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.


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

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, 60 mph arrives in 3.9 seconds. In the 550-hp AMG GT C, just 3.6 seconds.

Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer's track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.

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 standard AMG DYNAMIC PLUS 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 the GT's ideal 47:53 front/rear balance. A carbon-fiber driveshaft links it to the front-mid-mounted V8. Lightning-quick shifts, a limited-slip differential and torque vectoring precisely deliver power to pavement.


DESIGN

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 31 mph. A fixed mesh wind deflector helps keep the open cabin calm.


INNOVATION

Engineered for less weight, and less waiting

From its aluminum spaceframe to its polymer/carbon-fiber decklid, the AMG GT 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 apps 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, available AIRSCARF® can envelop your neck and shoulders in warmed air, turning a cool evening into the perfect time for an open-air drive.

An intelligent mix of materials

The GT'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 fiber and advanced polymers.
