New AMG GT review: Better than a 911?!

Mat's got his hands on the all-new GT!

We've got our hands on the GT 63 edition, and he's about to see if it can compete with class leaders like the Porsche 911 Turbo S and Aston Martin Vantage!

So to begin with, let's take a look at the design. Despite the fact that it's a brand new GT, there's no rejecting it's unmistakably recognisable as an . Around the back, you'll discover a cool brand-new tail light design, and although there's a diffuser and some vents, the stick of truth has actually found them all to be fake! In spite of sharing the exact same underpinnings as the AMG SL, the only thing borrowed from this automobile's style can be found along the side – the doors! Everything else is special to the GT. In advance, you'll find the immediately recognisable aggressive-style grille, coupled with a load of vents which are really real!

Step within and the GT is a charming automobile to be in. There's Alcantara on the steering wheel and you'll find weighty metal paddle shifters on either side, and there's a substantial infotainment screen on the centre of the dash. The turbine-style vents look cool, however sadly, there's a fair bit of inexpensive products to be discovered in the cabin. What's more, the cover for the sun visor needs to be run by hand! Not what you would expect to discover in an automobile that costs from โ‚ค 165,000.

When it pertains to engines, all versions of the are powered by a 4-litre twin-turbo V8. The entry-level is the AMG 55 model, which puts down 476hp and 700Nm. The cars and truck we have here, the 63, produces 585hp and 800Nm, while the range-topper is the GT 63 S E-Performance. It's a hybrid, so it comes with a V8 and an electrical motor, which combine to produce 816hp and an eye-watering 1,420 Nm!

So what do you think – could the new GT be a 911 beater? You'll need to stick to Mat and see for yourself!

      Probably because the Ipad only has to deal with a small number of inputs . while the cars need to work with the electronics of the entire car with the limited capacity they have .

      Because cars usually have industrial grade processors and they have lifespan of 15+ years. Most iPad A series chips wont have drivers available for them within 8-10 years. Not to mention how temperature sensitive those iPads are. Leave you iPad on the dash of your car in a hot summer day, it will 100% give you a heat warning and will stop working. 99% of infotainments wont do that.

      I have the same infotainment system in my SL and I have to say it works great. Very smooth to use, intuitive controls. One can certainly debate the looks, but from a functionality standpoint I’ve never had one in a car that worked better.
