Beer-budget AMG GT

Too poor for a Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R (see feature on page 86)? AMG has unveiled its ‘budget’ GT, which is even cheaper than the GT S version currently on sale in Australia. The GT slashes $25,000 off the GT S’s $295,000 price, and will have less power, torque and standard equipment, but is lighter than its flashier sibling. The 340kW/640Nm GT is expected to arrive in Australia in the next three months. All the style and performance of AMG’s flagship suddenly became just that little bit more attainable.
