Harris heads to California to check out AMG's latest weapon.
Unveiled back in September, we’ve had to be pretty patient to see the Mercedes-AMG GT S being driven how the carmaker intended. But the wait has been worth it, as the main man Chris Harris is the first to give the new 911 fighter a good thrashing, heading to the Laguna Seca Raceway to destroy some rubber. The more potent AMG GT S will arrive at dealerships first, so Harris gets to enjoy the 503-hp 4.0-liter V8 packaged in a compact, aerodynamically-optimized body and the sublime sound it makes from its typically awesome AMG quad exhaust.
The legendary California circuit seems the ideal spot to test drive the AMG GT S, but we look forward to seeing how it fares on the road. But that’s for another day. Until then, some track time will have to suffice.
