2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster revealed with 515 horsepower on tap

To plug the gap between the 469 horsepower AMG GT and the 549 horsepower GT C roadster models, Mercedes has introduced a third convertible variant of the German carmaker’s two-seat sports car. The Mercedes-AMG GT S is no longer only available in the coupe version; now you can get a roadster version with 515 horses under the hood. The S-spec AMG GT uses the same 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 as its siblings. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. According to Mercedes, the GT S Roadster can do 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 192 mph.

The GT S Roadster comes standard with adaptive dampers and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential. However, buyers have the option to pick the AMG Dynamic Plus package, which brings firmer suspension, active engine mount and quicker-responding steering. Like the other AMG GT roadster models, the GT S gets a power-folding fabric top along with Airscarf neck-level heating system and ventilated seats. Nappa leather upholstery and carbon fiber interior trim are available as option extras. The Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster will the hit the American market later this year; but the German marque is yet to announce the price.
