The Mercedes-AMG GT is the successor of the SLS AMG. However, the model is smaller, cheaper and less powerful than its predecessor and it has been officially unveiled last year. The sports car is being produced in Sindelfingen, Germany, and it is currently being offered in a single body style, a two-door coupe, bringing a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The carmaker is offering the AMG GT in two versions, both of them bringing the new 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 petrol engine under the hood. In the entry-level variant, the unit is producing 460 HP (340 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm (440 lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0s and to go up to a top speed of 304 km/h (189 mph). The AMG GT S has 503 HP (375 kW) and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque. This can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and it can go up to 310 km/h (190 mph).
