AMG: Driving performance for 50 years

In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Coupe Performance

Born to perform, developed to outperform

A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. Developed for AMG's racecars, patented NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls cut friction, raising endurance and power.

Seamless thrust, seemingly endless

A handcrafted AMG 4.0L "dry sump" V8 unleashes a torque-rich growl. Twin turbos mounted inside the "hot V" force-feed massive boost to each Direct Injected cylinder, to thrust the 550-hp AMG GT C to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. [1]

Adheres to racing principles, and to every curve and contour

The 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension employs highly rigid, lightweight forged aluminum components. Rear coil-overs are direct-mounted to the hub carriers. Three-stage AMG RIDE CONTROL adapts to road, track and driver. And multimode AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in key performance parameters.

Progressive ideas, aggressive results

The available AMG Track Package hones the AMG GT C to an even sharper edge. Using electromagnetic fluid, dynamic engine and transaxle mounts progressively stiffen to keep handling precise. Power peaks over a wider rev-range in the Manual and Race modes. And the chassis is tuned to a more aggressive profile.

Ideal balance, instant response

Helping create an ideal 46:54 front/rear balance, a rigid carbon-fibre driveshaft links the V8 and rear-mounted 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT transaxle. With selectable modes and rev-matching, it's alarmingly quick yet astoundingly seamless. The limited-slip differential employs precise electronic control.

Hand, eye and car coordination

A mode for every driving mood

A twist of the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT knob fine-tunes the car's character. Each mode adapts the throttle maps, gear changes and more from Comfort to Sport+ to RACE, plus an Individual mode you set up for yourself. Key systems like the adaptive suspension and dynamic exhaust also offer separate controls.

An intelligent mix of materials

A high-strength, lightweight core is the key to impeccable performance. The GT spaceframe tips the scales at just 235 kg, yet leads its class in torsional and longitudinal rigidity. Cast, extruded and stamped aluminum composes 97% of its weight, with magnesium and advanced polymers among the remainder.
