A new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door has been spotted undergoing testing with camouflage disguising its revised front-end. Read on for full details on this V8-powered four-door supercar. 

  • Subtle styling tweaks
  • Will retain 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8
  • New hybrid-powered 73 model
  • Likely on sale in 2021
  • Expected to cost from £140,000

The Mercedes AMG GT 63 4-door hasn’t been around for very long, but Mercedes has decided it’s due a few a mid-life nips and tucks to help it keep pace with the likes of the Audi RS7, the new BMW M8 Gran Coupe and the recently revised Porsche Panamera.

New air intakes are likely to feature on the updated AMG GT 63 4-door’s front bumper.

New Mercedes AMG GT 63 4-door design

In terms of exterior design, the new AMG GT 63 4-door prototype looks almost identical to the current car. At the front, it has the same slotted grille but the lower half of the front bumper has been disguised in a camo-wrap, so it’s possible its huge air intakes have been tweaked for 2021.

Nothing has changed on the rear of this prototype’s.

The new car has retained its bulging bonnet, wide front and rear wheel arches and dramatic arching roofline. The rear end looks to be fairly unchanged too, with its broad LED rear lights and large quad-exhaust tips.

The AMG GT 63 4-door will come with the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as the current car. 

New Mercedes AMG GT 63 4-door engine

The current Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door’s heart is a monstrous 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This’ll be carried over into the new car, along with the nine-speed automatic gearbox and 4MATIC four-wheel-drive system.  The engine is currently offered in two different packages – the GT 63 with 585hp, and the range-topping GT 63 S with 638hp.

Watch our drag race to see how the AMG GT 4-door compares with an Audi RS7.

It’s likely that the facelifted car also be available as an AMG GT 73 hybrid version. This is expected to combine an electric motor combined with the current 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine to make a whopping 800hp.

The new car’s cabin should look very similar to the current model’s, shown here. 

Mercedes AMG GT 63 4-door interior

The new AMG GT 63 4-door’s interior hasn’t been spotted yet, but don’t go expecting any radical changes. It’ll almost certainly retain the old car’s design, but should feature a few software updates for the dual-screen infotainment system.

The new AMG GT 63 4-door is expected to be offered as a new hybrid-powered AMG GT 73 model.

Mercedes AMG GT 63 4-door price and release date

Pricing for the revised AMG GT 63 4-door is still to be revealed, but you can expect it to cost a smidge more than the outgoing model. In the UK, the AMG GT 63 S 4-door costs from £140,000. Future 73 models will be significantly more expensive, however.
