First test drive Mercedes AMG GT

Fresh off the Press including bad Google English

M ometimes it is easy. To the new Mercedes-AMG GT to understand, no one needs much explanation as the SUV Van Coupe gizmos that populate our roads lately. It extends a short press on the start button. Evil bollernd, sprotzelnd, tremendous sound skips the newly developed eight-cylinder and leaves no doubt about what this car is built: to have fun, nothing else! This makes the Mercedes extremely personable and is almost anachronistic in a time when the runtergehungerte mini-engine and lower CO 2 emissions are considered a standard for successful engineering services. An exhaust flap ensures socially acceptable sound

Dreaming is thus expressly allowed. And necessary. For yet we can not drive the GT - but a world exclusive ride in the passenger seat, we were able AMG wrest. As a driver for this first test drive we have chosen Bernd Schneider. He is not only one of the most successful and well-known racers in Germany, but was also instrumental in the development of the athlete. Shortly after the already described primal scream during ignition of the motor falls into a satisfied idle, babbling good to himself. This is the standard exhaust valves, which limits the noise level in the city traffic on a socially acceptable level. GT is called " Gran Turismo ", ie big trip. And that dominated the AMG perfect. Amazingly unpretentious take on the Mercedes ride. Just not a loud roar like a Ferrari, not a wooden rolling like a Porsche. In dynamic mode, the Mercedes makes goosebumps

Driving Machine: GT springs supple, its performance, the twin-turbo V8 provides almost casually.

The GT is made of different stuff, cushions supple, the sports bucket seats offer just the right balance between cozy, comfortable and necessary lateral support, the twin-turbo engine shakes almost casually getting enough power from the sleeve, and the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission smooths the transitions without unrefined jerking. Very confident, these athletes. By the way, shows the GT, why it is good that she is with this in AMG Coupι the penalty is not copied, but have given him very own trains. He has an honest character. Rests in itself, provides the driver with every rev, with each wheel rotation, the feeling of being one with the car - as we can see the satisfied smirk on his face from Bernd Schneider. When we city traffic and highway behind us to explore on angled roads driving, the GT shows its other side - which can also really angry.

The Dynamic mode sharpens the twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder engine, the chassis transforms the coupe into a bona fide racer. And only the sound! Just over 3000 revolutions starts the over-Mercedes yelling and produce goose bumps. Schneider remains on the gas, from the huge tailpipes are an impressive sound sets in the mountainous region of Stuttgart. The GT also comes without electronic driving aids from

I like the DTM Champion: Precise directs a GT, remains up in the border area neutral.

Actually hardly increase, but goes as the former DTM driver before the first turn off the gas, the escaping exhaust snotty bubbling sounds. Zack, automatically are the fine hairs on his arms again vertically - this car, people with gasoline created in the blood! This is also the handling. Precise directs a GT, to remain in the border area neutral. Ugly understeer at least they have thanks to the balanced weight distribution of 47 him: 53 percent do not even trained. Never before has a Mercedes as sporty. "I do not have so balanced road sports car down," Schneider is on record. To show what he means, he disables all electronic driving aids. Brake extremely late in curves in, go early on the gas. The traction is perfect, even when you're out on the last groove. No unstable Heck, no helpless by Grip -seeking rear wheels.

As the AMG at the end of our test drive crackling cools down by the roadside, we ask the question of price - in this class expect even the rich, though not to the penny. 134,351 euros is the GT cost as "S" with 510 hp - located between 911 Carrera S and Turbo. Here he is, the sharpest opponents of Elfers. It's simple.
