Mercedes-AMG has somewhat secretly shown the world a very strong study model of the AMG GT. This Mercedes-AMG GT Concept E Performance is on a stand at the IAA in Munich; a more than 800 hp plug-in hybrid.
Without making it widely public, Mercedes-AMG has rolled out this red-black AMG GT Concept E Performance and parked it in Munich. Planet Car News found the car there and made a video of it, so we can now introduce it to you. The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept E Performance is yet another chapter in Mercedes-AMG’s plug-in hybrid offensive and is probably mainly a follow-up to the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door 63 SE Performance unveiled in 2021.
Just like that powerful four-door plug-in, this Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé has a ‘more than 800 hp’ strong hybrid drivetrain that can be supplied with electricity via a plug. This almost certainly means that it is the same powertrain, with the 639 hp 4.0 biturbo V8 being supported by a 204 hp electric motor. The result is a system power of no less than 843 hp and a maximum torque of up to 1,470 Nm. The figures for the Mercedes-AMG GT may be slightly different, but that will probably be a marginal difference.
There is a good chance that such a hybrid top version, logically called Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé 63 SE Performance, will eventually actually come onto the market. Mercedes-AMG previously looked ahead in a similar way to the plug-in hybrid top version of the Mercedes-AMG C-class.
