Mercedes-AMG GT lineup adds S Roadster variant

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster

Powered by a 515bhp and 494lb ft-producing turbocharged V8, the new convertible GT S sits between the entry-level 469bhp GT Roadster and the 549bhp GT C Roadster.

When it arrives on United Kingdom roads in August 2018, the soft-top will complete the AMG GT range of performance cars and take up a mid-point in the soft-top line-up between the 476hp GT Roadster and 557hp GT C Roadster. That is paired to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G transmission.

Its spec mirrors that of the Coupe, in that it's slightly more serious than the standard Roadster, but less so than the C (there is no GT R Roadster).

The GT S Roadster delivers 522 hp and 670 Nm of torque. The S takes 3.8 seconds.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel: 'We should have beaten Tottenham Hotspur'
Don't leave us Toby, we need you big man! If we can create that feeling, everything happen in football. His side have not finished campaigns well and he will want his side to turn things around this season.

All of that spin, routed through a seven-speed dual-clutch trans, translates into a zero-to-100 km/h acceleration time of just 3.7 seconds, a tenth of a second slower than the C.

Basically, the GT S Roadster bridges the performance gap between the GT and the GT C Roadsters. It also gets sports seats in black Artico man-made leather/Dinamica micro-fibre comes as standard, Performance steering wheel and a digital instrument cluster. Powertrain modes are further customizable, with five settings: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race, or mix and match Individual. These are similar to the ones found in the GT C Roadster.

Again finding middle ground, the AMG GT S Roadster weighs 1625kg, which is 55kg over its roofed GT S sibling. Another important element on the exterior of the vehicle is its three-layered fabric soft top with strong supports. The front apron in jet wing design compliments the width of the auto as it sit flat on the road.

Part of the testing included a trip to the drag strip where the Sixty managed to outmuscle a Mercedes-AMG GT sports auto. However, the rear-steer system can be added through the options list, provided you specify the Dynamic Plus Package.
