Mercedes-AMG has kicked off sales of the new GT 4-door in Europe, quietly revealing a new variant in the process – the AMG GT 43 4-door 4Matic+.

Sitting below the 53 and 63 models in the line-up, the GT 43 4-door draws from a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six with 270kW of power and 500Nm of torque, the latter on tap from 1800 to 4500rpm.

The petrol engine is complemented by an ‘EQ Boost’ starter-alternator that assists with 16kW and 250Nm for short periods. It’s actually the same powertrain as the new-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS450.

Mercedes-AMG claims the ‘entry-level’ performance four-door coupe can sprint from 0-100 in 4.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 270km/h.

Fuel consumption is rated at 9.1-9.4L/100km on the combined cycle, with the variation likely accounting for the wheel and tyre package specified by the buyer.

Pricing for the AMG GT 43 4-door starts at €95,259 ($153,586), nearly €14,000 ($22,572) less than the more powerful AMG GT 53 4-door.
