On the latest episode of Head to Head show, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman has some real consumer advice to deliver. Granted, it doesn’t concern 99 percent of the people. But if you are in the market for a deluxe, high-performance GT car, chances are you are torn between the 2016 Mercedes AMG GT and Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. This video can help you decide.
And if you are not shopping around for a $130K+ super GT, you can still enjoy the sights and sounds of these two extremely hot cars as the boys toss them around the race track and smoke some of their tires:
To recap, Mercedes AMG GT is powered a 4.0 liter bi-turbo engine developing 510 horsepower, sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. By comparison, the 5.5 liter supercharged V8 in the Jaguar F-Type R is a relic, but it makes more power at 550 horsepower. It also has an eight-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive which make things interesting.
