With 384kW and 670Nm, it sits between the 350kW/630Nm of the GT Roadster, and the 410kW/680Nm of the GT C Roadster, as does its 0-100km/h sprint of 3.8 seconds and its top speed of 308km/h. This positions it between the GT Roadster and top-end drop top, the GT C Roadster.

A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz Australia told MOTOR the AMG GT S Roadster will be available next year, though further details are unconfirmed.

Says Mercedes-AMG Chairman Tobias Moers: "With the AMG GT S Roadster, our AMG GT family has gained another exceptionally sporty member that combines high driving dynamics with an emotional open-air experience".

The Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster will be available to buy in overseas markets from July 2018.

Falcons add McClain to help along defensive line
If the Cowboys were hoping to get off to a fast start in their offseason program, they have to be shaking their collective heads. The Cowboys will likely be looking for a short-term team-friendly deal that can help bolster this defensive line.

The GT S Roadster will also be offered with as many as four optional packages - Dynamic Plus, Exterior Carbon-Fibre, Exterior Night and Chrome. AMG says they share performance times despite this. It makes 494 pounds-feet of torque and comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

AMG's "Airpanel" active air regulation system is also featured as standard, which opens and closes louvres at the bottom of the front apron to optimise aerodynamics and cooling. Like the rest of the AMG GT family, it's rear-wheel drive like a [insert British accent] "proper sports vehicle should be".

According to Mercedes, the AMG GT S Roadster will make the sprint to 60 miles per hour from a standstill in only 3.7 seconds, while its more powerful older brother will do the same in 3.6 seconds.

No pricing information has been released for the 2019 AMG GT S Roadster, but the other two roadster variants start at roughly $12,000 more than their coupe counterparts, so our best guess is a price of around $145,000 when all is said and done.
