Third AMG GT drop-top slots between the base and GT C version

Unveiled in 2014 as a spiritual successor for the SLS AMG and a competitor for the Porsche 911, the Mercedes-AMG GT has already spawned a number of different versions and even received a facelift in 2017. Come 2018, and the AMG GT family expanded yet again with the addition of the AMG GT S Roadster. The third roadster in the lineup, the GT S Roadster is also the ninth member of the two-door GT family, joining four coupes and two race-spec models. With Mercedes-Benz having also launched three four-door model in 2018, the AMG GT family now includes no fewer than 12 cars!

Much like in the coupe range, the AMG GT S Roadster slots above the AMG GT and below the GT C Roadster. The latter is very similar to the GT R coupe, but with a slightly less powerful engine. Much like the hard-top model, the GT S Roadster has a sportier drivetrain and also benefits from the facelift that added 15 horsepower and ten pound-feet of torque to the GT S coupe in 2017. Granted, the AMG-GT S Roadster is far from new, but it enables Mercedes-Benz to provide its customers with a choice of three open-top two-seaters.

Under the hood you’ll find the hand-built 4.0-liter V-8
Far from surprising, the AMG GT S Roadster is pretty much identical to the standard GT Roadster on the outside

Far from surprising, the AMG GT S Roadster is pretty much identical to the standard GT Roadster on the outside. While the GT C model gets slightly more aggressive features, the GT S remains unchanged, so you won’t be able to tell the difference unless you take a closer look at the badge or floor the gas pedal to feel the extra oomph. Is this an issue? No way! The standard AMG GT looks aggressive enough as it is and I can’t say that the GT C is a lot more appealing.

But if you want a few more extra features on the GT S, you can always go with the optional AMG Exterior Carbon-Fiber package, which replaces the standard front splitter, mirror caps, and rear diffuser with carbon elements. It also adds air inlet grilles in the front bumper, air outlet grilles on the hood, and the air outlet grilles behind the front fenders, in high-gloss black. The latter also include carbon-fiber fins.

The Carbon-Fiber package, which replaces the standard front splitter, mirror caps, and rear diffuser with carbon elements

Mercedes-Benz also offers the AMG Exterior Night package, which includes numerous features in high-gloss black for extra sportiness. Refinished elements include the front splitter, fins in the air inlet grilles in the front bumper, the air outlet grilles on the hood, the air outlet grilles with fins behind the front fenders, mirror caps, the trim strip in the diffuser insert, and the two exhaust tailpipes. Get both packages and you have yourself a GT C Roadster design-wise.

Finally, the GT S benefits from the same soft-top as the rest of the lineup. The three-layered fabric roof is supported by a magnesium, steel, and aluminum structure that’s light enough to keep the vehicle’s center of gravity low. Additional roll-over protection is provided by an integrated aluminum cross- member, while the inserted acoustic mat reduces noise in the cabin.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster Interior

- * Extra leather options
- * AMG Performance seats
- * Standard Airscarf system
- * Two-tone upholstery

The Airscarf system is standard but you’ll have to pay up if you want different leather upholstery
Unlike the AMG GT, the AMG GT S comes standard with the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package

The GT S cabin is also identical to the standard GT, save for a few extra features. It has the same aviation-inspired theme that debuted in the coupe model, including the wing-like dashboard with spotlight-style A/C vents in the center stack, and concave-shaped door panels. The center console is particularly interesting, as it has the AMG Drive Unit controls arranged like eight cylinders in a V layout — just like the 4.0-liter engine under the hood.

The cabin is packed with high-quality materials in just about every trim, but the GT S comes with leather and microfiber as standard. Another upgrade with the "S" is the number of materials and options available. Besides the usual all-black theme, you can also get Nappa leather with Auburn Brown, Red Pepper, and Silver Pearl accents. Or if you want less black, there are two duo-tone options that combine black with white or Red Pepper. Saddle Brown and Macchiato Beige inserts alongside black are also up for grabs with the Exclusive Nappa leather option. Finally, you can opt for yellow, grey or red contrast stitching.

