Mercedes-Benz AMG GT exclusive preview

When Mercedes launches its all-new AMG GT sports car in April 2015, it hopes to give the Porsche 911 a run for its money. The AMG GT has a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine offering either 455bhp or 503bhp, with the more powerful GT S promising 0-62 in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 193mph.

Mercedes claims the new car – which replaces the SLS – is relatively practical, too, with a 350-litre boot. It also has distinctive, modern interior and offers a wide array of safety features.

The AMG GT will be on display for the first time at the Paris motor show – but What Car? is inviting readers to see it straight after, at an exclusive private preview next Wednesday, October 8.

You'll be among the first members of the public in the UK to see the car, and we'll be asking you to get up close to the static vehicle and give your view of it, inside and out. We'll video your comments for footage online at

If you're interested in seeing the all-new AMG GT and you're available to join the What Car? Reader Test Team at Mercedes-Benz in Milton Keynes next Wednesday, October 8, from 3-5.30pm, get in touch now.
