2018 Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50 Release Date and Design

This year, Mercedes-AMG® is celebrating its 50th anniversary. One way the Mercedes-Benz sub-brand is honoring 50 years of making exceptional vehicles is by introducing a few special models, such as the AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50. The exclusive roadster is making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show and will be available with a limited release. Here’s what we know so far about the release date and new design of the 2018 Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50.

What to expect from the Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50

To make the special AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50 stand out from the crowd, the special model will be coated in an exclusive finish called designo® Graphite Gray Magno, which is complemented by stunning black chrome accents on the side skirts, front splitter, front grille, front fender vents, rear diffuser, and exhaust tailpipe trims. The interior also features black accents along with contrasting silver elements to draw attention to the high-quality design.

In terms of performance, the Edition 50 model will carry over all mechanical components from the Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster. These include a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that can deliver 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft torque as well as a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50 Release Date

The Mercedes-AMG® GT C Roadster Edition 50 will be released in just 500 units worldwide, and only 50 of those will make it to the United States. These special models will be available during late 2017 along with the regular 2017 Mercedes-AMG® GT C and GT C Roadster models.
