Cost-friendly version of the 4-Door AMG GT offers a potent combination of performance, outstanding engineering and versatility.

Mercedes-Benz today announced pricing for the GT 53 variant of the highly anticipated Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. Starting at $99,000, the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 is powered by an AMG-enhanced 3.0-liter inline-six turbo engine with EQ Boost and Electric Auxiliary Compressor that produces 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft peak torque. EQ Boost utilizes stored electric power from the 48V battery through an Integrated-Starter-Generator, a powerful electric motor that combines the functions of a starter and an alternator. This EQ Boost unit assists the internal combustion engine with up to an additional 21 hp and 184 lbs-ft of torque at low engine speeds. The Electric Auxiliary Compressor, exclusive to  all AMG “53” models, assists in spooling the engine’s exhaust-gas-driven turbocharger quickly at low-to-mid RPMs, and it is capable of reaching speeds of 7,000 RPMs in less than a third of a second. Now that’s impressive.

Standard feature highlights for the GT 53 include: AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT nine-Speed transmission, AMG Performance 4MATIC+ fully variable All-Wheel Drive, AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes, AMG Ride Control Sport Suspension, silver painted six-piston front brake calipers, Burmester surround sound system, COMAND Navigation, AMG Track Pace COMAND Application, and electronically-deployable rear spoiler.

Drawing directly from the successes of the legendary SLS AMG and AMG GT, the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is the third vehicle developed independently by AMG, and its first unique four-door sports car. This expansion of the AMG GT family opens up the segment to those looking for a vehicle that combines the impressive driving dynamics of the two-door AMG GT with everyday practicality. The AMG GT 4-Door Coupe offers ample space for four passengers, with the top-notch, unparalleled level of performance expected from Mercedes-AMG.
