When you mention the AMG version of Mercedes, or even better the model GT S, the heart of the automotive experts is already beating fast and pumps pure adrenaline in blood. But what happens when Mercedes AMG GT S faces some of its bitter rivals such as the Porsche 911 Turbo at a race track?
These two are differently performed models but with a similar target. The battle, which you will see in the video below, demonstrates the difference between their the engines in practice, not on paper.
In one corner of the ring, we have the Mercedes, a rear wheel drive, with the engine, mounted forward and forced with 503hp, while in the other corner is the fighter Porsche, with all-wheel drive, rear engine, and 513bhp.
EVO Magazine had the pleasure to try both models at Anglesey Circuit while you have the pleasure to see which one is the winner.
