Mercedes Finally Shows Us the 2019 AMG A35 in the Metal at the Paris Motor Show

Mercedes Finally Shows Us the 2019 AMG A35 in the Metal at the Paris Motor Show

The hotly-anticipated hot hatch from the three-pointed star finally gets out of the wraps

Mercedes-Benz finally showed the AMG A35 in the metal at the Paris Motor Show. Even though the car made an online debut a couple of weeks back, this is the first time we’ve seen it in its physical form. People have been waiting on the ropes for this car to arrive after the A-Class hatchback was launched a few months ago and it was well worth the wait.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class is Here and It's Still Ugly

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class is Here and It’s Still Ugly

The technology isn’t bad, though

The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is here. If nobody remembers the previous generation, that’s okay, because Mercedes has made their new compact minivan crossover taller, longer, and more in-line with the current Merc styling trends.

The new B-Class just dropped at the Paris Motor Show while everyone’s looking at the new EQC and the brash-looking A35 AMG. But the B-Class doesn’t deserve to be overlooked - within its tight minivan-crossover class niche, only BMW’s 2-Series Active Tourer provides any real competition.

Some may argue that there isn’t much market left for these compact minivan crossovers, as people look towards SUVs of varying shapes and sizes as grocery-getters and family carriers. But Mercedes hopes there is. The problem with the B-Class is that it’s not particularly good looking - you can thank the headlights from the A-Class for that - but, at least, it looks better than the visual atrocity that is the 2-Series Active Tourer.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Throws a Party Ahead of Paris Debut

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Throws a Party Ahead of Paris Debut

Merc’s new luxury SUV has the makings of a segment challenger

Mercedes has a strong presence at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, and one of its main offerings is the GLE-Class SUV. The SUV’s unveiling took place at the Hotel Molitor as part of the German automaker’s “Meet Mercedes” event. More than 400 guests were on-hand to witness the GLE’s world première, becoming the first group of people to see Mercedes’ new luxury SUV in the flesh. As a new model, the GLE is bringing a lot to the SUV table, including a new operating concept, a new engine lineup, and a suite of innovative driver assistance systems. The SUV will hit dealerships in the U.S. and Europe sometime in early 2019. Pricing details will be revealed closer to its launch date.

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 Showed Up in Paris Wearing a Stunning Blue Tuxedo

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 Showed Up in Paris Wearing a Stunning Blue Tuxedo

It’s lean, mean, and has a take-no-prisoners attitude

The color blue never goes out of style, so it’s fitting that in the Fashion Capital of the World, Mercedes-AMG unveiled the feisty A 35 in a resplendent blue shade that accentuates its sporting good looks. The hot hatch officially made its debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show with a point to prove. While it does trace its roots to the A-Class, the AMG 35 is nothing like the model it’s based on. It looks angrier and more aggressive, and more importantly, it has a powerful 2.0 turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can embarrass the socks off anyone who underestimates its performance capabilities. The Mercedes-AMG A 35 doesn’t have a price yet, but those details will be announced sometime in 2019. Unfortunately, it’s not coming to the U.S.

The 2019 Mercedes B-Class Might not be Pretty, but it has Some Awesome Technology and Drivetrain Options

You may not want to be seen in one, but gadgets will keep you entertained along the way

Mercedes has unveiled an all-new B-Class practical family car, and no, this new model isn’t very pretty either, continuing in its predecessors’ tracks, but there are plenty of other reasons you may want to buy one. I’m pretty sure it was never really bought based on styling, so that takes a back seat to the features it does offer its occupants.

Merc Officially Names New Hypercar Mercedes-AMG ONE

Merc Officially Names New Hypercar Mercedes-AMG ONE

Seems like a lazy attempt to name what is otherwise an awesome hypercar

The Mercedes-AMG Project One is now officially known as the Mercedes-AMG ONE. The name change is the latest in a series of new developments surrounding the hypercar as it prepares to make an appearance at the 2018 Paris Motor Show next week. In addition to the new name, Mercedes-AMG also divulged more information about the hypercar’s aerodynamic capabilities. Production of the Mercedes-AMG ONE is expected to begin soon. The automaker plans to build just 275 units of the 1,000-horsepower machine, with all 275 units already spoken for.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE

Staying ahead of the pack

Just a few years have passed since the GLE first hit the scene, but Merc isn’t waiting around to usher in a new generation for the 2019 model year. Bringing revamped, off-roader-inspired styling, a new interior design, a vast array of tech-heavy features, an updated engine line, and a new 48-volt mild hybrid system, the latest GLE is locked and loaded to take on the mid-size luxury SUV segment, with rivals like the BMW X5 and Audi Q7 set squarely in the brand’s crosshairs.

