This "43" model will slot in below the GT 53 and pack a similar 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine, albeit with less power. You'll be dealing with 367 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque here - 68 hp and 15 lb-ft less than the GT 53, respectively. As of now, there's no word on whether this less-powerful variant will make it stateside.
It might have fewer ponies, but Mercedes still loaded it with the same cool tech as the more expensive GT 53. The 48-volt electric system is standard and it still uses Mercedes' EQ Boost tech that helps deliver an extra 22 hp for brief periods. Its electric-compressor-enhanced turbocharger promises to eliminate some of that pesky turbo lag as well. Transmission-wise it's using the same AMG nine-speed automatic with torque converter, and it sends that power to a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. The AMG GT 43 will hit 60 in a hair under 5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 168 mph.
Pricing for the AMG GT 43 in Europe equates to SGD$153k(Yes you can't even get a GTI here). The GT 53's equivalent price is a good SGD$22k more. Availability is still unknown, but you'll know first from us if it does make it here.
