AMG GT Roadster range expands with 384kW 'S'

Sitting between the lower-spec GT and higher-spec GT C, the GT S serves as a new mid-range offering, with performance and specifications echoing its position in the GT Roadster family. 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. As a result, the GT S covers the 0-62mph dash in 3.8 seconds en route to a top speed of 191mph.

When the Roadster version of Mercedes-AMG's GT sports vehicle was first announced back in 2016, the company elected not to offer an "S" version, rather leaving customers to choose between the 350kW base model and the more brutal GT C with 410kW and various performance parts from the GT R. The acceleration figure matches the GT S coupe though the top speed is 1 miles per hour lower. The GT S features an electrically-controlled limited slip differential and adaptive damping - neither of which are fitted to the standard GT Roadster - while the wheels measure 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear. This feature adjusts the damping at each wheel to the current road situation. A total of five drive modes are on hand, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, Race, and Individual. An output of 515bhp places the GT S between the standard 469hp GT and the GT C's 549hp. They house composite brake discs that measure 390mm at the front and 360mm at the back.

Additionally, some renders of the smartphone have been leaked by a case maker, confirming several speculations around the handset. The OnePlus 6 will feature a 6.3-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 for an aspect ratio of 19:9.

Inside, the GT S features sports seats trimmed in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre as standard, with nappa leather optionally available, along with silver chrome interior highlights and Airscarf neck-level heating.

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.
