New Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster unveiled

New Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster unveiled

A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz Australia told MOTOR the AMG GT S Roadster will be available next year, though further details are unconfirmed. While the company has not revealed its plan for an India launch, we do hope Mercedes-AMG adds the new AMG GT S Roadster to its Indian portfolio as it will only add more fire-power to its portfolio. Standstill to 60 is happens in an approximate 3.7 seconds, around two tenths of a second quicker than the GT, but one slower than the GT C. With the new GT S Roadster, the German carmaker offers the running gear of the GT S with the Roadster body.

When it arrives on United Kingdom 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. The open-air sports vehicle gets its power from the AMG 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine and will come in three different versions. Talking about numbers, you get 515bhp and 670Nm which enables the auto to hit 100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds and top out at nearly 310 kmph.

Simpson takes control at Players with 7-shot lead
At the 137-yard par-3 17th, Potter, Jr. hit a tee shot 136 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 17-foot putt for birdie. While Woods was burning up the front nine, Spieth turned in 2-under 34, but on the back nine, he had two hat-tricks of birdies.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but with its performance being situated between that of the GT and GT C Roadster, a price between the GT and GT C's respective MSRPs of $124,400 and $157,000 is likely. Then, it has an electronically-controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential.

However, AMG has now decided that it is a gap worth plugging. Performance metrics will also depend on which of the five driving modes a user selects, including C (comfort), S (sport), S+ (sport plus), RACE, and the individually programmable I (individual). AMG says they share performance times despite this. This means sports seats wrapped in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre with the optional extra being nappa leather.

Amanda Nunes drops Raquel Pennington with final-round TKO
Her win streak now goes all the way back to March 2015, and she is arguably the reason that the Rowdy one now works for WWE. I think she really needs to surround herself with people that want the best for her so she can evolve in her next fight.

The Premium equipment line made available by AMG adds the Keyless-Go package, a Burmester surround sound system, reversing camera and Assist Parktronic.
