2018 Mercedes-AMG GT update: More power for GT, GT S; new GT C coupe

The 2018 model year Mercedes-AMG GT update has slightly changed looks, standard active aero, and an Edition 50 model to celebrate AMG’s 50th birthday.

The GT range gets the Panamericana grille as standard with 15 chrome-plated vertical bars, a new front bumper with larger air inlets, and the Airpanel active air management system from the GT R.

All GT models are powered by a 4-liter twin-turbo V8. The GT coupe and roadster now has 350kW (469hp) and 630Nm (465 lb-ft), up 10kW (13hp) and 30Nm (22 lb-ft).

The GT S now has 385kW (515hp) and 670Nm (494 lb-ft), up 9kW (12hp) and 20Nm (15 lb-ft).

The new GT C coupe has the same 410kW (550hp) and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) engine that made its debut in the GT C Roadster. And the GT R is unchanged at 430kW (577hp) and 700Nm (516 lb-ft).

To celebrate AMG’s 50th birthday, the GT C will be available in Edition 50 trim for just 50 coupes and 50 roadsters. Each Edition 50 model has Graphite Grey Magno paint, black and silver interior, and black chrome for the wheels, side skirts, front splitter, grille inlets, fender fins, rear diffuser, and exhaust.
