Mercedes-Benz is expanding its AMG GT line-up with the GTC Roadster a convertible blending power and comfort. With a 550 horsepower and a top speed of 316 km/h, the GTC is one of the most powerful cars in its category. To celebrate the launch of the new Mercedes AMG GTC Roadster, Signé takes the roadster for a spin and exclusive photoshoot on the streets of Miami.
Compared to the other GT models the GTC is heavier which gives it more stability, allowing the car to take turns in a smoother manner. The rear wheel drive convertible also boasts rear-wheel steering, a system that turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front wheels at low speed and in the same direction at high speed, enhancing the roadster’s agility and stability.
“Sport car enthusiasts experience emotions that are often lost in day-to-day life. The AMG GTC Roadster embodies the perfect symbiosis between the typical AMG Driving Performance and unlimited top-down driving,” explained the brand during its Miami launch event.
To put this beast to the test, we visited some iconic locations of the Magic City. Our first stop was the Miami Design District; an art district created over 15 years to act as a bridge between artists and the public.
We stopped at the massive “One Day At A Time” Canvas created by Miami-based artist, Abstrk, to support cancer. Our second stop was the 2×4 Vortex, a collaborative studio founded in 1994 with the one goal in mind creating bold graphic works that question the nature and conventions of design. Last but not least we decided to shoot on the iconic Ocean Drive with the Pacific Ocean as our backdrop.
The AMG GTC Roadster is a smooth ride, and we enjoyed every minute of it, whether it was in the city or on open roads.
