Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster
AMG GT C ROADSTER
If the Mercedes-AMG GT is a reinvention of the pure sports car, there's only one way to make it even purer: Open it up. With the GT C Roadster, the handcrafted AMG performance that's born on the track has been unleashed into an open sky.
A race that knows no finish line.
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.
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.
Compresses the air, to blow you away
A front-mid-mounted, 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. Disclaimer
Clings to pavement, touches the sky
Forged aluminum dominates the 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension. Coil-overs at the rear are hub-mounted for extreme precision. Active rear-axle steering and AMG RIDE CONTROL with 3-stage damping help tame corners. AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in the throttle, shifting, chassis, exhaust and more.
Tuned to your desires, sharpens on demand
The AMG GT C's available AMG Track Package flexes its muscle freely. Dynamic engine and transaxle mounts use electromagnetic fluid that stiffens progressively, to keep handling precise during aggressive moves. And the steering wheel is fully wrapped in grippy DINAMICA microsuede.
Balanced on every axis, in every action
The 7-speed, multimode AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT transaxle is rear-mounted, to help create an ideal 46:54 front/rear balance. A carbon-fibre driveshaft links it to the front-mid-mounted V8. Lightning-quick shifts, a limited-slip differential and torque vectoring precisely send power to pavement.
Sculpted to harness the wind
Top up or down, the long-hood proportions express the purity of a roadster with a clarity of purpose. From the vertical-bar grille to an active rear spoiler, airflow under, over and into the body is managed with strategic brilliance. Every element contributes to performance, and conspires to seduce.
Tailored to transform and transcend
It takes just 11 seconds to change the AMG GT from a closed, composed coupe into an all-out open-air super sports car. Tailored from three layers and available in three colors, the soft top powers up or down even at speeds up to 50 km/h. A see-through wind deflector helps keep the open cabin calm.
Equipped to embrace driving
Sculpted AMG Performance seats combine sporting support with enduring comfort. Performance controls fall readily to hand, with colour diplay buttons arrayed in a V on the wide console. A spectrum of cabin appointments, wheel choices, paint hues and styling packages let you make a powerful personal statement.
Engineered for less weight, and less waiting
From its aluminum spaceframe to its polymer/carbon-fibre decklid, the AMG GT C Roadster is built to maximize performance by minimizing mass. Its onboard technology responds accordingly, from quick-thinking controls for the running gear to advanced cabin tech that keeps you connected and in control.
Responds at a touch, reveals at a glance
A console controller and 10.25-inch central screen deliver entertainment, navigation and apps with animated displays and intuitive menus. The new 12.3-inch digital instruments offer multiple gauge designs and exclusive AMG readouts of turbo boost, oil temperature, speed and gear selection.
Shifts the seasons
With a sonorous exhaust note you can unleash at the touch of a button, you're going to want to drive top-down as often as possible. Along with heated seats, standard AIRSCARF can envelop your neck and shoulders in warmed air, turning a cool evening into the perfect time for an open-air drive.
A virtual trainer in your pocket
Using performance driving data from your car, AMG Track Pace can turn your car's central screen into a virtual driving instructor. Its ability to store and display key performance data during track driving helps you analyze your skills and hone them even sharper. Disclaimer
An intelligent mix of materials
The car's spaceframe achieves high torsional and longitudinal rigidity with exceptionally low weight. Engineered from the outset as a roadster, there's no weight penalty over the GT C coupe. Aluminum makes up 98% of the body and frame by weight, along with magnesium, carbon fibre and advanced polymers.
A protective, proactive eye on the future
Radar-based Active Brake Assist can help you avoid some frontal collisions, and can even initiate braking. ATTENTION ASSIST can help sense a drowsy driver. Front and rearview cameras, PARKTRONIC, and Blind Spot Assist, all standard, help smooth your moves from the driveway to the highway. Disclaimer
