AMG GT and GT C ROADSTERS.
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 new GT Roadsters, the handcrafted AMG performance that’s born on the track has been unleashed into an open sky.
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.
Some things cannot be mass-produced.
To create perfection and then vouch for it, with one’s skill and one’s name — is a principle that’s lived and breathed at AMG. Every single AMG GT engine is hand-built by its own master craftsman. From the placement of the pistons to the recording of every torque spec, “One Man – One Engine” is a promise sealed by its creator’s signature on the plaque affixed atop each engine. Even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.
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.
Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8s place their twin turbos between their banks for quicker response. Dry sump design moves their oil supply aside, for lower engine mounting. In the 469-hp AMG GT, 100 km/h arrives in 3.9 seconds. In the 550-hp AMG GT C, just 3.7 seconds.******
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. The GT C adds active rear-axle steering and AMG RIDE CONTROL with 3-stage damping. 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. The thick 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 Panamericana 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, 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 fingertip touchpad and sleek yet sizable 8.4″ screen deliver entertainment, navigation and more with animated displays and intuitive menus. Another screen between the crisp analog gauges offers exclusive AMG readouts so you can keep an eye on 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, the new AMG Track Pace App can turn your Apple iPhone® into a virtual driving instructor. You can even pair in a GoPro® camera to analyze your skills, and share your results via AMG social media***.
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 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. A rear view camera, Parking Assist PARKTRONIC and Blind Spot Assist help smooth your moves from the driveway to the highway.*****

*** The AMG Track Pace App is compatible with Apple iPhone® models running iOS X.X or later. Apple and iPhone are trademarks or registered trademarks of Apple Inc. Requires a compatible GoPro camera. GoPro is a registered trademark of GoPro Inc.
*****Active Brake Assist may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
ATTENTION ASSIST may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
Blind Spot Assist is a warning system only, and may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions. Rearview camera does not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and is not a substitute for actively checking around the vehicle for any obstacles or people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of dirt, ice or snow on the camera.
