For £1,795, you can have your AMG GT with the Dynamic Plus package. Have it. Not because of the dynamic engine and transmission mounts or the ‘specifically tuned’ suspension that’s included, but because it comes with an Alcantara (OK, Dinamica microfibre) steering wheel. Just the thing for soaking up those sweaty-palm moments. Which, as you might already have gathered, the GT is pretty adept at delivering.
It did so in the Pennines, and now it’s pretty busy doing so in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Sometimes you just wish the AMG GT would settle down a bit, stop being so fractious.
Maybe it’s upset by our reception committee, or maybe by the fact it’s not leading right now (you get the impression that the GT likes to be in charge and gets grumpy when it isn’t). Instead it’s at the back of the line, forced to stare at the plump, rounded haunches of the 911 Turbo up front and skinny little tyres of the wingleted i8.
