Mercedes-AMG GT73e: what is it?
The 'GT73e' will be the first in a series of new plug-in hybrid Mercedes-AMG models. It will be driven by an uprated version of the GT63’s 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, mated to an electric motor that is said to provide a “significant” performance boost. AMG sources previously told our sister magazine, Autocar UK, that the GT73e’s electric motor alone will offer up to 201hp, for a total output figure of over 800hp.
The engine, which produces 639hp in the GT63 S, is said to offer “previously unattained levels of power and torque” for a road-going four-door AMG in its electrified form. The model will serve as a rival to the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. It will also be a spiritual successor to AMG’s debut model, the 300CE Hammer, which helped build the firm's reputation as a builder of uprated large saloons with supercar pace.
The model’s P3 PHEV system will also be used by top-rung versions of the latest Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the upcoming Mercedes-AMG SL grand tourer. It could also be used in the petrol-electric successor to the Mercedes-AMG C63 4Matic, where it will be used in combination with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine, rather than a large-capacity V8.
