Mercedes-AMG reveals 2019 GT S Roadster

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster

It has four two-door coupes, three four-door coupes, two customer race cars, and two roadsters.

"The new model represents the flawless alternative for the performance-oriented AMG GT Roadster customer".

Power goes to the rear wheels via the AMG Speedshift DCT 7G seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, mounted in a transaxle arrangement for nearly-ideal weight distribution of 47 (front) and 53 (rear) percent. In the standard model, this produces 469 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, while the C version ups the ante to 550 hp and 502 lb-ft.

The standalone AMG range of cars has only been with us for five minutes, but this - the new AMG GT S Roadster - represents the tenth version of an AMG auto you can buy.

Mercedes-AMG has just revealed the 2019 GT S Roadster which will sit between the lower-spec GT and higher-spec GT C with the GT S serving as a midrange offering. The acceleration figure matches the GT S coupe though the top speed is 1 miles per hour lower.

Like the most powerful GT Roadster in the lineup, the GT S will feature a standard AMG Ride Control suspension with adaptive damping.

Standard equipment also includes the electronically controlled limited-slip differential at the rear axle, and AMG high-performance composite braking system (ceramic composite brakes are optional). This positions it between the GT Roadster and top-end drop top, the GT C Roadster.

The cabin looks similar too, adopting standard features such as the sport seats upholstered in black Artico artificial leather/Dinamica microfiber, and the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package.

Pricing information for the GT S Roadster will be announced closer to the market launch in late 2018, but we can expect a slight premium on the $132k starting price of the GT S coupe.