Unlike the AMG GT, the AMG GT S comes standard with the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package, which adds a center console surround, air-vent bezels, and door trim in silver chrome. The optional AMG Black Piano Lacquer Interior package changes the above to a classy piano lacquer look. Other options include matte silver fiberglass, carbon-fiber, and matte carbon-fiber. The AMG Performance seats and the Airscarf heating system come standard.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster Performance

- * 4.0-liter V-8 engine
- * 515 horsepower
- * 494 pound-feet of torque
- * 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds
- * Slower than the Porsche 911 Turbo
- * Not as powerful either
- * AMG dual-clutch transmission

But mixed with a soft-top design
The 4.0-liter V-8 engine is rated at 515 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque

Much like the rest of the AMG GT lineup, the GT S Roadster gets its juice from the twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine that Mercedes-Benz introduced with the coupe four years ago. In this trim, the unit is rated at 515 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque. That’s an extra 46 horsepower and 29 pound-feet over the base AMG GT, but a 35-horsepower and eight-pound-foot deficit compared to the range-topping AMG GT C Roadster.

As you might have already guessed, the AMG GT S is a tad quicker than the AMG GT from 0 to 60 mph. While the base model achieves the benchmark in 3.9 seconds, the AMG GT S gets there in 3.7 clicks. On the flipside, the AMG GT S is slower than the AMG GT C, which needs 3.6 seconds to hit 60 mph from a standing start. The same is available when it comes to top speed, as the AMG GT S is four mph faster than the AMG GT and four mph slower than the AMG GT C at 192 mph.

The same seven-speed, AMG Speedshift, dual-clutch transmission sends the power to the rear wheels.

This roadster is fitted with the AMG Ride Control suspension as standard

This roadster is fitted with the AMG Ride Control suspension as standard. The unit uses adaptive damping adjustment which improves safety and ride comfort by adjusting the damping at each wheel. The damping settings also change depending on the driving mode selected. Like the other AMG GT model, the GT S has five: Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, Race, and Individual.

The standard equipment list also includes an electronically controlled rear differential. Integrated into the transmission housing, it further improves traction and increases cornering speed capability. Stopping power comes from the same braking system as the standard AMG GT, but you can upgrade to the optional ceramic-composite breaking system for improved response.

Sorry three-pedal fans but you’re stuck with the AMG dual-clutch transmission

Pricing information for the U.S. market is not yet available, but it’s safe to assume that just like the coupe model, the roadster version of the GT S will slot between the GT and the GT C pricing-wise. The GT S coupe requires an 18 percent premium over the GT coupe and the premium should be similar for the drop-top. With the AMG GT Roadster priced from $124,400, the AMG GT S Roadster will probably cost around $146,500. For reference, the AMG GT C Roadster fetches $157,700 before options.

Competition

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

Before the AMG GT S arrived, the base AMG GT was considered a rival for the 911 Turbo, while the AMG GT C was usually compared to the more powerful 911 Turbo S. Now that the AMG GT S Roadster is here, it’s safe to say that Mercedes has a better competitor for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet. While the AMG GT is no slouch, its 469-horsepower rating was exactly powerful enough for Turbo’s 540-horsepower, 3.8-liter flat-six. Granted the 515 horses developed by the AMG GT S aren’t enough either, but it’s a close battle. However, the AMG GT S still isn’t quite the solid performer against the 911 Turbo when it comes to 0-to-60 mph sprint, as the 911 needs only three seconds to get there. That’s more than a half-second quicker, which is noticeable in a drag race. On the other hand, the extra 25 horsepower and the quicker sprint don’t come cheap, as the 911 Turbo Cabriolet retails from $174,100. That’s nearly $30,000 more than what the AMG GT S Roadster is expected to fetch. Are you willing to pay the premium?

Conclusion

It does hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, though
But even that’s slower than the 911 Turbo as well.

Needless to say, the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster is anything but new. I mean, it’s new in drop-top form, but it’s been offered with the same specs as a coupe for a long time. The fact that Mercedes now launched it as a Roadster is far from surprising. The only thing that’s a bit surprising is that the AMG GT S arrived after the AMG GT C. Maybe Mercedes did not intend to sell an S version of the Roadster and somehow realized that it needs one after the base and C models arrived in showrooms. Whatever the case, it’s pretty obvious that Mercedes decided to round off the AMG GT lineup with three different models and this is a good thing, as the GT S moves a bit closer to the 911 Turbo performance-wise. All Mercedes-Benz needs now is a convertible version of the AMG GT R. Will we get it? It might not happen, but you never know with the company ever-expanding lineup.

