This is the next AMG-only sports car from the Affalterbach-based performance arm of Mercedes-Benz and it’s a pretty darned good-looking thing. It’s also a painstakingly created thing. This video details some of the effort that went into the development process.

Why should you be concerned with the development process and rigorous nature? Because the new Mercedes-AMG GT will be revealed to the world in just a couple of weeks, on September 9, 2014.

It’s also important because the Mercedes-AMG GT might be one of the Porsche 911’s strongest new rivals when it finally does hit the streets, and for the enthusiast, that may mean it’s a new benchmark for an all-around sports car.

Once you’ve watched the video, go ahead and dig into the Mercedes-AMG GT here.
