The next-generation Mercedes-AMG GT has again been spied testing, having shed almost all its camouflage.

    The upcoming coupe will be built on the Modular Sports Architecture (MSA), shared with the Mercedes-AMG SL.

    The coupe features fairly evolutionary design language, retaining the same distinctive proportions as the outgoing car with a long bonnet, short rear deck and prominent shoulders.

    Styling appears slightly smoother at the front, while down back there are more squared-off exhaust outlets.

    With the latest AMG models, less powerful variants, along with the marque’s plug-in hybrids, typically feature circular exhaust outlets.

    Based on previous spy photos, Mercedes-AMG will offer a plug-in hybrid variant within the upcoming GT range. The upcoming line-up is also expected to feature a range of mild-hybrid powertrains as well.

    Photos of the plug-in hybrid feature circular exhaust tips as well as a charge outlet flap at the rear.

    It’s unclear what the interior of the new GT coupe will look like but it’s expected to share a similar layout to its SL counterpart.

    It’s unlikely to have the two rear seats of the SL, launching here in July 2023 exclusively in SL 63 guise.

    Removing the two rear seats for the GT coupe could allow Mercedes-AMG to strengthen and stiffen the aluminium MSA platform for a more track-focused set-up.

    Mercedes-AMG is yet to confirm what it will offer under the bonnet however it’s expected the GT could share powertrains with the SL.

    The SL range opens with the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder SL 43, which features a 48V mild-hybrid system and produces 280kW of power and 480Nm of torque.

    The more powerful twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8-powered SL 55 4Matic+ and SL 63 4Matic+ produce 350kW and 700Nm and 430kW and 800Nm, respectively.

    The GT 63 S E Performance will likely use the 4.0-litre twin-turbo plug-in hybrid V8 powertrain from the 63 S E Performance variant of the unrelated Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, which has total system outputs of 620kW and 1400Nm.

    The less powerful GT 53 may alternatively use a variation of the turbocharged 2.0-litre PHEV powertrain from the C63 S E Performance. Combined outputs of the C63 are 500KW of power and 1020Nm of torque.