  • Leave it
    • * Still slower than the 911 Turbo
    • * Where’s the R version?

Press release

Later this year, Mercedes-AMG is extending its sports car portfolio with an attractive open-air model: the new AMG GT S Roadster. With this latest addition, the AMG GT family now has a dozen members: four two-door Coupes, three Roadsters, two customer sports racing cars and three four-door Coupes. The basis for the high Driving Performance of the new AMG GT S Roadster is the combination of a lightweight aluminum spaceframe, a Handcrafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine, a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, a rear axle locking differential and a sport suspension with aluminum double wishbone axles.

"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," says Tobias Moers, Chairman of
Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The new model represents the perfect alternative for the performance-oriented AMG GT Roadster customer."

Compared to the AMG GT Roadster, the AMG GT S Roadster is rendered even more dynamic by numerous modifications to the engine, suspension, brakes, design and interior. This positions it between the AMG GT Roadster and the even more powerful AMG GT C Roadster, now providing a choice of three open- top two-seaters.

Muscular power unit for a top speed of over 190 mph
The Handcrafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo in the AMG GT S Roadster delivers an output of 515 hp and maximum torque of 494 lb-ft. This is available over a wide engine speed range from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm. The eight-cylinder power unit delivers muscular performance in all engine speed ranges, combined with high efficiency for low fuel consumption and emission levels. A sprint from standstill to 60 mph is absolved in an estimated 3.7 seconds and the dynamic power delivery continues right up to the top speed of 192 mph.

The two turbochargers of the V8 are not positioned on the outside of the cylinder banks, but inside the cylinder "V." Advantages: a compact engine design, spontaneous response of the turbochargers and low exhaust emissions thanks to optimal airflow to the near-engine catalysts. The dry sump lubrication also ensures the oil supply even with high lateral forces and allows the engine to be installed lower, thus moving the center of gravity closer to the road and forming the basis for high lateral acceleration.

Power transfer is based on the combination of a front mid-engine and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G sport transmission in a transaxle arrangement, combined with a torsionally rigid torque tube. Thanks to the wide gear ratio spread, the decidedly high torque of the V8 biturbo engine can be used to optimum effect. The weight distribution is also ideal for optimum driving dynamics at 47 percent (front) and 53 (rear) percent.

With adaptive adjustable damping as standard
The AMG GT S Roadster is equipped with the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with adaptive damping adjustment as standard. This fully automatic, electronically controlled system adjusts the damping at each wheel to the current requirements. This improves driving safety and ride comfort. The damping is adjusted individually for each wheel, and depends on the driving style, the road surface and the selected suspension setting. The ideal operating point can be selected at all times on the basis of extensive information relating to acceleration or vehicle speed, for example.

Using a switch in the center console or by selecting the drive mode, the driver is able to choose between the different damping characteristic maps "Comfort," "Sport" and "Sport+," and can thereby individually influence the driving experience.

Choice of driving experience from comfortable to very sporty
The driver is able to set the AMG GT S Roadster to his/her individual requirements using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller. Five drive modes, "C" (Comfort), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport Plus), "RACE" and the individually programmable setup "I" (Individual) are available. These allow a broad range of driving experiences - from comfortable to very sporty.

In all modes, key parameters such as the response of the engine and transmission, the accelerator characteristics, AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, the steering, the 3-stage ESP® and the position of the AMG Performance exhaust flaps are modified.

By pressing the separate "M" button in the center console, the driver can activate the manual transmission mode in any drive mode to change gear using the steering-wheel shift paddles. The suspension set-ups can also be selected specifically as needed.

