Chris Harris refers to the Mercedes AMG GT Black Series as having ‘Mansory looks'
Does he have a point?
After not being invited to the press launch of the brand new Mercedes AMG GT Black Series, Chris Harris shares his thoughts on the new car over on Twitter and he doesn't care what others think.
Harris has never been shy of sharing his true feelings and thoughts over certain cars and as a journalist that's his job and he should be respected for that. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and these are his on Mercedes' latest track-focussed monster.
Chris refers to the new AMG GT Black Series as having 'Mansory looks and a silly pricetag' and he is right to an extent. I suppose the new Black Series does appear rather theatrical in the way it looks and it is priced astronomically high at £355,000 - which is a lot for a Mercedes but in order to compete with the big boys from other manufacturers, it had to look like this and cost this much, I suppose.
So yes, there is method to his madness but I wouldn't say AMG is 'rudderless'. A lot of manufacturers are heading in this direction and I guess it's just one of the ways to stay afloat in uncertain times like these.
