Mercedes GT S AMG information
Here’s something that may surprise you: In general, building a low-volume supercar isn’t as big of a challenge for a major automaker as you might think. However, turning a low-volume sports car into a more massive machine, like the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe, is a bit more difficult.
When Mercedes-AMG took on the challenge of turning its wild – and very expensive – SLS supercar into a practical and, more importantly, affordable rival to the Porsche 911 and Audi R8, the business case got a little more serious.
The result was the GT Coupe. Its concept is similar to that of the SLS: a large, front-engine, rear-wheel drive coupé muscle car with a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
However, the GT’s need to include practicalities like a decent-sized trunk without expensive frills like the SLS’s impressive gullwing doors means its designers and engineers have had their wings clipped.
And how is it? Well, the consensus is that it’s still one of the best supercars you can rent.