Standard equipment: Electronically controlled rear differential
As standard, the AMG GT S Roadster is equipped with an electronically controlled locking differential at the rear axle, which is integrated into the compact transmission housing. Its precision and fast control raises the limit of vehicle dynamics to a new level. It not only further improves the traction of the drive wheels, but also increases the cornering speed capability. The result is that the driver is able to accelerate out of corners earlier and with more power thanks to the improved traction. The vehicle remains more stable when braking from high speed, while the limited-slip differential also improves traction.

The greatest benefit of the electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential is the even more precision and proactive control, which pushes the performance threshold higher, making it even easier to drive at the vehicle’s limits. To deliver optimum cooling, the housing of the limited-slip differential has additional cooling fins.

Large dimensions: the AMG high-performance composite braking system
The AMG high-performance composite brake system is adapted to the enhanced performance of the AMG GT S Roadster. The front axle features composite brake discs measuring 15.4 x 1.42 in with 6-piston fixed calipers, with composite brake discs measuring 14.2 x 1.02 in and single-piston fixed calipers at the rear. The brake calipers are painted in red with "AMG" lettering.

There is also the option of AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system with brake discs in size 15.8 x 1.54 in at the front axle and 14.2 x 1.26 in at the rear, together with specially painted brake calipers with "AMG Carbon Ceramic" lettering. Exceptionally short stopping distances, a precise pressure point and outstanding resistance to fading even under extreme operating conditions - the AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system offers motorsport-like braking performance and weighs around 40 percent less than with conventional composite brake discs.

Intelligent lightweight construction with high proportion of aluminum
For the body of the GT S, Mercedes-AMG has opted for an intelligent and particularly lightweight mix of materials with a high proportion of aluminum. The spaceframe and exterior parts are of aluminum, and the trunk lid too is particularly light in weight thanks to an innovative composite material. The load-bearing structure is made of SMC (Sheet Molding Compound). These high- tech composites excel with their lightweight design, high strength and outstanding surface quality. The innovative materials were developed by the Mercedes-Benz TEC factory in Sindelfingen, and brought to production maturity together with the AMG specialists in Affalterbach. The extremely lightweight front deck made of magnesium reduces the inertia ahead of the front axle, improving the agility of the Roadster.

Weight-optimized: the fabric soft top
The three-layered fabric soft top is supported by a magnesium/steel/aluminum structure of low weight, which helps to keep the vehicle’s center of gravity low. Additional roll-over protection is provided by an integrated aluminum cross- member, while the inserted acoustic mat improves noise comfort.

Authentic sports car experience embodying sensual purity
From the expressive AMG radiator grille to the long hood and the muscular tail end, the two-seater guarantees a pure sports car experience even when stationary. The flat front section and forward-sloping radiator grille make the Roadster appear to hug the road. At the same time this shape lowers the vehicle’s back-pressure point, enhancing the flow of cooling air and the car’s aerodynamic performance.

The front bumper has a jet wing design that emphasizes the car’s width, making it sit flatter on the road. The large outer air inlets guarantee the supply of cooling air to the engine. The LED High Performance headlamps offer more safety at night and an unmistakably sporty and distinctive look. Thanks to LED technology, they illuminate the road more effectively than conventional headlamps – with lower energy consumption.

Viewed from the side, the arched roof line (when the soft top is closed) and the frameless doors are eye-catching features. The surfaces and lines of the side wall flow into the tail end with a dramatic tapered effect. The long hood with its pronounced powerdomes, the greenhouse which has been moved far back, the large wheels and broad tail end also contribute to the distinctive looks. As standard the AMG GT S Roadster is equipped with mixed tires on 19-inch rims at the front and 20-inch rims at the rear.

The high-gloss chrome features in the standard-equipped AMG Chrome package include the front splitter, the fin on the air inlet grilles in the front bumper, the fins in the fenders and the trim strip in the diffuser.

AIRPANEL active air management system
The active air regulation system AIRPANEL included as standard is a particular technical highlight. Vertical louvers at the bottom of the front bumper are opened and closed electronically by means of an electric motor in around one second to guarantee the required amount of cooling. Constantly achieving the ideal position calls for highly intelligent and fast control.

During normal driving with no increased cooling demand, the louvers are closed for reduced drag and the air is directed at the underbody. This improves the aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicles. Only when certain components reach predefined temperatures and the air demand is particularly high do the louvers open to allow the maximum cooling air flow to the heat exchangers.

