Wheels of the week: Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster
Appearance: Drop top
This Merc looks mighty quick... Will it make me drive like Lewis Hamilton? It’ll give you speed and acceleration
like no other car on the road but we wouldn’t advise you treat it like an F1 car.
Why not? Because you’re not an F1 driver.
Guess that’s true. So what do we need to know about this new motor? The AMG GT C Roadster is equipped with the AMG Performance exhaust system as standard to obtain an even more emotive sound experience.
So everyone will hear us coming from a mile off? Maybe not quite that far, but the purr of the engine is one of the most impressive things about the car.
It’s a two-seater, what if three of us want to go to the beach? You’ll have to draw straws and see whom the lucky ones are to go in the car – the other will have to get a taxi.
Doesn’t seem very fair… Well, you could just drive one friend at a time, it does 0-95kph in 3.3 seconds so they won’t be waiting long for you to pick them up.
How much are we paying for one of these then? Around AED585,000.
How do we stop people putting those annoying cards on the windows when we park it? Valet it instead of parking on sand.
Could do, but sometimes they’re so fast, the windows are covered before we’ve even got out the car… Then just rev the engine and scare them off with the noise.
