Watch New Mercedes AMG GT Sport Coupe Thrash Its V8 Around The 'Ring

The Mercedes-AMG GT is one of the most anticipated new car premieres of the year, with the countdown clock officially in play after the Germans announced its name and released the first official shots of its interior. Benz isn’t done testing the car, however, which is why we bring you these latest videos from the Nürburgring. The howling noise you hear from the exhaust tips comes from a newly developed 4.0-liter direct-injection V8 boosted by two turbochargers that will be shared with other, more affordable models in the range like the next C63 AMG. In the long-nosed AMG GT, the eight-cylinder unit will crank out some 480hp in entry-level trim and approach 600hp when it wears the Black Series edition badge. The fact that it will be significantly lighter than the SLS AMG (possibly tipping the scales under 1,400kg or 3,090 lbs), should help with its performance credentials. A first introduction is expected in the middle of summer with a motor show debut to follow later in the fall.
