*I misspoke in the video at one point. The GT R is only a coupe.

The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster came by for training today! This car is just beautiful. The proportions are perfect, the colors are exactly what I would pick for myself and it sounds as good as it looks! Unfortunately, this one is just visiting. We are lucky to have had two AMG training sessions this month alone!

So, what is a GT C? We have looked at the GT and GT S before. You certainly can’t have missed the GT R! The Beast of the Green Hell has been everywhere lately! The GT line-up now includes coupes and roadsters with various levels of power and appearance. The visual clues are easiest to see in the fenders and trim elements.

There are currently four versions of the GT available:

  • GT coupe and roadster – 469 hp and 465 lb/ft of torque. $112,000/$124,400
  • GT S coupe – adds power – 515 hp and 494 lb/ft of torque. $132,400
  • GT C coupe and roadster – adds power, wide body rear, rear-axle Steering – 550 hp and 502 lb/ft of torque. $145,000/$157,000
  • GT R coupe – adds power, wide body front, carbon fiber body work – 577 hp and 516 lb/ft of torque. $157,000

There is certainly no bad GT in the group! The deciding factors for most people would be looks or power. All four versions have hand-built one man, one engine V8s from Affalterbach. All four now feature the Panamericana grille. The roadster versions are power folding soft tops.

  • So, you want to drive it every day, put the top down but don’t need all that power =  GT roadster for you!
  • You like a weekend monster that the valet will park up front: GT R for you! (Magno matte green Hell of course!)
  • Daily driver with a kick: GT S coupe

See? It’s kind of a fun game to match your GT to your situation! I am sure there will be someone who daily drives the GT R but gernally that’s not how this game is played.
