Mercedes‑AMG GT… we can hear it coming

Often it’s the case that you hear a supercar coming before you can see it, but Mercedes has taken it to a new level with the AMG GT – pre-launch audio clips have been released before images of the exterior (unless you include the abstract teaser video).

Three sounds clips have been released: idle, gentle throttle blipping and more sustained revving. The engine itself is still secret, but the rumour mill makes strong suggestions towards a 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 producing 475bhp.

The release is rather like one of our Firing On… videos, but without the visual element. We’ll have to wait until the Paris motor show in October to see the AMG GT. In the meantime, listen up!
