Mercedes-Benz kicked off the 50th anniversary of its high-performance AMG division this year by adding the new Mercedes-AMG GT C Coupe. The two-door sports car was unveiled alongside the previously-announced AMG GT C Roadster at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Both cars feature aggressive, sporty styling with the company’s distinctive “AMG Panamericana” grille.

“With the AMG GT C Coupe, we are now expanding our portfolio of sports cars to six models plus the AMG GT3 customer sport racing car,” said Tobias Moers, chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Both vehicles are powered by AMG 4.0-liter V-8, twin-turbo and direct injection engines that are rated at 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft peak torque. The engines are mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The top speed for both vehicles is 196 miles per hour, with 0-60 times of 3.7 seconds.

The AMG GT C Coupe will initially be available exclusively as a special “Edition 50” model, which comes with special badging, coloring and other features, including an AMG Interior Night package, which includes steering wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill panels finished in black. The U.S. Edition 50 model will come to market with an exclusive production run of 50 AMG GT C Coupes and 50 AMG GT C Roadsters.
