The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT is exciting. It's exhilarating. It's thrilling. It is everything you could ever expect from a sports car and more. As a coupe, it's perfect, but when you shape it into a roadster, it's legendary. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT Roadster is the first topless variation of the iconic supercar since its previous alias as the AMG® SLS GT and you can talk to us today about putting one in your driveway.
The GT Roadster is the entry-level GT roadster when compared to the GT C Roadster, but there is nothing entry-level about it. From the 4.0L biturbo V8 engine to the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, through the mechanical limited-slip rear differential to the staggered back tires, the GT Roadster is a rocket on wheels. In fact, the GT Roadster is more powerful than the GT Coupe!
The 7-Speed automatic dual-clutch transmission has been modified for 2018 to allow for faster shifts, capable of launching the GT Roadster from 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds.
The Engine in the GT Roadster is the same size as the GT Coupe, but it is modified to make 13 more horsepower and 22 lb-ft more torque, allowing for an identical 0-60 time.
Large amounts of power calls for heavy duty support. To keep up with the 188 MPH top speed, the GT Roadster features AMG® Sport Suspension with DYNAMIC SELECT® driving modes.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT Roadster comes with a fabric soft-top roof that can open in close in as little as 11 seconds, even at 31 MPH. A specially-designed roll bar keeps both occupants safe, leaving drivers to worry about whether the fabric top should be black, red, or beige. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT Roadster is an instant classic that will appreciate in value for many years to come.
