Goodbye QP Hello AMG GT C Roadster

The wife has been bugging me about getting her a convertible for a year now. She insisted on having the Gran Turismo convertible and there was one at the Maserati place here that they have had for a year. My wife has been longing for it this entire time. So I was telling her to check other brands and about a month ago she started looking at other convertibles and decided she liked the AMG. So we went and drove the Roadster today and picked up this 2018 for a nice discount, not as much as we got off the QP when we bought it in 2017 but a good discount. This car had all the right options and the right interior color combo. So we still have three white cars.

I like the way the car is laid out inside and it has a really great sound for a turbo. Not as good as my 488 but different and still very throaty and nice. She loves it, no more Portofino for her. This is about $100k cheaper as well so I am not complaining, plus I like it.

GT C is a fantastic car; great choice. I have a GT R because I track it, but if I wanted an AMG GT variant for street only use it would be a GT C.

Gorgeous car! I'm trying to find a baby blue sports car for my GF right now. Toss up between a 2019 Vantage or a 570s spider!

I looked at a AMG GT R but not the GT C. Perhaps one can be had and wrapped in Yas Marina blue?
