It’s easy to be confused by the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe. The high-performance vehicle is part hot rod, part sports sedan, and part supercar. It’s also a hatchback. Confused yet? Wait, there’s more. Despite its five-door configuration, Mercedes calls it a four-door coupe. See what we mean?
Because it shares its name with the Mercedes-AMG GT, it’s also easy to assume that this is a five-door version of the Mercedes high-performance two-door supercar. But it’s actually based on the brand’s popular E-Class, sharing its 116.2-inch wheelbase with E-Class wagon, while its chassis, engines and other major components come from the E 63 S sedan. AMG is, of course, Mercedes’ in-house hot-rod shop, and it’s been adding sport-tuned suspensions, bigger brakes, and more horsepower to the brand’s mainstream models since the 1970s, creating some of the fastest cars and SUVs on the road. With 630 horsepower, the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door Coupe is its most powerful sedan ever — setting aside its "coupe" name and liftback body style. It competes with the Porsche Panamera Turbo S, BMW M8 Gran Coupe, and Audi RS7.
