New Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Looks Right At Home In LA

Revealed earlier this year at the Paris Auto Show, the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster is one of the brand’s many models that are making their North American premiere at the 2016 LA Auto Show.

The open-top, high-performance Merc features a fabric roof, which opens or closes at the touch of a button in 11 seconds. It’s operable at speeds of up to 32 mph (50 km/h) and comes in three color choices: black, red and beige.

The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster was developed as the range-topping member of the AMG GT convertible family, and benefits from some of the features found on the hardcore AMG GT R, such as the electronic locking differential and rear axle steering.

Propelling it from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and up to a 196 mph (316 km/h) top speed is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine, which, in this application, is good for 550 HP and 502 lb-ft (681 Nm) of torque.
