Mercedes-AMG announced two new additions to their AMG GT collection, the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster and the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster.  The two-seater sports cars add power and variety to Mercedes’s already impressive AMG GT lineage while building on the AMG GT R’s improved technology.




At a glance, both the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster and Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster appear the same.  Both are incredibly light thanks to a mixed use of various aluminum alloys, magnesium, and carbon fiber.  Each model has a soft-top roof that opens and closes in approximately eleven seconds, up to 31 mph.  Both feature a long, lean hood, a wide rear end, a chrome grille, large outer air inlets, and sit on 19-inch (or 20-inch) 5-twin-spoke design alloy wheels.  Inside the cabin, both flaunt a wide dashboard, concave door panels, Macchiato Beige Nappa leather, and a raised center console.

Though both the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster and Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster have a V-8, twin turbocharged engine, there are some slight differences where power is concerned.  The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster generates 550hp and 502lb-ft of torque, bringing it from 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 196mph, while the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster falls slightly behind, reaching 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds and reaching a top speed of 188mph.  Additionally, the GT Roadster generates slightly less horsepower (469hp) and torque (465lb-ft).
