The Mercedes-AMG high-performance stable has produced some extraordinary vehicles in recent years: not least the sensational SLS AMG. But even by their own remarkable standards, the new Mercedes-AMG GT is something very, very special.

Handcrafted by racers, it’s a thoroughbred sports car, a celebration of the sheer joy of driving. With its sublime styling, supremely balanced handling, and breathtaking performance, the Mercedes-AMG GT is a Gran Turismo in the grand tradition. Equally at home on the race track, the autobahn, or winding mountain passes, it combines blistering acceleration – 0-62 mph in as little as 3.8 seconds – with exemplary long journey comfort.

Lightweight construction and front mid-engine design ensures optimum weight distribution, making the Mercedes-AMG GT incredibly fleet-footed yet perfectly poised. You can even tailor driving characteristics to suit your taste, while the aviation-inspired cockpit exemplifies high-performance luxury. And then there’s the sound of the engine at full roar. That just has to be heard to be believed.
