Driving a supercar with wind in your hair is an experience only a lucky few ever get to feel. So Mercedes has gone ahead and chopped off the roof of their flagship supercar, the AMG GT and also have teased the roadster in a video for us enthusiasts.

To be unveiled in Paris before the end of 2016, the AMG GT C will be powered by the same 4.0-litre twin turbocharged petrol V8 engine that develops 503bhp of power in the AMG GT S that is available in India. The power is sent to the right set of wheels through a customised seven-speed automatic gearbox. From the teased video and spy images that have been floating around, it is evident that Mercedes will use an electrically operated fabric roof,  unlike other Mercedes convertibles, to keep the weight and complexities in check.

According to Tobias Moers, chairman Mercedes-AMG, in spite of the structural losses from ditching the roof, the AMG GT convertible will be a sharp handler owing to its inherently stiff frame. Some tweaking of the suspension should ensure that the GT convertible remains a true blue sportscar. The AMG GT C will be positioned between the AMG GT coupe and the AMG GT R globally. Which means, when it comes to India, you can expect a price tag between Rs 2.25 crore to Rs 2.5 crore.
