Making $100,000 for a car seem cheap:
Pricing for the highly anticipated and much ballyhooed Mercedes-AMG GT S sports coupe appears to have been leaked, and here’s how not-cheap it is: According to our friends at Jalopnik, a tipster has shared a memo from Mercedes-Benz stating that the 503-hp GT S will start at $129,900. No mention if that includes the destination and delivery charge, but we imagine that will be extra. The MSRP, however, does include Nappa leather, collision prevention, keyless entry and starting, and a Burmester sound system.
Once destination and delivery are added, the GT S’s base price will very nearly match the 475-hp Porsche 911 GT3’s $131,395 sticker—coincidence? hmmm—while being way cheaper than the 525-hp Audi R8 V-10 Coupe’s $155,450 sticker. On the other hand, it is considerably higher than the 550-hp Jaguar F-Type R, which may not carry the prestige of the three-pointed star but seems like a damn bargain now at just $99,925. Plus there’s the options, which are likely to carry the new AMG to $150K or more.
I'll take the F-type-R anyday over the Mercedes!
Seems like a damn bargain now!
