In September last year, Mercedes announced the arrival of the roadster version of the AMG GT. Both the GT Roadster (476 hp) and GT C Roadster (557 hp) received looks in line with the AMG GT R. It’s no surprice that AMG is extending the updated looks as well on the coupé versions. The facelift for the coupé brings next to the GT (476 hp compared to 462 hp previously) and the GT S (522 hp compared to 510 hp previously) a new GT C. The GT C is positioned between the AMG GT S and the AMG GT R and has in line wih the GT C Roadster 557 hp. The AMG GT C is 57 mm wider than the GT or GT S and has the rear-axle limited-slip differential from the GT S and GT R, and the active rear-axle steering from the GT R. The facelift of the coupé brings overall enhanced driving dynamics and a wider choice of individual equipments.
As AMG is celebrating its 50 years of existence, the AMG GT C Coupé will be only available from the start as special “Edition 50”. The Edition 50 will be available in two paint finishes: designo graphite grey magno and designo cashmere white magno. Other visual characteristics of the GT C Edition 50 are black chrome highlights applied to the side skirt trim, the front splitter, the trim strips in the air inlets, the fins on the side air outlets in the front wings, the moulding on the rear diffuser and the exhaust tailpipe trims.
