Visual cues that separate the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster from the other variants include inlet grilles for the front bumper, diffuser, and fenders as well as a new trim for the front splitter. It's the third variant to join Affalterbach's drop-top sports vehicle lineup, and it sits between the current GT and GT C in terms of performance and price. 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. This feature adjusts the damping at each wheel to the current road situation. The auto also comes standard with an electronically controlled locking differential at the rear axle, which is integrated with the rear-mounted transmission (transaxle). In addition to the aforementioned differential lock, the auto also comes with dynamic engine and trasmission mounts and composite brake rotors measuring up to 15.4 inches at the front and clamped down by six-piston calipers.

Just in time for summer, this new Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster is a hotter version of their gorgeous convertible. This means sports seats wrapped in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre with the optional extra being nappa leather.