2019 Mercedes-AMG A35

2019 Mercedes-AMG A35

Stuttgart’s answer to the BMW M140i and Audi S3

The Mercedes-AMG A35 is an intermediate, performance-oriented model of the fourth-generation A-Class hatchback. Offered for the very first time since the subcompact was introduced in 1997, it slots between the A250 trim of the standard A-Class and the range-topping AMG A45.

The AMG A35 is Mercedes’ response to intermediate performance-oriented hatchbacks from BMW and Audi. Both Germans brands have been offering models like the M140i and S3 for quite a few years now, and they’ve been very popular with customers who a bit more than what the standard models offer, but don’t want to go all out on proper M or RS cars. The AMG A35 joins the battle with more than 300 horsepower on tap, sportier looks, and all the state-of-the-art tech that Mercedes-Benz debuted on the regular A-Class.

2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic Unveiled

2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic Unveiled

Over 300 hundred ponies and a bad attitude

Following a round of teasers, Mercedes-AMG has finally revealed its latest fire-breathing hatchback - the 2019 A35 4Matic.

“Body shell, suspension, all-wheel drive, transmission, driving programs, fine tuning - every detail has been designed for maximum driving dynamics without compromising on everyday comfort,” Merc announces.

The main party piece can be found under the hood, where Mercedes stuffed the hot-to-trot A-Class with a turbocharged four-cylinder making as much as 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Properly applied, its enough to send the A35 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a scorching 4.7 seconds, while top speed clocks in at 155 mph. The boost snail is a twin-scroll unit for sharper response.

Routing the muscle is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which feeds an AMG-tuned, electro-mechanical 4Matic AWD system. The torque split can vary between front-wheel drive only, to a 50:50 split front-to-back.

Keeping it shiny side up are MacPherson struts up front and a four-link for the rear. There’s plenty of aluminum to keep it all light, while a set of adaptive dampers can be had for a little extra outlay. Large four-pot brakes clamp the front, with brake rotors that measure in at 13.8 inches in front and 13 inches in the rear.

The A35 looks the part of a hooligan thanks to AMG’s classic styling chops, which includes a unique grille in the nose, aero-optimized 18-inch wheels in the corners, and a large spoiler mated to a pronounced diffuser in the rear.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find the latest MBUX infotainment goodies, plus AMG’s signature upholstery treatment and a flat-bottom steering wheel. A fully digital instrument display provides the feedback.

Look for the 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic to strut its stuff early next month at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.

Mercedes-AMG A35 reveals its wing in new teaser

Mercedes-AMG A35 reveals its wing in new teaser

The big debut is coming, folks

Mercedes-Benz seems to enjoy playing mind games with their fans and customers, testing their ability to wait for their upcoming releases while putting out a number of revealing sneak peeks. This is the case with their new A35 AMG which will be shown off to the public for the first time at the Paris Motor Show that kicks off on October 4th.

With each new Mercedes-AMG launch, you really have to take a moment to soak in all the details in order to appreciate the job done by the people in Affalterbach. That’s why each new image that Mercedes-Benz leaks out of their new hot hatch, the buzzing A35 AMG, keeps the hype alive as we look forward to a peek inside.

In the latest couple of images released by the German automaker, we can feast our eyes with both rear-end view and a view of the nose, albeit only half of each – hopefully they don’t have a good half and a bad half! What we get is what we’ve been expecting with Mercedes beefing up the body kit of their current A-Class with bigger air inlets and a host of purposeful winglets on either side. It’s the same story at the rear where we get dual exhausts, a diffuser for underbody aerodynamics and a generously-sized wing almost identical to that on the outgoing A45.

