The Challenge

Less than one month after the unveiling of the new AMG GT at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Visualise was given the opportunity to take car enthusiasts for a hot lap around Laguna Seca race track. Considered by many to be a direct competitor to the popular 911 Turbo, Visualise competed with journalists to get their hands on the car for its first press event.
