Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Just Looks Mega In The Flesh

Mercedes finally showed the drop-top AMG GT C Roadster at the French capital, revealing its sexy figure for the first time in public.

The AMG GT Roadster will come in two flavors, the ‘base’ GT model with 469hp and the more hardcore GT C version packing a healthier 547hp figure. The latter will also share some of the components introduced in the fire-breathing GT R Coupe model, just to make it even spicier, including its rear-axle steering, electronic locking differential, the active air management and a wider rear track.

The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission has been updated with a higher first and a lower seventh gear and lower final ratio in order to make it more responsive, while there is also a new mode called ‘Race’. This will tune the gearbox for track use, stirring cogs faster and producing a more racecar-like soundtrack. The new AMG GT C Roadster is capable of a 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 3.7 seconds and will not stop until it hits 196mph (316km/h). The base GT Roadster scores 4 seconds and 187mph in the same areas of interest.

The soft top can open or close in just 11 seconds up to speeds of 32 mph (50 km/h) and is available in three different colors, namely black, red and beige.

Earlier today, a report surfaced saying that Mercedes confirmed that they will build a fixed-roof version of the GT C Roadster to bridge the gap between the GT S Coupe and the GT R – which, in our book, is a very good idea indeed.