Mercedes will also unveil a new A45 early next year but, until then, we have to contend with its little brother who’s looking to scare away its neighbors: the likes of Audi’s S3, BMW’s M140i or Volkswagen’s Golf R. Granted, you’ll have a hard time telling the two apart if you don’t glimpse of their front ends, since the A45 will feature the Panamerica grille while the A35 is stuck with this twin-blade design we’ve become familiar with on lower-tier Mercedes models.

Keep reading to find out more of what we know about the A35 AMG.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Unveiled

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Unveiled

Merc’s Q7 and X5 fighter gets a substantial update

Mercedes-Benz just spilled the beans on its brand-new 2020 GLE, revealing specs and pics of the luxury SUV’s latest and greatest bits and pieces. Let’s begin with the exterior, where we find the GLE is now even more SUV-like than before. Complementing the new look is a host of chrome embellishments, while intelligent LED lighting illuminates the way forward. The new looks is also functional, as the aero now slices through the atmosphere with a Cd of 0.29, a figure Merc claims as best-in-class. Under the flared arches, you’ll find wheel sizing ranging between 19 and 22 inches in diameter.

The latest GLE also adds 3 inches to the wheelbase, which helps substantially with regard to passenger room. New for 2020 is six-way electric adjustability for passengers in the second row, plus 12.3-inch infotainment screens as standard with crisp 720p resolution. What’s more, the onboard systems now support gesture control, and offer semi-autonomous features like Active Stop-and-Go Assist, Active Brake Assist, and Cross-Traffic Assist.

Under the hood, the base model GLE comes equipped with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder, which is turbocharged to produce upwards of 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Next in line is a turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder making 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. If you want even more of the go stuff, Merc is also sure to release the high-powered 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 very shortly. A 4Matic AWD system makes the grip.

Finally, the GLE comes with new E-Active Body Control active suspension system with a mild-hybrid 48-volt power source to keep it all shiny side up.

Look for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE to make its big public debut at the Paris Motor Show this coming October, with an on-sale date slated for sometime next year.

Here's the 2019 Mercedes GLE Before You're Supposed to See It

Here’s the 2019 Mercedes GLE Before You’re Supposed to See It

Is this 2019 Mercedes GLE heading to the Paris Motor Show?

The Mercedes-Benz GLE debuts in less than a month at the Paris Motor Show, but you get to see it even sooner thanks to these leaked images courtesy of Russian outlet Autoreview.ru. This specific model looks like it’s on its way for transport, possibly to Paris in preparation for its world debut. It features very little camo or padding, with nothing more than white tape on the headlights and taillights and some tape covering the emblems. Mercedes can try to hide it, but we know what this thing really is. It does resemble that resent teaser image that was released, but it also looks a lot more like a facelift than a generational model if you actually look at it closely.

Be that as it may, Mercedes seems to have a lot planned for the 2019 GLE. The interior should get a fairly healthy update while all engine options should be offered with at least a hint of extra power. We expect to see a two-speed transfer case on all-wheel-drive models, but rear-wheel-drive models should also be available. Don’t hold out for a manual transmission, though, as word has it that the 2019 Mercedes GLE will only be offered with a nine-speed automatic. The new model should incorporate off-road suspension equipment, at least as an option, as Mercedes really has to keep up with Range Rover this time around. With that in mind, expect entry-level models to boast around 310 horsepower from a 3.5-liter V-6, while the range-topping AMG GLE63 will pump out incredible amounts of power from a hand-built, 4.0-liter, V-8.

Anyway, for now, go ahead and enjoy the few pictures we have in the gallery below. You never know when Mercedes will request the be removed so don’t waste any time and be sure to check out our speculative review on the 2019 Mercedes GLE and the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 to help scratch the itch while you wait for the Paris Motor Show to kick off.

2015 Mercedes-AMG C63

2015 Mercedes-AMG C63

The C63 is up for a facelift and we’re finally getting a first look at the prototype

AMG began meddling with the C-Class in 1995 — one year after the C-Class debuted — when it released the C36 AMG and its 268-horsepower V-6. The 1998 model year brought about the release of the C43 AMG, which featured a larger V-8 engine rated at 302 ponies. AMG then followed that up with the 349-horsepower C32 AMG in 2002, and then with the 362-horsepower C55 AMG in 2005. Finally, in 2008, the C63 AMG sent the sedan into 450-horsepower territory with a huge 6.2-liter V-8 tweaked to generate 451 horses. With the standard 2015 C-Class having arrived in dealerships in early 2014, Mercedes-Benz is rolling out a brand-new iteration of the AMG-prepped C63.This time around dubbed Mercedes-AMG C63, with the Germans dropping the Benz moniker from the official name, the new-generation vehicle marks the beginning of a new era for the sedan.

