Mercedes-AMG GT R and GT C Launched In Thailand

Just a couple of weeks ago, we saw the launch of the Mercedes-AMG GT R over at Sepang. Following on from this, our neighbours up north in Thailand have just enjoyed the official launch of the Mercedes-AMG GT R and GT C, according to Bangkok Post. Much like our market, Thailand doesn't receive the regular Mercedes-AMG GT- perhaps due to its similarities to the GT S. 

For those who are unfamiliar, the GT R is the most extreme version of the GT lineup, while the GT C is the drop-top variant of the GT S. Both cars are powered by different versions of the 4.0-litre biturbo V8 that Mercedes-AMG has become synonymous with. If it's all a little confusing, let's break it down into simple figures: the GT R packs 585 PS and 700 Nm of torque, while the GT C has 557 PS and 680 Nm of torque. 

How much does it cost to own either of these mean machines in Thailand? The GT R goes for a cool 17.4 million Thai Baht (RM 2.2 million), while the GT C is available at 16.8 million Thai Baht (RM 2.12 million). In contrast, the 'regular' GT S goes for 14.9 million Thai Baht (RM 1.88 million). Naturally being the pinnacle of the Mercedes-AMG range, they are capable of commanding such high asking prices. For now, only the GT R and GT S are available for purchase in our market, with no word on the arrival of the GT C.
