Mercedes-Benz has been painstakingly slow in revealing its forthcoming AMG GT model. We've seen bits and pieces of it for over a year now, with the latest being this video complete with engine sound.
Sources close to Mercedes-Benz claim that the AMG GT will be revealed online on 9th September 2014. It will then make its official motor show debut at the Paris Motor Show.
