The AMG GT has gained two more doors and extra seats for added versatility
Aimed at the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7, the aptly-named Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is for those who like the AMG GT but just can’t stomach living with a two-door, retaining the style, pizzazz and most of the performance of the two-door. It’s long hood and Panamericana grille are instantly recognizable, while frameless side windows preserve the lines of the AMG coupe. As with the Panamera and A7, a liftback design makes it easy to get your stuff in the back.
Interestingly, the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is actually not built on a stretched version of the platform that underpins the two-door, instead sharing its mechanical bits with the midsize E-Class sedan. Robert Lesnick, Mercedes’ head of exterior design, stated:
“We wanted to keep the the GT family feeling, but the midsize rear-drive platform is totally different from the transaxle GT car, which is based on the SLS.”
The interior is more sophisticated and luxurious than what we find in the and goes beyond just merely offering rear seats that are roomy and comfy enough for real human beings. There is an Executive Rear Seat package that adds a 40 / 20 / 40 split-folding rear bench with a touchpad control system integrated into the center console, as well as a new performance fragrance that Mercedes-Benz claims provides “appealing, sporty scent to match the spirit of the performance brand.” Any idea of what a sporty fragrance might smell like?
Three versions of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe — the AMG GT 63 and 63 S and AMG GT 53 — will be available, all fitted with Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The entry-level Mercedes-AMG GT 63 is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that generates 577 hp and 553 lb-ft. of torque, going from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in a supercar-like 3.3 seconds on route to a top speed of 193 mph (311 km/h).
Boasting the same engine as the AMG GT 63, the AMG GT 63 S cranks out 630-hp and 627 lb-ft, taking just 3.1 seconds to hit 60 mph before reaching 195 mph (314 km/h) max speed.
Finally, the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 makes due with a 429-hp, 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo engine with EQ boost — a fancy name for what is essentially the 48V torque-assist systems utilized by other manufacturers. The electric EQ Boost is a beefy starter capable of augmenting the gasoline engine’s output, boosting it by as much as 21 hp and a whopping 184 lb-ft. of torque.
The setup allows the AMG GT 53 to accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in 4.4 seconds on to a top speed of 174 mph (280 mph).
Sales of the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe begin in early 2019.
Bentley Bentayga Speed Nabs “World’s Fastest SUV” Title
The luxury SUV can launch to 62 mph in under 4 seconds.
Bentley proudly boasts that, with a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h), the Bentayga Speed is the world’s fastest production SUV.
The 6.0-liter W12 engine found in the standard Bentayga has been tweaked to put out 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, providing enough propulsion to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds.
It’s worth noting that the 641 hp, V8-powered Lamborghini Urus is actually lighter and more powerful yet has the same top speed. The fact that the two SUVs are closely related makes us think there were some politics behind this head-scratching outcome.
In addition to the extra power, the Bentayga Speed provides a more dynamic driving experience than the regular Bentayga thanks to a retuned Sport mode and a stiffened suspension, while the exhaust note is throatier.
Designer gave the exterior a performance-theme characterized by dark-tint headlights, blacked-out grilles, a tailgate spoiler, and unique 22-inch wheels available in three finishes. Inside, one finds contrast stitching on the diamond-quilted upholstery and Alcantara trim, the first time the material has been used in a Bentayga.
The Bentley Bentayga Speed goes on sale in the second half of 2019 after making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
BMW M2 Coupe Edition Black Shadow Celebrates Success
The BMW M2 has surpassed the M3 as the best-selling M model, and the M2-Coupe Edition Black Shadow is a celebration of that sales triumph.
Unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the special blacked out M2 comes exclusively in Sapphire Black metallic and rides on 19-inch, black matte forged light alloys with a Y-spoke design. It also boasts a high-gloss black grille, a carbon finish for the exterior mirrors and rear diffuser, and race-inspired accents.
All mechanical bits remain unchanged from the regular M2, so power is provided by a turbocharged, 370 horsepower 3.0-liter straight-six engine that, when equipped with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, allows the Black Shadow M2 to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.3 seconds.
Compact dimensions combined with the exceptional chassis tuning gives it the handling chops to match the impressive speed.
Considered by many enthusiasts to be the true successor to the E36 M3, the BMW M2 managed to sell more than 12,000 examples in 2017. It is one of the finest performance cars on the market right now.
New Lexus UX Unveiled, Joins Crowded Small SUV Segment
Toyota’s luxury division has bolstered its SUV-crossover lineup with a compact CUV, the new Lexus UX.
Debuting at the 2018 Geneva Motor show and billed as a ‘gateway model’ for new urban customers “in a dynamic and growing” segment, the UX is essentially a Toyota C-HR but, fortunately, looks more expensive and upscale inside and out.
It rides on Lexus’ new GA-C (Global Architecture – Compact) platform — a variation of the Toyota New Global Architecture — and measures five inches shorter than the Lexus NX crossover at 177 inches (4,495 mm) long, which should make it easier to fit into those tight city parking spaces.
The exterior adopts many of the larger sibling’s styling cues such as the polarizing spindle grille and sculpted panels, though the full-width taillights are distinct. The interior is also an upgrade over the C-HR, featuring new seats, new materials, new tech and more refinement.
The Lexus UX launches in two flavors — UX 200 and UX 250h. The UX 200 gets its power from a new 168-hp 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that’s mated to a CVT, while the UX 250h pairs the same engine with a new fourth generation hybrid drive system that produces 176-hp. A new E-Four system grants the hybrid UX all-wheel drive capabilities by employing an additional electric motor on the rear axle.
The new Lexus UX goes on sale in December 2018.
