Learn About AMG® Performance

The release of the 2018 Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster is right around the corner, and early talk hints at the kind of high-octane performance we can expect to see from this luxury sports convertible. The new GT C Roadster takes everything enthusiasts already love about the current Mercedes-AMG® GT Roadster and brings it to a new level of performance with special engine, transmission, and drivetrain upgrades that will leave your heart pounding. See what we know so far before the GT C Roadster zooms its way onto the lot at Mercedes-Benz Kitchener-Waterloo.

Hand-Crafted AMG® Engine & SPEEDSHIFT Transmission

Like the current Mercedes-AMG® GT Roadster, the new GT C Roadster variant comes standard with a full suite of AMG®-based performance technologies, beginning with a hand-crafted bi-turbo 4.0L V8 engine and a seven-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT DCT dual-clutch transmission. The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT C then goes on to exceed all expectations, delivering a total output of 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels, allowing this convertible to reach a top speed of 196 mph. The SPEEDSHIFT transmission comes specially tuned for the bump in output, with a higher first gear ratio and a special “RACE” mode.

AMG® RIDE CONTROL Suspension

The increased focus on performance doesn’t stop with the powertrain either! The GT Roadster already boasts a first-rate AMG® Sport Suspension, which features a double wishbone and forged aluminum steering knuckles and hub carriers for maximum performance. The new Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster comes with an AMG® RIDE CONTROL feature, which includes an electronically controlled and continuously variable adaptive damping system.
