2016 Mercedes-AMG GT
“Is it always Angry?” Perhaps these are the few words that will first come to your mind when you take a look at the new Mercedes AMG GT. The AMG GT is the successor of the iconic SLS AMG GT which was launched back in the year 2010, and this was also the very first car that was entirely developed and built by the AMG division which normally tweaks the stock Mercedes products and adds zing to them so they can become more meaner machines.
Now imagine a car which has been entirely built by the AMG division whose job is to make the stock products much more interesting.
I know what evil thoughts are rounding up in your mind right now and yes! The SLS AMG GT used to look that wicked all that credit goes to its long front bonnet and that short rear overhung and that angry exhaust note. Oh! And did I forget to mention those gullwing doors which actually make you feel that the car used to have wings. Yes! It is an icon, but with the passing of time the SLS AMG GT was ageing and both Mercedes and AMG needed a successor immediately which could replace that icon, thus the AMG division started planning for its successor long time ago secretly and it had to be equally worthy to replace one of the most iconic Grand Tourer of all time.
We have recently seen some other legendary cars retiring and their successor replacing them; take for example the Lamborghini Gallardo which was replaced by its successor Huracan. So Mercedes too needed a successful successor for its SLS AMG and at an event in Germany Mercedes unveiled the new AMG GT which comes with its front mid-engine concept and lightweight aluminium construction which actually is the formula needed for highly dynamic driving experience.
It is powered by a 4.0 Liter V8 bitturbo engine available in two states of tune one producing about 464 Hp of peak power while the other producing 510 Hp. We will definitely talk about its insane torque figures and all other details in this review.
