Rated for you by America’s best test team
Even if you aren't drawn in by the seductive sheet metal alone, the AMG GT's superlative blend of performance, comfort and luxury might seal the deal. No expense has been spared in dressing the interior with luxe materials and high-tech touches. Only a moderately confusing infotainment system and average storage capacity keep it from being perfect. We'd still take one in a heartbeat.
The AMG GT has the performance to back up its sultry looks. The twin-turbo V8 accelerates from a stop authoritatively. Our GT C coupe test car accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. It's not the quickest car of its kind, but you also don't need to be an ace pilot to use it. The steering is superb, requiring a light touch at low speeds but a reassuringly firm effort once speed builds. It corners flat and has impressively high grip limits.

Overall, the AMG GT is easy to drive. The dual-clutch automatic shifts smoothly but can be a little slow to react to moderate throttle inputs in the standard drive mode. The turning radius is tight thanks to rear-axle steering.
The ride is extremely comfortable, even without qualifiers like "for a sports car." In the adaptive dampers' Comfort mode, it offers no harsher a ride than an AMG-ified S-Class. That said, don't use the stiffest setting unless you're on a track — the body is jittery even on smooth roads. And though the racy bucket seats are nicely supportive and offer a range of adjustments, they're thinly padded. Those looking at this as a true grand tourer might be disappointed.

Dual-zone climate control works well to keep the interior temperature regulated. Seat heaters can roast chicken on their hottest setting. There's a bit of wind noise at speed, and the engine is always producing its satisfying snarl. The tires are noisy, but that's what you get with the ultra-aggressive rubber.
The AMG GT coupe's cabin fits between the seriously cramped Jaguar F-Type and the decadently roomy Porsche 911. Headroom is good, but this trim's standard sunroof reduces available room for tall drivers. Thankfully, the good reach/rake adjustment of the steering wheel ensures a comfortable seating position for most drivers.

Like most low sports cars, it's a little tough to gracefully exit the GT, mostly due to the wide sills and the front door opening. But the tall roof makes it pretty easy to enter. A less than intuitive touchpad replaces the previous dial for controlling the user interface. It requires deep familiarization before you can use it properly.
Despite the AMG GT's status as a low-volume sports car, Mercedes has done an admirable job keeping it current in tech offerings. Three USB ports are standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. A number of safety systems are standard on the GT C, and none of them emitted false warnings during our testing.

Though it doesn't have the newest MBUX infotainment system, the AMG GT coupe has MBUX-like graphics over last-generation COMAND hardware. This doesn't work well in practice since MBUX has a confusing menu structure that's hard to navigate, but it's usable thanks to the MBUX voice controls. COMAND is not as adept and presents a steep learning curve. The Burmester audio system is seriously impressive but can't quite prevent exterior noise from seeping in.
The AMG GT has slightly smaller cargo area (10.1 cubic feet) than competitors, and the space seems even smaller if you opt to deploy the cargo cover. The trunklid is at your knee and the hatch doesn't open super high, so it's fairly easy to hit your head on the latch as you bend in to stow or unload gear. At least it has cutouts aft of the wheels for golf clubs, and the cargo hold is big enough to take a large suitcase.

As in many sports cars, small-item storage space is limited. The door pockets are shallow, narrow leather pouches that run the length of the doors. They're good for a set of keys and other small knickknacks but not much else. The center console is small but usable, and the cupholders hold typical-size water bottles.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C coupe, which is what we tested, gets an EPA-estimated 17 mpg combined. That's similar to comparable sports cars producing this amount of power. We achieved 17.9 mpg on our standardized evaluation route, indicating that the EPA's estimate should be achievable in real-world driving.
Every inch of the interior is draped in leather, aluminum, carbon fiber or faux suede. This is a truly impressive interior with no expense spared. You might hear a rattle here or there when going over rough pavement, but this isn't unusual for a stiffly sprung sports car. The AMG GT is expensive, as you'd expect a Mercedes sports car to be. But the price seems about right given the performance and refinement you get.

Bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties are covered for four years/50,000 miles, which is right in line with competitors' coverage. Roadside assistance is covered as long as the vehicle is under warranty, and extended warranties are available.
The AMG GT is deliriously fun to drive fast, and you'll probably hit your own limits before the car's. Booting the throttle from a standstill produces zero squirm but very rapid acceleration and tons of glorious noise from the exhaust.

