Key to its performance chops is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, which sounds absolutely brutal under load. It also supplies 503-horsepower for a car which tips the scale at about 3,600 pounds. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires provide proper grip for accelerating, turning, and stopping quickly.

Matching that absolutely decimating performance is an exterior to make everyone drool. Magnetite Black Metallic paint and strategic carbon-fiber pieces look appropriately sinister. They also allow the red brake calipers, which peek out from behind the black factory wheels, to really jump out. A long hood and tapered rear, plus a high beltline combined with a low-slung roof help communicate the message this is a vehicle meant to be driven hard.

As for the interior, that look continues thanks to a Silver Pearl and Black color scheme. The Silver Designo seatbelts add a nice accent. Soft and well-contoured Nappa leather seats provide luxurious support as you flog this sports car through chicanes on the track. The performance steering wheel features Dinamica side grips for extra assurance and additional comfort. Speaking of luxuries, this car really delivers with seat heaters, memory settings, smartphone integration, navigation, and more.

The Mercedes-AMG GT S line has been in production from the 2015 model year forward. Lewis Hamilton of Formula One fame helped with developing the car. While it faced tough scrutiny, plenty of automotive reviewers have praised the GT S for its explosive and dynamic performance capabilities.
