The recent leaked documents from Mercedes-Benz reveal their future product plans for the next two year, and in that line-up was the AMG GT C convertible and GT C coupe slatted for 2017. But the line-up remains rather vague when it comes to the GT series – Many reports were stating that the new AMG GT C is just a convertible version of the standard GT, but that’s not true. The GT C will be another model to complete the line up and slot right between the AMG GT S and the GT R.
It’s pretty simple to be honest; Diamler confirms “C is not for convertible,” and the new AMG GT C will be bang in the middle of the GT S and GT R in terms of performance and price but there will also be a topless version of the AMG GT S in the future. Now we know Mercedes-Benz is aiming for the Porsche 911 and their entire line-up but are they sort of wasting time just slowly dripping models onto the scene while Porsche gets to work on their 911 and improve it further.
Meanwhile, you could wait for the Paris Motor Show for a possible unveiling of the GT C coupe and convertible versions – but if you were like us, you’d probably be waiting for the AMG GT Black Series which should directly rival the Porsche GT 2 RS although we don’t know if they can match those insane performance figures.
