A more compact supercar and one focused on directly challenging the Porsche 911's superiority, Mercedes's latest flagship will be officially revealed on September 9 ahead of its first public appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October.

Designed as a replacement for the outgoing SLS, which had insane acceleration, muscle car handling, and attention-seeking look-at-me gullwing doors, the AMG GT promises to be something both more subtle and refined, but no less exciting.

It is going to be powered by an all-new 4-liter bi-turbo 503bhp V8 engine and that should make it go like a rocket. Mercedes has also been quick to point out how long it has taken to develop the new car -- 32 months of engineering and road testing alone in 15 countries with 50 test drivers in sweltering heat and in sub-zero temperatures.

All of which means that it really will be a 911 challenger. What keeps the Porsche in continuous demand is that it is a supercar that is reliable and comfortable enough to drive every day. So expect the MAG GT to deliver the same sort of piece of mind but to also boast a range of creature comforts and cutting-edge technological driving and safety aids to boot.
