The Porsche 911 remains the epitome of the everyday sort of sports car – and, depending on the trim, the everyday supercar as well – but the title of best German sports car is getting a serious challenge by the updated 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT. Now offered in four trim levels, from the GT, and GT C, through the GT R, and finally the track-focused GT R Pro, it’s the latter, most intense version of AMG’s fearsome coupe that should be giving Porsche some sleepless nights.
Four years in, and it’s time for a minor refresh. All model year 2020 Mercedes AMG GT cars now come with new LED headlights, similar to those fitted to the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door. It gives the sports car a more menacing and aggressive look. Combined with the new AMG Panamericana grille design introduced in the reworked 2018 AMG GT, the new car makes the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 look tame by comparison, which is no bad thing. The exterior changes continue at the back, with a new rear fascia, frosted tail-lights, and revised tailpipe designs.
