At the center of the Mercedes-Benz presentation at this year’s New York International Auto Show is the North American premiere of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept and the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ Wagon.
Mercedes-AMG GT Concept
Unique performance paired with high efficiency and emotional design. That’s the statement clearly made by the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept, which sets yet another milestone for Mercedes-Benz’s highly successful sports car and performance brand, presenting innovative features such as its high-performance hybrid powertrain. The performance hybrid system in the GT Concept combines a highly efficient V8 petrol engine with a powerful electric motor and a modular battery concept. The system offers a compelling electric range and, in its latest iteration, can generate an output of up to 600 kW (816 hp). The GT Concept dispatches the sprint from 0-62 mph in less than three seconds, putting it on par with a super sports car.
Key features of the design of the new E-Class Cabriolet are the long bonnet, the taut soft top and the muscular rear end. In keeping with its sporty look, it offers exceptional performance paired with outstanding comfort for four occupants. With its widescreen cockpit and state-of-the-art assistance systems, the open-top four-seater comes with the same technology as the Mercedes Saloon—powerful engines and comfortable chassis guarantee a luxuriously sporty driving experience.
AMG E 63 Wagon
In the new estate versions of the E 63 4MATIC+ and the E 63 S 4MATIC+, Mercedes-AMG combines its typical driving performance with the high usability and intelligence of the E-Class. The technology keeps the promise made by the highly individual, sporty design. Superlative performance is supplied by the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with up to 612 hp and the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive. The new Wagon’s 0-62 mph acceleration of 3.5 seconds is best-in-class.
