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.”
