Mercedes-Benz’s high-performance AMG division celebrated its 50th birthday in style.

The German automaker brought out a refreshed AMG GT model at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, including the new GT C Coupe that is set to slot between the GT S and AMG GT R. The Mercedes-AMG GT C delivers 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine paired to a seven-speed, dual-clutch Speedshift gearbox. The GT C benefits from a wider track and active rear-wheel steering as well as an electronically-operated AMG Ride Control suspension system and a limited-slip differential for extra traction.

All models of the 2017 AMG GT get a new front grille that gives the luxury sports car a lower, wider and more aggressive style. The company also announced a new AMG Track Pack option for the entire lineup that takes advantage of Apple’s iPhone so owners can analyze their driving performance and share it on social media.

The new Mercedes-AMG GT is expected to arrive dealerships in the U.S. late next fall.
