Here at Suzanne Dranow, it’s no secret that we love to check out all of the latest luxury properties on the market in the Los Angeles area. After all, that’s what we do. But a big part of living here isn’t just about the homes – the city is filled with upscale restaurants, luxury boutique shopping, and plenty of rich and famous residents. It’s also one city that lets you see some of the most impressive luxury cars in the country. Few other cities are home to so many amazing vehicles, and one that is certainly turning heads on the LA roads is the new Mercedes AMG GT.
The new Mercedes AMG GT was actually a thing of rumor for some time, and around 2012 there were whispers that it would eventually be released and was under development. Now that it’s officially out there on the roads, most agree that this is one of the most unique and flashy luxury cars Mercedes has released to date.
The body style of the car is a classic 2 door coupe, and it’s intended as an heir to the SLS AMG legacy. Other features include:
- 7 Speed dual clutch transmission
- 4.0 liter V8 biturbo engine
- Low weight of around 3,400 pounds
- Aluminum alloy body
The sleek profile stands out, and the engine is capable of taking drivers from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds. Additionally, fast power transfers and the low weight help with cornering and those who’ve driven it agree that it’s among the most precise handling cars they’ve had the pleasure to pilot.
The inside is just as beautiful, and focuses on the aviation theme. With a wing-shaped dashboard, four central spotlight vents, and a wide range of styling colors made from fine Nappa leather. The center console features a wide range of controls, letting you twist a knob to modify gear changes, suspension setup, exhaust sound, and more. You can literally switch from comfort to race to sport modes in an instant.
Luxury matters for those who call LA home, and the new Mercedes AMG GT is certainly something that exemplifies that. Incredibly, the price is still under $150,000, which means that this vehicle is one of the most affordable luxury sports cars out there.
If you’re considering moving to LA, there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing a few of these on the road. And if you really want to settle into the lap of luxury, you might even decide to own one.
