Introduced in September 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT definitely stood up on its own as a worthy successor to the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Fast forward to two years, its maker expanded the range to a total of six versions.
Now, the brand has the Mercedes-AMG GT, Mercedes-AMG GT S, Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, Mercedes-AMG GT C, Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster and Mercedes-AMG GT R for customers. Note that we did not include the Mercedes-AMG GT3 here because it is only exclusive to racing teams.
