Mercedes AMG GT S Roadster Front Three Quarter Look AMG GT Roadster range expands with 384kW 'S'

Styling-wise, the AMG GT S Roadster features the same aero kit as its coupé sibling and offers the option of mixed tires sized 265/35 R19 at the front and 295/30 at the rear.

Those figures are enough to see the auto reach 100km/h from stand still in just 3.8 seconds before topping out at 308km/h - and remember, this one isn't even the fastest variant.

Power goes to the rear wheels via the AMG Speedshift DCT 7G seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, mounted in a transaxle arrangement for nearly-ideal weight distribution of 47 (front) and 53 (rear) percent.

Everything you need to know about the OnePlus 6
The device will feature a 6.28 inch full HD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2280 × 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The prices coincide with earlier rumors that there will be a OnePlus 6 256 GB version, which will carry a price tag of $749.

A quick glance at the nomenclature will let you work out that this GT S Roadster is a GT S with its roof chopped off, which means Mercedes' 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 with 515bhp and 494lb/ft of torque (that's 35bhp more than the GT and 46bhp less than the GT C), enough for a 0-62mph sprint in 3.7 seconds. The acceleration figure matches the GT S coupe though the top speed is 1 miles per hour lower. Upgrades to the GT S Roadster sees adaptive suspension, electronically-controlled limited slip differential, a variable note exhaust with the inclusion of a "RACE" mode. The vehicle also comes standard with an electronically controlled locking differential at the rear axle, which is integrated with the rear-mounted transmission.

Inside, the GT S features sports seats trimmed in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre as standard, with nappa leather optionally available, along with silver chrome interior highlights and Airscarf neck-level heating.

Says Mercedes-AMG Chairman Tobias Moers: "With the AMG GT S Roadster, our AMG GT family has gained another exceptionally sporty member that combines high driving dynamics with an emotional open-air experience". Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
