Mercedes-AMG GT C Edition 50
November 20, 2017 – Mercedes-AMG GT C Edition 50
The Mercedes-AMG GT C Edition 50 roadster provides an exhilarating open top experience unlike anything else in the Mercedes-AMG range. It’s sleek profile with wide arches and long bonnet makes just looking at it increase your heart rate.
To celebrate 50 years of AMG the Mercedes-AMG GT C Edition 50 was born. With just 500 roadsters and 500 coupes available worldwide it’s rare to see one and even rarer to be one of the lucky few individuals to own one. The GT C Edition 50 is available in 2 exterior colours; Designo Cashmere White Magno, and Designo Graphite Grey Magno. Both paint options are satin and are targeted at exposing the curvaceous and wide body of the GT C. The shadow chrome interior and exterior elements are a standout addition to making the Edition 50 the poster car it set out to be.
The engineering marvel that is the 4.0L BiTurbo V8 that powers this beast puts down a total of 557 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque going directly to the rear wheels. Both of the turbochargers are located inside the cylinder V (Hot Inner V) which are used to decrease turbo lag and maximize throttle response. All this power rockets the GT C to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds flat.
Featuring some of the most advanced technology for a road car the GT C is able to stand out against competitors in almost every aspect. Active rear-wheel steering is one of the main features that improves handling immensely. The rear wheels turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels up to 100 km/h and is used to shorten the wheelbase of the car to make the car more agile in corners. For speeds over 100 km/h the rear wheels steer the same direction as the front wheels to lengthen the wheelbase for increased stability and handling. The active rear-wheel steering in combination with the extremely lightweight and rigid aluminum spaceframe construction means the GT C is able to perform like a world class Olympian both on and off the track.
