2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT continues testing on the Nürburgring

Here we have the latest spy shots of the Mercedes AMG GT (c190) prototype testing on the Nürburgring, wearing the same camouflage as the prototypes we saw winter testing in Northern Sweden.

We saw the AMG GT on the ‘Ring last year also, but then it was wearing a heavy black camouflage.

Details are limited, but according to Mercedes-Benz design chief Gorden Wagener, the new model is “the most beautiful car” ever made by the company and is inspired by the 1952 Panamericana-winning 300 SL.

Reportedly power comes from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, and as we have seen prototypes with different exhaust tips, it is likely the engine is offered with at least two different power outputs, or there could be two different engines.

Power will be sent exclusively to rear wheels via seven-speed SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch gearbox. No manual!

Just as with the SLS AMG, an open top Spider and a hot Black Series model will follow later.

Public debut is reportedly already on July 20 at the German F1 GP.
