More power, less roof

Wheels (Australia) - - Red Line -

Mercedes-benz has ex­panded its AMG GT fam­ily with an open-top Road­ster (left) and a GT C vari­ant with a higher out­put ver­sion of the 4.0litre twin-turbo V8. AMG boss To­bias Mo­ers told

Wheels the GT C is about blend­ing some of the tech­nol­ogy and think­ing in the GT R with a more com­fort­able road car. “GT C is a more lux­u­ri­ous ver­sion, it’s more so­phis­ti­cated,” Mo­ers said. The GT C gets a 410kw/680nm ver­sion of the twin-turbo V8, well up on the 350kw/630nm and 375kw/650nm pro­duced by the same ba­sic en­gine in the AMG GT and AMG GT S.