Much like its predecessor did in 2008, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 gets a brand-new engine in the form of a biturbo, 4.0-liter V-8. The unit is identical with the one previously launched in the AMG GT sports car and comes not with just more horsepower, but with improved fuel efficiency as well. Read on for the full details surrounding AMG’s new high-performance compact.

Update 5/26/2017:The Mercedes C-Class is up for a mid-cycle update, and now we’re finally getting the first look at the facelifted version of the C63. The spy shots still show some camo, but give us an idea of what to expect later this year when the updated C-Class makes its debut. Check out the spy shots section below to hear about what we know so far.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain

Mercedes-Benz launched its very own A6 Allroad

The fifth-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class, also known as the W213, was unveiled at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and went on sale for the 2017 model year. A significant departure from its predecessor, it uses a brand-new architecture and styling language based off the S-Class full-size sedan. More comfortable and efficient than ever before, the new E-Class also debuted a handful of new Mercedes-Benz technologies, including a semi-autonomous system. The sedan was followed by a beefed-up AMG version and a wagon variant with two-door coupe and cabriolet models also set to follow. But unlike its predecessor, the W213 also spawned crossover-like model. It goes by the name E-Class All-Terrain and it is aimed at the likes of the Audi A6 Allroad.

When Mercedes-Benz called 2016 "the year of the SUV" and announced a further expansion of its already large collection of SUVs and crossovers by 2020, most people expected more niche models like the GLC Coupe or the Mercedes-Maybach GLS. As it turns out, Mercedes-Benz was considering competitors for the Audi A4 and A6 Allroad as well. The news initially came straight from Mercedes-Benz vice president of sales and product managements, Matthias Luehrs, who said that the company is essentially "looking at everything." What was just a possibility in 2015 became certainty in 2016, when Mercedes-Benz unveiled its Audi A6 Allroad fighter ahead of the Paris Motor Show.

Dubbed E-Class All-Terrain, the new vehicle follows in the footsteps of Audi’s midsize Allroad model, blending the styling of the utilitarian, yet still sexy E-Class wagon with the taller ride height and cladding of a crossover. Described as a "flexible all‑rounder for unpaved roads, family and leisure time," the All-Terrain gives the German brand access to a previously unexplored niche and likely opens the door for a similar model based on the C-Class too. But until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the brand-new E-Class All-Terrain.

2016 Mercedes‑Benz "Generation EQ" Concept

2016 Mercedes‑Benz "Generation EQ" Concept

An all-electric concept that should have brands like Tesla, Chevy, BMW, and Nissan worried

Despite the long list of manufacturers that skipped the Paris Auto Show, this year’s show still turned out to be pretty good. We got to lay eyes on cars like the Renault Trezor, the Lexus UX Concept, and the Volkswagen I.D. concept. As far as the internet is concerned, the Honda Civic Type R concept pretty much stole the show, but over at the Mercedes booth was this gem of a concept that is being called the “Generation EQ.” Said to represent a whole fleet of electric cars that Mercedes will produce in the coming years, the EQ features a scalable platform, 402 horsepower from an all-electric drivetrain, and a range of up to 310 miles. Able to hit 62 mph in less than five seconds, Mercedes claims that this concept not only has all-wheel drive but is also near-production ready, so we may even see a production variant in the near future.

If the concepts that have debuted over the past couple years have taught us anything, it’s that the cars of the future will be somewhat crazy and the interiors will look more like something out of a science fiction movie than the reality that we’re used to. But, being almost production ready means that the level of science fiction inside the EQ is kept to a full roar. Sure, that might hurt the Trekkie inside of you a bit, but don’t tear up just yet, the cabin is still pretty wild for something that appears to be exceptionally functional.

Gorden Wagener, the Head of Design for Daimler AG, said, “Generation EQ is hot and cool. Its fascination lies in a reinterpretation of our design philosophy of sensual purity, the aim being to create an avant-garde, contemporary and distinctive electro-look. At the same time, the design of the visionary show car, which has been reduced to the essentials, reveals an alluring progressivity.”

