The prototype was equipped with a 4-liter gasoline turbo engine and an electric motor mounted on the rear axle. The total return of the power plant was 805 hp and it looks like a similar unit will still appear under the hood of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. Already, apart from the One hypercar, the GT 4-Door Coupe 63 S is the most powerful serial road Mercedes-Benz. But next year the status of the flagship should get a new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe GT73 with a 800-horsepower engine, as reported by Autocar.
British journalists have already found on the road tests hybrid prototypes in the body of the serial Mercedes , which indicates the proximity of the model to the premiere. In February 2018, Mercedes-Benz already registered the trademarks G73, S73 and GT73 4Matic +, so that in the near future a new hybrid engine may appear under the hood of at least three models. And they will be more powerful than the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, which has “only” 680 hp.
It is expected that the new GT73 will be able to accelerate smoothly in 3 seconds from a standstill to 100 km / h, and the model will drive up to 50 kilometers on pure electricity.
