We recommend

The Mercedes AMG GT is a fully equipped sports car that has the capacity to Performa on both roads and tracks. The AMG GT also gets optional features to match the performance of the GT S so the base model is the best choice. But in case you can put extra cash go for the GTS with the Aerodynamic packages, carbon fiber interior trim and matte black paint.

Engine

9.6/10
"AMG models have been criticized for years for their punishing ride on the average potholed American road, so you'd think a dedicated sports car like the GT would be even worse. Surprise! It's quite livable around town, yet when you pick up the pace, the GT grips tarmac unlike any vehicle ever to wear an AMG badge. - Kelley Blue Book"

Engine and transmission

The AMG GT drives its power from a 4.0L V8 engine that produces 456 hp and 443 lb.-ft. of torque. It has a 7-speed automatic transmission and a rear wheel drivetrain. Under the price of $111,200 there are several cars that have more power and better acceleration but it not the power it the way the power output is handled and that's what makes GT coupe so special.

The AMG Gt is not the best in the class, as the Jaguar F-type features a massive 5.0L 550hp V8 engine with 502 lb-ft of torque output makes it the best in the class and the 911 Carrera stays the last when it comes to number of horses but of course that alone does not decides the performance and capabilities of a car.

Handling and Steering

Well the AMG GT is performance coupe specially engineered to offer track level performance but it is also capable of daily driving. The AMG series is pretty famous for their performance but they have some flaws, which is totally unknown to the GT coupe. The AMG dynamic select features lets you choose between Comfort, sport, sport+ and Individual with Race mode for GT S only.

As you switch between the modes the steering response, transmission, suspension and power output changes as the car goes more aggressive and the exhaust gets louder. The AMG GT is so well engineered so that you can hit almost 90% of the throttle while cornering without a body roll. It retractable spoiler increases traction and keeps vehicle stable while cornering or accelerating hard.

Braking

The AMG GT is 3560 lbs. supercar that can do 0-60 mph in 3.5 sec and so it need some intense braking Prowers. The AMG GT is equipped with AMG high-performance composite braking system which includes 14.2 inch ventilated front and rear disc brakes made of carbon-fiber reinforced with ceramic for better deceleration and are 40% lighter then brakes of composite materials.

The AMG GT takes only 96 ft. to get from 60-0 mph. and that equals to a race track braking performance. The AMG GT is also equipped with features like 4-wheels anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control, traction control, brake drying and emergency braking preparation/assists for more intelligent and effective braking.

Fuel Economy

The AMG GT offers an average mileage of 16/22 mpg in city/highway with an combined mileage of 18 mpg. It is not something impressive but for a car that features V8 it is satisfactory, well the mileage also depends on the way and the mode you are driving. Compared to the Mercedes, the Jaguar F-type has almost fuel efficiency while the 911 has an impressive fuel economy.

Trunk volume

The Mercedes AMG GT features 12.3 cubic feet of cargo volume which is plenty for a sport coupe, well it is an impressive volume but considering its long and less wide design its versatility decreases a lot, as you cannot store bigger or wider objects, but you can put two golf bags, that works. The boot space is also accessible from the cabin due to a rear side cutout for better rear visibility.

Competition

Jaguar F-type Coupe vs Mercedes AMG GT Coupe

The jaguar F-type Coupe is a class leading performance coupe. It features a massive 550hp V8 engine with 8-speed automatic. When it comes to performance the Jaguar is on the same level as the Mercedes and has the same acceleration times. The Jaguar is heavy but smaller in dimension and has almost the same fuel efficiency.

On head-on competition, the Jaguar is on the same level as the Mercedes but still is $5800 cheaper than the Mercedes, but the  $6000 gap for a 6 digits car does not count actually.

Porsche 911 Carrera vs Mercedes AMG GT Coupe

The Porsche 911 is the smallest in the whole competition. Not only in comparison of size, or space or body height but it also features a smaller 420hp engine with 7-speed automatic and still cost about the same as the Mercedes. The Porsche is indeed the most fuel economical car in the whole class and it also have more overall storage than both cars but high cost of ownership, hence Mercedes wins.

Final Verdict

The Mercedes AMG-GT is a revolution in the AMG lineup and has all the rights to be called a driver's car. This 6-digit coupe is not only just powerful, or a good looking car, it has the potential to bring out every single horses it owns. The AMG GT is designed in a way to handle daily commute easily while it rule the track.

The GT is not a family car and trust me they put the passenger's seat due to the regulation. Other than its performance it is comfortable, well equipped and one of the safest car around. Coming up to the competition the Gt leaves the Porsche in dust as for the jaguar, it might be powerful or less costly, it is on the same level as the Mercedes when it comes to performance.
