We still have a few years of the gorgeous BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the four-door 6 Series variant that may very well be the best looking modern BMW. Before it leaves us, it will gain another competitor — the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4.

It’s not surprising that Mercedes-AMG wantsΒ to develop such a car, as these sorts of four-door coupes are growing increasingly popular. While Mercedes-Benz already has the CLS-Class, this car will be far more performance oriented. Although it will share its name with the AMG GT, it will actually be based on Mercedes’ new E-Class platform, so it will still be sedan-based. The next Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class will also be larger and more luxury oriented than this car, which will be performance oriented.

The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is on its last legs but, hot damn, it’s still good looking. The other cars in this class thatΒ compete areΒ the Audi S7 and Porsche Panamera Turbo, which are also very good looking and very good cars. So the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 (as it’s reported to be called) will have some stiff competition.

Expect the same 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 from the Mercedes-AMG GT and the same seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. This powertrain is a beast in the AMG GT so it should be fun and exciting in a four-door car.

        kaisuke quick question in your country is diesel more popular than petrol? here in the UK its full of diesels my dad hates diesels and hes looking for a new car. petrol only I suggested 540i xdrive its expensive but it has all the tech luxury performance a car needs. he also wants a prestige brand so the bmw 5er ticks all the boxes. we went to merc also just to see E class. and even the dealer was like the e220d are basically taxis so he didnt want that even the C class looked better than the E class imo. E coupe was okay in person. in the UK e class have no petrol models only petrol version is the full amg. I told him to wait for the new 6 Gran turismo he loves the GT type back for golf clubs etc but I have a feeling just because it has the 6er badge on it BMW will increase the price of the GT

          Yeah during the last 15-20 years the French government has pushed Diesel like it was the new messiah or something, so people here think diesel is better. That’s slowly changing though and the (stupid) government is backing up now giving 10 000€ to everyone changing from a diesel to a non-diesel car (because they know the emissions, especially the NOx) are horrible for our health), but still diesel cars make more sales.

          To be honest i don’t really mind because diesels have lots of torque in the bottom of the rev range, so for a daily it’s ideal. But if i was to buy a daily with the budget your father has, right now, i’d go for an hybrid. They have the torque of the diesels but they’re cleaner (possibly less expensive to own as well since they use less fuel), only problem they’re a bit heavy.

          The 530e seems to be a nice option since it has some weight reduction to make up for the batteries’ weight.

          • Icebreakerr says:

            Oh I see I think UK is doing the same stupid goverment is changing it lol i’ll suggest the 530e to him seems like the perfect option :D

          • Kaisuke971 says:

            You know what i looked it up and the 530e doesn’t make nearly as much torque as i thought, and it’s not quite close to the 530d in terms of straight line perf so the 540i might be a better option (plus it handles better as it’s lighter).

          • Icebreakerr says:

            o lol he like the idea of the 540i he wants it in xdrive i said to him its a pretty fast car he was just like ye.. but then I was like I dont think you realise how fast it is lol then he got excited xD

  2. Icebreakerr says:

    Mercedes plan with the AMG GT4 is to make a Direct rival to the Panamera. the CLS will be less performance and less sporty and will try be more luxury and position itself between the E and S. and i doubt there will be a CLS63 version cant see it on the line up.cause the AMG GT4 will be there which uses the E class chasis anyway so it wouldnt make sense to make a cls63..
