Facelifted Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe spied

Revised Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door coming in 2021 with plug-in hybrid power on the cards

We’ve spied a facelifted version of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe for the first time, which will go on sale in 2021 to take on the newly updated Porsche Panamera

Beneath the disguise we anticipate that cosmetic tweaks will be few and far between – the only appreciable difference between this test mule and the current production model is a new front bumper with slightly larger intakes. However, buyers will likely be able to choose from a few extra paint finishes and a couple of new alloy wheel designs.

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is closely related to the recently facelifted AMG E 63 S – meaning inside will feature a new sports steering wheel and a similar range of trim and upholstery revisions. The coupe should also adopt the saloon’s latest dual-screen 12.3-inch MBUX infotainment system.

Like the current car, Mercedes will continue to offer the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe with either a 429bhp 3.0-litre straight-six mild-hybrid powertrain or a 639bhp twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine. However, rumours are circulating that the updated model will also be available with a new plug-in hybrid system – potentially lifted from the upcoming AMG S 73 e.

The powertrain will be based on the same 4.0-litre V8 engine already used in the AMG GT 4-Door, albeit with the addition of a lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor mounted somewhere along the car’s four-wheel-drive system.

Mercedes-AMG is yet to officially announce any specs for the new performance PHEV powertrain, but executives have previously hinted that it’ll generate more than 800bhp – and that it’ll be capable of travelling more than 60 miles on electric power alone.

What do you make of the facelifted Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door? Let us know in the comments section below…
