Mercedes-AMG has capped-off its flagship range with a duo of new GT Roadsters and Coupes.

The German carmaker has more than doubled its existing range of GTs with the addition of the AMG GT R and GT C Edition 50 Coupes and two new Roadsters, which brings the new GT range to a total of six.

A two-tier Roadster range includes the base GT and high-specification GT C which are priced from $283,711 before on road costs and $338,711 respectively.

Both models receive wind deflectors and heated seats to maximise drop-top enjoyment, while the GT C features Mercedes-Benz Airscarf neck-level heating.

Power for the GT Roadster comes from a 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 petrol engine that produces 350kW and 630Nm and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch auto that sends power to the rear wheels.

The GT C Roadster gets an uprated version of the same V8 that produces 410kW and 680Nm and features the same transmission as the GT.

In response to the new higher-powered Roadsters, Mercedes-AMG has boosted the outputs of the existing GT and GT S coupes which now extract 350kW/630Nm (up 10kW and 30Nm) and 384kW/670Nm (up 9kW and 20Nm) respectively out of the same V8 engine.

AMG has also brought in the AMG GT C Coupe which will be offered in Edition 50 specification until 2018 and is priced from $335,211.

The Edition 50 comes with additional AMG peformance seats and steering wheel, AMG interior Night Package, Edition 50 detailing and badging throughout, quilted Nappa leather upholstery, black chrome touches, 19-inch front and 20-inch rear alloy-wheels and high-performance LED headlights. Power is the same as the roadster version.

Mercedes-AMG will also include its 430kW/700Nm GT R Coupe performance hero in the local line-up, with pricing starting from $348,711.

All models are available from October, 2017.
