So, does this replace or supplement SLS AMG?

This is a 911 competitor and prices will start in the mid 200k range.

There's a bit of a brand/model mix here, where's the SL now ? Gone too ?

SL remains the boulevard cruiser
GT is the most focused car AMG have done apparently. 911 is the target.

I think the exterior looks ok, except for the square on rear view, it just looks too plain.  Also the centre console is just too big and "busy".  I am interested to see how it performs and at what price.

Needs more than two seats if it really is to be a rival to the 911. Like I said, missed the mark IMO.

How much?

$260 to $310k is the rumour...

It also needs the engine out the back. Whatever else it is, it isn't a substitute for a 911. That doesn't stop it from being a desirable car but it needs to be priced right to succeed against the world's best sportscar.
