2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S Earns Best Car to Buy Nomination from Motor Authority
The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S comes with a 4.0-liter AMG biturbo V8 engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which combine to produce 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. The Mercedes-AMG GT S can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.7 seconds and it’s capable of a 193 mph top speed.
Kirk Bell of Motor Authority said the AMG GT S is “more balanced, more predictable, and more fun” than the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, which is the vehicle the GT S borrows many of its design cues. Bell also complimented the Mercedes-AMG GT S’s agile handling, as well as the great feel and feedback provided by the coupe.
The starting MSRP of $129,900 also allows the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S to compete with its German competitor, the 2016 Porsche 911.
Other vehicles to have been nominate for Motor Authority’s Best car to Buy award include the 2016 Mazda Miata MX-5, 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350, 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, Lamborghini Aventador SV, 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, and the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.
On January 4th, Motor Authority will announce the winner of its annual Best car to Buy award.
