Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster is Stuck in the Middle

Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster is Stuck in the Middle

Mercedes-AMG already has enough GT sports cars to make your head spin.

As a result, it slots in-between the existing AMG GT Roadster and the AMG GT C Roadster.

Every other GT S spec splits the difference between GT and GT C. The all-important 0-60 sprint takes 3.7 seconds in the GT S, compared to 3.9 in the base vehicle and 3.6 in the GT C. Top speed is said to be 192 miles per hour, right between the GT's 188 mph rating and the GT C's 196 mph.

All versions of the GT Roadster pack a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine from AMG.

It'll keep running on to an estimated top speed of 192 miles per hour, Mercedes-AMG says.


The power is routed to the rear axle via an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G sport transmission. It has more horsepower and torque than the former, and grabs the fancier suspension of the latter. It has four two-door coupes, three four-door coupes, two customer race cars, and two roadsters. The "M" manual transmission mode is included, locking the gearbox to the paddle-shifters.

A performance exhaust system, electronically controlled rear differential, and beefier brakes are also shared with the range-topping GT C. Accordingly, the GT S features standard composite brake discs measuring 15.4 inches up front with six-piston fixed calipers. They're finished in red, with AMG lettering.

Mercedes-AMG offer the AMG high-performance composite braking system as standard with an AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system available as an optional extra. They also tip the scales at around 40-percent less than the conventional brakes.

The roof of the auto is a three-layered automated soft-top supported by a lightweight structure combining aluminum, magnesium and steel, which helps to keep the vehicle's center of gravity low. Additional roll-over protection is provided by an integrated aluminum cross-member, while the inserted acoustic mat improves noise comfort. LED headlamps are standard, as are 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inches at the rear. Now, Mercedes is adding a third version of the roadster that fills the gap between the base model and the GT C. AMG Performance seats are standard, with AIRSCARF neck heating courtesy of vents in the headrest.

In all, it brings the AMG GT family to twelve, including the upcoming AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
