Mercedes-AMG Adds 3 New GTs To Its Lineup In Europe

#Mercedes-AMG has added the new GT Roadster, GT C Roadster and GT R to its European lineup, and has started accepting orders for all three cars in Germany, with more countries to follow.

Joining the likes of the AMG GT and AMG GT S, the AMG GT Roadster is the most affordable of the three new additions to the range, carrying a starting price of €129,180.45 ($136,761). For the money, buyers will enjoy a 476 PS (469 HP) 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo engine, which help it sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4 seconds, and up to a top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph).

Featuring the same fabric roof that takes 11 seconds to open or close, operable at speeds of up to 50 km/h (32 mph), the GT C Roadster is the more potent version. It carries a starting price of €160,650 ($170,077) and benefits from some of the technical features of the beastly GT R, such as the electronically controlled rear axle limited-slip differential, and active rear axle steering. In this variant, the turbo'd-eight is good for 557 PS (549 HP), allowing it to go from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, and topping out at a top speed electronically capped at 316 km/h (196 mph).

Introduced earlier this year, the most hardcore variant of the AMG GT family, the GT R, is also available for order, for €165,410 ($175,116). The "Beast of the Green Hell", as the Germans named it during the teasing campaign, has new aerodynamics and an extensively modified suspension, along with a 585 PS (577 HP) V8 engine. The AMG GT R moves closer to modern supercar territory, with its ability to go from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, and up to 318 km/h (198 mph).

The three models are already available for order in Germany, but first deliveries won't take place until next spring.
