More About This episode

The oldest automotive company in the world is about to put out its newest speedster with one goal in mind: to unseat the definitive sports car, the Porsche 911. Enter the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant, a massive facility roughly the size of Vatican City, where a uniquely dedicated team of craftspeople are designing and building a lighter, faster, and smaller Mercedes from the ground up: the AMG GT. It's a five-year journey, from one man's idea to a 500-horsepower supercar, and we're there to capture all the high-speed drama.
