2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door: The More-Door AMG - Review AMG's very own four-door is its most powerful model yet. The first ever AMG-fettled Mercedes-Benz was a four-door car, and in the Affalterbach tuning outfit’s early days, four-door Benzes were the exclusive recipients of its ministrations. More recently, of course, AMG has visited its special brand of magic on Mercedes models of all sizes and body configurations, from the A-class subcompact to the G-wagen SUV. But to date, the purpose-built AMG models have been two-door sports cars and roadsters. We’ve known for some time—certainly since the debut of AMG’s four-door concept car at last year’s Geneva auto show—that an AMG-exclusive four-door was in the works. Now, it has finally been revealed. Its official name, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door coupe, may be something of an anticlimax, but there’s plenty to get excited about here. First, though, a bit of clarification: Despite a model designation that suggests this new entry is an AMG GT coupe writ larger, the model is actually based on the E-class sedan’s MRA longitudinal-engine, rear-wheel-drive architecture. One look at it, though, and it’s clear that this is not merely a more sportified E63. The AMG GT 4-Door has its own body, with a low-slung silhouette and a steeply raked windshield. Out front, a vertical-bar grille further establishes a visual connection to AMG’s sports car. At the rear, the active trunklid spoiler adjusts its angle based on vehicle speed; on V-8 models a more extreme aerodynamics package is optional, which brings a larger front splitter, a modified rear diffuser, and a fixed rear wing that is manually adjustable. Most Powerful AMG Yet The car debuts in a trio of familiar model designations, and the three-engine lineup includes inline-six and V-8 offerings, all fed with forced induction. The GT53 is the opening gambit and uses the carmaker’s recently introduced turbocharged inline-six. It’s supplemented by an electrically driven supercharger and a 48-volt electric motor (a setup first seen in the new CLS53). As in the CLS53, the 3.0-liter powertrain produces a maximum of 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, with the electric motor contributing up to 21 ponies and 184 lb-ft. In combination with a nine-speed torque-converter automatic and 4Matic+ all-wheel drive, the combo is good for a 4.4-second sprint to 60 mph and a 174-mph top speed, according to AMG. Like other AMGs wearing the “63” designation, the GT63 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8. It’s paired with a slightly different nine-speed automatic—this one replaces the torque converter with a multiplate clutch pack—that incorporates AMG’s Race Start function. In the 4-Door model, output is 577 horsepower and 553 lb-ft. (That matches this engine’s numbers in the wildest version of the coupe, the track-monster AMG GT R.) AMG claims the GT63 can charge to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 193 mph. Naturally, there’s also a “63 S” version. That variant turns up the wick to 630 horsepower and 627 lb-ft—meaning that the most potent AMG GT 4-Door exceeds the output of the two-door sports car, not to mention that of the 603-hp E63 S, which currently holds the title of fastest four-door sedan at our Lightning Lap test. In this car, the S’s extra oomph shaves 0.2 second off the factory zero-to-60-mph time and adds 2 mph to the terminal velocity, for new figures of 3.1 seconds and 195 mph. In both GT63 cars, the 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive system features an electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential; a selectable Drift Mode, in which torque is directed solely to the rear wheels, is standard on the GT63 S and optional on the normal GT63. Brakes of Bronze All that go requires plenty of whoa, and AMG seems to have spent a considerable amount of energy on the GT 4-Door’s brakes. Or at least on the color of their calipers, which come in four different hues. The GT53’s internally vented and perforated rotors are squeezed by relatively humble silver-painted calipers. In the GT63, flashier red units—six-piston front and single-piston rear—grip larger rotors. The GT63 S has the same hardware, but the calipers are an even more visually arresting yellow. The V-8 cars can be further upgraded with carbon-ceramic rotors, whose bronze-painted calipers mark them as the ultimate setup. The 63-series cars ride on air springs (AMG Ride Control+), while the 53 version uses steel coils and adaptive dampers. Four-wheel steering is another exclusive feature of the V-8 model’s chassis. Below 62 mph, the rear wheels turn opposite of the fronts; at higher speeds, they turn in phase.

Top trumps! New BMW M5 vs. Mercedes-AMG E63 S… Now that the new, F90-generation BMW M5 has finally been officially revealed, the inevitable comparisons with a certain rival from Stuttgart have started. While we look forward to driving the new M5 back-to-back with the Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+, for now we’ll have to be content with comparing the two on paper. So, just how do these two super-sedans stack up? Let’s find out by having a look at five basic areas… 1. Engine: The Mercedes-AMG E63 S employs a 4,0-litre V8 fed by a pair of turbochargers. Peak power is rated at 450 kW from 5 750 to 6 500 r/min, while maximum torque of 850 N.m is spread from 2 500 through to 4 500 r/min. Claimed consumption, for what it’s worth, is 9,1 L/100 km. The new BMW M5 also uses a V8 but with a larger capacity at 4,4 litres. Peak power of 441 kW is on tap across a slightly wider range, from 5 600 to 6 700 r/min. Maximum torque is 100 units down at 750 N.m, but is again available across a wider band (1 800 – 5 600 r/min). Although it likely matters little here, BMW claims an economy of 10,5 L/100 km. 2. Transmission: The bruising Benz employs an AMG Speedshift MCT sports transmission (combined a wet start-up clutch) with nine forward cogs. Mercedes says this multi-clutch ‘box enables “more agile response times to be achieved”. The M5, by contrast, makes use of an eight-speed torque converter from the folks over at ZF. The Munich-based automaker promises that the new the M Steptronic unit will serve up “lightning-fast shift times”. 3. Driven wheels: The Mercedes uses the so-called 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive system, which features fully variable torque distribution between the front and rear axles (with an electro-mechanically controlled coupling connecting the permanently driven rear axle variably to the front axle). In the E63 S 4Matic+, the system also includes a “drift mode”, which transforms the car into a purely rear-wheel drive vehicle. Likewise, the new M xDrive system from BMW works with a central transfer case and multi-plate clutch that distributes drive fully variably between the front and rear axles. The system also includes a setting that renders the M5 a purely rear-driven vehicle, allowing for what the automaker calls “easily controlled drifts”. 4. Claimed acceleration: Partly as a function of the all-wheel-drive systems detailed above, both of these vehicles are substantially quicker to three figures than their rear-wheel-drive forebears. Mercedes claims a 0-100 km/h time of 3,4 seconds for its hottest E-Class, while BMW matches that with its new M5. For the record, both are electronically governed to 250 km/h, although Mercedes will optionally raise that to 300 km/h and BMW to 305 km/h. 5. Kerb weight: In the world of fast cars, weight always plays a crucial role. Mercedes-AMG claims that its E63 S tips the scales at 1 955 kg, while BMW says the new M5 comes in at 1 855 kg, sans driver. And that weight difference allows the M5 to match the E63 S in the 0-100 km/h sprint (well, on paper, anyway), despite being down on both power and torque. Which is your favourite?
