Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster revealed in leaked product map

Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster revealed in leaked product map

According to leaked docs, a drop-top version of the Mercedes-AMG GT supercar will be among nine new models to go on sale in 2017.

A GT C ROADSTER is among a range of new or updated Benzes to feature in 2017, according to a leaked Mercedes document published on the UK’s Autocar website. 

The new GT C is expected to feature a folding fabric roof, just like the model it essentially replaces; the SLS Roadster

Mercedes -AMG-GTA GT C Coupe is due to follow in the second half of 2017. Autocar believes this is meant to refer to a facelift for the coupe, though as the GT only emerged in 2015 it’s possible this is a new variant to join a line-up that already features mid-range S and hardcore R versions.

The roadmap document outlines other models for 2017, including the extension of the new-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan with Cabriolet and Coupe versions - plus a new All Terrain model that is likely to mimic jacked-up passenger cars such as the VW Passat Alltrack and Subaru Outback.

The GT Roadster would become the sixth convertible in Mercedes-Benz’s range, joining the SLK and SL sports cars, and the Cabriolet versions of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class and S-Class.
