  • Mercedes-Benz Extends Its AMG Line

Somewhat surprisingly, however, the four-door GT does not yet get the all-new MBUX user interface that debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

Daimler and Mercedes-Benz have been teasing the 2019 AMG GT 4-Door Coupe (that's the official name by the way) for so long that there was some danger that the mystique about the latest AMG-class vehicle would fizzle.

BMW has the gorgeous M8 Gran Coupe (technically still the M6 Gran Coupe until the M8 comes out), Audi has the upcoming RS7 Sportback, based on the very pretty A7, and now Mercedes has this - the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. And, as you'd expect, everything about it is a bit hardcore. The sibling resemblance from the front is striking, with the four-door Coupe featuring the same long, low bonnet, vertically-slatted grille and three-part lower air intake. Both 63s come standard with a limited-slip differential and rear-wheel steering, as well.

Let's forget its styling for a bit, and quickly discuss the powertrains. There will be two AMG 63 V-8 variants with up to 630 horsepower that will go on sale starting in early 2019; an inline-six AMG 53 model with a mild-hybrid system will follow later in the year.

The Falcon 9 has evolved considerably since its first test flights to become the only fully reusable launch platform in the world. The 30W-6, will remain in geostationary orbit, which means it will follow the direction of Earth's rotation.

All versions of the GT 4-Door get an AMG performance-modified version of Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel-drive, here biased to the rear wheels.

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S is powered by AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that generates 630-hp and 627 lb-ft. However, in here, the V8's performance has been dialled up.

The final model is the AMG GT 53 4MATIC+ with 435 hp courtesy of 3.0-litre unit that is supported by a boost effect with an output of up to 22 hp and 250 newton metres of torque.

Mercedes estimates the AMG GT 63 and 63 S zero-to-60-mph times at a neck-snapping 3.3 seconds and 3.1 seconds, respectively. Drift mode is also available as an option on the regular GT 63. The V8 may have been slightly detuned in this spec - it's rated at 577bhp and 800Nm - but it's almost as fast.

Will the #MeToo movement upend the Oscars' red carpet charade?
It's about there being an accusation that's alive, and until they sort it out, it's really on E! News and shouldn't be on us.... The producer, Aileen Gram-Moreno, filed a complaint about the matter to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Alongside the two barking mad V8 engines, there's also a 3.0-litre bi-turbo six-cylinder petrol that churns out 430bhp and 520Nm. It can accelerate from 0 to 62MPH in 6.2 seconds. Above that speed, the rear wheels turn in the same direction to create more stability.

The interior looks familiar but it's more like the new CLS in here than the AMG GT.

Inside, the designers maintained the "fighter jet-like feel" for the driver's seat - as all the equipment is tilted towards it - but have added new features, such as a performance steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons, Mercedes' dual-12.3-inch Widescreen Cockpit display and a fleet of premium fixtures.
