Mercedes-AMG has expanded its GT model range, unveiling the new 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 Coupe. Combining elegant design with exhilarating performance, the rear-wheel drive entry delivers a uniquely engaging driving experience for purists.

Under the hood lies a handcrafted 2.0-liter M139 AMG turbocharged engine, engineered to produce 416 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The innovative electric exhaust gas turbocharger, derived from Formula 1 technology, enables instantaneous throttle response across the entire rpm range—taking acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. In addition, 48-volt mild hybrid technology further optimizes efficiency.

“The GT 43 embodies our brand essence of Driving Performance, appealing to customers seeking timeless aesthetics paired with agile handling,” said Mercedes-AMG CEO Michael Schiebe.

Active aerodynamics enhance the GT 43’s sleek silhouette. Hidden louvers in the front air inlet open to maximize cooling when needed, while the retractable rear spoiler optimizes stability or reduces drag in five different positions.

The GT 43 rides on a multi-link AMG sport suspension with lightweight aluminum components, engineered for nimble handling and high cornering speeds. Adaptive AMG RIDE CONTROL damping provides a customizable balance of comfort and control.

Stopping power comes from AMG’s high-performance composite brake system with six-piston front calipers. The advanced design reduces unsprung weight for sharper turn-in and responsiveness.

A wet start-off clutch in the 9-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission improves acceleration. Five distinct AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes cater to any mood, from the full dynamics of Sport+ to smooth cruising in Comfort.

The GT 43’s striking exterior hints at its performance pedigree via AMG-specific design cues. Sleek new front air intakes, unique fender trim, and round twin tailpipes announce the coupe as something special. With an elegant 2+2 cabin brimming with digital displays and premium materials, the interior matches the GT 43’s artful exterior.

Whether carving a canyon road or cruising the coastline, the new Mercedes-AMG GT 43 Coupe promises driving bliss for purists and aesthetes alike. Athletic yet refined, it’s the thinking driver’s expressive new choice.
