The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is the wild child coupe or convertible of the automaker’s line-up.

This year, Mercedes fleshes out the range even further, which begins with the touring-oriented AMG GT and works its way through GT S, GT C, and track-ready GT R variants. GT and GT C versions are even available as convertibles—just the ticket for high-speed, al fresco ‘bahn burning. We’re big fans of the AMG GT lineup, even if they force considerably daily driver compromises in their quest to deliver the highest level of performance available behind Mercedes’ signature three-pointed star. ll AMG GTs use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, rated from 469 to 585 horsepower that sends power rearward via a 7-speed dual-clutch transaxle. Even the slowest of the pack sprints to 60 mph in under four seconds, but numbers aren’t the main draw here. The AMG GT delivers the kind of pure driving experience we’ve not seen from a Mercedes-Benz in decades.
