Mercedes-AMG GT lineup adds S Roadster variant

Official: 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster

It will bridge the performance and price gap between its predecessors, for a vehicle that some may deem just right.

As such, the performance enabled by the GT S-spec 4.0-litre engine places the auto directly between its two siblings, with a 0-62mph sprint time of 3.8sec and a top speed of 191mph.

As with other models, power comes from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, in this case making 384kW of power and 670Nm of torque - as per the equivalent GT S coupe - with maximum torque available between 1900 and 5000rpm. However, the four-wheel steering system of the GT C and GT R is an option on the GT S.

All versions are equipped with an AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed auto-manual gearbox, driving through the rear wheels. Then, it has an electronically-controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential. This means sports seats wrapped in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre with the optional extra being nappa leather.

AMG Ride Control is standard with adaptive damping. Powertrain modes are further customizable, with five settings: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race, or mix and match Individual. AMG says they share performance times despite this.

First deliveries of the GT S are due in July this year, and although Mercedes is yet to confirm prices, the current AMG GT pricing structure suggests customers should expect to pay around £124,700.

Visually, the new AMG GT S Roadster gets the signature AMG radiator grille to the long bonnet and the muscular tail end. As standard, the AMG GT S Roadster is shod with mixed tyres on 19-inch rims at the front and 20-inch rims at the rear. In this window, the GT S's chief rival is Porsche's $117,400 911 Carrera S Cabriolet.
