I'm starting to like the GT43 better than other versions of the GT-Class. Why? It still retains all that suspension and sexy chassis while not necessarily being the best option to exceed speed limits. Still a showoff kinda car in either trim, but the GT43 is basically a CLS450 with a nicer body and better brakes and tires.

Unfortunately, either of these versions is more expensive than the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. But to be fair, the Charger is NOT its direct rival (the Charger rivals the E- and CLS-Class sedans in the name of its cousin, Ghibli). The true competitors of the GT-Class are Porsche's Panamera and BMW's 8 Series Gran Coupe, whereas the CLS rivals the Audi A7 (although BMW no longer offers an entry competing in such segment).

This is literally the worst AMG in history. Entry-level AMG versions of the A-, B-, C-Class and other lower-class sedans, hatches and even crossovers beat the GT43. THANK GOD it is not sold in the US. Besides you can get yourself a mechanically identical CLS450 which packs the same exact performance (if not better).

Nonsens - the CLS 450 and most AMG A- or C-Class (there is no AMG B-Class) are limited at 250 km/h, the GT 43 at 270 km/h

Top speed does not mean fast — for the most part. If we use that logic then an AMG E53 is slower. Technically a Bentley Flying Spur W12 is faster than an Aston Martin Vulcan.
