Mercedes GT R to get roadster treatment

Mercedes GT R to get roadster treatment

Following the GT and GT S, Mercedes-AMG came out with the GT C and GT R. But as we wait for the Clubsport and Black Series to emerge, it so happens that our spy photographers caught the GT R Roadster strolling in the vicinity of the Nurburgring.

Compared to the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT facelift spied a few days ago, this prototype doesn’t appear to be equipped with the redesigned headlights and bumpers. A visual change that’s easy to spot is the rear wing, smaller in width and sitting a little closer to the deck compared to the coupe’s wing.

The three-layer soft top, meanwhile, doesn’t differ from other versions of the GT Roadster. What this means is, Mercedes-AMG allows the user to raise or lower the roof at speeds of up to 50 kmph in 11 seconds. There are three colours available for the soft top: the pictured black, red, and beige.

The downside to the soft top comes in the form of increased weight (due to the mechanism and structure reinforcement). But on the other hand, offering the GT R in Roadster flavour is the right move for Mercedes-AMG, which intends to capture a broader piece of the customer pool in this segment.

Just like the coupe, the open-top convertible features rear-wheel steering and Sheet Moulding Compound with composite materials such as carbon fibre. The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with dry-sump lubrication should be just as powerful, packing 585bhp and 700 Nm of torque on full song.

In regard to performance, the GT R shoots to 100 kmph in 3.6 seconds, with top speed is rated at 318 kmph. The GT C isn’t far behind, but then again, the lesser model doesn’t have the on-track capability of the GT R.
