Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster
Sky and road, in perfect balance.
Mercedes-AMG GT Roadsters
If the Mercedes-AMG GT is a reinvention of the pure sports car, there's only one way to make it even purer: Open it up. With the GT roadsters, the handcrafted AMG performance that's born on the track has been unleashed into an open sky.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers, engineers and racers who live for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
Compresses the air, to blow you away
Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8s place their twin turbos between their banks for quicker response. Dry sump design moves their oil supply aside, for lower engine mounting. In the AMG GT, now with 523 hp, 60 mph arrives in 3.7 seconds. In the 550-hp AMG GT C, just 3.6 seconds. Disclaimer
Clings to pavement, touches the sky
Forged aluminum dominates the 4-wheel double-wishbone AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with 3-stage damping. Coil-overs at the rear are hub-mounted for extreme precision. The GT C adds active rear-wheel steering. AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in the throttle, shifting, chassis, exhaust and more.
Tuned to your desires, sharpens on demand
The AMG GT C's standard AMG DYNAMIC PLUS Package flexes its muscle freely. Dynamic engine and transaxle mounts use electromagnetic fluid that stiffens progressively, to keep handling precise during aggressive moves. The standard steering wheel is fully wrapped in grippy DINAMICA microsuede.
Balanced on every axis, in every action
The 7-speed, multimode AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT transaxle is rear-mounted, to help create the GT's ideal 47:53 front/rear balance. A carbon-fiber driveshaft links it to the front-mid-mounted V8. Lightning-quick shifts, an electronic limited-slip differential and torque vectoring precisely deliver power to pavement.
Sculpted to harness the wind
Top up or down, the long-hood proportions express the purity of a roadster with a clarity of purpose. From the vertical-bar grille to an active rear spoiler, airflow under, over and into the body is managed with strategic brilliance. Every element contributes to performance, and conspires to seduce.
Tailored to transform and transcend
It takes just 11 seconds to change the AMG GT from a closed, composed coupe into an all-out open-air super sports car. Tailored from three layers and available in three colors, the soft top powers up or down even at speeds up to 31 mph. A fixed see-through wind deflector helps keep the open cabin calm.
Equipped to embrace driving
Sculpted AMG Performance seats combine sporting support with enduring comfort. Performance controls fall readily to hand, with color display buttons arrayed in a V on the wide console. A spectrum of cabin appointments, wheel choices, paint hues and styling packages let you make a powerful personal statement.
Engineered for less weight, and less waiting
From its aluminum spaceframe to its polymer/carbon-fiber decklid, an AMG GT Roadster is built to maximize performance by minimizing mass. Its onboard technology responds accordingly, from quick-thinking controls for the running gear to advanced cabin tech that keeps you connected and in control.
Responds at a touch, reveals at a glance
A console controller and 10.25-inch central screen deliver entertainment, navigation and apps with animated displays and intuitive menus. The 12.3-inch digital instruments offer multiple gauge designs and exclusive AMG readouts of turbo boost, oil temperature, speed and gear selection.
Shifts the seasons
With a sonorous exhaust note you can unleash at the touch of a button, you're going to want to drive top-down as often as possible. Along with heated seats, standard AIRSCARF® can envelop your neck and shoulders in warmed air, turning a cool evening into the perfect time for an open-air drive.
A virtual trainer in your dash
Using performance driving data from your car, AMG Track Pace can turn your car's central screen into a virtual driving instructor. Its ability to store and display key performance data during track driving helps you analyze your skills and hone them even sharper. Disclaimer
An intelligent mix of materials
The GT's spaceframe achieves high torsional and longitudinal rigidity with exceptionally low weight. Engineered from the outset as a roadster, there's no weight penalty over the GT coupe. Aluminum makes up 97% of the body and frame by weight, along with magnesium, carbon fiber and advanced polymers.
A protective, proactive eye on the future
Radar-based Active Brake Assist can help you avoid some frontal collisions, and can even initiate braking. ATTENTION ASSIST® can help sense a drowsy driver. Front and rearview cameras, PARKTRONIC, and available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help smooth your moves from the driveway to the highway. Disclaimer
