Mercedes-AMG is extending its AMG GT sports car portfolio with an attractive open-air model, the new AMG GT S Roadster.

16 May 2018 | International News : Germany


With this latest addition, the AMG GT family now has a dozen members; four two-door Coupes, three Roadsters, two customer sports racing cars and three four-door Coupes. The basis for the high driving performance of the new AMG GT S Roadster is the combination of a lightweight aluminum spaceframe, a handcrafted AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, a rear axle locking differential and a sport suspension with aluminum double wishbone axles.

The standard AMG Silver Chrome Interior package consists of a centre console surround, air vent bezels and trim strips in the door armrests in silver chrome
Compared to the AMG GT Roadster, the AMG GT S Roadster is rendered even more dynamic by numerous modifications to the engine, suspension, brakes, design and interior. The interior design echoes the design lines of the exterior. The dashboard places a firm emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing.

Thanks to the high beltlines, concave door panelling, a dynamic, rising centre console and the low seating position, the driver is integrated into the cockpit and feels fully attuned to the Roadster. The sports seats, the performance steering wheel and the instrument cluster also demonstrate outstanding precision and high-quality materials.

This positions it between the AMG GT Roadster and the even more powerful AMG GT C Roadster, now providing a choice of three open-top two-seaters.

The handcrafted AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo in the AMG GT S Roadster delivers an output of 515bhp and maximum torque of 670Nm. This is available over a wide engine speed range from 1,900 to 5,000rpm. The eight-cylinder power unit delivers muscular performance in all engine speed ranges, combined with high efficiency for low fuel consumption and emission levels. A sprint from standstill to 100km/h is absolved in an estimated 3.8 seconds and the dynamic power delivery continues right up to the top speed of 310km/h.

"With the AMG GT S Roadster, our AMG GT family has gained another exceptionally sporty member that combines high driving dynamics with an emotional open-air experience," says Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The new model represents the perfect alternative for the performance-oriented AMG GT Roadster customer."
