Days after its reveal at the Geneva Motor Show, spy shooters captured the Mercedes-AMG GT concept testing around Stuttgart, Germany. Yep, Benz wasn't bluffing. This concept is happening.

The slinky, coupe-styled four-door is covered in black-and-white camouflage in these images. The piercing headlights are evident, framing a prominent grille and a strafed hood. We also see large blacked-out wheels, and the prototype's fastback silhouette echoes the concept strongly.

The Geneva show car had a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that teamed with an electric motor to crank out an eye-watering 805 horsepower capable of hitting 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds. It's badged EQ Power+, which signals Mercedes' performance hybrid systems of the future. Not surprisingly, the concept car's huge chrome wheels and flashy Panamerica grille are not on this prototype.

Mercedes surprised the industry with this four-door model to complement its AMG GT coupe and convertible, and the company confirmed it plans to build something along the lines of the Geneva concept in the near future. "With the Mercedes-AMG GT concept, we are giving a preview of our third completely independently developed sports car and are extending the attractive AMG GT family to include a four-door variant," Tobias Moers, Mercedes-AMG chairman, said in a statement announcing the car.

The sedan continues the growth of AMG's portfolio. Next up, its hypercar will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
