Like the Roadster unveiled at the Paris Auto Show, the new AMG GT C Coupe impresses with courtesy of numerous technical highlights from the Mercedes-AMG GT R. The new GT C Coupe will launch in the form of a special ‘Edition 50’ model. Like the AMG GT R, the new member of the family is identifiable by its broad, muscular rear end and large wheels. Other technical measures include a wider rear track and active rear axle steering.
The new rear fenders make the AMG GT C a total of 2.25 inches wider than the AMG GT and AMG GT S, giving it exactly the same dimension as the AMG GT R at the rear of the car. The muscular styling creates space for larger wheels and a wider track. Both measures increase traction while allowing higher cornering speeds. The likewise wider rear bumper of the AMG GT C improves the airflow at the rear. In common with the AMG GT and AMG GT S, the rear aerofoil is integrated into the luggage compartment flap and is electrically extended or retracted at predetermined speeds, depending on the selected drive program.
The new AMG GT C Coupe will launch as an exclusive special ‘ Edition 50’ model to mark the landmark year of the company, which was founded in 1967 and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2017. The U.S. Edition 50 model will come to market with an exclusive production run of 50 AMG GT C Coupes and 50 AMG GT C Roadsters.
The Edition 50 will be available in and exclusive special paint finish: designo Graphite Grey Magno. To give the exterior a distinctive look, black chrome highlights are applied to the side skirt trim, front splitter, trim strips in the air inlets of the Panamericana grille, fins on the side air outlets in the front fenders, the molding on the rear diffuser and exhaust tailpipe trims. The surface of the cross-spoke AMG forged wheels has been harmonized with the black chrome elements of the exterior. A unique “Edition 50” badge adorns the rear of this model.
The interior is marked by a contrast between black and silver. This color scheme is followed not only by the trim in exclusive nappa leather in silver pearl/black with grey diamond-patterned contrasting topstitching, but also by the black AMG Performance steering wheel in full DINAMICA microfiber with grey contrasting topstitching, “Edition” lettering on the steering wheel bezel and 12 o’clock mark in silver pearl.
To emphasize the sporty character, the ‘Edition 50’ comes as standard with the AMG Interior Night package, which includes steering wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill panels finished in black. The AMG Interior Night Package compliments the Exclusive Carbon Fiber Matte interior trim, surrounded by AMG Black Piano Lacquer accents. The entire interior ambience is an expression of sport and exclusivity.
The interplay between light and dark is further accentuated by silver seat belts and black chrome trim. The head restraint of the AMG Performance seat is embossed with a “GT Edition 50” logo.
Motor sport heritage is further visually accentuated by the AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber package, which uses high-grade carbon fiber for the front splitter, side fins on the air outlets in the front fenders, exterior mirror housings, side skirt inserts (AMG GT C only) and rear diffuser.
