Mercedes has announced an addition to its Mercedes-AMG GT line-up of high-performance cars - the GT S Roadster.

The GT S has the same driveline as the GT, rather than the wider tracks of the GT C and GT R (which isn't available as a Roadster).

All of that spin, routed through a seven-speed dual-clutch trans, translates into a zero-to-100 km/h acceleration time of just 3.7 seconds, a tenth of a second slower than the C.

The Mercedes-AMG GT family has a new member in the form of the GT S Roadster, bringing the total number of drop-top variants to three.

The base model GT S Roadster can go from 0-60 miles per hour is just 3.9 seconds, while the C model gets there in 3.6 seconds.

One thing Mercedes-AMG was quick to point out is that the two turbocharges of the V8 are not positioned on the outside of the cylinder banks, but inside the cylinder "V". The open-air sports auto gets its power from the AMG 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine and will come in three different versions. Key performance features fitted as standard over the base GT include an electronic limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers.

Standard equipment on this vehicle includes an AMG performance exhaust system, Airscarf, 19-inch alloy wheels (20-inch at the rear), Active Air Control system and AMG Ride Control suspension with adaptive damping.

Mercedes-AMG also offers packages to enhance the model's credentials, including the Premium line, Driving Assistance pack and the AMG Dynamic Plus extras. The GT S compromises by sharing the GT's Dinamica upholstery and the GT C's selection of steering wheel cladding, with customers receiving a choice between leather real and not real. Expect to see a price tag of around $310,000 before on-road costs. The 670Nm peak torque also sits between the other two - 10Nm below the GT C but 40Nm above the GT.

Visually, the new AMG GT S Roadster gets the signature AMG radiator grille to the long bonnet and the muscular tail end.
