Mercedes-Benz AMG GT
The Mercedes AMG GT. Apart from the fact that it sounds sexy, it is also an absolute first. The second car ever, which was not developed by Mercedes after which the AMG department was allowed to do some tricks, but this time exactly the other way round. AMG got a carte-blanche from Mercedes to develop something themselves.
And that, they did not let them say twice. The now iconic 4.0 litre V8 engine was developed by Aufrecht Melcher und Großaspach and received a hot-V construction for the blowers. Yes, we’re still talking about cars…. Besides the adjustable dampers, the suspension points of engine and gearbox were also made adjustable. From S-class to Hoon-coupe, at your disposal. And then we hear you think: is this still a real AMG with those turbos? Absolutely. For a turbo engine, the throttle response is toxic. In 4 seconds from 0 to I want it and every time the throttle is released, an orgasm of after-burning.
