The second-generation 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Coupé is back.

It’s essentially a hardtop take on the new SL.

The second-generation GT Coupé is less of a hardcore sports car than the original and far more of a GT car.

The bespoke platform, rear-mounted dual-clutch transaxle, dry-sump engine, and two-seat cabin are a thing of the past.

Now, the GT is a 2+2 with standard all-wheel drive.

And, as the video above by @LUX Lifestyle reveals, it’s simply stunning.

The 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Coupé is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8.

That’s paired with a nine-speed multi-clutch automatic.

Bucking the sometimes impractical supercar trend the Coupé is larger and offers more comfort than other similar sports cars.

While the mission of the GT has changed a bit, its primary rival is still the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS and Turbo.

The 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT also has an AMG GT 55 Coupé.

The AMG GT 55 produces 469 horsepower from the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8.

Increasingly rare in today’s car market, the powerplant has no electrification.

However, many believe that this will be the last sports car from Mercedes-Benz to be exclusively powered by fossil fuel.

The new AMG GT is also only available in all-wheel drive.

What’s more, its back seat is not going to be much use for anyone taller than four-feet.

Mercedes claims that next-generation GTs will drop into US dealers this spring with humanoid robots pushing them off the assembly line.

The question is: will buyers be willing to pay a supercar price for a more practical AMG GT Coupé? 

Reaction to the video was strong with a massive 4 million views.

“Wow, this car is sleek! I’d love to go for a spin in it,” said one.

“It gives me chills,” said a second.

“Would you rather buy this or a Tesla?” said a third, perhaps wondering about the lack of electrification.

While we’ve already had a look at the 2026 Mercedes-AMG EV driving on a frozen lake – you’ll have to wait a little longer for that.
