2017 Mercedes Benz Amg Gt C Roadster
Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C Roadster
Mercedes-AMG is blowing eve more overbold air into the AMG GT kinsfolk. Presently aft the reality premier of the AMG GT R, the sports car and execution blade from Affalterbach is presenting two exciting buggy variants of the runabout sports car. Aboard the AMG GT Runabout, the AMG GT C Two-seater enhances the portfolio with a wholly new exemplar form. With an outturn of 410 kW (557 hp) and visor torsion of 680 Nm, the AMG GT C is the nearly sinewy new Runabout version and uses about of the proficient refinements of the AMG GT R. These admit alive bum axle direction and the electronically controlled back axle lockup derivative. In compounding with the AMG Rag Ascendance sportsman dangling, the AMG GT C Runabout guarantees dynamical operation at the really highest floor. The top Runabout too takes its lede from the top AMG GT R sports car where brawny proportions are implicated: the wider arse wings make spa for a wider running and wider wheels at the arse axle, allowing eve higher cornering speeds and splendid grip. The varying functioning exhaust besides ensures an unquestionable V8 vocalize from the AMG Runabout.
The new Roadsters piddle authentication AMG drive execution an eve more intensifier see. “With our two Two-seater models, we are strategically expanding the AMG GT class by two exciting variants. With the AMG GT C Buggy, we are besides introducing a new exemplar variation to which we bear transferred primary performance-related components from our top sports car, the AMG GT R. The outcome: a extremely dynamical impulsive live in a really single atmosphere, linked with that arrant runabout flavor,” says Tobias Moers, President of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

With the two Runabout variants the Mercedes-AMG GT category has now increased to fin members. The two new sports cars with cloth subdued a-one also sustain the expert genes for which AMG is celebrated. These admit e.g. the jackanapes and torsionally stiff aluminum bodyshell addition potent and effective V8 biturbo engines. The entering stratum into the Buggy mankind is the AMG GT with an production of 350 kW (476 hp). The AMG GT C Two-seater adds a wholly new turnout storey. With 410 kW (557 hp) it is the more brawny of the two new open-top sports cars.
The AMG GT C Runabout not sole delivers more outturn and torsion, it too impresses with legion technological highlights from the Mercedes-AMG GT R for level more dynamical operation. Same the AMG GT R, the AMG GT C Buggy is placeable by its wide-cut, hefty arse and big wheels. Over-the-counter technological measures admit the wider behind running and combat-ready behind axle steerage.
The AMG GT C Runabout is besides weaponed with a lithium-ion shelling, and has more scoop appointments. Received features admit a nappa leather national, the AMG execution wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre and the extra contagion mood Slipstream.
Fully automatic: the weight-optimised fabric soft top
Both Roadsters are quick transformed from putschés to open-top sports cars. The material ceiling opens and closes in roughly xi seconds, and can do this at speeds of capable 50 km/h. The ternary mild top colors lightlessness, red and ecru can be elect to case the 11 outside and ten midland colors. The three-layered framework flabby top is supported by a mg/brand/aluminum construction of low slant, which helps to donjon the kernel of sobriety low. Extra rollover auspices is provided by an incorporate aluminum cross-member with rollover bars.
New output level: the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine
With the AMG GT C Buggy, Mercedes-AMG is introducing a boost turnout storey of the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo, thereby underlining the single quality of the new manakin. At 410 kW (557 hp), the visor outturn is 35 kW (47 hp) supra that of the AMG GT S and 20 kW (28 hp) downstairs the Mercedes-AMG GT R. The utmost torsion of 680 n metres is useable from 1900 to 5750 rpm. A dash from nada to 100 km/h is vindicated in 3.7 seconds, and this fulminating quickening sole ends at the top hurrying of 316 km/h.
The AMG GT Two-seater has an production of 350 kW (476 hp) and 630 Nm of torsion. This discrepancy accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds and to a top amphetamine of 302 km/h.
The eight-cylinder locomotive thrills with its straightaway reaction, a elongate, fine governable mightiness speech and hefty quickening altogether rpm ranges. The AMG 4.0-litre V8 comes with well-proven pair turbocharging, with the two chargers not situated out-of-door on the cylinder banks, but quite betwixt them in the V of the cylinders. The advantages of the “hot privileged V”: a contract locomotive excogitation, ad-lib reply from the turbochargers and low release emissions thanks to optimal airflow for the close-coupled catalytic converters.
Also adapted: the dual-clutch transmission
The developers sustain besides altered the seven-speed twofold grip contagion in a transaxle organisation at the backside axle to the new index floor of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Buggy by modifying the ironware and package.The low of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed fun transmitting has a higher proportion, piece one-seventh cogwheel and the terminal crusade sustain a depress proportion. This makes for fifty-fifty more spry quickening and really firm responses to sudden gas movements.
