These cars are equipped with a two-liter M 139 four, which can also be found on the A 45 hatchback and Lotus Emira coupe. In the case of the GT 43, the engine develops 421 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, allowing it to accelerate to the first hundred in 4.6 seconds. The new product has rear-wheel drive, traction to the wheels goes through an AMG Speedshift MCT 9G automatic transmission.

The second-generation two-door Mercedes-AMG GT, which debuted last year with V8 engines, was added to the initial version of the GT 43 with the engine from the SL roadster. The two-liter M 139 four is equipped with an electric turbocharger. On the coupe, its output is 421 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, while on the SL 43 it is 381 horsepower and 480 Nm. The gearbox is an AMG Speedshift MCT 9G automatic with a wet multi-plate clutch instead of a torque converter. The drive is, of course, rear-wheel drive.

What the GT 43 lacks in power is partly made up for by its lightweight design. For example, the suspensions are made from forged aluminum and the spring mounts are glued, saving 200 grams per wheel. Other features include stabilizers with variable wall thickness and composite brakes with six-piston fixed calipers on the front axle.

For an additional fee, the car will be equipped with electronically controlled AMG Ride Control shock absorbers and a steering mechanism for the rear wheels. The dynamic characteristics are as follows: acceleration to one hundred takes 4.6 seconds (at the level of the Volkswagen Golf R), maximum speed is 280 kilometers per hour. For comparison, the average GT 55 takes 3.9 seconds to accelerate to “hundreds” and has a top speed of 295 kilometers per hour.
