From the expressive AMG Panamericana grille to the long, muscular bonnet and the wide rear end, the two-seater guarantees a pure sports car experience even when stationary. The striking AMG Panamericana grille underlines the motor racing heritage: 15 chrome-plated, vertical bars echo the look of the current Mercedes‑AMG GT3 customer sports racing car. The new front apron emphasises the car’s width and gives it a four-square appearance on the road. The large outer air inlets ensure the supply of cooling air to the engine. The pronounced shoulder is suggestive of a tensed muscle, and enhances the impression of sheer power and dynamism in combination with the new 19-inch and 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a 5-twin-spoke design.
The rear end also features numerous, conspicuous innovations. The new aluminium side walls of the AMG GT C Roadster widen the open-top two-seater by 57 millimetres compared to the AMG GT Roadster. This is exactly the width of the AMG GT R. Compared to the AMG GT Roadster, the muscular form also creates space for the larger wheels and a wider track. Both measures make for traction while allowing higher cornering speeds. The likewise wider contours of the AMG GT C Roadster’s rear apron also improve the airflow at the rear with their large outer air vents. Both Roadster variants feature an aerofoil integrated into the boot lid. This is electrically extended and retracted at defined speds, depending on the selected transmission mode.
The interior design echoes the design lines of the exterior. The dashboard places an extreme emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing. The high beltlines, concave door panels, dynamically rising centre console and low seat position perfectly integrate the driver into the cockpit. The new, light-coloured interior in macchiato beige Exclusive nappa STYLE leather is available for the first time, lending the open-top sports car even more individuality and exclusivity.
The optionally available AMG performance seats provide even more lateral support with more heavily contoured backrest and seat cushion side bolsters. For the first time the AMG performance seat is also optionally available with the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, which makes open-air driving enjoyable even in low outside temperatures. The air vent is seamlessly integrated into the seat’s head restraint area. To meet the individual preferences of customers, the temperature of the warm airflow can be set in three stages.
Customers wishing to enjoy comfortable temperatures even on very hot summer days will also opt for the seat climate control, which is also available exclusively for the AMG performance seat for the first time. The intensity of the climatisation can also be set in three stages.
