After the SLS and its Roadster version have been discontinued, Mercedes no longer had a high-performance convertible offering. However, a few days ago they showcased a short film that featured the profile of a new convertible, basically confirming the rumors about a GT Convertible. Well, a few days after that, Mercedes have made available a set of pictures that fully reveal the upcoming 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster and its lesser sibling, the GT Roadster.

The two cars are set to debut in the upcoming weeks at the Paris Auto Show when Mercedes are going to reveal all the details about the two cars.

All GT cars get a 4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 as standard with various amounts of power. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster gets the same engine as the GT R. This will offer 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. Despite the impressive amount of power, though, it will only hit 60 MPH in around 3.7 seconds, and it will go up to a maximum top speed of 196 MPH. These are very close numbers to those set by the GT-S and that is mostly because the GT-C is quite a bit heavier than the coupe.
