Listen to the 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT’s throaty V8 engine
Currently, Mercedes-Benz is busy putting the final touches on the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT. You may have seen images and videos of the prototypes before, but as we get closer to the launch, test mules have started losing some of their camouflage.
Reports suggest that the flagship variant of the 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT will be the hybrid-powered S E Performance. It is likely to get a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine paired with an electric motor. With a combined output of 831 hp and a mind-boggling 1,033 lb-ft of torque, it will be a force to be reckoned with.
A video of what is believed to be the Mercedes-AMG GT S E Performance has now surfaced online. The test car was spotted testing at the Nurburgring, giving us a chance to listen to the throaty V8 under the bonnet.
Another AMG-powered car that will soon be unveiled is the Aston Martin DB12. Sources tell us that the Aston-tuned twin-turbo V8 is likely to produce around 650-690 hp. It doesn’t sound much compared to the AMG GT 63 S E Performance, but that’s just the base variant.
