Mercedes-AMG GT range updated

Mercedes AMG GT range

Australia's AMG sports car range swells with Roadster, base GT and GT R models

The model Mercedes calls “the hero model of the AMG range” is set for a pricing update in Oz, as well as a raft of new additions.

The range will also become incrementally more powerful, with GT models getting small boosts in power and torque.

More importantly, Mercedes has announced the addition of the AMG GT R Coupé to Australia's line-up.

The 430kW/700Nm halo car recently set a new production car record of 2 minutes 16.5 seconds around Mount Panorama in Bathurst.

As well as the GT R Coupe making its way Down Under, the GT and GT S will benefit from little increases in power.

The GT will gain 10kW to bring output to 350kW and gets another 30Nm to total 630Nm. The GT S gets an extra 9kW to bring power up to 384kW and 20Nm to give the car 670Nm.

Mercedes will also bring the AMG GT and GT C Roadsters to Australia, “in preparation for the warmer months to come.”

While the GT Roadster is essentially the same as the Coupe, sans roof, the GT C is an angrier, 410kW/980Nm version of the model.

It also gets rear-axle steering and similar styling to the GT R. The GT C will also be available in Edition 50 Coupe spec until next year. This adds AMG Performance seats and steering wheel, extra detailing, and a plethora of other styling cues.

The GT range updates are due to take effect in October, with MRLP pricing as announced by M-B below:

GT Coupé $258,711 
GT Roadster $283,711
GT S Coupé $298,711
GT C Edition 50 Coupé $335,211
GT C Roadster $338,711
GT R Coupé $348,711
