Summer is upon us, ( sadly not if you live in Bristol ) – but we still love a Roadster, so we are super excited to see the launch of this all new Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster.
Mercedes in our view ‘get-it’ when it comes to driving sensation and ensuring you maximum driving fun without losing touch with the elements. So I would be interested to get behind the wheel of this beast.
According to the garb.. the GT R Roadster uses a handbuilt biturbo 4.0-litre V8 engine, has an output of 585 hp and 700 Nm of torque. It can travel from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 197 mph. – That’ll do!
It is available in a choice of three colours: black, red or beige with prices starting from £178,675 and the order books are open!
The GT R Roadster comes as standard with LED High Performance headlights with Adaptive Highbeam Assist; active aerodynamics which allows more precise handling and better road adhesion; AMG performance seats in Style Exclusive nappa leather upholstery; AMG performance exhaust; AMG Drive Unit including traction control; manually adjustable aerofoil; yellow brake calipers; climatised seats with memory package; air scarf with neck level heating; Driving Assistance pack including Active Distance Distronic and Blind Spot Assist; 10.25-inch media display and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster; Burmester high end surround sound system; AMG Interior Night package; AMG matt carbon fibre trim including centre console and door trim strip in carbon fibre; and DINAMICA roof liner.
Oh and for an extra £5,995, customers can add the AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system.
