2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT vs. Its Competition

2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Porsche's 911 is the most obvious competitor to the Mercedes-AMG GT in terms of look, performance, and price.

The Chevrolet Corvette is nearly the same performance for much less—or more in Z06 guise—although it doesn't carry the same cachet as the Mercedes.

Maserati's GranTurismo provides the same thrilling soundtrack from its engine, and Italian verve, but gives up quite a bit in performance.

The new Aston Martin DB11 is just as rare, just as gorgeous, and plenty British—but you'll pay for it.
