Mercedes say the AMG GT S Roadster can already be ordered from dealers, although there's no official price yet. It's the third GT Roadster model in the company's stable, to go along with four two-dour coupes, three four-door coupes, and a pair of customer race cars.

Sitting between the lower-spec GT and higher-spec GT C, the GT S serves as a new mid-range offering, with performance and specifications echoing its position in the GT Roadster family.

While all examples use the 4.0-liter twin turbo V8, the GT S is rated at 515 horsepower and 494 lb-ft of torque.

The open-top version of AMG's sports auto made its debut in 2016 but only in GT and GT C guises.

The power unit is what really differentiates the AMG GT S Roadster.

Mercedes-AMG is taking pre-orders for the GT S Roadster now, although it won't be launched in the United Kingdom until July. That's enough to allow the AMG GT S Roadster to cover the 0-100 km/h sprint in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 308 km/h (191 mph) - pretty close to the AMG GT C Roadster's 3.7 seconds and 316 km/h.

Over a year after the launch of the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, it has been officially announced that a new model will be made available.

In addition, buyers can specify the AMG Dynamic Plus package, which brings firmer suspension, active engine mount and quicker-responding steering.

A performance exhaust system, electronically controlled rear differential, and beefier brakes are also shared with the range-topping GT C. Accordingly, the GT S features standard composite brake discs measuring 15.4 inches up front with six-piston fixed calipers.

The cabin looks similar too, adopting standard features such as the sport seats upholstered in black Artico artificial leather/Dinamica microfiber, and the AMG Silver Chrome Interior package.
