Mercedes-AMG’s turbo four could power larger models

Could there eventually be a Mercedes-AMG C45 AMG? Don’t rule it out. Paultan reports the power-rich M139 turbocharged four-cylinder, as seen in the new Mercedes-AMG A45, has been engineered for longitudinal applications. It’s currently used only in cars on the MFA2 front/all-wheel-drive platform, where it’s mounted transversely. This includes the Mercedes-AMG A45, CLA45, and upcoming GLA45 and GLB45 crossovers.

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series spied

The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series has been spied during testing on public roads in Germany. Like earlier Black Series models, the range-topping GT variant is no shrinking violet. At the front there are splitters and spoilers large enough to slice through a leg of ham. The bonnet looks to be a completely new unit with a large central air intake, a massive scallop on one side and external latches.
