  • 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster

All the above figures place the GT S smack-bang between the GT and GT C Roadsters on paper. It will bridge the performance and price gap between its predecessors, for a vehicle that some may deem just right. When racing the AMG, the Sixty ended up winning in the race, which was interesting considering Mercedes says it has a 0-60 miles per hour time of 3.7 seconds (two seconds quicker than the Sixty). Looks are the same as the base GT save for wheels, making the GT S a bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Powered by a 515bhp and 494lb ft-producing turbocharged V8, the new convertible GT S sits between the entry-level 469bhp GT Roadster and the 549bhp GT C Roadster.

Like the rest of the GT range, the GT S drives its rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Those will include the AMG GT, AMG GT S and AMG GT C, boasting 476 hp, 552 hp, and 557 hp, respectively. The S uses an electronically controlled rear differential.


To keep the ride comfy, regardless of upholstery spec, the GT S adopts the C's adaptive damping system, which can be toggled between Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ modes.

Pricing and additional details will be announced closer to launch. The LED High Performance headlamps offer more safety at night as they illuminate the road more effectively than conventional headlamps.

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

Standard open sports auto Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster includes a system AMG Ride Control and AMG Dynamic Select, effective brake mechanisms of composite materials, led optics and original alloy wheel rims, dimensions 19 and 20 inches. In this window, the GT S's chief rival is Porsche's $117,400 911 Carrera S Cabriolet.
