MER­CEDES-AMG GT C

L'APPART - - Mercedes-Amg -

The new mo­dels are iden­ti­fiable by the dis­tinc­tive AMG Pa­na­me­ri­ca­na grille, which is now sha­red by all AMG GT mo­dels. Un­der­li­ning the mo­tor sport he­ri­tage, the grille fea­tures 15 chrome-pla­ted, ver­ti­cal bars, which echo the look of the la­test Mer­cedes AMG GT3 cus­to­mer sport ra­cing car. The new front apron em­pha­sises the car's width, ma­king it sit flat­ter on the road. The large ou­ter air in­lets gua­ran­tee the sup­ply of co­oling air to the en­gine. In com­mon with the AMG GT S and AMG GT R, the AMG GT C comes as stan­dard with an elec­tro­ni­cal­ly control­led rear-axle li­mi­ted-slip dif­fe­ren­tial, which is in­te­gra­ted in­to the com­pact trans­mis­sion hou­sing. Its sen­si­tive and fast con­trol raises the cri­ti­cal li­mit of ve­hicle dy­na­mics to a new le­vel. It not on­ly fur­ther im­proves the trac­tion of the drive wheels, but al­so in­creases the cri­ti­cal cor­ne­ring speed. The new AMG GT C will launch as an ex­clu­sive spe­cial Edi­tion 50 mo­del to mark the land­mark year of the com­pa­ny, which was foun­ded in 1967 and will ce­le­brate its 50th an­ni­ver­sa­ry in 2017. The Edi­tion 50 will be avai­lable in two ex­clu­sive spe­cial paint fi­nishes: de­si­gno gra­phite grey ma­gno and de­si­gno cash­mere white ma­gno. To give the ex­te­rior a dis­tinc­tive look, black chrome high­lights are ap­plied to the side skirt trim, the front split­ter, the trim strips in the air in­lets of the Pa­na­me­ri­ca­na grille, the fins on the side air out­lets in the front wings, the moul­ding on the rear dif­fu­ser and the ex­haust tail­pipe trims. The sur­face of the cross-spoke AMG for­ged wheels has been har­mo­ni­sed with the black chrome ele­ments of the ex­te­rior. The in­ter­ior is mar­ked by a contrast bet­ween black and sil­ver. This co­lour scheme is fol­lo­wed not on­ly by the trim in STYLE ex­clu­sive nap­pa lea­ther in sil­ver pearl/black with grey dia­mond-pat­ter­ned contras­ting tops­tit­ching, but al­so by the black AMG Per­for­mance stee­ring wheel in DINAMICA mi­cro­fibre with grey contras­ting tops­tit­ching, "Edi­tion" let­te­ring on the stee­ring wheel be­zel and 12 o'clock mark in sil­ver pearl. To em­pha­sise the spor­ty cha­rac­ter, the Edi­tion 50 comes as stan­dard with the AMG In­ter­ior Night pa­ckage, which in­cludes such fea­tures as stee­ring wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill pa­nels in black. The in­ter­play bet­ween light and dark is fur­ther ac­cen­tua­ted by sil­ver seat belts and black chrome trim. The head re­straint of the AMG Per­for­mance seat is em­bos­sed with "GT Edi­tion 50". In ad­di­tion to a tech­ni­cal up­grade cour­te­sy of ac­tive ae­ro­dy­na­mics, hi­gher out­put/torque and ac­tive rear-axle stee­ring, the up­date of the AMG GT mo­del fa­mi­ly al­so in­cludes si­gni­fi­cant ad­di­tions to the scope of equip­ment. A host of new op­tio­nal ex­tras will be avai­lable in fu­ture. The new equip­ment pa­ckages in­clude the AMG Ex­te­rior Chrome pa­ckage with trim in high-gloss chrome and the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS pa­ckage, which is now al­so avai­lable for the AMG GT.
