  • Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster

USA buyers will be able to buy the GT S Roadster by late 2018. The model, which is based on the standard GT S, has been slotted between the AMG GT Roadster and the AMG GT C Roadster.

Mercedes-AMG is taking pre-orders for the GT S Roadster now, although it won't be launched in the United Kingdom until July.

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

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.

It's a very bipartisan crowd and "not just a bunch of Republicans", the administration official confirmed. Truman recognized Israel, which is the reason the embassy transfer was scheduled for that date.

The open-top version of AMG's sports auto made its debut in 2016 but only in GT and GT C guises. Performance metrics will also depend on which of the five driving modes a user selects, including C (comfort), S (sport), S+ (sport plus), RACE, and the individually programmable I (individual). 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. Ceramic composite brakes are optional: 15.8 inches in front and 14.2 inches in the rear.

It doesn't gain the rear axle steering the GT C has as standard, though it can be optioned at extra cost - it also comes with the "Dynamic Plus" pack, available to add features such as dynamic engine and transmission mounts and stiffer sports suspension.

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 and additional details will be announced closer to launch.
