The 50 Years of Driving Performance anniversary is being used by Mercedes-AMG as the ideal occasion on which to add the new AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 as a further exclusive choice in the offering from the AMG GT family. Furthermore, Mercedes-AMG is offering the C 63 Cabriolet and C 63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition plus C 43 4MATIC Coupé and C 43 4MATIC Cabriolet Night Edition special models to provide even more variety for customers seeking that special something. All Editions combine extended ranges of equipment with special design features, thus making their own individual mark.
The sports car and performance brand from Affalterbach is using three selected special models to reassert the standard it has set itself to offer customers maximum individuality and exclusivity. "2016 was the most successful year so far in our company history. We shall be using this momentum to fill even more customers with enthusiasm for Mercedes-AMG in our anniversary year, 2017. We shall be supported in this by our new Editions, which we are presenting at the Geneva Motor Show. So we can now offer our customers an even wider choice of individual performance models", explained Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
Exclusive equipment package: Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50
The new AMG GT C Roadster is, like the new AMG GT C, also available as an exclusively equipped Edition 50 special model in a limited quantity of 500 cars worldwide. It marks the landmark year of the company, which was founded in 1967 and celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017.
At first glance the Edition 50 can be recognised by the two special paint finishes in designo graphite grey magno or designo cashmere white magno. Black chrome accents deliver a unique look. They are applied to the side skirt trim, the front splitter, the trim strips in the air intakes of the Panamericana grille, the fins on the side air outlets in the front wings, the trim on the rear diffuser and the exhaust tailpipe trim elements. The surface of the cross-spoke AMG forged wheels has been harmonised with the black chrome elements of the exterior.
The interior is marked by a contrast between black and silver. This colour scheme is followed not only by the trim in STYLE Exclusive nappa leather in silver pearl/black with grey diamond-patterned contrasting topstitching, but also by the black AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfibre with grey contrasting topstitching, 12 o'clock mark in silver pearl, "Edition 50" lettering plus a note on the limitation.
To emphasise the sporty character, the Edition comes as standard with the AMG Interior Night package, which includes steering wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill panels in black. The interplay between light and dark is further accentuated by silver seat belts and black chrome trim. The head restraint of the AMG Performance seat is embossed with "GT Edition 50".
All Editions can be ordered from 6th March 2017. Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet and C 63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition, Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé and Cabriolet Night Edition will be delivered from June 2017, the first units of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 will be with customers from July 2017.
