RIDES: AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50
March 20, 2017
The 50 Years of Driving Performance anniversary campaign by Mercedes-AMG led to the recent introduction of the AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50.
The new AMG GT C Roadster is, like the new AMG GT C Coupe, available as an exclusively equipped Edition 50 special edition in a limited quantity of just 500 cars worldwide, with 50 coming to the U.S. This special edition model marks a landmark year for AMG, which was founded in 1967 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017.
The GT C Roadster “Edition 50” can be recognized by its special paint finish in designo Graphite Grey Magno. Black chrome accents deliver a unique look and are applied to the side skirt trim, front splitter, trim strips in the air intakes of the Panamericana grille, fins on the side air outlets in the front fenders, on the rear diffuser and tailpipe trim elements. The surface of the cross-spoke AMG forged wheels compliments the black chrome elements found on the exterior, according to Mercedes-AMG.
The interior is marked by a contrast between black and silver. This color scheme is followed not only by upholstery in silver Pearl/Black Exclusive Nappa Leather with gray diamond-patterned contrasting topstitching, but also by the black AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfiber with Grey contrasting topstitching, 12 o’clock mark in Silver Pearl, and Edition 50 badging.
To emphasize sporty character, the Edition comes as standard with the AMG Interior Night Package, which includes steering wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill panels finished in black. The interplay between light and dark is further accentuated by silver seat belts and black chrome trim throughout. The head restraint of the AMG Performance seat is embossed with “GT Edition 50.”
