New Mercedes-AMG GT Family Member Added- Meet GT S Roadster
Mercedes-AMG extended its sports car portfolio with the reveal of the much anticipated 2019 GT S Roadster. Now, we can say that the company’s fresh addition completed the standard GT range. Here’s the basis for the high Driving Performance of the new AMG GT S Roadster: an exciting V8 biturbo engine, a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, a lightweight aluminum spaceframe, a rear axle locking differential as well as a sport suspension along with aluminum double wishbone axles. The aforementioned 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 is capable of 522 hp and 494 lb-ft of torque which translates to 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph. The sport transmission sends all this power to the rear axle, with an electronically controlled rear differential all set up for the right thrills.
The immense power requires control, that’s why the automaker provided plenty of systems on board. Customers will get AMG Ride Control technology as standard with adaptive damping being controlled through a switch in the center console between three modes, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. While the new GT S Roadster comes fitted with the AMG high-performance composite braking system as standard, the drivers are welcome to get a high performance ceramic composite braking system. The ride is shod in ultra light 19-inch wheels up front and 20-inch ones at the rear.
