A new rendering from Auto Zeitung gives us the best possible look at the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster that is expected to touch down in two years. The rendering is based on the AMG GT S equipped with optional AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber Package (US$5,300) and 19″/20″ AMG cross-spoke forged, Black (US$1,700).
More GT models are on their way, said a recent report from Motoring.com.au. When Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers was asked if a Roadster model will be launched at the Australian-first preview of the supercar in March, he said that a family of derivatives will be launched. He refused to confirm the Roadster, but indirectly suggested its strong possibility.
Various new models of the GT could be launched in the future, including a Roadster, Black Series and of course, the Final Edition when it nears its end of production. The Black Series and Final Edition models though, if and when launched, would see a limited production unlike the Roadster model which would be mainstream.
The SLS AMG-replacement’s GT S and GT S Edition 1 models are powered by a new 4.0-litre biturbo V8 engine producing 510 hp and 650 Nm of torque. The less powerful standard GT model will arrive in late 2015 with a dry sump V8 that develops 462 hp and 600 Nm of torque while the Roadster model most likely feature the engine specs from the GT S/GT S Edition 1 models.
