Ultimate performance is a common topic of discussion at Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar alike. Both companies want to be the best and they use the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S and 2016 Jaguar F-Type SVR to represent themselves in the highest level of automotive competition. If you are in the market for a super car, whether it be your first or your last, it is easy to get caught up in large numbers and fast phrases like dual clutch and launch control but it's what you don't see that makes a car what it is.
The GT S and the Jaguar F-Type are bred from the same desire to go fast. They have much in common on the outside, from the total ride height to the less than three inch difference in body length. Their wheelbases are almost identical and they both will get you to 60 miles per hour in less than 4 seconds. These congruencies are often enough for drivers to assume the two supercars are identical, but it couldn't be further from the truth.
One of the things that makes the GT S a Mercedes-AMG is the attention to detail to the performance aspects of the car. Instead of just focusing on more power and a faster quarter mile time, which many supercars fall victim to, the GT S actually has a track focus that has led to less horsepower and better balance over the last few years. Its coefficient of drag is one of the best in the industries and its unique features bring the power to weight ratio closer to 1/1 than any other car in the industry. This is accomplished by use of a Hot Inside V biturbo V8 engine and a transmission placed behind the driver. We won't lie to you and say that the GT S is faster in a straight line than the F-Type, but we are confident that at any skill level, you will be able to get the GT S around a track much faster than the Jaguar F-Type.
