Latest teaser shot shows the silhouette of the upcoming AMG GT.

Affalterbach, Germany - A new challenger is set to rock the sports car world later this year, promising to combine the absolute best of everything that AMG has ever done.

To keep the suspense at a knife's edge, Mercedes-Benz has released a new teaser image and video in what looks to be a long string of teasers leading up to the car's eventual reveal.

While the new performer promises to be “an exceptional athlete for the road,” Mercedes-AMG has yet to reveal any juicy information about its powertrain.

Sources abroad, however, are reporting that it'll likely be shoved around by a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 and - depending on the car's weight situation - we really can't imagine them putting it to market with anything less that 400kW.
