Mercedes finally pulled the wraps off the AMG GT Roadster version which will come in two models: the basic 469hp and the range-topping 547hp GT C.
Not long after the world premiere of the AMG GT R, the sports car and performance brand from Affalterbach presents two brand-new exhilarating roadster variants of the super sporty two-seater. Alongside the AMG GT Roadster, the AMG GT C Roadster expands the brand’s power portfolio.
With an output of 557 hp and peak torque of 680 Nm, 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 very 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 excellent traction. The variable performance exhaust system also ensures an authentic V8 sound from the AMG roadster.
The V8 biturbo-powered takes just 4.0 seconds to reach the 62mph from a standstill. The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster gets there even faster, thundering its way to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds. That’s more than enough for the cars to make it to Paris, in time for the motor show that starts by the end of September.
