Mercedes unveils AMG GT and GT C Roadster ahead of Paris Motor Show debut

Mercedes unveils AMG GT and GT C Roadster ahead of Paris Motor Show debut

Shortly after the debut of the hardcore AMG GT R, Mercedes has now unveiled two roadster versions of the two-seater sports car. Developing 557bhp and peak torque of 680Nm, the AMG GT C (one of the two versions) is the most powerful Roadster from Mercedes and uses some of the technical refinements of the AMG GT R.

Both the GT and GT C Roadster versions are powered by Merc’s latest V8 biturbo engines. The base AMG GT produces 476bhp while the more powerful GT C brings in 557bhp to the table. Both vehicles use weight-optimised fabric soft tops which open and close in around 11 seconds at speeds of up to 50kmph. The three-layered fabric soft top is supported by a magnesium/steel/aluminium structure, which helps to keep the centre of gravity low. Additional rollover protection is courtesy of an integrated aluminium cross-member with rollover bars. 

At 557bhp, the peak output is 47bhp above that of the AMG GT S and 28bhp below the AMG GT R. A sprint from 0-100kmph is dealt with in 3.7 seconds and the top speed is rated at 316kmph. The base AMG GT Roadster, meanwhile, has 476bhp and 630Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 4 seconds and hit a top speed of 302kmph.

These Roadster versions include a lot of clever tech from the GTR. This includes active rear axle steering and the electronically controlled rear axle locking differential. The cars also get AMG Ride Control sport suspension. 

Mercedes will unveil the AMG GT and GT C Roadster in all their glory at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. With these two convertible versions, the Mercedes-AMG GT family has now increased to a five model line-up.
