Our old friend devaluation is helping out once again, with a very tidy AMG GT S spotted available cash than a new Cayman GTS, and complete with thunderous 4. 0-litre V8
Succumb to the delights of depreciation-based fantasy is one of any kind of car enthusiast’s favourite hobbies. Browsing the classifieds meant for bargain AMGs following the show of the 600bhp+ hybrid drivetrain destined for the following C ‘73’, we discovered an absolute corker: an AMG GT S for less than the money pot needed for a showroom-fresh Porsche Cayman GTS .
You’ll require £65, 390 to handbag a zero-mile Cayman GTS in the UK right now, but have a look at this: a Diamond White Mercedes-AMG GT S from 2016 with just below 30, 000 miles in order to speak of and whole couple of expensive options. The price of £55, 990 left us dropped for words. Briefly.
What you have, aside from nearly £10, 000 inside your back pocket for V-Power and rear tyres, is really a 193mph super-coupe that will strike 62mph in the kisser through rest in 3. 7 seconds courtesy of a bi-turbocharged 503bhp 4. 0-litre OF V8. This was the engine that will replaced the irreplaceable six. 2-litre naturally-aspirated legend plus did a surprisingly persuading job of it.
Although we don’t understand quite what form the following AMG GT’s drivetrain will require, owing to difficulties in mating the setup to a transaxle gearbox layout, we’re certain the four-litre will reside long and fondly within the memory.
On this car there’s adaptive and adjustable AMG Trip Control sports suspension, the particular always-impressive AMG Speedshift seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a good electronically-controlled rear differential with regard to typically AMG-ish slides upon demand. The rest is, to some degree, superfluous, but rest assured there are plenty of, many bells and an incredibly large assortment of whistles.
The mixed-size Titanium Grey alloys hide 390mm and 360mm rotors front side and rear, drilled to get ventilation and with red-painted disc brake calipes. Excellent Continental SportContact six tyres will keep you grown unless you absolutely insist upon sideways playtime. Inside you will find the Night Package, the particular Memory Package, the set panoramic glass sunroof, the particular COMAND sat-nav, a rearview camera and heated front chairs. Don’t forget the wonderfully foolish button-activated sports exhaust.
For sale on Parker Prestige in Northern Yorkshire, not far from several of England’s finest driving streets, this is possibly the absolute best method to buy a £56, 000 two plus two sports car with a stunning specification sheet and relatively humble looks that isn’t the Porsche. Plus it has a darned fine V8 and a really naughty streak. There’s absolutely nothing here not to love with this price unless it’s the particular rather bold black plus red interior. If you simply happen to win a £56, 000 bet and only have got room to keep one vehicle, let’s assume we know exactly what you’re going to do.