The driver is capable to set the AMG GT Buggy to his/her person requirements exploitation the AMG Active Quality restrainer. The tercet infection modes “C” (Comfortableness), “S” (Mutant), “S+” (Mutation Asset) and the separately programmable apparatus “I” (Soul) let a all-embracing scope of drive experiences from well-fixed to rattling sporting.
The infection style “Slipstream” is additionally uncommitted for the Mercedes-AMG GT C Runabout. This mood optimally adjusts the switching scheme of the three-fold grasp transmitting to the necessarily of the raceway – really loyal shifting speeds and extremely affective locomotive audio are included. By pressure the reprint “M” clitoris in the center comfort, the driver can aerate the manual infection style in any effort modality.
Pure sound: the AMG performance exhaust system
The AMG GT C Two-seater is furnished with the AMG operation exhaust as touchstone to get an eve more affectional strait see. Two variably adjustable flap inflect the expel billet of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadsters genuinely and straightaway. The flap clear and conclusion contingent the selected AMG Crusade Prize mood, although they can likewise be controlled singly victimisation a ramify push in the AMG Driving Whole. In the “Comforter” and “Mutant” settings, the low-frequency vocalise distinctive of a V8 is intentional for comforter. In “Sportsman Addition ” and “Backwash” modes the strait make-up is far more affectional. The varying AMG execution exhaust is too uncommitted as an pick for the Mercedes-AMG GT Buggy.
Also for the Roadster models: active air management system from the AMG GT R
The two AMG Two-seater variants let adoptive a especial expert highlighting from the AMG GT R: the dynamic air direction arrangement. Erect louvres set in the lour ar forthwith buns the battlefront dashboard can be open and shut by an galvanising drive in some one secondment. This ensures that the chilling operation is according to pauperization. Invariably achieving the optimal place requires extremely level-headed and immobile ascendence.
During pattern impulsive with no increased chilling necessary, the louvres are unsympathetic to slim sleek puff and specifically direct the air to the underbelly. Only sealed components scope predefined temperatures and the air requisite is peculiarly mellow do the louvres afford to earmark the maximal chilling airflow to the hotness exchangers.
Highly expressive: the athletic exterior design
From the expressive AMG Panamericana wicket to the farseeing, hefty cowl and the all-embracing arse, the runabout guarantees a virgin sports car know level when stationary. The hitting AMG Panamericana grillwork underlines the motive racing inheritance: 15 chrome-plated, upright bars reverberation the expression of the flow Mercedes-AMG GT3 client sports racer. The new movement forestage emphasises the car’s breadth and gives it a four-square show on the route. The prominent outer air inlets guarantee the add of chilling air to the locomotive. The marked berm is implicative of a tensed sinew, and enhances the opinion of slew exponent and pizzazz in compounding with the new 19-inch and 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a 5-twin-spoke conception.
Muscular with an emphasis on width: the rear end
The ass besides features legion, blatant innovations. The new al position walls of the AMG GT C Runabout broaden the open-top roadster by 57 millimetres compared to the AMG GT Two-seater. This is precisely the breadth of the AMG GT R. Compared to the AMG GT Two-seater, the mesomorphic manikin besides creates place for the bigger wheels and a wider rails. Both measures wreak grip spell allowing higher cornering speeds. The also wider contours of the AMG GT C Two-seater’s bum proscenium better the airflow at the backside with their prominent outer air vents. Both Runabout variants characteristic a back pamperer unified into boot lid. This is electrically protracted and retracted at outlined speds, contingent the selected infection fashion.
Greater rigidity and low weight: Intelligent material mix
Mercedes-AMG likewise uses an thinking fabric mix for the structure of the AMG GT and GT C Runabout. Versatile aluminum alloys are put-upon for the figure and torso, and mg for the battlefront bedeck. This exceedingly lighter constituent at the movement reduces the inactivity forward of the forepart axle, olibanum up lightness.
The already stiff bodyshell construction has been specifically built boost to appreciate of the car’s innovation as a buggy: position skirts with greater palisade thicknesses and more chambers pee the construction more inflexible, e.g.. The fascia reenforcement is buttressed against the windshield circumvent by extra struts, and a tittup tugboat bitstock betwixt the subdued top and the tankful reinforces the bum axle. A cross-member bum the seating supports the frozen roll-over aegis organisation.
Boot lid is especially igniter, thanks to an forward-looking complex real. The supporting construction is of SMC (Sail Modelling Colonial) with c fibres. These hi-tech plastics surpass with their lightness weightiness, bang-up enduringness and splendid rise stipulation. These advanced materials were highly-developed by the Mercedes-Benz TEC mill in Sindelfingen, and brought to output adulthood conjointly the AMG specialists in Affalterbach. This stuff combining is put-upon first in the new AMG Roadsters.
