    Anyone here have experience with the Mercedes AMG GT?

    I'm debating on grabbing one. I'm keeping the R8 if anyone asks. I may sell my Nissan GT-R for one instead. Anyone have any firsthand experience with them?

    I’ve test driven 3 different cars past couple years and I just can’t fall in love with it. It has great interior, looks and material but driving R8s past 8 years has spoiled me. Power and exhaust note are good but I just can’t pull the trigger on one. Haven’t driven the roadster. Same for the RType jag. I wanted one from day it hit street but haven’t owned one , yet.

    What was holding you back on the AMG GT at the end of the day?

    I test drove one before buying the R8. It's a nice ride but it in no way wowed me to the point that I had to have one. The naturally aspirated V10 though is just a different experience. I plan on probably getting into a GTC coupe eventually...like any AMG, they are depreciating like crazy so I'm sitting on the side lines patiently

    Not totally sure. I’ve owned several MB AMGs but didn’t want to give up R8 for it. Since you keeping yours that makes difference. I’ve been looking again at the AMG GT , roadster. The wife is holding me firm on the R8. Says it stays.

    Keep the GTR and dont bother with Mercedes Benz..
    That’s my opinion of course.

    I have a 2016 GTS EDITION ONE
    Great car, did a tune and output went to 639/600
    Car is the opposite of a GTR
    as you know: raw versus refined in every way
    I've had about everything and it's a solid option
    2011 v10, 6 speed, lava gray, 3m, VF750 supercharged, GR wing/splitter and vent covers, custom steering wheel, sprint booster, fabspeed exhaust, lowered on H+R springs, 10/12mm spacers, powder coated wheels, PS2, K+N....

    Just checked. One can get an MY17 for $70K. That is a good price for a daily driver...
