On paper, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door makes sense. There are probably plenty of folks who love the AMG GT coupe?s looks and performance, but need something with cargo space for long trips or to be able to ferry around friends and family. Now having driven it, we're left in awe of its performance as well as its surprising practicality. But we're also confused, because it feels so hardcore that it?s not a great long-hauler or daily driver ? isn't that the point of having four doors in the first place? Under the hood is AMG?s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 tuned all the way up to 630 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. It?s actually far more powerful than the AMG GT R coupe, the presumed top GT model, which produces merely 577 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Of course, the four-door is substantially heavier, negating some of that advantage, but its all-wheel-drive system nevertheless makes such a substantial leap in torque possible. Not to mention fruitful, as it helps the GT 63 S hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds ? 0.4 quicker than the GT R.
