The Panamera was a bit of a revelation. Who knew the rich really wanted a car with questionable styling but sports carlike handling?

On paper, the Mercedes-Amg GT 4-Door doesn’t much make sense given that Mercedes has no shortage of fast 4-door super saloons. There are AmG variants of the E-Class and CLS. It makes even less sense when you consider that the less powerful AmG GT 53 4-Door that is reviewed here costs nearly 150 grand more than the equivalent AmG e 53 and 100 grand more than the equivalent AmG CLS 53.

But that’s on paper. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding and it is after spending some time with the AmG GT 53 4-Door that I appreciated its capabilities. I have to start by saying that I think it looks great. While the Panamera attempts to hide its mass with considered lines and curves, the AmG GT 4-Door proudly thumps its chest and embraces its burliness. Its bonnet is long and features two conspicuous “powerdomes”, its grille is huge and equally conspicuous, and the swollen wheel arches and huge wheels hint at prodigious power.

It’s large too, at just over 5 metres long and nearly 2 metres wide. If you opt for the same metallic blue paint as our test car, no one can say they didn’t see you hurtling down the road.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
