Gorden Wagener, Chief Designer of the German car automaker says that the future Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, the replacement of the SLS AMG, will be the most beautiful car bearing the logo of the Stuttgart based car company.

Unlike the current SLS AMG, the future Mercedes-Benz AMG GT will be smaller, in order to fight in a segment dominated by the Porsche 911. Gorden Wagener, Mercedes-Benz Chief Designer says that the lucky ones who have seen the future AMG GT compared it with the Jaguar E-Type in terms of beauty.
You might think it is hard to overcome the SLS, but I think we managed that with AMG GT. Gorden Wagener, Mercedes-Benz Chief Designer
Wagener believes that Mercedes-Benz AMG GT has more classical elements than Jaguar E-Type and that they will never become obsolete. Sources within the German brand announced that the new model will be very short and has no profile line.
The engine that animates the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT will be a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 expected to deliver about 500 horsepower.
The official presentation of the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is scheduled for the Formula 1 German Grand Prix, held in July. Most likely, the SLS AMG successor will have design elements recalling the famous 300 SL coupe.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar will be discontinued from range starting March 2014.
