AMG’s own sports car, in no way just a go-faster version of a regular Benz. The body, suspension and cabin are all bespoke. Unlike the more expensive and lower-selling SLS, the GT is aimed right at the heart of the serious sports car market. Which means it has no business adopting the SLS’s oddball and spiky character. Everything has to be right: look at its rivals, particularly the ever-present Porsche 911. The GT’s aluminium body carries a twin turbo V8 upfront, and a seven-speed twin-clutch transmission out back, for excellent weight balance.
