Mercedes-AMG GT Joins the Just As Good In Person Club in Paris
10 October 2014 - Autoblog
There are cars debuting in Paris this year that we've heard virtually nothing about until we showed up at Porte de Versailles, and others that we've hotly anticipated seeing for months or more. The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT falls distinctly into that second category.
Approaching this year's motor-soiree, our only real question was, "Will it be as pretty in the tin as it is in pictures."
With our live gallery of images now in, we can answer ourselves pretty definitively: "Yep."
We didn't need to visit the Mercedes-Benz show stand to know that the GT will make 456 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque in standard trim, or 503 hp and 479 when the "S" badge is affixed. And that the sleek yellow and black body you see here will be capable of traveling from 0-100 km per hour in just 3.9 (or 3.7) seconds. Looks fast, is fast.
