German luxury brand Mercedes-Benz is celebrating its 50th anniversary of partnership with AMG in a big way and the performance brand is out to make it the best year ever. Period. The AMG high-performance brand is pulling out the big guns with the all-new Mercedes-Benz GT C coupe. The latest addition to the GT family is the perfect way to celebrate such a milestone!
Mercedes-Benz’s 50th anniversary with AMG goes off with a roaring 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers a blazing 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. The all-new GT C coupe boasts a 0-to-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds and a top speed just shy of 200 mph.
The GT C coupe is slated to sit above the GT and GT S and below the GT R. The AMG GT C roadster that the coupe is modeled after debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show just a few months ago.
The luxury brand will produce just 50 units of the special-edition GT C coupe on its initial run. A larger production run is slated to follow shortly after. The automaker has yet to provide a starting price for the GT C coupe.
We here at Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead are pumped to see the new GT C coupe in action!
