Model Highlights

The AMG GT S is a modern supercar and nowhere is this modernity more evident than in its engine design. Powering the car is a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 engine producing 503 hp. AMG have generally shied away from turbocharging, due to the associated lag in throttle response. However for the AMG GT S, the turbos have actually been housed between the two cylinder banks, making for a much shorter trip from the turbos to the engine. As a result, turbo lag is nearly eliminated and throttle response is excellent. While mileage has never been the goal of the AMG GT, the use of turbochargers produces significantly better mileage than an equivalently powerful non-turbo engine.

Harnessing all that turbocharged grunt, is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which can function as an automatic or be shifted manually via paddles mounted behind the steering wheel. Power is sent to the rear wheels.

Though looking at the engine alone could convince one otherwise, the AMG GT S is much more than just a muscle car. It rides on double wishbone suspension all around and has electronically adjustable shock absorbers, allowing drivers to choose one of four different settings to adjust the ride quality and handling prowess of the car. With the stiffer suspension settings engaged, the AMG GT S becomes one of the best handling cars on the road, capable of out-cornering all but the most expensive exotics.

The AMG GT S is still a Mercedes-Benz however, and that means that it's a spectacular place to spend time in on a long journey; packed full of new technology and comfortable for long periods of time. The AMG GT S is currently only sold in one comprehensive trim level that includes a long list of goodies. An incomplete list of convenience features includes an 8.4-inch integrated touchscreen display for apps, a rearview camera and the navigation system, Napa leather seating surfaces available in a huge number of colors and designs, power adjustable and heated front seats with a memory system, a surround sound stereo with satellite radio and a dual-zone automatic climate control system.

There are still options however, for those who want the best of the best. These include an upgraded Burmester stereo, a variety of 19" and 20" wheel designs, a blind spot warning system, dynamic engine mounts to help with handling and carbon-ceramic brake discs.


Model News

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is a brand new car for 2016 and the spiritual successor to the SLS AMG. While the SLS AMG was an incredibly rare and expensive supercar, the AMG GT is ever so slightly more down to earth. The AMG GT still boasts incredible performance and looks to die for, but it is now just a little bit more reasonably priced and livable for the everyday driver.


Value Writeup

With a current base price of around $130,000, the AMG GT S can hardly be accused of being cheap. However, its price is actually quite competitive with other supercars from Porsche and Audi, with the 911 Turbo and the R8 V10 both costing significantly more than the AMG GT S. Next year, Mercedes-Benz plans on introducing the base AMG GT, which should be cheaper than the S version on sale today.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2016 AMG GT S vehicles manufactured June 1, 2015 to July 24, 2015. In affected vehicles, the adhesive bond between the carbon-fiber driveshaft and the rear flange may fail, and as a result, there may be a loss of torque to the rear wheels.

Consequence
If the adhesive bond fails and results in a loss of torque to the rear wheels, the vehicle operator may be unable to move the vehicle, or may experience deceleration if the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the carbon-fiber driveshaft, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on July 29, 2016. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA's number for this recall is 2016050008.
