It’s hard to say who the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT wants to topple most: the venerable Porsche 911 or the audacious Audi A8.
The 911 has the AMG GT beat in terms of everyday livability with its better view out, but the Porsche simply doesn’t offer the steering feel or the value of this Mercedes.
Audi’s R8 is closer in terms of its packaging and execution, but it comes across as more of a supercar lite than a sporting car reaching for the stars like the AMG GT—and there’s nothing wrong with either direction.
Look to the Lexus LC if straight-line performance isn’t your goal and you want to be pampered.
Spend more for an Aston Martin DB11 and you’ll be rewarded with bespoke everything.
Or spend less and you’ll wind up with the underrated Chevrolet Corvette that casts a shadow not all that unlike the AMG GT.
