Mercedes-Benz is delivering a roomier coupe in the redesigned AMG GT.
The second generation of the two-door sports car debuted Friday at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California.
The 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT coupe arrives at dealerships in the first half of next year. A four-door grand touring electrified variant could follow. Mercedes did not release prices.
While two-door coupes and convertibles aren't big sellers, they bestow a "halo effect" on the product portfolio.
"AMG GT coupe is as much a marketing tool as it is a performance flagship for the brand," AutoPacific analyst Paul Waatti said. "Its allure draws potential customers into showrooms who might drive away with a more practical model from the Mercedes lineup."
Mercedes sold 852 AMG GTs last year in Europe, and 2,970 in the U.S., slightly down from 2021.
The next-generation coupe will be available in two models: the AMG GT 63 and the AMG GT 55.
A hand-assembled AMG 4.0-liter V-8 biturbo engine powers both models, which come standard with all-wheel drive.
In the AMG GT 63, the engine delivers 577 hp and a 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) time of 3.2 seconds. In the GT 55, the V-8 unit produces 469 hp and goes from 0-100 kph in 3.9 seconds.
