    AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    As expected the GT-C will also be available as Coupe. It is a GT-S with the GT-R body kit. 

    Nevertheless - the introduction will be spectacular as they put a 50-year AMG anniversary car on the street. This car will be available for 5 months only. Apparently the limitation is given by sales-period and not by number of cars, interesting!

    The car should have looked like this from beginning on!

    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    I need one in my life!!

    It's more than just a GT-S with GT R body though, it has more power and revised suspension as well... I like it a lot!

    They need to offer a version with the Aston-Martin 7-speed dog-leg manual, now that AMG and A-M are partners.

    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    I don't like shark look of front,the previous one was nicer IMHO.


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    Looks really nice in that color.


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    Looks nice. Definitely get this over a 911.


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    I like all of the GT models actually.

    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    agree with Lars - this is how it should have looked from the beginning kiss


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    I test drove the GT S begining of the year, the engine is bombastic, but I don't like the long hood and sitting so far behind the front axle. This did't gave me the right feeling for the car in corners, also in the city I did't feel confident especially when turning left or right in smaller streets.

    Driving the Boxster or a 911 gives me the feeling I have 100 percent control over the car. It's the very confident feeling when driving a Porsche. I missed that in the AMG. In the Porsche I feel direct conected to the steering and the front wheels. The car reacts 100 percent as expected on steering input.

    I would really love to like the AMG because of the engine and the sound.

    Very interested to know how the GT R drives, maybe in spring (if my Mercedes sales guy believes I am interested in one... Smiley).

    Funny wise - I was driving the GT-S and I felt it was very very agile and felt extremely short . This saying, I was at that day going to AMG with my SLS, which indeed has a long hood. The GT felt very much like the 991 - just, it had this cool feeling that you are sitting on the rear axle. I think the GT has the name GT for a reason. It is the Roadster Feeling from old Brits and the muscle feeling of modern US big blocks. 

    I would never compare it with a Boxster. You compare a sports car which handles like a go-cart and while the performance of the GT is just another league. I guess, if you would have had the 991 to compare it would be a different judgement. If you step out of the Boxster, the Carrera feels, long, heavy and under-steering, too.

    Really? I had a Boxster as a loaner recently and I was a bit shocked in a negative way, I gave to say. Could not wait to be back in my car Smiley

    I think you misunderstand me - all I'm saying is that the Boxster feels much shorter and through the mid-engine like a go-cart. 

    Other than that the Boxster feels like half of the 991. No doubt about that!

    GT-C Coupe officially announced.  Will be the bargain of the range.

    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    Basic GT and GT-S were also upgraded.  Used GT-S prices will be pretty low...


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    Gorgeous car and perhaps indeed the pick of the range. This in silver with the lightweight forged AMG-wheels, yummm! angel

    I get your point, but how is that different to buying a C2S before the GTS is launched? Smiley

    I would assume it is not a coincidence it is announced simultaneously with the 991.2 GTS.

    There is an announcement that all GT facelift cars (Autumn 2017) will receive the Panamericana Grill. Further on, there will be some interior features as well as the four wheel steering available for the GT and GT-S.

    Different opinion here. The GT-C / GT-R looks pretty awesome. If they would have launched the car in the beginning like that, it would have sold much better. But you know... once it is ruined it is ruined. 

    Many of my SLS friends are having a GT-R on order. They all think they hit the jackpot. They assume the the car goes double in price, once it is up for delivery. I can't believe that. I actually believe, that within a year you will see cars available 30% below MSRP.

    Agree, AMGs depreciate heavily. Even the SLS is, at least in the UK, still below RRP now.


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    SLS was unique. It had the doors. The AMG GT-whatever will depreciate just like any other car. If the SLR tanked, I don't know why anyone would think a normal AMG model wouldn't.


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    Jumping on the R does not make sense knowing Black Series is coming


    Re: AMG GT-C / 50years anniversary

    agree
