2. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Concept

With Beavis’ comment you can tell that Mercedes-Benz AMG has taken this four-door 805 horsepower sedan in a different direction, “The quietest AMG yet. I wonder how Porsche will feel about the styling?” Not to be confused, the Porsche four-door sedan has done well on the market, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo will do just as well, if not better. Clearly the competitors will be a Porsche or an Aston Martin.

I am told the concept will couple a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to an electric motor that Mercedes-Benz AMG says will total a whooping 805 horsepower.
