious new S Class Coupe’s back. Also, there’ll be rectangular, quad exhaust this time around.
