    The new Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster.

    Kraftstoffverbrauch kombiniert: 12,5 l/100 km;
    CO₂-Emissionen kombiniert: 284 g/km.¹

Limited to 750 units.

This combination is just irresistible and is limited to 750 units: Mercedes-AMG is combining its top model brimming with motorsport technology with the freedom of the open-air driving experience – crowning the model portfolio of open-top sports cars. The new AMG GT R Roadster is just as much at home on winding racetracks as it is on prestigious boulevards or beautiful coastal roads. The 430 kW (585 PS) V8 biturbo, the adjustable coil-over suspension with active rear axle steering, the active aerodynamics and the intelligent lightweight construction form the foundations for highly dynamic handling characteristics. And like the other roadster models the open AMG GT R also has the triple-layer fabric soft top with a lightweight structure consisting of aluminium, magnesium and steel.

The essence of two worlds.

“The new AMG GT R Roadster is far more than the combination of the thrilling vehicle dynamics of the GT R with the special flair of our GT Roadsters. It is the essence of two worlds, blending to deliver our brand pledge, Driving Performance, in a very special way. With our GT R Roadster we have without doubt once again developed a brand-defining sports car. It too embodies Mercedes-AMG in form, function and vehicle dynamics and enriches our GT family with a highly exclusive variant limited to 750 units,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Management Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Muscular performance in all engine speed ranges.

The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo in the AMG GT R Roadster delivers an output of 430 kW (585 PS) and maximum torque of 700 Nm. This is available over a wide engine speed range from 2,100 to 5,500 rpm. The eight-cylinder power unit delivers muscular performance in all engine speed ranges, combined with high efficiency. A sprint from standstill to 100 km/h is absolved in 3.6 seconds. The dynamic power delivery continues right up to the top speed of 317 km/h.

The exterior design.

The low-slung front section and the forward-inclined AMG-specific radiator grille create a distinctive “shark nose” impression and make the car appear to sit lower on the road. At the same time, this shape lowers the vehicle’s back-pressure point, enhancing the flow of cooling air and the car’s aerodynamic performance. The V-shaped arrow-like appearance of the front end also enhances the dynamic looks, thus embodying the uninhibited forwards thrust of the AMG GT R Roadster even before it moves. The front apron in jet wing design and the front splitter emphasise the car’s width.

The large outer air inlets in the front apron guarantee the increased supply of cooling air to the engine. For this reason, they sport two aerodynamically shaped horizontal fins in place of meshes and as a result route the airflow to the radiators without loss. Additional Air Curtains on the outside of the front apron calm the airflow, improving the cd value of the open-top two-seater. Thanks to their narrow, vertical openings, the Air Curtains also guide the air specifically towards the wheel arches, optimising the flow properties.

Active aerodynamics profile.

An active aerodynamics profile is concealed almost invisibly in the underbody in front of the engine. This light carbon-fibre element is speed-sensitive and automatically extends around 40 millimetres downwards depending on the drive programme. This process involves considerable change in the airflow and results in what is known as the Venturi effect, which additionally “sucks” the car onto the road and reduces the front-axle lift by around 40 kilograms at 250 km/h. The aerodynamics profile automatically retracts again depending on the drive programme and speed. The driver can feel the advantages in the steering: the roadster can be steered even more precisely when cornering at high speed and exhibits even better directional stability. Especially during fast cornering and under high lateral acceleration, the vehicle delivers far more agile response with clear steering-wheel feedback while remaining easily controllable at all times.

Flat and sleek proportions.

The front wings of super-light carbon add a total of 46 millimetres to the width of the roadster at the front and make room for the wider track and large wheel/tyre combinations. A further distinguishing feature is the special wing signet featuring a fin and a large air outlet through which the waste heat from the engine bay flows. The side view additionally benefits from the standard-fit AMG Performance forged wheels in matt black. The especially lightweight 10-spoke wheel is exclusive to the AMG GT R models. The lightweight design of the wheels has three advantages: it reduces the overall weight, the rotatory mass and the unsprung masses.

Special rear end design.

The rear end also features numerous, conspicuous differentiations. The aluminium sidewalls make the AMG GT R Roadster 57 millimetres wider at the rear. This creates room for the larger 20-inch wheels and tyres as well as the wider track. These measures make for improved traction while allowing higher cornering speeds. The wider design of the rear apron with large outer vent openings and vertical swage lines improves the airflow at the rear end, as does the double diffuser. The overall heat dissipation is optimised as the warm air is exhausted by the double diffuser during driving.

A small air outlet is incorporated between the tail lamps for additional dissipation of the heat generated by the rear silencer. A further distinguishing feature is the large exhaust tip with centrepiece, which is centrally positioned in the rear apron. It is flanked by two more black tail pipes on the left and right of the diffuser. The large rear wing with an integral third brake lamp is fixed to the boot lid and increases the downforce on the rear axle. Depending on the application or racetrack conditions the inclination of the aerofoil blade can be mechanically precision-adjusted.

Tailor-made suit for the fashion-conscious.

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. The driver is integrated into the cockpit thanks to the high beltlines, the door trims with their concave design, the dynamically rising centre console and the low seat position. It feels like a custom-fit suit and made-to-measure shoes – so is very closely connected to the roadster. In the centre console a badge with the inscription “1 of 750” points to the roadster’s limited number of units. The standard-specification AMG Performance seats offer strong lateral support with their more deeply contoured side bolsters on the sitting surface and seat backrest.
