Mercedes will soon be offering another AMG GT version that’s designed to compete with the different versions of the Porsche 911.
Mercedes officials unveiled the new 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C coupe at the 2017 North American International Auto Show. TFL’s Roman Mica got a glimpse of the new vehicle and had the chance to speak with a Mercedes representative about the specifics of the new car.
The GT C’s engine produces 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, placing it between the faster GT S and the slower GT R models. The new coupe can also go from zero to 60 in about 3.7 seconds.
Pricing hasn’t been announced for the new vehicle. Mercedes officials anticipate that the GT C will be available for purchase at the end of the year.
“With the AMG GT C Coupe, we are now expanding our portfolio of sports cars to six models plus the AMG GT3 customer sport racing car,” said Tobias Moers, chairman of the board of management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “In fewer than three years, the second vehicle to be developed by us entirely in-house has grown into a family, offering a highly dynamic driving experience in a variety of forms. We are kicking off our anniversary year with the exclusive ‘Edition 50’ model of the new AMG GT C Coupe. We are also taking this opportunity to refine the AMG GT and AMG GT S, both visually and technically.”
Also at the show was a revamped GT S. That model received a bit of a facelift with a new grille and more power under the hood. Pricing for the new GT S also hasn’t been announced yet.
