Rafael Nadal has managed to win a brand new Mercedes-AMG GT but that doesn’t mean that he likes the color of his new ride too.
Famous Spanish tennis player has managed to beat Victor Troicki in the final game of the ATP Tour series and has received a Mercedes-AMG GT as a prize. Nadal is a Kia ambassador and he has been for the last 10 years so he doesn’t exactly seem too happy about his new prize.
“It’s not a Kia, but it’s still good. I don’t know if I can change the color, because the color is a little bit too much for me”, said Rafael Nadal.
The tennis player will apparently drive his new ride at home, but without the cameras around, as he also added. The Mercedes-AMG GT is the company’s answer to models such as the Porsche 911 or the Jaguar F-Type, amongst others. The model is being offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a front mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive layout and it is taking power from the 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine, offered in two outputs, with 460 HP (340 kW) & 600 Nm (440 lb-ft) of torque and with 503 HP (375 kW) & 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque. The first one, the AMG GT, can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0s and a top speed of 304 km/h (189 mph) and the second one, the AMG GT S, needs 3.8s and it can reach 310 km/h (190 mph).
