Mercedes-AMG GT S: first ride review

As we leave behind the city traffic and loping motorway for twistier roads, the GT begins to reveal its other, angrier side. Cycling through the driver modes via a dial on the centre tunnel sharpens the response of the front-mounted V8, and stiffens the suspension to create what feels like a proper little racer.

Ah, this I did not know...

Unfortunately, we’re not yet able to drive the low-slung, wieldy GT – but we have snuck a shotgun ride with the maker itself. Our driver for our first AMG GT experience is Bernd Schneider – five-time winner of the DTM touring car championship and victorious at the Spa 24 Hours, Nürburgring 24 Hours and Bathhurst 12 Hours in the SLS AMG GT. He knows a thing or two about getting the best from a truly athletic AMG – which is why he was actively involved in the development process of the new GT

^ its involvement like that of people from the outside that I think helps to develop a great vehicle, good to see that they got someone who had serious seat time in the SLS have some impact on the GT.

Actually it looks FANTASTIC in black! I've never been one for black cars but the GT just offers a certain degree of sinister in that paint...

Over time I have come to the conclusion that just about any MB in black looks killer IMO.

Really need to see the AMG GT in person for myself one day.

I hadn't seen it from that angle before. It looks great. The fastback looks amazing.
