With an alleged 744 PS (734 hp / 547 kW) available on tap from the tuned twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine, few cars can hold their ground against this Mercedes-AMG GT S.
Unfortunately, a few days ago, the person sitting behind the wheel had an extremely bad day while drag racing a BMW M3 in Germany.
With the traction control likely turned off, the driver of the German supercar pushed the throttle all the way down after hitting the 50 km/h (31 mph) mark. However, the Merc oversteered suddenly and its driver couldn’t catch it.
It was the M3 driver’s quick reaction that saved him from T-boning the tuned Mercedes-AMG GT S. As for the latter, it went across the drag strip and hit a fence, the only obstacle (apart from the BMW) that’s visible from the footage, before coming to a full stop.
Despite sending part of the fence up in the air, the impact didn’t leave many scars on the front end of the AMG GT S. Still, this is a model that starts at €136,855.95 (equal to $156,251) in Germany, in the latest iteration, so repairs are, in all likelihood, going to be costly.
