515bhp Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster arrives

515bhp Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster arrives

When it arrives on United Kingdom roads in August 2018, the soft-top will complete the AMG GT range of performance cars and take up a mid-point in the soft-top line-up between the 476hp GT Roadster and 557hp GT C Roadster. 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. It has a top speed of 308 km/h, and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.8 seconds.

For those of you keeping score at home, Daimler and Mercedes-Benz have just announced the availability later this year of the Mercedes AMG GT S roadster. 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). It sits slightly below the GT C but above the standard GT.

Basically, the GT S Roadster bridges the performance gap between the GT and the GT C Roadsters.

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). The auto also adopts the brake discs of the GT C Roadster. 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. It further adds to the AMG GT lineup, fattened last week by the GT 63 S Edition 1 sedan four-door coupe. Performance metrics will also depend on which of the five driving modes a user selects, including C (comfort), S (sport), S+ (sport plus), RACE, and the individually programmable I (individual).

Coming to the important part, the roof is a three-layered automated soft-top supported by a lightweight structure combining aluminum, magnesium and steel, which helps to keep the vehicle's center of gravity low. AMG says they share performance times despite this.
