Mercedes-AMG GT S wins Best Driver’s Car award

U.S. car magazine Motor Trend has awarded the Mercedes-AMG GT S as its Best Driver’s Car for 2015.

In this year’s contest, the Mercedes-AMG GT S lined up against nine other sports cars at the Laguna Seca race track in California – where it achieved the best lap time of 1:35.57 minutes,

The Mercedes-AMG GT S not only kept all its competitors at bay at the Laguna Seca race track, but it also achieved one of the top three times yet recorded.

“The Mercedes-AMG GT S has the sharpest, most precise steering we have ever felt on any Mercedes or AMG vehicle,” says Motor Trend editor-in-chief Ed Loh.

“It makes massive power from a compact, high-tech turbocharged V8 engine. What most impressed my team is how well the GT S was able to combine these elements,” he says.

“It put all of its horsepower to the ground like an all-wheel-drive supercar and gripped the road through high-speed corners like a winged racer,” says Loh.

Motor Trend launched its Best Driver’s Car award in 2009, and this has since become one of the most prestigious contests in American automotive media.
