The Mercedes-AMG GT was always meant as a Porsche 911 fighter, and today, the lineup got one more weapon to take on its fierce rival with the introduction of the all-new GT Roadster which will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show at the end of the month.

Stunning design and plenty of power for the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster


The base AMG GT, if you can call it that, will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine which delivers 469 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. The numbers are slightly up from the coupe AMG GT which has 456 horsepower sent to the rear wheels. According to Mercedes-AMG, the jump in power gives the AMG GT Roadster the ability to reach 60 mph (or 97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds.

But that’s not all, the AMG GT C will also be made available to consumers. With 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, it should bring the 0-60 time down to the low 3.0 seconds. The GT C will also feature an active rear-wheel steering system taken from the AMG GT R Coupe which improves handling by slightly turning the rear wheels along with the front wheels.

The top is fabric and, according to Mercedes-AMG, it can open or close in about 11 seconds up to 50 or km/h.