As another active aerodynamic component, the Roadster features an extendable rear spoiler. This reduces lift at the rear axle at higher speeds. With its broad shoulders and expressive taillamp graphics, the rear end enhances the emotional overall appearance.

High quality and exclusivity: the interior
The interior design echoes the design lines of the exterior. The dashboard places a firm emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing. Thanks to the high beltlines, concave door paneling, a dynamic, rising center console and the low seating position, the driver is integrated into the cockpit and feels fully attuned to the Roadster. The sports seats, the Performance steering wheel and the instrument cluster also demonstrate outstanding precision and high-quality materials.

The performance seats are upholstered in black MB-Tex man-made leather/DINAMICA microfiber as standard. Numerous other materials and colors are also optionally available:

Nappa leather in Black
Nappa leather in Auburn Brown/Black
Two-tone Nappa leather in Red Pepper/Black,

Choice of high-quality interior trim
As standard the AMG GT S Roadster comes with the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package. This creates particular highlights with trim in high-quality silver chrome. The package consists of a center console surround, air vent bezels and trim strips in the door armrests in silver chrome.

The AMG Black Piano Lacquer Interior package is available as an option. Trim surfaced in luxurious, shining piano lacquer accentuates the high quality of the interior. The package consists of a center console surround, air vent bezels and trim strips in the door armrests in piano lacquer look.

Also optionally available are AMG trim elements in matte silver fiber-glass, carbon-fiber and matte carbon-fiber. The Exclusive Trim package further enhances the AMG trim and brings even more individuality to the interior. It consists of two trim strips in the door armrests in a version dependent on the chosen AMG trim.

AMG Performance seats with AIRSCARF and climate control
The standard AMG Performance seats provide even more lateral support with more heavily contoured backrest and seat cushion side bolsters. The AMG Performance seats of the Roadster are also equipped with the AIRSCARF neck- level heating system, which makes open-air driving enjoyable even in low outside temperatures.

The air vent is seamlessly integrated into the seat’s head restraint area. To meet the individual preferences of customers, the airflow intensity can be set in three stages.

Customers wishing to enjoy comfortable temperatures even on very hot summer days can also opt for the ventilated seats, which are available for the AMG Performance seats. The intensity of the climatization can be set in three stages.

Large choice of wheel/tire combinations
As standard the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster is fitted with AMG 10-spoke wheels painted in Titanium Grey, with 9 x 19 inches (front) and 11 x 20 inches (rear) and tire sizes 265/35 R 19 and 295/35 R 20 respectively. A host of different design and color variants are also available as optional equipment, for example ultralight forged wheels in a cross-spoke design painted in matte black with high-sheen rim flange or in polished titanium grey, both with fully integrated wheel bolt covers.

Tailor-made optional equipment for any customer requirements
On the basis of the extensive standard equipment, the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster offers wide scope for individual wishes.

The AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package ensures even higher driving dynamics and even sportier handling characteristics. In addition to dynamic engine and transmission mounts it includes an enhanced suspension profile, enhanced steering profile and a wider peak horsepower band. The components in detail:

AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfiber
Dynamic engine and transmission mounts
Yellow highlights in the instrument cluster
Enhanced steering profile
Wider peak horsepower band in "M" and "RACE" modes: 6,000 – 6,500 rpm
Enhanced sport suspension profile

The AMG Exterior Carbon-Fiber package lends more dynamism to the open two-seater from any angle. In this case the front splitter, exterior mirror housings and the diffuser in the rear bumper are in the motorsport material carbon-fiber. Moreover, the air inlet grilles in the front bumper are in high- gloss black, as are the air outlet grilles on the hood and the air outlet grilles behind the front fenders, which also have carbon-fiber fins.

With the AMG Exterior Night package, numerous features in high-gloss black enhance the expressiveness and sportiness of the Roadster: the front splitter, fins in the air inlet grilles in the front bumper, the air outlet grilles on the hood, the air outlet grilles with fins behind the front fenders, the exterior mirror housings, the trim strip in the diffuser insert and the two exhaust tailpipes are painted in high-gloss black.
