AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 marks Mercedes-AMG’s golden year of driving performance

Mercedes-AMG’s 50th year of driving performance served as the ideal occasion to add the new AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 to the AMG GT family.

The new AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 marks the landmark year of the company, which was founded in 1967. The special model will only have 500 units to be sold worldwide.

The Edition 50 can be recognized by the two special paint finishes, in designo graphite grey magno, or designo cashmere white magno. The black accents 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 to deliver a unique look. The surface of the cross-spoke AMG forged wheels has been harmonized with the black chrome elements of the exterior.

The interior is marked by a contrast between black and silver. The color scheme is visible in STYLE Exclusive nappa leather in silver pearl/black with grey diamond-patterned contrasting topstitching, and at the black AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfiber with grey contrasting topstitching. The “Edition 50” lettering is also visible, plus a note on the limitation.

To emphasize its sporty character, the Edition 50 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”.
