Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster: Bridging the GT and GT C Gap

Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster: Bridging the GT and GT C Gap

Mercedes-AMG is adding an "S" trim to its GT Roadster line, to slot in between the base GT and the high-performance GT C, the German automaker said mid-May. An output of 515bhp places the GT S between the standard 469hp GT and the GT C's 549hp. It has a top speed of 308 km/h, and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.8 seconds. Talking about numbers, you get 515bhp and 670Nm which enables the vehicle to hit 100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds and top out at nearly 310 kmph. Then, it has an electronically-controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential. The 670Nm peak torque also sits between the other two - 10Nm below the GT C but 40Nm above the GT. In addition, five drive modes are available, including Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, Race, and Individual.

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

Mercedes-AMG has had quite a fruitful year with more than half a dozen updated and new products such as the AMG CLS53, AMG E53 Coupe, AMG E53 Convertible Hybrids, AMG G63, AMG C43 4Matic Facelift, AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, AMG C 63 S Coupe and the AMG GT63 S 4-Door Edition 1.

Paralleling the GT's coupe range - available in GT, GT S, GT C and GT R trims - the Roadster's new GT C variant will split the difference between its other two now available versions. However, the rear-steer system can be added through the options list, provided you specify the Dynamic Plus Package. These are topped off by AMG's 19- to 20-inch wheels wrapped in performance tires.
