Adjust Comment Print

The AMG GT S Roadster is the tenth Mercedes-Benz vehicle to carry the AMT GT moniker. That is paired to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G transmission. Looks are the same as the base GT save for wheels, making the GT S a bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing.

The GT S Roadster delivers 522 hp and 670 Nm of torque. The S takes 3.8 seconds.

Drivers can expect to launch from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds and eventually top out at 192 miles per hour.

Softball to Host NCAA Regional as No. 11 Overall Seed
Regional, Drake (43-10) and BYU (35-20) are joined by Albany (30-24) and the No. 1 overall team in the tournament, OR (47-7). The Division I tournament bracket was released late Sunday night with Tennessee (45-12) earning the No. 10 overall seed.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but with its performance being situated between that of the GT and GT C Roadster, a price between the GT and GT C's respective MSRPs of $124,400 and $157,000 is likely. The S uses an electronically controlled rear differential. It also runs a narrower body when compared to the GT C and balls-out GT R model. It's the same features found on the GT C minus the rear-wheel steering. The Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster will be available to order in time for summer. Another important element on the exterior of the auto is its three-layered fabric soft top with strong supports. The front apron in jet wing design compliments the width of the auto as it sit flat on the road.

"With the AMG GT S Roadster, our AMG GT family has gained another exceptionally sporty member that combines high driving dynamics with an emotional open-air experience", stated AMG Chairman, Tobias Moers, in the car's press release.

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.
