Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster. This version of the AMG GT was developed to create a bridge between the AMG GT Roadster and the hardcore version AMG GT C Roadster.

Another important fact is that the soft-top roof can be lowered or raised in just 11 seconds at speeds of up to 50 k/h. The mechanism used by Mercedes-Benz is made out of magnesium, steel and aluminium in order to have a reduce weight.
Standard, the new Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster has a limited slip differential which is electornically controlled, the AMG Ride Control suspension with three modes and the AMD Dynamic Control with five settings.
