Mercedes-Benz has announced prices for its latest Mercedes-AMG GT models, the Roadster and R Coupe.

Orders are now being taken for the GT Roadster at prices starting from £110,145, and the range-topping GT R coupe at £143,245.

GT roadsters are all powered by a 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine, producing 476hp in the stock model and 557hp in the GT C variant, sending it through 62mph from rest in 3.7 seconds compared to the 4.0 seconds of its sister.

Both roadsters include a three-layer fabric roof that opens or closes electrically in around 11 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph, and is available in black, beige or dark red colours.

Standard equipment on the GT Roadster includes 19-inch alloy wheels, the distinctive AMG ‘Panamericana’ grille, a wind deflector, performance exhaust system, heated AMG sports seats with the Airscarf neck heater and black Nappa leather upholstery.

£110,145 buys the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster.

GT C Roadster variants grow their wheels to 19 and 20 inches (front and back), while among the other added extras are Burmester surround sound audio, the Parktronic parking aid with reversing camera, a Keyless-Go entry package and an Active Air Control system – this uses flaps in the lower front bumper that adjust according to the car’s speed, increasing high-speed stability and reducing drag.

The AMG GT R Coupé is being pitched as a potential rival to the McLaren 570S, and at an almost identical price. Its 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine generates 585hp and 700Nm of torque, which gives the car a 0-62mph time of 3.6 seconds.

Its standard equipment package includes AMG sports bucket seats, a carbon fibre roof, the Panamericana grille, bespoke body styling and a rear aerofoil, yellow brake calipers, the performance exhaust system; 19/20-inch alloy wheels (front/back), sports tyres, Parktronic, a performance steering wheel and an AMG Interior Night package that comprises black door sills; steering wheel gear shift panels in black; black inserts below head restraints and a black strut in the luggage compartment.

Among the extensive options for the GT R is the ‘green hell’ paint finish worn by the launch car, for an extra £7,500.
