The AMG® GT Roadster offers the thrill of the AMG® GT Coupe without the hassle of a roof getting in your way everywhere you go. The Roadster is an important part of Mercedes-Benz culture, and the GT is the face of performance within the brand. When you bring these two identities together, you get a driving experience like none other around the world.
The letter "C" in the GT C name implies the car is less aggressive or more affordable than the GT Coupe, but this is not the case with the GC Roadster. Like the coupe, the roadster uses a 4.0L, biturbo V8 with dry-sump lubrication and a "Hot Inside V" turbo configuration. The surprise is that the GT C actually comes with almost 100 more horsepower than the coupe.
The GT C Roadster features 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, allowing for a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 196 miles per hour.
With a wider back end and smooth roadster curvature, the GT C has a unique look that serves a functional purpose.
Borrowed from the GT R, the GT C Roadster uses an active air-management system that opens and closes louvres in the grille for optimal air-flow.
The AMG® GT is one of the few supercars that can driven everyday without sacrificing comfort. The GT C raises the bar even further with extra features you wouldn't expect to find in a luxury sports car. For starters, the AMG® Performance seats provide class-leading lateral support while also being available with AIRSCARF®, which is a neck heating system, essential to comfort in a roadster when the outside temperature drops.
Another advanced luxury feature in the GT C is the Burmester® Sound System. This stereo offers the first Externed Coupled Subwoofer (ECS) in the industry, which connects the subwoofer to the actual frame of the car, turning the entire car into a subwoofer.
