MPG and Running Costs 

The AMG GT promises 30.4 mpg on the combined cycle, which is no doubt impressive for a car that produces in excess of 450bhp. This number drops to 30.1 mpg on the GT S

In reality, the figure is a bit lower. Like the current generation BMW M4, the MPG gains are to be had when driving sedately on the motorway, not really when pushing the car hard, where the turbocharging delivers performance more than anything.

Still, the days of wallet busting 6.2-litre V8 fuel consumption are no longer and what's perhaps even more impressive is that AMG has managed to improve the economy while delivering an engine that's almost as characterful.

The AMG GT S puts out 219g/km of CO2, which puts it in the same road tax bracket as a Jaguar F-Type R and crucially, most Porsche 911s.

A three year unlimited warranty along with service intervals of 12,500 miles or every 12 months, makes the AMG GT a fairly easy to live with ownership proposition.
