  • Mercedes AMG GT S Roadster Front Three Quarter Look

The AMG GT S Roadster is the tenth Mercedes-Benz vehicle to carry the AMT GT moniker.

Order books have opened for the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster, which starts from £126,730 and completes the GT model line-up.

Powering the new auto is AMG's 4.0-litre V8 biturbo petrol engine which has an output of 522bhp and 670Nm of torque.

The power is routed to the rear axle via an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G sport transmission.

Walmart eyes Flipkart IPO in as early as four years
The veto rights for the Minority Shareholders will expire if Walmart owns 85% of the outstanding shares of Flipkart. At USD 20.8 billion valuation, the USD 3 billion fund can approximately get less than 15 per cent stake.

Mercedes say the AMG GT S Roadster can already be ordered from dealers, although there's no official price yet. This monstrosity is propelled by a 6.7-litre V8 Turbo Diesel that delivers 700 hp of power and 1,000 Nm of torque - and that's not even the range topping variant. It has a top speed of 308 km/h, and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.8 seconds. An output of 515bhp places the GT S between the standard 469hp GT and the GT C's 549hp.

The company did not announce a price, but CNET expects the price to slide in between the $125,000 GT and the $157,000 GT S. Does $140,000 to $145,000 sound about right?

The driving performance of the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster is improved by the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with Adaptive Damping System, which is a standard fit in the trim. The GT S receives the GT C's electronically actuated unit, as opposed to the GT's mechanical differential. Powertrain modes are further customizable, with five settings: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race, or mix and match Individual. These are similar to the ones found in the GT C Roadster.

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. AMG high performance ceramic brakes are also available for £5,995.
