  • 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster

The AMG GT S Roadster brings the grand total of AMG GTs up to 12: four two-door Coupés, three Roadsters, two customer sports racing cars and three four-door Coupés.

Over a year after the launch of the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, it has been officially announced that a new model will be made available.

A quick glance at the nomenclature will let you work out that this GT S Roadster is a GT S with its roof chopped off, which means Mercedes' 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 with 515bhp and 494lb/ft of torque (that's 35bhp more than the GT and 46bhp less than the GT C), enough for a 0-62mph sprint in 3.7 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG is taking pre-orders for the GT S Roadster now, although it won't be launched in the United Kingdom until July. The model, which is based on the standard GT S, has been slotted between the AMG GT Roadster and the AMG GT C Roadster. It's the third variant to join Affalterbach's drop-top sports auto lineup, and it sits between the current GT and GT C in terms of performance and price. The factory claims a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds with 192 miles per hour top speed. Performance metrics will also depend on which of the five driving modes a user selects, including C (comfort), S (sport), S+ (sport plus), RACE, and the individually programmable I (individual).

Other upgrades include a rear axle locking differential, a sport suspension with aluminum double wishbone axles, and an optional high-performance ceramic composite braking system. They house composite brake discs that measure 390mm at the front and 360mm at the back. While the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package is available as standard, owners can also opt for the carbon fibre or high gloss black trims for the AMG trim elements. In addition, it allows the engine to be installed lower, moving the center of gravity closer to the road for high lateral acceleration.
