MERCEDES-AMG GT ROADSTER AN UNPRECEDENTED 557 HP V8 TWIN TURBO FOR DISCOVERABLE
On the sidelines of the Paris Motor Show, Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster unveils more powerful than the closed version. But that’s not all because a variant “GT C” of discoverable is also be his appearance. It boasts a midway between the cavalry and cut GT S and GT R.
The SL is too bourgeois to your liking? And you find the V6 367 hp of SLC 43 AMG a little low? Look forward to: the AMG GT Roadster arrives and intends to satisfy fans to resolutely sporting convertibles. Despite the loss of the fixed roof, here replaced by a soft top which operates in 11 seconds and up to 50 km / h, the GT Roadster has lost none of the charm of the strengths cut. The stocky online and generously shapely hips have in fact remained intact.
MORE POWERFUL THAN THE CUT AT ALL LEVELS
What has changed in contrast, is mechanical: the top of the range, the point of GT S 510 hp as is the case on the cut but unprecedented high declination GT C 557 hp. This cavalry, always following the V8 biturbo engine cubing 4 liters, allows the convertible to shoot down the 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds before pointing to 316 km / h. The extreme AMG GT R from 585 hp is not far with 3.5 seconds and 318 km / h respectively. Note that the cut will adopt him as variant GT C from 557 hp in the future. It may also wonder whether it will eventually replace the GT S, the Roadster having chosen to overlook the latter.
The entry-level engine in the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster also evolving from that of its counterpart closed. If the GT Coupe is content to 462 hp, the discoverable embarks on his part a configuration scope biturbo V8 to 476 hp as the C 63 AMG. The performances here are 4 seconds for the 0 to 100 km / h and 302 km / h to the top speed. The Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster and GT C Roadster will be launched early in 2017 at unknown prices.
