Mercedes-AMG working on a new flagship supercar

September 26, 2015

The Mercedes-AMG GT that replaced the SLS AMG with the iconic gullwing doors, currently happens to be the flagship vehicle of Mercedes-Benz. It’s not as rare as its predecessor, but it will run out of production in a few years, probably 2-3 years from now. However, Mercedes-AMG is already working on a new flagship supercar that that will take the crown from that model before it runs out of production, suggests a report from Autoblog.

For the time being, the AMG GT will remain the halo car, but that line-up will be expanded, as per the report. The Black Series variant is still at least a year or so away from the market. Earlier reports have indicated that a convertible version may also be launched. Coming back to the aforementioned new supercar, the report says that a Mercedes-AMG product planner in Austria has revealed that a new halo car is in the works and it will be positioned above the AMG GT.

The new supercar will likely be powered by a hybrid powertrain consisting of a new 12-cylinder engine that’s currently under development and an electric motor. A hybrid powertrain will help Daimler keep its average emissions in check, to adhere with the stringent emissions norms in Europe.
