What used Mercedes AMG GT sports will I get for my budget?
The Roadster isn't quite such the supercar-bargain that the normal coupe AMG GT is, as it was launched a year later, costs more new and so far seems to be holding on to its value a little better. Reason on about £80,000 as the bottom rung for a good 2017 car, with an average mileage and bought from a dealer or privately. spend between £80,000 and £100,000 on later 2018 models, and on the faster versions too. Spend over £100k on the post-facelift cars and faster versions of the pre-facelift car.
How much does it cost to run a Mercedes AMG GT sports?
The old saying is if you have to ask you can’t afford it. In fact, the regular GT Roadster claims an average fuel consumption of 24.8mpg, and corresponding CO2 emissions of 261g/km, which isn’t so bad for a car of this class. The sportier versions can only claim around 20-22mpg.
Cars registered before the tax changes of April 2017 came into place are taxed on CO2 output, and all versions of the AMG GT will cost you a lot. Those registered after will be charged at the cheaper base rate currently £140 a year, but they will attract a luxury tax surcharge applicable to all cars costing in excess of £40,000 new, as all AMG GTs do.
Expect insurance groups to be of the highest, too, and large premiums. Servicing costs will be high, as AMG GTs demand regular maintenance and preferably carried out at an AMG specialist.
