Mercedes-Benz unveiled the AMG GT S coupe in Stuttgart, Germany, on Tuesday, after months of speculations and spy photos. This is the second car developed completely in-house at AMG in Affalterbach, following the SLS AMG, and it’s the company’s latest super-car.
The rumormill churns out a base price starting at $120,000.
BMW i8 uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system. The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometres (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).
It is built primarily of carbon fibre and the i8 represents the future of “green sport-cars”.
