Mercedes-AMG GT S 0-100 KM/H Acceleration Test and Exhaust Sound

Remember those 12 Mercedes-AMG GTs we showed you last week? Well we found out that at least one of them has been very naughty.

This beautiful golden coupe is young, but it's already the stuff of legend. The successor to the SLS is very much a car for the 21st century, fast, cool and technologically advanced. It's been designed to battle the Porsche 911 and on looks alone, we think it's got the flat-6 sportscar thoroughly beaten.

This next clip put together by the guys at shows how a 510 horsepower AMG GT S model accelerates from 0 to above 100 km/h (62 mph). It's so fast that the digital display in the middle of the dash has trouble keeping up with the speed of the car.

The officially official numbers suggest this model will reach the benchmark speed in 3.8 seconds and we have no reason to dispute Mercedes' claim after watching the video. What kind of Porsche do you need to play in the same league? How about a 430 horsepower 911 Carrera 4 GTS, which, despite having all-wheel drive, needs 0.2 seconds more to reach 100 km/h.

And if you really want some late night monster tales to tell your children, check out the other video we found. It shows the beautiful backside of the AMG GT as it sings a V8 concerto of power. Yes, it sounds a lot like the new C63, but who are we to complain.

So here's a question you: money being no object, if you'd have to pick between the Jaguar F-Type R and the Mercedes-AMG GT S, which would you get? On performance alone, the German car is clearly the winner, but on looks, the autoevolution team is evenly split.
