More proof hybrids don't necessarily have to be boring.
When Mercedes-AMG previewed what was to become the confusingly named GT 4-Door Coupe, the concept exhibited in March 2017 at the Geneva Motor Show rocked a hybrid powertrain with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and an electric motor. The conventional engine was installed in it’s usual place at the front and worked together with the e-motor at the back to enable an immense combined output of 805 horsepower (600 kilowatts).

The folks from Affalterbach have since confirmed plans to put the hybrid powertrain into a production model, and now it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer. The GT 4-Door Coupe in the 63 S guise is already the most powerful Mercedes production model outside of the Project One, but the rumored GT73 will take things to a whole new level by packing around 800 hp. According to Autocar, it’s due for a release as early as next year.
