Will arrive in dealerships in April.
There’s been no official confirmation as yet, but a leaked internal dealer document courtesy of Jalopnik reveals the Mercedes-AMG GT S will base from $129,900. While optional essentials will likely add a few grand to the final tally, the document suggests standard features on Mercedes’ Porsche 911 fighter include a nappa leather interior, a Burmester surround sound system, eight airbags, Keyless-Go, COMAND infotainment system, Collision Prevention Assist Plus (CPA+) and Parktronic.
Complete with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 503 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, the GT S will arrive stateside in April, giving Porsche 911 Turbo buyers something else to think about. Considerably more than the similarly powered Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, but around $20k less than the turbocharged 911, the premium sports car wars are about to begin. Choose your weapon.
