AMG GT The GT/GT S is the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG. Its front mid-engine design with a rear transaxle, the use of aluminium lightweight construction and its newly developed AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine underscores the hallmark of AMG driving performance.

GTR advice

so I have an order for an AMG GTR, the build has to be in by the end of the month.

I absolutely love the car, but I wonder if I would be happier with an r8 v10, or an e63 S. I have the refresh gt3 rs on order, so I'm not sure there is a point as I would only occasionally track the GTR, and I might even then just get an Ariel atom to track.

With that said, the GTR sounds so dang amazing, especially for the price point. To me its the ultimate GT besides the TDF or Lusso. What are your thoughts? If you think I am a bit confused, you are right.

Unless you are a track junkie I don't think the GTR will reward the happiness you seek.
It will be another garage trophy until the next new model with more capability arrives.

I ask myself the test question if i could only have one toy car, what would it be?

If you are not going to track the car then consider a GTC as George Kacher recommends in his latest GTR review.
