2018 Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster / GT C Roadster Driven: Beheaded But Little Changed

The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT/GT C Roadster is a convertible which has a top that opens very quickly, but drives so smooth, it may be hard to tell the top is down. The engine in this car feels like it may have a V-16 although it has a turbo V-8. This car has a rearward facing engine.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s not hard to get excited by a Mercedes-AMG sports car aimed at the Porsche 911. But it can be hard to wrap your head around the Mercedes-AMG GT lineup.
  • The GT is imperturbable, constantly goading its driver to enter corners faster, accelerate earlier and harder, and brake later. The stoppers are firm, progressive, and tireless.
  • GT roadsters will be available by this fall. Prices have not yet been announced. The entry-level car should be around $130,000 and the C reaching into the $160Ks.
