Once upon a time there was a car tuner based in Germany named AMG that converted sedate Mercedes into howling banshees. Mercedes-Benz was suitably impressed; while they had perfected comfort they had no clue how to build a truly fast car, so they acquired AMG. In addition to producing MB-based sedans that exemplify performance, AMG transformed the brand’s flagship coupe from the favorite ride of poodle-owning condo ladies into a full-on, barely street-legal racecar. A 577-hp V8 linked to a 7-speed automatic transmission allows the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R to do almost everything a Porsche 911 can do, while having a proper rear seat and a real trunk. While the 911 is a tight fit for anyone larger than a ballerina, the GT R allows those who shop at the Big & Tall store the ability to comfortably drive a supercar. The rear-wheel drive GT R demands respect when you press the Loud Pedal, guzzling more gas than a herd of Prius (or is it Prii?), but it’s perhaps the ultimate getaway vehicle for those demanding performance with comfort; MBUSA.com.