But even if you drive sedately, the AMG GT makes an everlasting impression. From the drool-worthy exterior design to the Neiman Marcus interior, you'll never forget even just stepping into one. Turn the (figurative) key and drive up some twisty roads, and the driving experience will cement itself in your memory. This car will draw crowds, especially in a matte color. You will commit unspeakable atrocities to get your hands on one.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT started out for the 2016 model year as a two-seat coupe but has since grown to include a convertible and a four-door sedan. It's a broad and somewhat confusing lineup given the different body styles, trim levels and engines, but ultimately all you need to know is that this is Mercedes' most sport-oriented model.

Sleek and aggressive styling is the first thing that stands out with the coupe and the convertible. But the sound and stout performance from the available V8 engines is certainly a close second. New for 2021 is the Black Series, which offers race car-inspired styling and aerodynamic tweaks as well as a 720-horsepower version of the car's twin-turbo V8 engine.

It should come as no surprise that the AMG GT's main rival is the Porsche 911. Both are halo sports cars for their brands. But there's also strong competition from the BMW M8, especially in its Competition trim, and even the Acura NSX. Read our Expert Rating below to get our test team's take on the AMG GT's performance, comfort and more.

Which AMG GT does Edmunds recommend?

We would go directly to the GT C for the coupe and the convertible, and not just for the extra power. This trim level opens up more paint colors as well as the option for even higher-quality leather upholstery. There's a standard panoramic roof on the coupe as well, which can help make the interior a bit brighter. If only the most intense AMG GT experience will do, the new Black Series is only a little more than twice the price of the GT C.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT videos

