Mercedes-Benz Unveils AMG GT S Roadster

Mercedes-Benz Unveils AMG GT S Roadster

The S version is tucked between the GT and the GT C, both in performance and price. Unsurprisingly, this number sits between the estimated time of 3.6 seconds for the GT C Roadster and 3.9 seconds for the base model.

The GT S jumps from 0 to 60 miles per hour in an estimated 3.7 seconds, more quickly than the GT (3.9 seconds) but a touch slower than the GT S (3.6 seconds). The auto also comes standard with an electronically controlled locking differential at the rear axle, which is integrated with the rear-mounted transmission.

Says Mercedes-AMG Chairman Tobias Moers: "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". The acceleration figure matches the GT S coupe though the top speed is 1 miles per hour lower. Mercedes-AMG has again added that option to its growing line of GT sports cars, the latest of which is the topless GT S Roadster.

Justice Isa writes: "The approval of the Honourable Chief Justice is also not a substitute for an order of the Supreme Court". He said impeachment removes qualified impeachable officers while quo warrantoousts unqualified public officials.

As with the tin-top, the Roadster has an aluminium-intensive body and structure, while the three-layered soft-top roof is supported by a lightweight structure of magnesium, steel and aluminium.

Mercedes-AMG is already taking orders for the new GT S Roadster, with the market launch scheduled for July 2018.

Despite being a convertible, the GT S Roadster is still a serious sports vehicle. In the rear, there are 14.2-inch brake discs and single-piston fixed calipers. Other standard features include 19-inch rims at the front and 20s in the rear, a Silver Chrome Interior package, AMG performance seats with neck-level heating, and AIRPANEL active air management system for improved aerodynamics. The company also offers an AMG carbon-fibre package and an AMG Night package as a few optional packages for the exterior. Pricing and additional details will be announced closer to launch.
