Chris Harris gets behind the steering wheel of the Mercedes-AMG GT to test it out.

Chris Harris, a popular figure in /Drive, recently went solo with his own YouTube channel. Among his latest reviews involved the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car, which we will be sharing to you here.

There is a lot of expectations with the Mercedes-AMG GT since it is the one that replaced the Mercedes SLS AMG GT. There is also the hype that it is the answer of the three-pointed star marque to the Porsche 911.

Like what Harris pointed out, if you tell everyone that you got the car that would take on the Porsche 911, you are certain to get raised eyebrows from auto enthusiasts. So, to answer whether the Mercedes-AMG GT really has what it takes to take on the flagship car of its German rival, the auto journalist takes the latest sports car entirely made by Mercedes-AMG for a spin.

You can witness a lot of excitement as Harris takes the Mercedes-AMG GT for a spin at the Laguna Seca track. Despite coming off the AMG sports car undecided whether it is better than the 911 or not, the automotive journalist said that there is a lot to be desired about it.

Harris stated that among the things he loved about the car was its appealing character, which is unique from its rival. He praised the architecture, aggressiveness, driving pleasure, and handing of the auto as well while navigating the race track.
