The new AMG GT Roadster premiered at the Paris Motor Show 2016. The new AMG is an open-top two seater which is going to be present in two versions. The car will be ready to be launched in February, 2017.
“AMG customers love the GT – no wonder we keep expanding the model family,” said Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing and Sales.
The base model will feature a 4.0 Liter V8 bit turbo engine. The car is supposed to produce a horsepower of 476bhp. The new dynamic version of this AMG GT Roadster is supposed to feature a horsepower of 557bhp.
“With an output of 557 hp and maximum torque of 680 Nm, the AMG GT C Roadster is positioned between the AMG GT S and AMG GT R. Its AMG GT R genes are instantly recognisable – from the Panamericana grille to the powerful rear end. This roadster offers both – power cruising at its best and driving performance at the highest level,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The open top and performance oriented preparation makes it a success for the GT family of the AMG Mercedes-Benz. The AMG GT Roadster will offer the fuel efficiency of 11.4-9.41 per one hundred kilometer. The CO2 emission in the car is supposed to be 259-219g/km.
There are other features that will make this range a true choice for a sports cars lover. It has a sports suspension, a widened track at the rear, an electronically controlled rear. The car will also offer a switchable performance exhaust system. It also dampens the sound of the car.
The car AMG GT Roadster will have exciting interior design that is pretty decent to look at too. The car is supposed to have steering wheel in the nappa leather.
The AMG performance seats will be available as an option too if the customers wants them. The top of AMG GT Roadster will be able to open and close in only eleven seconds. The top will be able to close and open even at the speed of 50km/h.
Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Roadster will be available in two versions for market launch in February 2017.
Paris also marks the premiere of the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé, which pairs elegantly sporty design with the brand’s trademark Driving Performance. Added to that are the classic SUV strengths of seating position, interior versatility and traction both on and off the beaten track.
“ Starting this year, we will offer the widest model range in the entire performance segment, “said Tobias Moers, continuing: “In fact, we will top up our portfolio by at least ten newcomers. With that, we will offer a choice of no less than 48 different AMG performance cars.”
