First drive: Mercedes AMG GT S
This is the AMG GT S.
I want it. Bad. It’s got a 4 litre Twin Turbo Charged V8 that makes music second to very few super charged cars I’ve ever heard. It is also elegant. You can, I imagine, stroll along in it under the neon lights in Las Vegas, plough it through the snow on a Swedish winter road or misbehave in it over the hills of the green hell that is Nürburgring.
I haven’t driven it. Neither have I driven a 911. Yet.
But if I had to chose, right here, and right now, I would take this over almost any 911. Except maybe the GTS and GT3/GT3 RS.
Because it’s elegant, and because it does NOT try to be a 911. Also it’s a 2-seater. Front engine, rear wheel drive.
But without further ado, here is the first drive of AMG’s exciting new 911-sized coupe.
Filmed at Laguna Seca Raceway.
