Mercedes-Benz Introduces New AMG GT S Roadster

15 May 2018

While the company has not revealed its plan for an India launch, we do hope Mercedes-AMG adds the new AMG GT S Roadster to its Indian portfolio as it will only add more fire-power to its portfolio. An output of 515bhp places the GT S between the standard 469hp GT and the GT C's 549hp.

Top speed is 188 MPH for the former and 196 MPH for the latter, which Mercedes-AMG averages to 192 MPH for the GT S Roadster as a whole. Paired to a seven speed DCT unit, the model can sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds, all the way up to a top speed of 309 kmph. The new AMG GT S Roadster is positioned between the AMG GT Roadster and the even more powerful AMG GT C Roadster.

In profile, the arched roof line of the new AMG GT S Roadster and the frameless doors is an eye-catching feature.

It doesn't gain the rear axle steering the GT C has as standard, though it can be optioned at extra cost - it also comes with the "Dynamic Plus" pack, available to add features such as dynamic engine and transmission mounts and stiffer sports suspension. It also runs a narrower body when compared to the GT C and balls-out GT R model. The GT S compromises by sharing the GT's Dinamica upholstery and the GT C's selection of steering wheel cladding, with customers receiving a choice between leather real and not real.

The AMG GT S Roadster is the tenth Mercedes-Benz vehicle to carry the AMT GT moniker.

Part of the testing included a trip to the drag strip where the Sixty managed to outmuscle a Mercedes-AMG GT sports vehicle. AMG says they share performance times despite this. There are different packages that further improve the quality of the car's interior too, like the AMG Silver Chrome package, Piano Lacquer Interior package, Exclusive trim package, AMG DYNAMIC PLUS and other standalone upgrades from Mercedes' high-performance arm.
