2020 - Present

While the AMG GT Coupe was more of a daily-driver supercar, its open-top brother was more of a GT with high performances. In 2014, AMG launched its first product that was named AMG instead of Mercedes-Benz AMG. It was a car like no other in the Mercedes-Benz manufacturer lineup. The supercar was offered with the most powerful naturally aspirated engine on the market at its launch. In 2016 came the first facelift and the convertible version, and four years later, a new refresh for the lineup was introduced.

2018 - Present

After it launched the AMG GT, its marketing department thought that it would be a good idea to chop the roof and make it a roadster. But not just any roadster. So they made it look mean. This is the 2018 AMG GT C Roadster. It is wider than the GT S and with the 2018 updates, it has the AMG DYNAMICS integrated driving control system for added agility. The rear wheel arches are wider and new side-sills appeared to create a nicer side look. The soft-top is going down electrically in less than 12 seconds at speeds of up to 48 kph (30 mph).

2018 - 2020

Mercedes-AMG engineers worked around the clock to refresh the S-version for the GT lineup in both shapes, the coupe, and the roadster, and the result was unveiled in 2018. After creating the SLS supercar, the German carmaker introduced the GT model as a true Grand Tourer. But it wasn't just about long relaxing drives, especially in the S-version. The rag-top version was a true roadster, able to keep up with the most powerful supercars on the market but still offered a touch of luxury. At the front, the carmaker re-designed the Panamericana grille with vertical slats. It was inspir...

2016 - 2018

The convertible version of the Mercedes-AMG GT arrived in 2016 under the GT Roadster name. The new car takes its lead from the top AMG GT R sportscar where muscular proportions are concerned - the wider rear wings create space for a wider track and wider wheels, allowing even higher cornering speeds and best traction. A variable performance exhaust system also ensures an authentic V8 sound while the seven-speed dual clutch transmission in a transaxle arrangement comes in for precision shifting and perfect weight distribution. The 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster also comes with an active air ma...

2016 - 2018

In 2016, Mercedes-AMG improved its roadster lineup with a version that sat between the base GT and the top performer GT R. When Mercedes-Benz decided to transform the AMG into a separate brand, it allowed it to make different models, which didn't have any shape in common with other Mercedes vehicles. The first model introduced under the new brand was the SLS AMG in 2010, while the GT made its appearance in 2014 at the Paris Motor Show. The carmaker improved it and, in 2016, it came with the GT C and GT C Roadster. Mercedes-AMG unveiled both vehicles in October at the Paris Motor S...
