Mercedes-AMG has expanded its GT lineup by adding an entry-level GT model, christened the GT 43 Coupe. Departing from its sibling's twin-turbo V8 engines, this model has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, complemented by an e-turbo, mild hybrid assistance system, and rear-wheel drive. 


The AMG GT 43 does the 0-100 kmph stint in 4.6 seconds.


Visually, the GT 43 distinguishes itself from its V8-powered counterparts through a subtle yet revamped exterior design. Notable changes include a redesigned front bumper with larger air inlets, narrower front and rear fenders, and a cleaner rear bumper. Moreover, various customisation options are offered by the brand, including wheel sizes up to 21 inches, a fixed rear wing, packages featuring high-gloss chrome or black accents, and more.

AMG sports seats in Nappa leather upholstery are offered as standard. 


On the inside, the GT 43 gets an all-black treatment and features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 11.9-inch touchscreen for the MBUX infotainment system. Standard features include AMG sports seats upholstered in Nappa leather, with optional upgrades available through the Manufaktur personalisation programme.

Under the hood, the GT 43 houses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, paired with AMG's F1-inspired electric exhaust gas turbocharger and a 48V mild-hybrid system with a belt-driven generator. This powerplant belts out 415 bhp and 500 Nm of torque, delivered through a nine-speed multi-clutch gearbox to the rear wheels. Additionally, Mercedes claims a short-term power boost of 10 kW (14 hp) from the belt-driven starter generator.


Mercedes claims the least powerful version of the GT achieves 0-100 kmph acceleration in 4.6 seconds, with a top speed of 280 kmph. While specific curb weight details remain undisclosed, eliminating four cylinders and the AWD layout likely contribute to a substantially lower weight.
