Our spy’s in Belfast have told us that the first of the new Mercedes-AMG GT’s have arrived and are sitting pretty on the showroom floor. After the sensational SLS AMG, Mercedes had their work cut out to build something equally as cool, fast and even more affordable. To many the new Mercedes-AMG GT will be the ultimate motorway muncher. Handcrafted by racers, it’s a thoroughbred sports car with its beautiful styling, supremely balanced handling, and breathtaking performance. The Mercedes-AMG GT is a Gran Turismo that’s equally at home on the race track, the autobahn, or winding back roads of Ireland. 100 km/h comes up in 4.0 seconds which makes it a proper performance car.
With a lightweight construction and front mid-engine design you get perfect weight distribution, making the Mercedes-AMG GT incredibly balanced. As you would expect with most AMG products you can even tailor the driving characteristics to suit your taste, while the aviation-inspired cockpit oozes performance and luxury. And then there’s the sound of the engine, that meaty AMG thump is still there from the muscular 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo, and it produces 462 hp with 600 Nm of torque. This is a staggering bit of kit and one we can’t wait to drive! The on the road price for the Mercedes-AM GT in Northern Ireland is £97,200 and prices for ROI will be released in the not to distant future.
