515-HP Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster Revealed



Mercedes¬-Benz finally filled in the roadster void with the all new 2019 AMG GT S Roadster. Both the AMG coupe and sedan are offered in at least three variant including GT S, the roadster was left behind with just GT and GT C trims. Now the gap between those two drop-top models has been filled.

Slotting between the GT and GT C, the new S Roadster is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine delivering 515 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque. That’s a 35 hp and 8 lb-ft increase from the base GT model while still maintaining a sizeable 46 hp and 29 lb-ft buffer between it and the range-topping GT C.

Though the GT S Roadster’s engine output is not a direct split between the GT and GT C, its performance numbers are. Accelerating from 0-60 mph takes 3.7 seconds, which sits in right in the middle of the base model’s 3.7 seconds and GT C’s 3.6 seconds. Same situation with its top speed of 192 mph while it’s siblings are limited to 188 mph and 196 mph.

Aside form a power boost compared, the new GT S Roadster also receives a few performance upgrades. Those mentioned by AutoBlog includes an adaptive suspension system, electronically-controlled limited slip differential, variable-sound exhaust, staggered 19-inch front and 20-inch wheels, and a “Race” driving mode.

Expected to go on sale later this yaer, the halfway GT S Roadster should be priced somewhere between the GT ($125,000) and GTC ($160,000).

Glad to see that this model is getting more than just a styling change, and I think MB nailed the roadster look. They've definitely priced this variant towards the top end, but with the improvements they've made to the suspension and LSD, it seems to be justified.
