WHAT IS THE AMG GT C?
Mercedes only made 50 units in roadster & coupe form but what exactly is it...
The AMG GT C Edition 50 was built to celebrate AMG’s 50 years of existence and is limited to only 50 units worldwide. It possesses a twin turbocharged 4.0ltr V8 that produces 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. In terms of performance it sits between the AMG GT S and the AMG GT-R, however what's different about it?
Firstly, the specification: launched in 'Matt Graphite Grey Magno' with black chrome trim and wheels makes the GT C possess a spec like no other. The interior is exquisite and consists of a combination of black and grey quilted upholstery and a suede covered steering wheel. It feels more luxurious compared to the GT-R and is more suited to grand touring rather than the track. However, the GT C would not lack in this area as the model possesses a wide body like the GT-R to accommodate the wider track and active rear steering to improve agility and dexterity.
Secondly, the limited numbers: limited to only 50 coupe and 50 roadster units worldwide makes the GT C Edition 50 one of the rarest and exclusive AMG editions the German car maker has ever released. 50 years of AMG is a monumental achievement and is a milestone to be remembered in history. Values are unlikely to drop, but rather increase in the long term making this model an excellent investment.
