SPYSHOTS: Mercedes-AMG GT facelift gets GT C rear

The Mercedes-AMG GT was given an update back in 2017, and it looks like another one is on its way based on these latest photos provided by our spies.

From the front, there doesn’t appear to be a lot that has changed given the presence of the same AMG Panamericana vertical grille and front apron design. You’ll have to examine the headlamps to spot what is possibly a new set of inner graphics but beyond that, things look rather familiar.

It’s a different story at the back, where you’ll find a brand new bumper design reminiscent of the one on the GT C – identified via the outlets in the corners. There are also quad tailpipes this time around rather than the two on the current car, which follows the theme seen on recent AMG models introduced.

No shot of the interior but expect minor updates such the latest infotainment system and display screen like on the facelifted W205 C-Class. Following the 2017 update, the M178 4.0 litre biturbo V8 makes 476 PS/630 Nm in base guise and 522 PS/670 Nm in the S. The upcoming facelift should see a slight bump in those figures but not enough to interfere with the GT C variants.

To explain, the AMG GT range starts with the base GT followed by the GT S, with both being offered as a coupe and roadster. Further up is the GT C with 557 PS/680 Nm, also available in both body styles, and at the very top is the GT R with 585 PS/700 Nm.