On preliminary inspection, this concept looks very promising and is sure to please the masses if it ever makes it into production. So, before that happens, let’s take a good look at this concept and figure out just what it’s all about.

Mercedes-AMG's Growth Proves That Pure Performance Cars Are Still Thriving

Mercedes-AMG’s Growth Proves That Pure Performance Cars Are Still Thriving

Next on the agenda: a hybrid hypercar and the AMG GT C Coupe

The announcement of a Mercedes-AMG hybrid hypercar may have grabbed the headlines during Mercedes-AMG’s Media Night presentation of the AMG GT and GTC Roadsters, but lost in the hoopla surrounding the hypercar’s announcement is the other new model that AMG is preparing to add to its growing AMG GT family: the AMG GT C Coupe.

AMG boss Tobias Moers confirmed the arrival of the GT C Coupe moments before unveiling the GT C Roadster. He didn’t dive into the details behind the next model up in the AMG GT family, but it is reasonable to at least expect some striking similarities to the GT C model. Moers did say that it will carry identical technical specifications to the roadster model so at the very least, expect it to carry a 4.0-liter, biturbo, V-8 engine that spits out 557 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. Likewise, the GT C Coupe is also likely to get some of the technology that was used on the roadster version. That includes, among other things, a modified front axle and an all-new rear axle with rear-wheel steering.

The upcoming AMG GT C Coupe also touches on an even bigger point that Moers made during the GT C Convertible’s presentation. Despite the interest and the time spent pursuing electrification and autonomous driving (Mercedes even counts itself in this group), pure performance brands are still thriving, and AMG is living proof of that. AMG-branded models are selling like crazy with almost 70,000 units being sold in 2015 and this year, the company is expected to have 48 different performance models in the market, with at least 10 newcomers slated to arrive this year. That’s the widest range of any performance brand in the business today. That success is a testament to the company’s pursuit of giving its customers the best performance cars on any price range, but just as important, it also shows that there’s still plenty of room for these ball-busting machines in the garages of customers all over the world.

A Preliminary Tale Of The Tape Between The Mercedes‑Benz "Generation EQ" Concept And The Tesla Model X

A Preliminary Tale Of The Tape Between The Mercedes‑Benz "Generation EQ" Concept And The Tesla Model X

How does Mercedes’ electric SUV concept stack up against the segment king?

Up until this point, the premium electric SUV market has been dominated by the Tesla Model X. But Mercedes-Benz has taken the first step to putting an end to the Model X’s dominance with the launch of the Generation EQ Concept, the German automaker’s preview piece for one of the foundational models of its future electrified lineup.

Predictably, my first instinct upon seeing the Generation EQ Concept was to compare it to the Tesla Model X. I know it’s too early to say how this comparison is going to be considering that the Mercedes EV SUV is still in concept guise. For one, it’s hard to compare the two physically because the production model of the Generation EQ will likely look different from one Mercedes has presented at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

But there are some noteworthy comparisons that can be made now in various categories, including power and performance, range, and technology.

Based on the numbers that Mercedes has released, the Generation EQ’s combined output of 402 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque is impressive. But it still doesn’t measure up to the Model X 90D’s output of 518 horsepower (combined), more so with the P90D’s titanic output of 762 horsepower (combined). At least in this category, the Model X takes the cake, quite handily even.

Here’s the question though: is the Model X still superior to Merc’s presentation of the Generation EQ Concept?

Mercedes-Benz Confirms F1-Inspired Hypercar In Paris; Offers First Look

Mercedes-Benz Confirms F1-Inspired Hypercar In Paris; Offers First Look

Promises no compromise in terms of performance appeal

Earlier this year we stumbled upon rumors about

Mercedes

AMG planning to develop a supercar that would compete against the Aston Martin AM-RB 001. In September, another report said that the German brand will unveil the vehicle at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Mercedes-Benz just held its preliminary press conference at the show, and even though it had no hypercar to present, it did confirm that an extreme performance vehicle is indeed underway.

Following a short speech about the brand’s new record sales for the year and a presentation of the new GT C Roadster, Thomas Weber revealed that AMG is working on a performance hybrid vehicle featuring the company’s Formula One drivetrain technology. As expected, Weber didn’t have any specific details to share, but said that the new hypercar will show "how we will take our performance car into the future" and that there will be "no compromise in terms of emotional appeal."

