Order books have opened for the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster, at prices starting from £126,630.

When it arrives on UK roads in August 2018, the soft-top will complete the AMG GT range of performance cars and take up a mid-point in the soft-top line-up between the 476hp GT Roadster and 557hp GT C Roadster.

Power for the GT S Roadster is supplied by a 4-litre V8 biturbo petrol engine, producing 522hp – 46 more than the AMG GT version – and 670Nm of torque. This translates to a 0-62mph sprint time of 3.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 192mph. Combined cycle fuel economy is quoted at 24.6mpg with CO2 emissions of 262g/km.

All versions are equipped with an AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed automatic gearbox, driving through the rear wheels.

The AMG-GT S Roadster will be supplied as standard with an AMG performance exhaust system, 19-inch alloy front wheels and 20-inch versions at the rear, the AMG Ride Control suspension with adaptive damping, Active Air Control system, LED headlamps and an automatically extending rear spoiler.
