Test Drive: 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster

Morning temperatures hovering around minus seven degrees didn’t seem particularly conducive to convertible testing, especially for testing an exotic droptop sports car. But when some rare local seat time in a near-$200K 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster becomes available for a few days, if it’s not snowing, then you’re not complaining.

While the base GT Roadster comes to the table with a serious 469 hp, the C designation bumps that up to a seismic 550 hp.

Sunshine lit up the sky as well as the raging fall colours of the trees, the temperatures warming up eventually to low double-digit territory. That’s still frosty enough to keep most convertible roofs firmly latched above their drivers, especially at the kind of wind speeds this turbocharged V8 can generate in a firm prod of the right pedal. But the Mercedes-AMG GT C lives in a strange duality where aggressive high performance and pampering luxuries co-exist in a seeming internecine battle for supremacy as the dominant personality trait of this range-topping Mercedes-AMG Roadster.

And the aggressive high-performance side is way, way out ahead.
