The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster is set to arrive sometime in 2017 and has been spied testing.

It would have been a safe assumption that the “C” in GT C stood for convertible, but according to a leaked road map, Mercedes-AMG is also readying a GT C Coupe, hinting that a new model will likely be slotted between the standard AMG GT and the AMG GT S. It’s also a possibility that the new model could slide in between the GT S and the recently announced GT R, although based on the German automaker’s nomenclature, it should be a lower trim model under the GT S.

Spy photographers have caught the convertible variant testing once again, but this time we are treated with photos from all angles, exposing the soft top that will be used. Naturally, it will have a different roof line compared to the current coupe, but the AMG GT C Roadster is shaping up to be an enticing drop-top offering in the luxury sports car market.

The model could debut later this year, possibly at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show, where many convertibles go to drop their top.
