Let’s look at the top-of-the-line models: the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 and the Porsche 911 Turbo. The AMG boasts a larger engine, generating more torque. However, the Porsche, being lighter, has a better power-to-weight ratio. This translates to quicker acceleration and a higher top speed. 

Both cars are packed with cutting-edge technology to keep you in control. Features like active suspension, rear-locking differentials, and rear-axle steering work together to deliver exceptional handling, even if you push the limits a bit.

The Mercedes-AMG GT also comes in a less powerful version, the GT 55 4Matic+. It uses the same engine as the GT 63 but detuned to produce 476hp and 700 Nm of torque.
