Mercedes say the AMG GT S Roadster can already be ordered from dealers, although there's no official price yet. The GT takes 4 seconds and the C 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. 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 brake calipers of the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster come in red finish with AMG badges.

Just like the Coupé version, the GT S Roadster gets various engine, suspension and design modifications to distinguish it from the base GT, with the 4-litre twin-turbo V8 tuned to 384kW and 670Nm. Talking about numbers, you get 515bhp and 670Nm which enables the auto to hit 100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds and top out at nearly 310 kmph.




The GT S is a performance packed machine that features a lightweight aluminum space frame along with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The GT S receives the GT C's electronically actuated unit, as opposed to the GT's mechanical differential.

In the cabin of the Roadster the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster can be detected Artico artificial leather (genuine leather is available as an option), sports seats AMG, silver chrome accents. Powertrain modes are further customizable, with five settings: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race, or mix and match Individual.

Visually, the new AMG GT S Roadster gets the signature AMG radiator grille to the long bonnet and the muscular tail end.

Pricing for the supercar will be announced with its launch in July. The LED High Performance headlamps offer more safety at night as they illuminate the road more effectively than conventional headlamps.
