Currently, you can get behind the wheel of AMG GT C Roadster, but with the new Coupe offering — which will initially be available exclusively as a special Edition 50 model — the new Mercedes-AMG GT C sits between AMG GT S and AMG GT R, offering even more variety for anyone who enjoys a 4.0L V8 powered rocket with 467-hp. This puts the AMG GT lineup to 7 offerings in total, if you’re counting. In addition, the new models are identifiable by the distinctive Panamericana grille, which is now a feature of all AMG GT models.
