This is Mercedes's Porsche 911 challenger - the AMG GT. It will compete in a different category and carry a more reasonable sticker price compared to the SLS AMG.

"The new Mercedes-AMG GT shows that we will be positioning AMG more vehemently and aggressively than to date as a dynamic sports car brand," commented Mercedes AMG boss Tobias Moers.

"The technological substance of the Mercedes-AMG GT underscores our high aspirations with regard to driving dynamics, agility and sportiness. Following the global success of the SLS AMG, the new GT is the second sports car developed fully independently by Mercedes-AMG. An initial exclusive look at the design of the interior shows what is in store for our customers: a GT sports car in its purest form," added Moers.

The world premiere of the car will take place later this year, possibly at the Paris Motor Show in October.
