The new Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster has arrived in Geneva, so the summer cannot be far behind. The GT R Roadster is a super limited edition. Only 750 such units will be built.

If you’re out for a ride on the race track, either on winding roads, famous boulevards or the Atlantic coast, this is just the car for all! The new Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster has broken cover, with its V8 biturbo engine with 585 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque, coupled to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G transmission and also features a Race Start function.
A lightweight construction provides it with unparalelled handling characteristics, while the triple-layer fabric soft top integrating aluminum, magnesium and steel brings quiet ambience onboard.

The drop-top automobile is now available in a total of 14 paint choices, with the designo graphite grey magno matt paint added to the range. For further customizing, optional AMG Carbon-Fibre Package I brings the front splitter, the fins in the wings, the inserts in the side skirts as well as the rear diffuser in a high-quality carbon-fibre look.
