And it's going to be very, very green. We mean that literally, not figuratively.

The wait for a hotter Mercedes-AMG GT is almost over. The German company will add the souped-up R model in a big debut next week.

Nurburgring testing season is well under way, with Mercedes shipping its AMG GT R development program to the famed German racing circuit.

Jay Leno heads to The Quail during Monterey Car Week to chat with super car bigwigs like Christian von Koenigsegg and Rob Dickenson from Singer. He also takes a drive in a Mercedes-AMG GT S.

For their latest episode, the crew from Xcar takes out the new Mercedes-AMG GT S for a spin to see how it measures up against both predecessor and competition.

Mercedes-AMG released this video accompanied only by the short message that "something fast is coming." Just what that is, we don't know - but we can venture an educated guess.

Has the Porsche 911 Turbo met its match with the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT? Evo attempts to answer that question with the latest installment of "Deadly Rivals."

Mercedes-Benz is taking a whimsical approach for its Super Bowl ad this year. The German luxury brand is updating Aesop's classic fable of the race between the tortoise and the hare with help from the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S.

It's not every day that an automaker goes down a market segment and still comes off as even more ambitious, but that's exactly what Mercedes has done with the new AMG GT. While the SLS was bigger and more expensive, with the new GT, Mercedes has set its sights on one of the most iconic sports cars of all time.

There are cars debuting in Paris this year that we've heard virtually nothing about until we showed up at Porte de Versailles, and others that we've hotly anticipated seeing for months or more. The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT falls distinctly into that second category. Approaching this year's motor-soiree, our only real question was, "Will it be as pretty in the tin as it is in pictures."

Mercedes-Benz is having a banner year with its Formula One team. Through 2014, the constructor has 454 championship points; ahead of its nearest competitor (Red Bull-Renault) by a margin of 182 tally marks. We're sure they can almost taste the champagne.

Mercedes-Benz kept the SLR McLaren around for a solid eight years. The SLS AMG hasn't even been around for five, but already Benz is preparing to roll out its next sports car. We've been anticipating the arrival of the new Mercedes-AMG GT for some time now, but now we've got the exact date of its debut.

Mercedes-Benz can't seem to help itself from leaking out information about the upcoming AMG GT sports coupe, but this is one seriously big drop of news. We already know what its sounds like, but a new video reveals a ton of juicy technical details about its twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 called the M178, including its power and torque figures.

More details about Mercedes-Benz's forthcoming Mercedes-AMG GT continue to drip out. As opposed to launching the new sports coupe all at once, the brand has been slowly divulging information like its interior and some shadowy peeks on video. Even in testing, Mercedes is being cheeky by dressing it in bright green, tiger-striped camouflage that's hard to miss, but shows little. The latest trio of videos gives us a great idea of just how the GT sounds, though.

Daimler is preparing to launch its new performance flagship, the Mercedes-AMG GT. Succeeding and slotting below the current SLS AMG, the new GT is anticipated to take aim squarely at the Porsche 911. The German automaker gave us a pretty clear picture of what the interior will look like last month, and we've seen spy shots of the car testing (see below), but has now returned with a teaser video and micro-site previewing the upcoming new Benz halo.
