It’s not clear yet if the new coupe will wear the Mercedes symbol, the AMG badge or both but we can agree that it will have a tough market when it’s ready for sale. Hopefully the financial crisis has calmed down until 2010 when the Gullwing will be introduced to the world.
Expect a twin-turbo V-8 with roughly 600 horsepower to find its place in the aluminum spaceframe, connected to a 7-speed gearbox. The body will be made of carbon fiber and aluminum to keep weight down.
