MERC’S FASTER FASTBACK
If you think the CLS53 is too tame and can’t wait for the CLS63, you might want to consider the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe instead.
Its moniker is going to befuddle buyers, though, because it’s not a coupe or a notchback saloon. It’s actually a fastback like the Porsche Panamera. The AMG GT 4-Door Coupe can be specified with unique features not found in the CLS, such as active aerodynamics, rear-wheel-steering and a “Race” driving programme that includes a Drift Mode. The AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is available in three variants – the spicy AMG GT53 with 435hp, the hotter AMG GT63 with 585hp and the torrid AMG GT63 S, which kicks out 639hp and is capable of crushing the century sprint in 3.2 seconds.
