About Video - 2025 Mercedes AMG GT 43 Coupe | Proper Driver’s Sports Coupe! | THE AFRICAN CAR GUY 2025 Mercedes AMG GT 43 Coupe | Proper Driver’s Sports Coupe! | THE AFRICAN CAR GUY Mercedes-AMG is expanding the portfolio of the new AMG GT Coupé with the AMG GT 43. The combination of a relatively lightweight four-cylinder engine on the front axle and pure rear-wheel drive makes the new model an agile cornering artist with extremely dynamic handling and a lot of driving fun. The AMG 2.0-litre turbo engine delivers 310 kW (421 hp) and generates a maximum torque of 500 Nm. What is special is the electric exhaust gas turbocharger, a technology from Formula 1™. This form of charging guarantees particularly spontaneous responses across the entire speed range. The new AMG GT 43 offers an even more dynamic driving experience and at the same time increased efficiency. The turbocharger is operated via the 48-volt on-board electrical system, which also feeds the belt-driven starter generator. This briefly delivers an additional boost of 10 kW (14 hp). The second generation also functions as a mild hybrid in the 48-volt on-board electrical system, which, in addition to the temporary boost in performance, also enables functions such as coasting and recuperation for even greater efficiency. The 48-volt technology also increases comfort, as the transitions between the start-stop and coasting functions are almost imperceptible. "Our AMG GT family is at the top of our portfolio and embodies the spirit of our brand: Driving Performance. We are therefore delighted that this family is now growing to include the GT 43. It is clearly recognisable as a GT but is clearly different from the other models. It appeals to customers who love design and focus on elegance but are unwilling to compromise on driving pleasure and driving dynamics. The rear-wheel drive concept makes the GT 43 a very agile vehicle that will put a smile on your face on winding roads." Michael Schiebe, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, and Head of Business Units Mercedes-Benz G-Class & Mercedes-Maybach The performance is commensurate with its status: the AMG GT 43 accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. The top speed is 280 km/h. Electric exhaust gas turbocharger improves engine response The AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine in the AMG GT 43 achieves its maximum output of 310 kW (421 hp) at 6,750 rpm. The maximum torque of 500 Nm is available between 3,250 rpm and 5,000 rpm. Depending on the situation, the system also guarantees a short-term additional boost of 10 kW (14 hp) from the belt-driven starter generator (RSG). technology that is also used by the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team. An approximately four-centimetre narrow electric motor is integrated directly on the shaft of the turbocharger, between the turbine wheel on the exhaust side and the compressor wheel on the fresh air side. Electronically controlled, this directly drives the shaft of the turbocharger and thus accelerates the compressor wheel before the exhaust gas flow takes over the conventional drive. This significantly improves the response behaviour right from idle speed and across the entire speed range. The combustion engine reacts even more spontaneously to accelerator pedal commands, and the overall driving experience is more dynamic. In addition, the electrification of the turbocharger enables higher torque at low speeds. This also increases agility and optimises the ability to accelerate from a standstill. Even when the driver releases the accelerator or brakes, the technology of the e-turbocharger maintains the boost pressure at all times. This ensures continuous, direct response. AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with wet starting clutch and rear wheel drive In the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission (MCT = Multi-Clutch Transmission), a wet starting clutch replaces the torque converter. It reduces weight and, thanks to its lower mass inertia, optimises the response to accelerator pedal commands, especially when sprinting and when changing loads. The elaborately co-ordinated software ensures short switching times and quick multiple downshifts. In addition, the double-declutching function in the "Sport" and "Sport+" driving programmes delivers a particularly emotional shifting experience. The RACE START function is also applied, which guarantees optimal acceleration from a standstill. Active aerodynamics to increase dynamics and efficiency The active air control system AIRPANEL is a technical highlight for improving aerodynamics. The horizontal slats behind the upper air inlet can be opened and closed under electronic control. This means that the air flow is directed as needed and thus improves aero performance. Normally the slats are closed - even at top speed. This position reduces air resistance. Only when certain temperatures have been reached on predefined components and the cooling air requirement is particularly high do the fins open and allow maximum cooling air to flow to the heat exchangers. #automobile #2025cars Keywords: THE AFRICAN CAR GUY,Proper Driver’s Sports Coupe,2025 Mercedes AMG GT 43 Coupe,Mercedes AMG GT 43 Coupe,mercedes amg gt,lamborghini 2024,The African Car Guy,lamborghini revuelto 2023,421HP 6.750RPM,the african car guy,world famous Mercedes,Gorgias Mercedes,f1rst motors,top speed,CAR GUY,Car,racing car,Mercedes-AMG,AMG GT 43 review,Mercedes GT 43 performance,AMG GT 43 exhaust sound,AMG GT 43 exterior design,amg gt 43 coupe,car wizard
