This week we drove the Mercedes-AMG GT C, in open-top Roadster form. While we’re yet to sample the ballistic GT R, we feel the GT C is probably the sweet spot in AMG’s GT sports car range. It’s a seriously impressive machine. Porsche should be worried.

Another AMG in the headlines this week is the GLC63. There’s both the standard GLC63 and more dynamically styled GLC63 Coupe, and regardless of which you get there’s a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood. It’s a breath of fresh air in an age of engine downsizing and emissions regs.

Audi’s newest A5 is impressive in standard guise, but it really comes alive in S5 form. Under the hood is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that dishes up 354 horsepower, though sadly it can only be had with an automatic transmission. In case you find living with a coupe too hard to bear, the same mechanical package is available in an S4 sedan.

Just before Dodge gives the world the Demon, Hennessey Performance has given us The Exorcist: a 1,000-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that’s surely worthy of the fantastic name.