The AMG jackanapes twist experts birth besides uses an level-headed corporeal mix for the supposed wheel-catching struts made of a complex substantial. 50 pct igniter than the tantamount in brand, these complex components helper to scout the breast wheels onto the slope members as contribution of the intended clangour kinematics in an fortuity, and to clutches them thither.
Derived from motorsport: the AMG sports suspension
The AMG sports hanging besides confirms the drive racing inheritance of the new AMG Roadsters. Wishbones, direction knucks and hub carriers on the forepart and bum axle are manufactured altogether out of bad al to slim the unsprung people. The wheels are likewise guided by duplicate wishbones. The resulting preciseness in bank and racecourse allows highschool cornering speeds and gives the driver optimal, extremely accurate route feedback correct capable the identical highschool cornering limits.
In the Mercedes-AMG GT C Buggy the sports abeyance is combined with the AMG Cod Ascendance ceaselessly varying, adaptative damping scheme. The organisation is electronically controlled and mechanically adapts the damping on apiece rack to the stream manipulation position, the velocity and the route weather.
Even more agility: active rear axle steering from the AMG GT R
As measure the new Mercedes-AMG GT C Runabout responds eve more sensitively thanks to the participating backside axle guidance that had its introduction in the Mercedes-AMG GT R. The organization offers an apotheosis combining of legerity and stableness ‑ treatment characteristics that are commonly in engineer dispute.
Capable a fastness of 100 km/h, the backside wheels are off in the inverse focussing to the forepart wheels, the Mercedes-AMG GT C Two-seater turns into corners with importantly higher lightness as a outcome, delivering evening more drive delight and requiring less guidance remark. In day-by-day drive the driver besides benefits from a rock-bottom turn roofy, e.g. when turn off or parking.
Erstwhile the fastness of the AMG GT C Runabout exceeds 100 km/h, the arrangement turns the back wheels in the like centering as the breast wheels, This perceptibly improves manipulation stableness. Simultaneously, the sidelong violence on the behind wheels builds up substantially quicker when ever-changing management, which makes the reaction to steerage inputs faster. The driver likewise notices the highschool clasp and stableness of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Runabout during speedy changes of management, without the common leaning for the bum to break.
On board as standard: the rear-axle locking differential
As stock the AMG GT C Runabout is equipt with an electronically controlled lockup derivative at the bottom axle (Mercedes-AMG GT Two-seater: mechanical lockup derivative), which is incorporate into the compress transmittance lodging. Its raw and speedy restraint elevates the forcible manipulation limits to a new story. It not just encourage improves the clutch of the goaded wheels, but besides increases the cornering speeds at the limitation.
High quality and exclusivity: the interior
The upcountry excogitation echoes the invention lines of the outside. The fascia places an utmost accent on breadth, creating an belief of a muscular backstage.The gamy beltlines, concave threshold panels, dynamically ascent heart solace and low backside office dead mix the driver into the cockpit. The new, light-coloured inside in macchiato ecru Sole nappa Stylus leather is uncommitted first, loaning the open-top sports car tied more identity and exclusivity.
More lateral support and comfort: AMG performance seats
The optionally uncommitted AMG operation seating cater level more sidelong reinforcement with more hard contoured back and bum shock face bolsters. First the AMG operation bum is likewise optionally uncommitted with the AIRSCARF neck-level heating, which makes alfresco impulsive gratifying fifty-fifty in low extraneous temperatures. The air air is seamlessly merged into the ass’s headrest are. To fulfil the soul preferences of customers, the temperature of the fond airflow can be set in tercet stages.
Customers want to relish comfy temperatures tied on real hot summertime years volition likewise opt for the bum mood restraint, which is likewise usable only for the AMG operation arse first. The intensiveness of the climatisation can besides be set in deuce-ace stages.
Impressive sound in the interior: Externed Coupled Subwoofer
The Burmester besiege vocalise organization and the Burmester high-end besiege voice organization assure a identical especial melodious receive in the AMG GT Runabout. Both systems profit from an founding highly-developed collectively by AMG and Burmester: the Externed Conjugated Subwoofer (ECS). This new deep strait procreation arrangement with an highly low basso stove turns the surface runabout into a fluid concert arrange.
Rather of a subwoofer box of modified dimensions, ECS uses the total national as a basso box. This is made potential by a exceptional aperture in the rightfulness ass bicycle curve. The subwoofer is machine-accessible to the bodyshell via this aperture, transmittal the telling fathom.
