Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster on the way

Third topless AMG GT to sit between GT and GT C versions

Mercedes has announced an addition to its Mercedes-AMG GT line-up of high-performance cars – the GT S Roadster. The new version will sit between the existing GT and GT C versions when it arrives later this year.

The GT S Roadster is powered by the same V8 petrol engine as other GT models, albeit with 515bhp – in contrast, the standard GT Roadster produces 469bhp, while the top-spec GT C version has 549bhp. Like all GT models, the GT S Roadster is fast: 0-62mph takes 3.8 seconds and top speed is 191mph. Key performance features fitted as standard over the base GT include an electronic limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers.

Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster review

The options list is filled with temptations for would-be buyers – the AMG Dynamic Plus pack adds tauter suspension, active engine mounts, quicker steering and an Alcantara steering wheel for a sportier driving experience. Four-wheel steering can also be specified, improving low-speed maneuverability but also high-speed stability.

Mercedes hasn't yet announced pricing for the GT S, but it’s likely to sit fairly evenly between the two existing models in the GT range, at around £124,000. First deliveries are expected in July.
