The Mercedes-AMG GT R in Magno Green Hell!

I was incredibly lucky to get a sneak peek at the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT R today! It is a monster for the streets and looks perfect in Magno Green Hell. This is the second vehicle that Mercedes-AMG has developed from the ground up. You can feel the track intentions!

The matte paint really shows off the long lines! The GT R has a wider body than the other GT siblings and it really shows.

The impact of the Magno matte Green Hell paint cannot be overstated. You think you have seen green cars before but you have not. This car is GREEN!

GT R Aero

Every part of the GT R has been aerodynamically perfected. The rear wing is fixed but is manually adjustable for your preferred track settings. The front of the vehicle has active AirPanels and AirCurtains to move air for both cooling and aerodynamics.

Mercedes GTR grille

The Panamericana grille is my new favorite, displacing the silver diamond grille. The 15 vertical slats are incredibly dramatic, emphasizing the size of the air intakes.

The GT R designers were careful to be efficient without tacking on a bunch of flips, wings and other ugly aero elements. The scoops and louvers that are included are both attractive and functional. Estimated 0-60 is 3.5 seconds and the top speed is 198 mph.

The GT is supposed to be the daily driver. The GT S is a little bit faster. The GT C wears 50% of this body kit and the GT R is a full on track ready street car. With a base price of $157,000 I think the GT R is going to become the attainable dream car. I can’t wait to see a Green Hell GT R in the wild!

Here is a quick walk-around of the vehicle. It still can’t show you the incredible color! You must see one in person as soon as possible!

Atlanta International Auto Show 2017 – Featuring Mercedes-Benz!

The Atlanta International Auto Show is this weekend at the Georgia World Congress Center. I stopped by to see what was on display.

Mercedes-Benz brought the big guns this year! The not-yet-released GT C Roadster is absolutely perfect! It’s like they knew I would be there and brought my favorite color combo! The lines on this car are so elegant and sporty. It could not be better!

The G550 4×4² is the star of any show it attends. I think this one is designo Manufaktur Paprika and it brought the crowds!

The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is expected to be limited to 30 units for the United States! This looks very much like the S550 or S63 cabriolet but turned up to 100. The extra diamonds in the interior and the exterior trim make it extremely special.

The soon-to-be-released 2018 E400 coupe Launch Edition in Magno Matte Cashmere White was one of my favorites. It looks tremendously different from the current body style and distinct from the C-Class coupe.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabriolet launch edition was present! This is the car I call S’more because of the marshmallow exterior and the chocolate and graham cracker interior. It really is a knockout!

The GLS63 AMG looked aggressive in white with black trim. I don’t get to see nearly enough of these at the dealership.

The E400 Wagon has arrived! I was hoping for the AMG variant but it is always good to see the wagon on display.

Electric cars are starting to become more common for Mercedes-Benz and this S550 electric showcases the classic looks with new technology hiding inside.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Review by Jalopnik

GT S Review

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is SO FUN! That is my official review. Jalopnik recently drove one for the weekend and came to a similar conclusion. I love the colorful language in this review.

“So how do you make a car this expensive, this wild, this over-the-top, and still make it absolutely great? I’m still not sure how Mercedes did it, but the Mercedes-AMG GT S, incredibly dumb name and all, is great.”

“I thought it might be an attempt at a sporty coupe for general-practice doctors from a car company that makes big and heavy yachts for thoracic surgeons.”

“Plus that button just looks like a twin-barreled cannon carried around by a demented robot.”

“Foot on the brake, press the ENGINE START/STOP button, make sure the loud exhaust is in the “on” position, because the quiet setting is mostly just for unexpected funerals and pre-getaway crime, and then make sure the parking brake is off.”

“It’s direct and communicative, and even though you sit approximately 900 miles from the tip of the car, you still know at all times what the front of the car is doing. ”

“It’s a car that you not only want to drive, it wants to be driven right back at you. And there’s nothing I could possibly want more.”

Ordering a Mercedes-Benz – Worth the Wait!

I have had a bunch of orders arrive this month and they looked great! Without exception the new owners are thrilled to have a vehicle that is exactly what they wanted and unique in the marketplace. The customers waited between 60 days to 8 months for these masterpieces!

Mercedes-AMG GT S Reviews and Video

Does the automotive press like the new Mercedes-AMG GT S? Ummm, yeah.

Motor Trend: Mercedes-AMG GT S vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. Nissan GT-R Comparison

“It’s one of the best-handling cars I’ve ever driven. Certainly the best in the big, powerful bruiser category. Completely hooked up, without understeer. The car comes right into a corner, but the tail doesn’t come around. It’s just beautifully balanced all the time.”

“This thing is basically just the greatest car there is,” Lieberman said. “Too hyperbolic? Well, it’s certainly not as well-mannered as the Turbo S. And that’s a good thing. Philosophically speaking, a little bit of attitude, a bit of misbehaving, that’s kind of what we all prefer, right?”

“If you want thrills and excitement and entertainment, the GT S is your car. It does everything the 911 does but with just enough hints of danger to get your blood pumping. “It’ll kill momentum, jink, stick, and rocket away from bends like a Le Mans racer,” Martinez said. “If the GT S is indicative of a new era in AMG history, all others had better watch out.”

“Are you still grinning like an idiot three days later? If yes, well, special. Is the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S a special car? I’ll save you the suspense. Double hell yes it is!”

“But you don’t buy the AMG GT S for the numbers. You buy it because it eats up a road like nobody’s business.”

“I’ll end this one by stating the obvious. I’m totally smitten with the Mercedes-AMG GT S. It’s special. It checks all the boxes. It’s beautiful, it’s luxurious, and it runs down canyon roads like an axe murder on a parkour course, devouring everything in its path.”