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm going to talk about my personal picks for the 10 most beautiful cars on sale today. [MUSIC PLAYING] I'm well aware that style is subjective. I don't claim to be the arbiter of style and taste, and I realize that one person's trash might be someone else's treasure. I'm sure we're going to have some disagreements on my picks. Leave a comment below. Leave a civilized comment below. So let's jump right into it. [MUSIC PLAYING] My first pick is the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, the C8, the mid-engine Corvette. It is a stunner in person. It's very angular. It's almost like a stealth fighter with all these facets everywhere. It's sharp. It's cool. It capitalizes on a lot of potential that I thought the NSX didn't. I'm a fan of these forward-leaning angles that the designers put into it. I like that it's almost attacking the air in front of it. Also, I like that they still have some of the character of the old Corvette in the hood here with these streaks. The proportions are great. Unlike some mid-engine sports cars, the Corvette still has a decent-sized hood, and the back end isn't too big and boxy or bulbous like some other mid-engine sports cars can get. To me, everything just sort of works well together, and it's just super sharp. And by the way, all of these pics are in just random order. There's no rhyme or reason to these. My next pick? Dodge Challenger. [MUSIC PLAYING] This is impressive, because the Dodge Challenger hasn't been redesigned since it was introduced in 2008-- well, reintroduced in 2008. It still has a lot of that sinister character that sets it apart from other muscle cars, and indeed, any other car out there. The design cues that I really like are pretty much all up front. It's this brow that cuts into the grill right there from the hood dipping over. It's almost like Clint Eastwood's furrowed death stare at you. It's mean-looking. It almost demands respect before it's even moving. The newest touches come here in the wheel arches here. They're a little bit tacked-on, but from different angles it, looks really good. It just kind of widens it out and interrupt that big slab of nothingness on the door here. And I like that they actually kept it unadorned on that door panel and that body panel. They didn't go with any fake vents or stupid chrome accents. Nice and clean. And that's kind of the theme with a lot of the cars that I like. [MUSIC PLAYING] Ah, que bella machina. This is the Ferrari Roma. It's not an all-out supercar for them. It's a Grand Tour. And I love it. I love it for a lot of things that we'll see later in other cars. First off, a nice, pointed long hood like that. These sharp angles are just gorgeous here. I'm not that big of a fan of this air dam underneath here that's kind of jutting out, but I'm not going to argue with Ferrari designers. One thing I'm really a big fan of, though, is the way that this compound curve meets a straight, and then it pops back into another compound curve in the front. There's no real transition. It just kind of smoothly blends from one end to the other. In other cars, you'll see a curve, and then an abrupt stop, and then a straight-away. This is just sinuous and beautiful and muscular. Man, from nose to tail, it is absolutely gorgeous. [MUSIC PLAYING] One of my favorites, the Jaguar F-type. The spiritual successor to the E-type from the early 1960s, it's not trying to be this campy homage to the E-type. It's its own thing. But it still has a few subtle hints. First off, we have the headlights here, this plexiglass covering that's a little bit of a nod to the old E-type. Of course, there's the grill, this big ovoid. But in the case of the F-type, more of a rounded corner, inverted trapezoid. It gives it enough character to know that it's from the same company as the E-type, but it's not trying to be the E-type. I'm also a fan of the way they did these air intakes here, these cooling vents. They didn't go with this plastic surround. It's just kind of carved into the face of the F-type. Unfortunately for the 2021 refresh, they actually put some plastic surrounds around that. And I'm not that thrilled with the way it looks. It might grow on me later, but so far, I'm still a bigger fan of this pre-refresh F-type. Other styling cues include, in the tail light, this round feature here, which is a nod to the old E-type, as well as this barrel-shaped side that they put in. Of course, there's the silhouette, which tapers down to a wonderful little point in the back, just like the old E-type. Here's a shot of the reflector I'm talking about on the old E-type, that little round feature. But there's one thing I wish that Jaguar did with the F-type, and that would be to use this glorious light metallic blue color that they used for the concept or pre-production car. It never made it into the order guides, and I was really hoping that would be in it. [MUSIC PLAYING] We've been raving about the Telluride, not just because of the way it looks, but because of the way it drives and the value proposition. It's just a really great mid-sized three-row SUV. When it comes to design, I like that it's more upright and boxy than a lot of other SUVs. I also like this amber surround here. You can tell that a Telluride is coming behind you from a ways off, thanks for that distinctive running light. They used a lot of Kia's styling cues throughout, but it's not gross about the way they did it. These double tabs are their signature throughout the Kia lineup. It's there. It's also in the top of the windshield there, and a little hint of it right here in that B-pillar. Overall, it's a really tidy design. It's industrial it's a little beefier than pretty much anything else in its class. [MUSIC PLAYING] Not my favorite car to drive. I wished it was a little more wild and lively than it is. But it is a looker, for sure. It still turns heads a few years into its production. Again, long coupe hood. And I haven't been a fan of this Lexus spindle grill since it came out, but this is actually the first instance where I do like it, mostly because this car was designed to have it from the beginning. When they first started incorporating that spindle grill, they used it on cars that weren't necessarily designed to have. It All of these lines all come together right at the logo. They just all point to it. It's a nice touch. It gives it that sharpness, that pointiness, that you kind of want from a wild-looking sport coupe like this. Another thing I'm a fan of is this cut-out right here, this little air intake, maybe for brake cooling, maybe for trans cooling. Who knows? But I like how they didn't, again, put some cheesy plastic surrounds in there. It's just kind of sliced into the side of the body. It's graceful. It's sharp. It serves a purpose. Around the back of the LC, it continues that line where everything converges on that one logo point. I like that it's a theme that's carried over to the back. One thing I'm not too crazy about, though, is this drop-down here off the tail light. It seems like it's just a little bit out of place. I realize that's part of their corporate style, but every time I see it I always see this tier line under a cheetah's face. Maybe it's not the worst thing to be associated with. [MUSIC PLAYING] My next pick-- it's the Mazda 3 hatchback. Mazda has just been killing it when it comes to design, and the 3 hatchback is, at least for me, a prime example. I love this big grill that's very distinctive, but it's not overly horsey, in my opinion. They have these wonderful compound curves that are built into the bodywork without any sharp creases that almost every other car has. One my other favorite hatchbacks is the old Alfa Romeo Brera, that had this beautiful, rounded hatchback tail. It's very distinctive. It sets itself apart from everything else out there. It's a clean design, and it's carried over into everything that Mazda does. The CX-5, the CX-3, CX-30-- they're all what I consider the most attractive in their classes. And the CX-9 would have been, or it was, until the Telluride came along. