“… a highly dynamic driving experience in a very exclusive ambience, coupled with that pure roadster feeling.”Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes‑AMG GmbH
The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster enhances the GT lineup with a completely new model variant. With an output of 557 hp and peak torque of 502 lb-ft, the AMG GT C is the most powerful new Roadster variant and uses some of the technical refinements of the AMG GT R. These include active rear axle steering and the electronically controlled rear axle locking differential. In combination with the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, the AMG GT C Roadster guarantees dynamic performance at the highest level. The top Roadster also takes its lead from the top AMG GT R sports car where muscular proportions are concerned: the wider rear wings create space for a wider track and wider wheels at the rear axle, allowing even higher cornering speeds and best traction. The variable performance exhaust system also ensures an authentic V8 sound from the AMG Roadster.
With the two Roadster variants, the Mercedes‑AMG GT family has now increased to five members. The two new sports cars with fabric soft tops have the technical genes for which AMG is famous. These include the lightweight and torsionally rigid aluminium bodyshell plus powerful and efficient V8 biturbo engines. The entry level into the Roadster world is the AMG GT with an output of 476 hp. The GT C Roadster adds a completely new output level. With 557 hp it is the more powerful of the two new open-top sports cars.
