A teaser video for the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT C roadster has been released prior to its unveiling at end of the month at the Paris motor show.
Thanks to two sets of spy photographs — one professional high resolution collection, and an earlier low resolution smartphone set — we already have a very good idea of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster looks like with its fabric roof raised.
In the video, above, we get to see the side profile of soon-to-be-revealed convertible with its top down. We’ve tinkered with the brightness and contrast in the screenshot below to give us a better view of the car.
Under the long hood, the GT C will feature a version of AMG’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. In the regular GT coupe the engine makes 340kW/600Nm, while the more potent S trim has a 375kW/650Nm iteration of the engine.
In order to achieve structural rigidity almost on par with the coupe, the GT C will likely weigh more than the base coupe’s 1615kg. Despite that, performance to 100km/h shouldn’t be off by more than 0.1 of a second.
For reference, the base GT coupe requires four seconds flat to see off the 0-100km/h standard and has a top speed of 304km/h. Meanwhile, the GT S is able to blow past the 100km/h mark in 3.8 seconds on its way to a v-max of 310km/h.