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Polestar 1-- wow. The first time I saw this in the flesh, it was stunning. It's just such a clean design, really not a lot of adornment. Sure, it's got a long hood, coupe proportions again, a stubby tail in the back. But there's a simplicity about it that just drew me in instantly. This grill is certainly an echo of Volvo, which is the parent company, but it's missing the sash and the Volvo logo in the middle. I'm also a huge fan of these side streaks in the nose of the car. It's almost aviation-like to me, like a Canard. Again, really nice, simple, unadorned side here, and we have this little feature here that catches light, and then a subtle little crease here that casts shadow below that. It gives it some visual interest without having to resort to something kitschy or gaudy. I had a design instructor who gave us this quote that I keep using when it comes to car design. And I'm paraphrasing here, but it's, a pretty shape doesn't need a lot of jewelry. And this is pretty much unadorned perfection to me. Of course, you can't talk about the Polestar 1 without also mentioning the S90 from Volvo. There's a lot of similarities there. I realize that. And I love the S90 for the exact same reasons. You can see down here that Volvo added that chrome strip down there. Doesn't really add too much visually for me. I prefer to see something, in other words, like the Polestar 1, where it's not there. Again, simplicity, cleanliness of design. Of course, not all my picks are going to be exotics or sport coupes. I can't not talk about the most popular class of vehicles, pickup trucks. And for my money, it's the Ram 1500. [MUSIC PLAYING] The new design is a little classier, a little upmarket. In this top trim here, you get a lot of chrome. I'm outlining here this little step up from the headlight into the grill, and we'll get to that in a bit. But I like how everything is very cohesive, and it all seems to belong together. One thing I'm not a big fan of is this kind of badge right here. It just seems a little out of place in an otherwise very clean design. The design also carries around to other Ram 1500s, like the Rebel, which has a very different take on the grill, but it's equally impressive and aggressive in its execution. Getting back to the headlights integrating into the grill and all that good stuff, it goes back to the introduction of this new generation of Ram pickups in the mid-1990s. This is the heavy-duty version of it. And right here, that headlight line there steps straight up into the grill and then back down for the other headlight. Around that time-- I think was the Kenworth T600 big rig had that same kind of sloping hood, and in that integration of the headlights into the fenders. And you can see it here. I mean, that is very much exaggerated the way it is here in the Ram 1500. But it's that sort of industrial, utilitarian design that made me really love it. I wish that Ram, however, capitalized on that design back then and produced a rival to the Suburban, a larger SUV with that kind of style. My final pick is yet another sport coupe. It is the Mercedes Benz AMG GT. [MUSIC PLAYING] Again, it's the familiar theme of really long hood, a wide maw of a grill here that denotes that it needs a lot of air to breathe, like a beast. And I mean, again, really huge intakes here as well. One thing I'm not too crazy about is this feature right here. I like that it's a cut-out, and it's not surrounded by plastic, but it's this badge right here that kind of throws me off. I feel like maybe if they did something a little more subtle, it would have been better, at least personally for me. Again, man, there's so many things to like about the proportions of this car. And another echo here is that kick-out there that catches light. It just lends it a little more visual interest. And then at the very back of the car, it's really, really quite rounded over, almost egg-like, like a Porsche 928. but they broke it up and kept it from looking overly bulbous by introducing these cutouts here. Whether or not they're actual heat extractors that function or not, there is a function. And that's aesthetically, it breaks up a lot of the monotony back here and keeps it looking a little sharper, a little more racy. In any case, those are my picks for the 10 most beautiful cars on sale today. I'm sure you have some disagreements with my picks and probably thought I left out a few and probably included a few that didn't deserve to be. Leave a comment below. Leave a civilized comment below.

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT vs. the competition

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

2021 Audi RS 7

2021 Audi RS 7

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT vs. Audi RS 7

Audi's RS 7 is the ultimate version of the A7 sedan and new for 2021. Like the AMG GT, it's styled like a coupe and has a hatchback trunk. Underhood is a 591-horsepower V8. It's a prime rival to the AMG GT 63, but there's also the related S7 that's akin to the GT 43 and GT 53. The Audi's tech interface lacks some of the pizzazz of the Benz's system, but otherwise the RS 7 is a more polished luxury sport sedan.

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT vs. Porsche Panamera

It would be fair to say the Porsche Panamera is the sports car of luxury sedans. Even when equipped with one of its lesser six-cylinder engines, the Panamera is genuinely fun to drive and handles better than cars half its size. It offers more cargo capacity than the Mercedes, but we prefer the tech and the driving aids in the AMG.

Compare Mercedes-Benz AMG GT & Porsche Panamera features 

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT vs. BMW M8 Gran Coupe

BMW's M8 Gran Coupe is surprisingly adept at both speed and long-distance comfort. Like the Mercedes AMG GT sedan, the Gran Coupe is the sedan version that seats four people; the regular M8 is a two-door. The M8 offers better visibility and a quieter interior than the AMG GT.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
