Mercedes teases an AMG GT roadster that looks awfully familiar

The full thing, with much better lighting, is set to debut in Paris later this month.

With the Paris Motor Show about two weeks away, we're seeing a steady stream of teasers and other hints as to what automakers will be unveiling. Today, it's Mercedes' turn to get in on the action.

The automaker released a 15-second teaser clip of an upcoming car. While some similar clips don't really give us a good idea of what's to come, this one's pretty self-explanatory. It's a Mercedes-AMG GT that's missing its top. Some folks think it'll be called the GT C, although that doesn't leave room for the hopped-up S model, unless that will be called the GT S C, which is a little clunky.

Either way, it's an AMG GT without a top, and it's likely to still possess the GT's 4.0-liter, turbocharged V8. The lighting in the video left plenty to the imagination, and we'll make sure to fill in all the blanks in person once we make it out yonder Paris way.
