Mercedes-AMG Unveils Three New GT Vehicles for Europe
Mercedes-AMG has just added the new GT Roadster, GT C Roadster and GT R models to its European lineup, in the company’s efforts to tease and convince new customers to purchase their incredible supercars – deliveries will only start next spring, but time flies really fast when you’re waiting for one of your dreams to come true.
The AMG GT Roadster is the most affordable of the three new models, with a cool price-tag of €129,180.45 ($136,761). It’s powered by an impressive 4.0L V8 bi-turbo engine, which is able to produce 476 PS (469 HP), and will take this supercar from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a mere 4 seconds and continue accelerating until it reaches a maximum speed of 301 km/h (187 mph), if you’re probably driving it on the Autobahn or on a track.
Featuring a fabric roof that takes 11 seconds to operate, at speeds of up to 50 km/h (32 mph), the GT C Roadster starts off at €160,650 ($170,077) and benefits from some technical features borrowed from the GT R, such as the electronically controlled rear axle limited-slip differential and active rear-axle steering.
If this is a ride you’d like, you should know that the very same V8 will develop 557 PS (549 HP) for the GT C Roadster and get the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and towards a top speed of 316 km/h (196 mph).
Of course, the Mercedes-AMG GT R version will be the most amazing of all, featuring a starting price of €165,410 ($175,116), fresh aerodynamics and an extensively modified suspension. The V8 under the hood is even more powerful, producing 585 PS (577 HP) V8 that will get it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, and toward a top speed of 318 km/h (198 mph).
