Have a Mercedes-AMG GT but just can’t seem to find the right bike to park next to it in the garage? Times are tough out there, I totally get it. Luckily, the nice folks at MV Agusta do too, and they’re stepped in to lend a hand.
I have a problem. I've never managed to keep the throttle floored the entire stretch of Laguna Seca's front straight in anything over 500 horsepower. It's practically my home track, but as soon as I start climbing that crest, self-preservation kicks in and I lift. Every. Damn. Time. That changed in the Mercedes-AMG GT.
Two models with glorious twin-turbo V8 power. Top speeds that approach 200 mph. Loads of weight-saving aluminum. A racing-inspired gearbox. Right off the bat, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT seems like it will be a force to be reckoned with.
If you're going to buy a $200,000 sports car like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, what's the point in settling for a base model? Perhaps this is the thinking behind the company only selling the new, more powerful SLS AMG GT in the United States during the 2013 model year.
