How could you possibly make an AMG® sportscar even better? How about you open it up into a roadster! The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT Roadster has been shaped for pure performance in every dimension. It features a lightweight, sculpted body that is aerodynamic and sensuous, all while including impressive aesthetics and incredible attention to detail. To make it go even faster, an ultralight trunk lid is created with carbon fiber and a Sheet Molding Compound that has been specially developed by Mercedes-Benz AMG® engineers. Optimal downforce, low drag, and a low center of gravity work together to give you some highly rewarding driving capabilities. Add in a power soft top that has been finely tailored from three layers and you've got "coupe-like" comfort when it's closed and "sky's the limit" freedom when it's open.
Once you step inside the cabin, you will find appointments and seating that are completely race-inspired. For example, deeply contoured AMG® Performance seats come with race-like head restraints with aluminum accents and AMG® badging. Year-round comfort is given thanks to black DINAMICA microsuede seat inserts, while the unmatched style of Black MB-Tex is found on the seat side bolsters, head restraints, thigh inserts, and other seat surfaces.
Under the hood of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT Roadster, you will find an AMG®-developed 469-hp V8 biturbo engine 30% more efficient than last year's model while still providing you with more power. It is then mated to a 7-speed DCT transmission that is the newest generation of AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® to control shifting and make it more aggressive at faster speeds. Choose between Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Race when it comes to shifting, or utilize those same modes under AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT, plus an Individual mode you can configure a la carte. These choices can help you create the perfect driving profile for all your drive personalities.
