2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S

-

Mercedes-AMG is filling out its sports-car lineup with two new versions of the AMG GT coupe. The hard-core AMG GT R certainly is the most exciting bit of news, but we shouldn’t forget the arrival of a new base model that offers a lower entry point for this sexy, V-8–powered two-seater. Starting at $112,125, the “entry-level” AMG GT goes on sale late this summer and is slightly less powerful and less well-equipped than the AMG GT S that’s been on sale in the U.S. for about a year.

Powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 as the GT S, the GT gives up 47 horsepower and 36 lb-ft of torque to its big brother. But performance doesn’t drop off much, with Mercedes estimating a 0-to-60-mph run of 3.9 seconds (0.2 second slower than the S) and a top speed of 189 mph (4 mph behind the S). However, our test of the GT S blew the manufacturer estimate of the water with its 3.0-second run to 60 mph, so we’ll see how the GT does on the track when we get one in to test.

Less means less when it comes to the AMG GT’s standard equipment list, which does without the GT S model’s Nappa leather seats, AMG adaptive exhaust, Burmester audio system, adaptive suspension, and red brake calipers. Some of these features should be optional on the standard GT, however, and things like a backup camera, keyless start, power memory seats, and a limited-slip differential are still included. Thank goodness.
