£127K Mercedes AMG Roadster goes on sale

Share

For those of you keeping score at home, Daimler and Mercedes-Benz have just announced the availability later this year of the Mercedes AMG GT S roadster.

The GT S Roadster should land on Australian shores in 2019 with pricing to be confirmed at a later date. However, the four-wheel steering system of the GT C and GT R is an option on the GT S.

The Mercedes-AMG GT family has a new member in the form of the GT S Roadster, bringing the total number of drop-top variants to three.

As in the AMG GT S Coupé, the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine delivers 522 metric horsepower (515 bhp) and 670 Nm (494 lb-ft) of torque (available from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm). Like all GT models, the GT S Roadster is fast: 0-62mph takes 3.8 seconds and top speed is 191mph.

Despite that fee, the Post says that "talks between Rooney's representatives and the MLS side have accelerated in recent weeks".

Of course, this thing would be an overkill during a Zombie Apocalypse, but imagine trying to outrun a volcanic eruption, or a tsunami, or err... a Zombie driving a Mercedes-AMG GT-S.

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. The brand has not revealed any details about the new GT S Roadster coming to the country.

The drive modes offered by the vehicle are Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race and Individual. The LED High Performance headlamps offer more safety at night as they illuminate the road more effectively than conventional headlamps.

The distinction performance-wise between the GT S and GT C, output and performance figures aside, comes from the chassis: the GT S rides on narrower rear tyres, is softer sprung and forgoes the rear-axle steering.
