2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C Edition 50 Interior. The interior is marked by a contrast between black and silver. This color scheme is followed not only by the trim in exclusive nappa leather in silver pearl/black with grey diamond-patterned contrasting topstitching, but also by the black AMG Performance steering wheel in full DINAMICA microfiber with grey contrasting topstitching, “Edition” lettering on the steering wheel bezel and 12 o’clock mark in silver pearl.
To emphasize the 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 finished in black. The AMG Interior Night Package compliments the Exclusive Carbon Fiber Matte interior trim, surrounded by AMG Black Piano Lacquer accents. The entire interior ambience is an expression of sport and exclusivity.
The new AMG Track Pace feature is optionally available for the entire AMG GT family. It turns the smartphone into a personal racing engineer. Customers can use the app to analyze and improve their driving style on the track as well as sharing with other AMG drivers on Facebook, YouTube or the AMG Private Lounge. The app for the Apple iPhone® connects to the AMG GT models by WiFi. The vehicle then sends a host of data to the app in real-time, such as speed, gear, steering angle, time, position and acceleration.
2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C Edition 50 Exterior. The new Mercedes-AMG GT C Coupe responds even more sensitively thanks to the standard-fit active rear-axle steering, which made its debut in the Mercedes-AMG GT R and is also standard equipment on the GT C Roadster. The system allows an even better combination of agility and stability-handling characteristics that are normally in opposition to each other.
The Edition 50 will be available in and exclusive special paint finish: designo Graphite Grey Magno. To give the exterior a distinctive look, black chrome highlights are applied to the side skirt trim, front splitter, trim strips in the air inlets of the Panamericana grille, fins on the side air outlets in the front fenders, the molding on the rear diffuser and exhaust tailpipe trims. The surface of the cross-spoke AMG forged wheels has been harmonized with the black chrome elements of the exterior. A unique “Edition 50” badge adorns the rear of this model.
Up to a speed of 62mph, the rear wheels point in the opposite direction relative to the front wheels allowing the AMG GT C to turn into corners with significantly higher agility, delivering even greater driving pleasure while requiring less steering effort. Once the speed of the AMG GT C rises above 62 mph, the system points the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels for perceptibly improved handling. At the same time, the lateral force on the rear wheels builds up considerably faster on changes of direction, this speeding up the response to the steering.
