Mercedes-AMG has officially expanded the GT lineup with the debut of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe. The 4-door coupe looks deadly, but the engine specs are going to be even deadlier. The flagship GT63S boasts prodigious outputs of 470kW and 900Nm, making it the most powerful application of AMG's venerated 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 to date.

For the US, this AMG GT hatchback sedan will be exclusively a four-door, four-seat fastback, though a five-seater will be offered in some markets. That counts for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint of 3.2 seconds and a top velocity of 315 km/h (196 mph). The Germans are no doubt at the forefront when it comes to balls-out, ultra-fast super-saloons, and the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is the latest combatant.

The diesel, fitted to 180d models, produces 116hp and achieves a combined fuel economy of 68.9mpg. The slightly de-tuned variant of the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo will make 585 bhp and 800 Nm of peak torque. Just to re-iterate, these are four door coupes and can seat 4/5 people. Which is a good thing if you're looking for more luxury and a bad thing if you want something sportier. Now endowed with 385 horsepower, the freshly invigorated mill will turn its newfound grunt into forward motion with the help of Mercedes-AMG's rear-biased 4Matic all-wheel-drive system and nine-speed automatic transmission.

The 63 S is capable of accelerating to 60 miles per hour in 3.1 seconds and hitting a top speed of 195 miles per hour while riding on air. In the drift mode, all the power churned out is sent to the rear wheels. In addition, the V8-equipped models are available with active rear-wheel steering for improved handling prowess.

Just as important for keeping the C43 competitive with the excellent Audi S4 and a likely M340i version of the upcoming next-gen BMW 3-series is the injection of 23 more horsepower for its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6.

Extra-cost appearance options include a Night Package with glossy black trim, a Chrome Package that goes the other way, and a couple carbon fiber trim packages, as well as aerodynamic options that amp up the aggressive looks; these can include an active, extendable rear spoiler.

The auto is definitely a handsome creature, no matter which engine option you opt for, and all come with an active aero package that includes an air panel in the front bumper and the retractable rear spoiler.

The Mercedes-AMG GT four-door arrives, complete with clumsy name, as an effective replacement for the CLS 63 and competition for the Porsche Panamera and BMW M8 Gran Coupe.
