Can the Merc GT stick it to the Porsche 911?
Merc has ditched its bellowing SLS supercar after just four years, and will soon reveal its 911-rivalling sports car, codenamed ‘C190' and likely badged GT. On paper, it's a fruity proposition: the front-engined GT is expected to boast a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 making close to 500bhp and driving the rear wheels.
Which sounds very promising. But, with the GT expected to weigh in around £100k or a little more, competition is fierce: there's the 911 GT3 and Turbo, Audi's R8, the new Jag F-Type Coupe, and BMW's game-changing i8. Get ready for war.