During Weber’s speech, the big screen behind him displayed what appeared to be a simple profile sketch of the vehicle. If this is indeed a drawing of the actual car, it will feature a Le Mans prototype-inspired design with massive fenders, prominent side skirts, and LMP1-style roof scoop that transforms into a fin toward the rear wing.

There’s no word as to when this hypercar will arrive, but more info should become available as the Paris Motor Show kicks off tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates!

2017 Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard

2017 Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard

Because you don’t need to sacrifice comfort or luxury to be protected

When you’re wealthy and in power, people want to kill you. So, how do you get out of the mansion or office without fear of being shot up or blown up by a roadside bomb? You ride in something like the car you see here, the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard. The S 600 Pullman Guard is based on the S600 Guard but has been extended to accommodate four rear passengers. The S 600 Guard was the first non-civilian vehicle to be rated with ballistics protection level VR10, but due to the extended length, the Pullman Guard is only rated at VR9. Be that as it may, it’s still certified for blast resistance in accordance with Directive ERV 2010 and, at ballistics rating VR9, it can sustain multiple shots from high-powered weapons such as the M60 machine gun, M14 rifle, or FAL FN chambered in 7.62 x 51mm NATO (.308).

To go along with this protection, the occupants of the S 600 Pullman Guard ride in the definition of luxury, comfort, and exclusiveness. There are two executive seats in the rear for the man of the hour and his VIP guest and two fold-down seats for the less-important – you know military advisors, translators, etc. With healthy doses of leather inside as standard, and extended length and height, there’s lots of open space for conducting business.

The world is a crazy place, and high-profile people need the utmost in protection. That’s why cars like the Audi A8L, BMW 7-Series High-Security, and the S 600 Pullman Guard exist. The bombs can go off, and the bullets can fly, but chances are that if you’re inside, you’ll be just fine. And, if not, at least you’ll die comfortably, right? Either way, let’s dive on in and take a closer look at the new Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster

The Mercedes-AMG GT wasn’t only the successor to the Mercedes SLS AMG; it was also the first model to sport a Mercedes-AMG badge and the first model that got your blood pumping with that 4.0-liter V-8. It was a bit smaller than the SLS, so it targeted a completely different market of buyers, but it was still quite Amazing. And, despite the rumors that Mercedes wasn’t going to make a roadster variant of the GT, we’ve finally been graced with not one but two. The one you see here is the range-topping model and goes by the name GT C. The best part is that it’s a lot more than a GT coupe with its top chopped off. See, this baby takes on its own look and even gets some extra horsepower to go with it.

Now, don’t get it twisted, the rumors that Mercedes wasn’t going to make a roadster were pretty much dismissed when earlier this year when we got spy shots of a drop-top testing in the wild. So, we knew that one would eventually make its long-awaited debut. But, we didn’t know that we were going to get two different models. With that said, let’s dive on in a take a good look at the amazing Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster

Mercedes’ assault on the 911 continues with a convertible version of its new sports car

The Mercedes-AMG GT was introduced in 2014 as a successor to the SLS AMG. The second sports car developed entirely in-house by AMG, the GT is the first vehicle to wear the "Mercedes-AMG" nomenclature and the first to use the brand-new, twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine. Although it replaces the SLS AMG, the AMG GT is actually smaller and aimed at a different market, with the Porsche 911 being its most important competitor. Following the release of the hotter GT R version in 2016, Mercedes-Benz unleashed the Roadster version ahead of the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Although at some point it was rumored that Mercedes would skip on building an AMG GT Roadster in order to protect its slow-selling SL-Class Roadster, the drop-top was confirmed earlier in 2016 by a batch of spy shots and a leaked strategy document that said it would arrive in dealerships in 2017.

The fact that Mercedes also developed a roadster version of the sports car makes a lot of sense since Mercedes-AMG developed the GT with the Porsche 911 Turbo in mind. With Stuttgart also offering a drop-top version of its range-topping model, Mercedes was compelled to do the same in order to remain competitive. As expected, the Roadster uses the same greasy bits to move about, including the twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V-8.

Updated 09/15/2016: Mercedes dropped the official details on the new AMG GT Roadster.
