£150k: and this is going to appeal to Bobby Ewing or the latest Princess of Wales?

“If you say so ….”

But it isn’t going to convert any 911 buyers to AMG
 
Also noticed today it weighs over 1900kg and has more weight over the front axle than the rear.

So 200kg-250kg more than the 911 Turbo S.

What a disaster.

They sure look nice and if you have kids or anyone under 5ft to carry around in the back then it kind of make sense, but leave it 18 months though, you'll pick one up for 50% off.

I'm not sure what segment this car is aimed at.
 
I like this revised version but also like the current version. The early models are around £50k upwards so makes them a tempting proposition. However, when venturing over the £100k mark I’d be in an FF all day long.

Yup, came to that conclusion a year ago.

1970kg call it 2000 - hideous

My 204 is circa 1690kg.

Still heavy with a Quadrifoglio weighing in at 1540kg....no way a pure sports car like the GT should weigh nearly half a ton more than a family 4 door sports saloon.....even a 501 horse power saloon.
 
Resistance to change means that people prefer the old model when the new one comes out, especially owners of said old model. For most people that changes over time as we all get used to the new model.

Gauging the reaction of a group of 64 AMG GT owners (in the UK) the reaction hasn’t been good at all. Not only was the splash a negative one in the whole, it was very short lived - discussion faded away already.

Not one of those 64 owners have commented the rear seats are useful, the only comments are the negative implications of having them. They either have other cars or don’t have children.

Apparently the engine is the same as the W177 in the E 63 S, and combined with 4matic, rear seats and forward seating position, someone ironically described it as a coupe version of the GT 63 4 door!

Of course the GT 63 4 door was billed a a four door and four seat version of the two seat coupe. If you need rear seats, 4matic and more practicality then the GT 63 4 door is perhaps the better option!

It will be interesting to see road test verdicts. Let’s hope it fairs better with the media than the C 63 S ePerformance. FWIW I like both, but perhaps I’m easily pleased, and not the target demographic.

I’ll stick with my Mercedes-AMG ForFour Black Series Night Edition Premium Plus 125 Navi powered by Brabus. It has a more pure and analogue driving experience. Nothing to do with the £180k to change.
 
^^^x2 the headlight mod was very well received and informative. Great videos as always 👌
 
Soup classic motoring, something a little different
