AMG has revealed three new limited volume edition models
7 March 2017

The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 is one of three new limited-edition models from the performance division set for imminent production following.

The line-up also includes the C63 Cabriolet and C63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition as well as the C43 4Matic Coupe and C43 4Matic Cabriolet Night Edition.

All feature unique colour and trim combinations along with individual design touches and an extended range of standard equipment over their standard siblings.

The rear-wheel drive GT C Roadster Edition 50, like the earlier GT C Edition 50, will be produced in a limited run of 500 in celebration of AMG’s 50thanniversary.

It comes with the standard GT C Roadster’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine, delivering 549bhp, and can be ordered in one of two unique paint finishes: grey magno or design cashmere white. The new soft top also receives darkened chromed exterior elements as well as darkened forged alloy wheels.

Inside, there is a combination of black and silver leather for the seats and centre console together with touches from AMG’s existing Interior Night Package, with the steering wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill panels in black. The contrasting colour theme is continued with silver seat belts and black chrome trim elements.  The head rests are also embossed with the words “GT Edition 50”.

The rear-wheel drive C63 Cabriolet and C63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition are even more exclusive, with AMG confirming plans for a limited run of no more than 150.

Retaining the standard C63’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 with either 460bhp or 503bhp, the open top duo feature a fabric hood in blue – a colour that is also found within the front bumper, wheel caps on the standard 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels and within the rear diffuser. Two exterior paint finishes are offered: design cashmere white magno and design selenite grey magno.

The third of AMG’s new limited volume edition models, the four-wheel drive C43 4Matic Coupe and C43 4Matic Cabriolet Night Edition, are distinguished by a number of altered exterior elements, including a black diamond themed grille as well as black trim strips on the front splitter, side sills and rear valence panel. They also receive standard matt black 19-inch alloy wheels with high-gloss rim flanges.

The C43 4Matic Coupe and C43 4Matic Cabriolet Night Edition are both powered by AMG’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine producing the same 362bhp as the standard C43 4Matic Coupe and Cabriolet.

The three new AMG Edition models can be ordered from 6 March, 2017. The C63 Cabriolet and C63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition, as well as the C43 4Matic Coupe and C43 4Maric Cabriolet Night Edition are planned for delivery in June, with the GT C Roadster Edition 50 set to follow in July. No prices have yet been announced.

Does it come with binoculars so as you'd be able to see the front of bonnet when parking

[quote=xxxx]Does it come with binoculars so as you'd be able to see the front of bonnet when parking[/quote] Does it come with the service of a man with a red flag so you'd be able to emerge from junctions? I suspect the bonnet length & the width of the GT are purely 'for show' Having said that, the GT Special Edition appears much better built than standard Mercedes models if the pencil-thin panel gaps are anything to go by (The same goes for the Maybach version of the G-class) This means that customers have to buy top spec version of Mercedes cars for perceived built quality.

Autocar tech dept - please note - the 'Quote' function doesn't work, nor can the text be separated into paragraphs. I do hope your staff cars are more reliable than your website!

Mercedes are waiting for their finance department to wake up from crystal meth induced comas to announce the prices. The design team are also figuring out where they can fit the 'individual exclusive special limited-edition' badges.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
