Ever wondered what it’s like to actually be there on the show floor when a car maker unveils a brand-new model? Well, you need wonder no longer because in this post we are going to take you there and show you how it goes down, from beginning to the end. The car whose debut we’re celebrating here is the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster.
The hard-core open-top GT made its debut at the Paris Motor Show last night along with other variants of the AMG GT family and other new Mercedes-Benz models which made a guest appearance. But there is no doubt that Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster was the star of the event, and it could well be the star of the show, at least among production cars. So let’s join Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Management Board Mercedes-AMG, as he introduces the car:
In terms of raw performance Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster slots above the GT S and below the GT R, boasting a 410 kW (557 hp) and peak torque of 680 newton metres. It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds and on to a top speed of 302 km/h, and it has a soft top you can raise or lower electronically at speeds up to 50 km/h. The GT C also has the AMG performance exhaust and active air management systems as standard.
