Mercedes-AMG GT seems like a smaller, more powerful, wing-clipped version of the outgoing SLS AMG. The engine still sits in a front-mid-mounted position, and power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. But Mercedes-Benz is making things a bit more interesting by offering two model variants for 2016.
The standard AMG GT will produce 456 hp and 443 ft lbs of torque, while an upgraded AMG GT S version will put out 503 hp and 479 ft lbs of torque. Both will use the same 4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine and will hit top speeds near or above 190 mph. The GT S, however, will accelerate more quickly—reaching 60 mph from a standstill in 3.7 seconds, which pits it right up against the likes of the Porsche 911 and Jaguar F-Type V8S.
