The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT and the Jaguar F-Type belong to a class of vehicles that offer the very most in performance and luxury, all in one package. They are big, comfortable, advanced, and fast beyond all reason. In fact, you could be going 160 miles per hour, but you wouldn't know it from the inside because of the high level of comfort and stability. Yes, they are both world-class sports cars, designed on the track and built for the street. Both have their advantages, but there are a few highlights that make the new Mercedes-Benz GT a better investment overall.
|4.0L V8 biturbo||Engine||5.0L Supercharged V8|
|456 HP||Horsepower||550 HP|
|443 lb-ft||Torque||502 lb-ft|
|3,560 lbs||Curb Weight||3,814 lbs|
The first major difference between the two is the engine. They both feature a V8 setup, but they use different methods to make power. The engine in the Jaguar is larger than the one in the GT, but it uses a supercharger. The GT engine features a biturbo "hot inside v" configuration with dry-sump lubrication. It is the only engine of its kind, made by Mercedes-Benz and AMG® to be the very best in the industry. It does not have as much power as the Jaguar F-Type R, but thanks to the lighter curb weight, both vehicles accelerate from 0-60 in exactly 3.9 seconds.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT is highly acclaimed for being a supercar that you can drive comfortably every day. Whether you are commuting to work or picking the kid up from school, the GT is a car you can feel at home in. It was named the best driver's car in 2016 by motor trend thanks to its perfect balance of weight and power, making it a great car for Sunday drivers and race car drivers alike.
