Merecdes-AMG GT4 undergoes final testing, sports new fixed rear wing

At the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, Mercedes-AMG will be debuting the all-new AMG GT4, essentially a four-door coupe version of the AMG GT. With the show just a month away, it's no surprise that the guys over at Mercedes-AMG are busy completing tests on the upcoming high-performance four-door coupe.

In this latest batch of spy photos, our spies managed to capture the upcoming AMG GT4 completing cold weather tests while wearing minimal camo. Unlike previous photos, the prototype seen here seems to lack any false panels, giving us an early preview of what the production model will look like. Furthermore, it also sports a new hotter camouflage with flame prints rather than the usual spiral design.

Up front, we see that the test mule already flaunts the signature AMG Panamericana grill albeit with the Mercedes-Benz star hidden. The bumper design is similar to that of the AMG GT, having three large air vents, giving it an aggressive look.

Moving to the rear, there are more similarities with the AMG GT from the taillights to the side vents on the bumper. Curiously, this prototype sports a fixed rear wing, which is not found on the other AMG GT4 prototype beside it. Previous spy photos showed the AMG GT4 sporting an active rear spoiler instead of a fixed unit. A closer look at wing shows that it is similarly designed to that on the AMG GT R. Could this mean that a hotter and faster AMG GT4 is also planned?

No official word yet, but power is said to come from a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 which could produce around 600 PS. Mercedes could also introduce their EQ Power+ Technology to the AMG GT4, which was found in the concept, later on to further boost power output.

Expect to see the Mercedes-AMG GT4 in the metal together with full details once the car debuts at Geneva next month.
