The Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster joins the cars of the three-pointed star brand that allow open-air driving. The new soft-top has been developed and set up accordingly for its position in the range, so here the venerable hot-V 4-litre V8 is good for 515bhp and 494lb ft of torque, meaning the 0-62mph sprint is dispatched in 3.8 seconds and a 191mph top speed is achievable. Either way, the GT S Roadster has plenty of get up and go.

That's right, there are now a dozen AMG GT sports cars, and like the two other GT Roadster models, the GT S Roadster boasts a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Top speed for the GT is 188 miles per hour while the GT S is rated at 192 mph and the GT C at 196 mph. Then, it has an electronically-controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential. It also gets sports seats in black Artico man-made leather/Dinamica micro-fibre comes as standard, Performance steering wheel and a digital instrument cluster.

AMG Ride Control is standard with adaptive damping. "The new model represents the flawless alternative for the performance-oriented AMG GT Roadster customer".

Mercedes-AMG is now offering the running gear of the GT S with the Roadster body, plugging a gap in its sports auto line-up for a middle-ground drop-top.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but with its performance being situated between that of the GT and GT C Roadster, a price between the GT and GT C's respective MSRPs of $124,400 and $157,000 is likely.

The drive modes offered by the vehicle are Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race and Individual. AMG says they share performance times despite this. In this window, the GT S's chief rival is Porsche's $117,400 911 Carrera S Cabriolet.
