Mercedes AMG GT Roadster

Mercedes is not a company to rest on its laurels.  No sooner did they introduce the Mercedes GT R at the Brooklands racing circuit and the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex than they dropped two more top of the line Roadsters on the racing world.

Both the AMG GT ($TBA) and the GT C have the same 4.0 liter V8 engine.  Yet, while the GT produces 476 hp & 465 lb-ft torque, the GT C boosts that by 81hp & 37 lb-ft, to hit 0-60 mph in a mere 3.7 seconds.  Top speeds have been recorded at 188 mph for the GT & 196 mph for the GT C.

Among the built for speed features on the GT C are the electrically controlled differential in back rather than the mechanical unit on the GT and the rear wheel steering system which offers a long wheelbase stability to this shorter vehicle.

The cockpit is still all you would expect from Mercedes-AMG; plenty of rich leather, a high center control panel with buttons for almost everything, and deep temperature controlled bucket seats.
