12 Mercedes AMG GT Models in One Clip: V8 Overload

British supercar spotter Shmee150 is currently in America, doing an exciting road trip from Malibu, LA, and ultimately hopes to reach San Francisco and the Sonoma valley. The car of choice is the 380 horsepower Jaguar F-Type V6 S, a roadster we had the pleasure of driving as well last year.

On his very first day, the Jag went down the Pacific Coast Highway through some spectacular roads and on to an unplanned meeting with 12 new Mercedes AMG GT and GT S models at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Nobody has ever filmed 12 Mercedes-AMG GT and GT S models in one place at a time, so the video is an exciting one.

If we're to do the average between the 462 hp of the AMG GT and the 510 hp of the GT S we reach a total of about 5800 horsepower available from all 12 cars. Add that to the 7,500 Nm of torque, 48 liters of displacement and 96 cylinders and you start to feel like we're talking about an ocean liner or yacht.

Together, these press cars should be worth about a million and a half of Mercedes-Benz's marketing money!

We know you guys are familiar with every nut and bolt found under that sexy new bonnet, but if you feel like sharing this video with your friends, they might need some tech facts. Here we go:

The AMG GT is Mercedes' new sportscar, a successor (but not direct replacement) to the SLS. It's powered by a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 it shares with the new C63 and is available in two stages of tune. The basic model gets you 462 hp and 600 Nm of torque for 115,430 euros, while the GT S bumps those numbers to 510 hp and 650 Nm, but demands 134,351 euros. With those kinds of prices, we suspect you're going to see a lot of them on the road soon.
