A prototype hybrid Mercedes-AMG GT 73e spotted on tests


The journalists published photos of a camouflaged four-door coupe Mercedes-AMG GT 73e. The novelty, with a powerful plug-in hybrid motor, was spotted at the Nürburgring race track.

The Nürburgring Nordschleife is one of the most demanding racetracks on earth and a great place to test new cars from various car manufacturers. Journalists from the foreign edition CarSpyMedia recently noticed that a prototype Mercedes-AMG GT 73e with a slight camouflage is undergoing a series of tests on this race track.

It is not yet clear whether the German automaker is conducting additional verification tests on the Mercedes-AMG GT 73e prototype, or preparing for yet another attempt to set a lap record.

We’ve already seen the car (pictured) officially unveiled alongside the AMG Project One hypercar concept and Mercedes racing car for the new Formula 1 season 2021. In any case, it is clear that the new F1-inspired hybrid system turns the car into a real “rocket” “.

Nothing has been officially confirmed, but the GT 73e is expected to have a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will be powered by the latest electrified system. In total, the power of the hybrid motor will be about 804 horsepower, and the amount of torque will be equal to 1001 Nm. It is worth noting that the current GT 63 S can only produce 630 hp.

While the non-hybrid variant of the four-door coupe does have significantly less horsepower, it is still a powerful car. At the end of last year, he set a new lap record at the Nurburgring in the luxury four-door segment with a time of 7 minutes 23.009 seconds.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Brabus tuners are selling a special Mercedes-Benz GLB for 100 thousand dollars. A German tuning studio specializing in engine and body tuning has shown the B25 SUV based on the Mercedes-Benz GLB for almost $ 100,000.
