0-60 mph Time
Every Prancing Horse is a world-class supercar, and one of the most prominent examples is the Ferrari Portofino — but it’s far from the only performer on the road or track. The Mercedes AMG GT C is no slouch in terms of performance, design, or amenities, making a Ferrari Portofino vs. Mercedes-Benz GT Convertible comparison a natural consideration.
The Mercedes AMG GT Convertible offers admirable performance courtesy of a handcrafted 4.0L V8 engine that produces 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. The result is the ability to reach a top speed of 197 mph and go from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Not bad at all!
While the AMG GT C offers strong numbers, it’s outdone across the board by the Portofino. The Portofino’s 3.9L V8 Twin-Turbo engine is also lovingly crafted by hand, but outdoes the AMG GT Convertible by producing 591 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. The result of that increased power is also increased speed: the Portofino has a top speed of 200 mph, and can jump from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz comes close here, but only close — which car performs better on the track is obvious from the numbers.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C and Ferrari Portofino both feature attractive exteriors that were engineered with aerodynamic efficiency in mind. Both feature active rear spoilers, and both feature roofs that can be retracted at low speeds. There are a few subtle details that set the Portofino apart from its rival when you consider its design, though:
The Ferrari Portofino and Mercedes-Benz AMG are both luxury vehicles, even while keeping their focus on the track. In terms of multimedia amenities, they’re evenly matched. Both offer Apple CarPlay, and both offer premium audio systems (a JBL setup for the Portofino, and a Burmester setup for the GT C).
The Portofino, however, offers superior interior features where it counts. For starters, the Portofino seats four while the AMG GT only seats two — not only can you driving a higher-performing car with the Ferrari, but you can share it with more people, too. As a practical matter, it also edges out the Mercedes in terms of usable cargo space, with 10.3 cubic feet vs. the AMG GT C’s 10.1 cubic feet.
The Portofino is a world-class performer even among other supercars, and it shows when you compare it to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. It’s only reasonable for any enthusiast to seek to buy a Ferrari, and you can do just that when you contact Continental AutoSports, whether you’re based in St. Louis or Indianapolis. Our home is the Chicago area, but we’re happy to facilitate the purchase of Ferrari vehicles with buyers across the United States.
