AMG GT R ROADSTER
The ultimate rush.
AMG GT R ROADSTER
Limited to just 750 units worldwide, the GT R Roadster harnesses the air and a racing legacy like never before. Active aero draws it to the road. A power top draws the sky to it. And 577 handcrafted horses lure you to experience it all.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Racing bloodline, rarified air.
Distilling GT3 racing technology to road-ready form, the AMG GT R is the most fortified, formidable roadster in the AMG family. Strategically lightened and strengthened, it boasts active aero and numerous performance innovations which create a roadster that's limited in production but unleashed in every other way.
Maxed-out maximum: nearly 20 lbs of boost
Bigger turbos, nested between the cylinder banks, force-feed 19.6 psi of max boost to reshaped cylinders and heads. From remapped engine management to a lightened flywheel, each of its 577 hp carries less than 3 kg of the car's weight, to help it rocket to 100 in 3.6 seconds. Disclaimer
Massive torque, less mass
The front-mid-engine/rear-transaxle layout delivers an ideal 47.3:52.7 front/rear weight balance. Transmitting massive power between them, a carbon fibre torque tube is more rigid yet some 9 kg lighter. The carbon fibre front fenders, front splitter and underbody panels further slash weight.
Adjustable coil-over springs team with the 3-stage adaptive damping of AMG RIDE CONTROL and active rear-wheel steering for unshakable control on road or track. Five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes let you dial in shifting, damping, exhaust sound and more.
Proven in the heat of battle
AMG brakes start at superlative for superior stopping power. Ceramic Composite brakes, developed for Formula 1® and proven on its Safety Car, feature bronze calipers with six pistons for each front wheel's brake.
Power at your feet, and in your hands
Fully clad in grippy DINAMICA microsuede, the AMG Performance steering wheel transfers the GT R's grip to your hands. The AMG DRIVE UNIT places key performance settings on the wheel, with intuitive touch controls integrating colour displays of their status.
9-mode traction control, because traction is control
Even in the most capable track car, the driver runs the show. AMG Traction Control lets you dial in its threshold of intervention via the AMG DRIVE UNIT. Nine settings range from wet-road grip to driftable slip, so you can power out of turns with gusto. Disclaimer
Every element purposeful, every contact a connection.
Exclusive STYLE Nappa leather and matte carbon fibre team with vivid digital instruments and displays. Controls on the V-shaped console and steering wheel add to the car-driver bond. Concealed underneath, lightened mass and heightened rigidity bring it all to life with highly precise driving dynamics.
Aerodynamically active, to harness the forces of nature
Wind-tunnel tuning turns airflow into alliances. Active lower grille louvres can cool the running gear or cut drag. Active carbon fibre underbody fairings draw car to road at speed. Wider rear fenders culminate in a large fixed wing and a double diffuser that helps draw off the heat of the active exhaust.
Forged wheels: AMG precision in its most genuine form
Icons of precision and panache, the AMG Performance wheels are forged for high strength with minimal weight, with the bonus of ultrathin spokes that showcase the AMG brakes. Staggered in width and diameter, the matte black 5-twin-spoke wheels are sized 19" front/20" rear, for ideal balance. Disclaimer Disclaimer Disclaimer
