With the new AMG GT 43 4MATIC+ 4-door Coupé Mercedes-AMG is extending its sports car offering with the addition of an entry-level model at a very attractive price/value ratio. The new 270 kW (367 hp) model and the 320 kW (435 hp) variant already presented in March 2018, namely the AMG GT 53 4MATIC+, can be ordered from Mercedes-Benz sales partners with immediate effect.
The 3.0-litre 6-cylinder in-line engine in the AMG GT 43 4MATIC+ produces 270 kW (367 hp) and delivers maximum torque of 500 Nm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and the top speed of 270 km/h meet the requirements of customers in many markets. The EQ Boost starter-alternator delivers additional short-term output and torque of 16 kW (22 hp) and 250 Nm, respectively. It combines the starter and alternator in one electric motor, is integrated between the engine and transmission and feeds the 48 V on-board electrical system. This innovative feature as well as the intelligent two-stage turbocharging with additional electrical compressor and exhaust gas turbocharger combines hallmark AMG Driving Performance with low fuel consumption.
The characteristic exterior design, the innovative interior with three rear variants and the display switches in the centre console are identical to those in the AMG GT 53 4MATIC+. The same applies to the fast-shifting AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission and the active aerodynamics with AIRPANEL air control system in the front apron and extending rear spoiler. Also identical are the standard appointments and the comprehensive selection of individualisation options through to the styling packages and large range of light-alloy wheels.
