Mercedes AMG GT (Preview)

mercedes-amg_gt_44

Mercedes’ sporty wing AMG is readying its most exciting sports car in ages – the AMG GT. It’s lighter than the slightly muscle car-like SLS, and it’s also cheaper, finally taking the fight to the Porsche 911. Its long bonnet hides a new twin-turbo V8 engine that actually sits in the middle of the car, behind the front axle – essentially making it mid-engined.

They’ve done such a good job that it’s actually now heavier in the back, with a weight distribution of 47/53.

Nobody in the motoring press has driven it yet, but reviews are expected to hit the web next month. Until then, do check out this WhatCar? static preview to get all of the juicy details.
