The 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S is a rear-drive two-seat sports coupe that serves as the brand’s flagship performance model and is the second vehicle developed solely by Mercedes-AMG.

To achieve its performance goals, Mercedes-AMG designed a new engine for the GT S, a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine mated to a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission, producing 503 hp, 479 lb-ft and 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds.

The power goes to the rear wheels via a transaxle, which helps to keep the weight distribution at what Mercedes calls an optimum 47/53% front-rear split. The V8 itself is mounted sufficiently far back on the aluminium spaceframe that the manufacturer prefers to describe it as front mid-engined.

The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S goes for a base price of $130,825 in the US.
