Expect some looks in the new Mercedes-Benz E300 Cabriolet while you live in the moment
The open-air AMG GT S Roadster does 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 308km/h
Mercedes’ new sports car is going to get your pulse racing as quick as it eats up the road in front of it. The open-air AMG GT S Roadster (there's an acronym mouthful, for you) is a modified iteration of the original AMG GT (minus the S), and can hit 100km/h from a standing start in 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 308km/h.
The basis for the high Driving Performance of the new AMG GT S Roadster is the combination of a lightweight aluminium spaceframe, a V8 biturbo engine, a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, a rear axle locking differential and a sport suspension with aluminium double wishbone axles.
The two turbochargers of the V8 are not positioned on the outside of the cylinder banks, but inside the cylinder “V”, giving it a compact engine design and spontaneous response to the turbochargers.
Czech & Speake
Power transfer is based on the combination of a front mid-engine and the AMG Speedshift DCT 7G sport transmission in a transaxle arrangement, combined with a torsionally rigid torque tube. Thanks to the wide gear ratio spread, the decidedly high torque of the V8 biturbo engine can be used to optimum effect. The weight distribution is also ideal for optimum driving dynamics at 47 (front) and 53 (rear) percent.
Adaptive Adjustable Damping
The AMG GT S Roadster is equipped with the AMG Ride Control suspension with adaptive damping adjustment as standard. This fully automatic, electronically controlled system adjusts the damping at each wheel to the current requirements. This improves driving safety and ride comfort. The ideal operating point can be selected at all times on the basis of extensive information relating to acceleration or vehicle speed, for example.
Set Your Seat
The driver is able to set the AMG GT S Roadster to the driver’s individual requirements using the AMG Dynamic Select controller. Five drive modes: C (Comfort), S (Sport), S+ (Sport Plus), RACE and the individually programmable setup I (Individual) are available. These allow a broad range of driving experiences - from comfortable to sporty.
As standard, the AMG GT S Roadster is equipped with an electronically controlled locking differential at the rear axle, which is integrated into the compact transmission housing. Its sensitive and fast control raises the critical limit of vehicle dynamics to a new level. It not only further improves the traction of the drive wheels, but also increases the critical cornering speed.
The greatest benefit of the electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential is the even more sensitive and proactive control, which pushes the critical threshold higher, making it even easier to drive at the vehicle's limits.
The interior design echoes the design lines of the exterior. The dashboard places a firm emphasis on width, creating an impression of a powerful wing. Thanks to the high beltlines, concave door panelling, a dynamic, rising centre console and the low seating position, the driver is integrated into the cockpit and feels fully attuned to the Roadster.
The sport seats are upholstered in black Artico man-made leather/Dinamica microfibre as standard. Numerous other materials and colours are also optionally available, such as nappa leather in black, marron/black, red pepper/black, silver pearl/black. Also available only with AMG Performance seats is number of personalised options, for instance exclusive nappa leather in saddle brown/black and macchiato beige /black.
As standard the AMG GT S Roadster comes with the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package. This creates particular highlights with trim in high-quality silver chrome. The package consists of a centre console surround, air vent bezels and trim strips in the door armrests in silver chrome. Optional extras include the AMG Piano Lacquer Interior package - trim surfaced in luxurious, shining piano lacquer accentuates the high quality of the interior.
AMG trim elements in matt silver glass-fibre, carbon-fibre and matt carbon-fibre. The Exclusive Trim package further enhances the AMG trim and brings even more individuality to the interior.
Climate Control Seats
The optionally available AMG Performance seats provide even more lateral support with more heavily contoured backrest and seat cushion side bolsters. Customers wishing to enjoy comfortable temperatures even on very hot summer days can also opt for the seat climate control, which is also available for the AMG Performance seats.
