Mercedes has decided to unveil its third self-driving sports car at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, in the form of this ravishing Mercedes-AMG GT Concept.

With a total system output of up to 600 kW or over 800 horsepower, this Mercedes will do 0 to 100 km/h in less than three seconds. The four-door sports car can easily enter supercar territory, although it’s perfectly capable of handling everyday use. The show stopping concept also offers us a sneak preview of the exterior design that will probably be featured on the upcoming series production model. The ‘GT’ concept will be instantly recognizable, thanks to its bold exterior and overall sporty attitude. The ‘Panamericana’ grille. with vertical ribs and red touches, the slim main headlamps and side air gills are definitive for AMG GT cars, and please note the powerful shade of red, which seems to be inspired from liquid metal. The ‘Nano Active Fiber’ technology is a first for daytime running lights, allowing the concept before you to display an autonomous light signature, while at the back, things remain equally recognizable thanks to the extremely slim horizontal tail lamps and the shape of the tailgate. You might have noticed there are no exterior mirrors on this concept, and that’s because their function has been replaced by aerodynamic miniature cameras, while the a-wing of the front spoilers, the rear diffuser, and the side sill panels have been designed from in high-quality carbon fiber. There is no performance data to talk about yet, although we know that the operating strategy of this concept vehicle came from the hybrid powerpack of the Mercedes Petronas AMG formula 1 racing car, which means the battery pack could be charged even when the vehicle is being driven.
