AMG GT C COUPE
With an unsurpassed motorsports pedigree behind it, the racers at Mercedes-AMG developed the GT C to be a pure sports car with an ideal sense of balance. From its proportions to its sound, every element reveals its purpose, and its passion.
AMG: Driving performance for 50 years
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Some things cannot be mass-produced.
To create perfection and then vouch for it, with one’s skill and one’s name — is a principle that’s lived and breathed at AMG. Every single AMG GT engine is hand-built by its own master craftsman. From the placement of the pistons to the recording of every torque spec, “One Man – One Engine” is a promise sealed by its creator’s signature on the plaque affixed atop each engine. Even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.
Born to perform, developed to outperform.
A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. Developed for AMG’s racecars, patented NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls cut friction, raising endurance and power.
Seamless thrust, seemingly endless.
A handcrafted AMG 4.0L “dry sump” V8 unleashes a torque-rich growl. Twin turbos mounted inside the “hot V” force-feed massive boost to each Direct Injected cylinder, to thrust the 550-hp AMG GT C to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds.**
Adheres to racing principles, and to every curve and contour.
The 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension employs highly rigid, lightweight forged aluminum components. Rear coil-overs are direct-mounted to the hub carriers. Three-stage AMG RIDE CONTROL adapts to road, track and driver. And multimode AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in key performance parameters.
Progressive ideas, aggressive results.
The available AMG Track Package hones the AMG GT C to an even sharper edge. Using electromagnetic fluid, dynamic engine and transaxle mounts progressively stiffen to keep handling precise. Power peaks over a wider rev-range in the Manual and Race modes. And the chassis is tuned to a more aggressive profile.
Ideal balance, instant response.
Helping create an ideal 46:54 front/rear balance, a rigid carbon-fibre driveshaft links the V8 and rear-mounted 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT transaxle. With selectable modes and rev-matching, it’s alarmingly quick yet astoundingly seamless. The limited-slip differential employs precise electronic control.
Carved from a singular passion
The AMG GT is sculpted to conquer wind and weight, and capture stares and hearts. Proportions celebrate its rear-wheel-drive power and ideally balanced chassis. Brilliant details turn airflow into athleticism. The result is a timeless yet trendsetting sports car that seduces your gaze to linger.
A shrine to high performance
The cockpit envelops your body, heightens your senses, and connects with your instincts. A dramatic, V-shaped console and crisp readouts convey the power of precision. The thick steering wheel and intuitive controls put you in command and at ease. Contoured AMG Performance seats support your every move.
Tailored to drive your desire
Your AMG GT C Coupe can express your passion and your sense of fashion. Its finely finished cockpit offers a spectrum of hand-fitted upholstery for the racing-style AMG Performance seats, as well as an array of modern trim options for the console and other elements.
Looks that thrill
Choose from five wheel designs, gloss or matte paint, and two styling packages: The gloss black elements of the AMG Night Package make an even stronger statement. And a suite of AMG Carbon Fibre elements and gloss black accents evoke the racing soul of the AMG GT C.
Hand, eye and car coordination.
A fingertip touchpad and sleek yet sizable 8.4″ screen deliver entertainment, navigation and apps with animated displays and intuitive menus. Another screen between the crisp analog gauges offers exclusive AMG readouts so you can keep an eye on turbo boost, oil temperature, speed and gear selection.
A mode for every driving mood.
A twist of the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT knob fine-tunes the car’s character. Each mode adapts the throttle maps, gear changes and more from Comfort to Sport+ to RACE, plus an Individual mode you set up for yourself. Key systems like the adaptive suspension and dynamic exhaust also offer separate controls.
A virtual trainer in your pocket.
Using performance driving data from your car, the new AMG Track Pace App can turn your Apple iPhone® into a virtual driving instructor. You can even pair in a GoPro® camera to analyze your skills, and share your results via AMG social media.***
An intelligent mix of materials
A high-strength, lightweight core is the key to impeccable performance. The GT spaceframe tips the scales at just 235 kg, yet leads its class in torsional and longitudinal rigidity. Cast, extruded and stamped aluminum composes 97% of its weight, with magnesium and advanced polymers among the remainder.
A protective, proactive eye on the future
Radar-based Active Brake Assist can help you avoid some frontal collisions, and can even initiate braking. ATTENTION ASSIST® can help sense a drowsy driver. A rear view camera, Parking Assist PARKTRONIC and Blind Spot Assist help smooth your moves from the driveway to the highway.****

****”Active Brake Assist may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
ATTENTION ASSIST may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
Blind Spot Assist is a warning system only, and may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
Rearview camera does not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and is not a substitute for actively checking around the vehicle for any obstacles or people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of dirt, ice or snow on the camera.”
