Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster
This is what Mercedes-Benz calls the Panamericana Grille inspired by the 300SL that raced and won in the Carrera Panamericana.
It also gets the flared rear wheel arches from the AMG GT-R and new cooling vents in the rear bumper that helps keep the rear mounted gearbox at ideal temperatures.
The roof opens or closes in only eleven seconds and at speeds up to 50 kmph.
AMG has not just chopped the roof off, the windscreen too sits at a much sharper angle and is lower than on the coupe and all these little changes accentuates the long bonnet and stubby hood of the car even more!
The car comes in two variants - the Standard AMG GT Roadster and the more powerful GT C Roadster
Both the standard and the GT C come with a twin turbo 4.0 litre V8. The former makes 470 bhp and the GT C here makes 550 bhp.
The gear shift is just way too far back to be comfortable especially when you need to get into neutral when in traffic.
The cars come with 7-speed dual clutch gearbox which is now very responsive as compared to some older AMG units.
