Clients that want the performance of the Mercedes-AMG GT have a wealth of options to choose from. There is the AMG GT, AMG GT-R, an AMG GT with four doors, and of course, a pair of open-top roadsters.
Actually, we stand corrected on that last bit. Mercedes-AMG is now offering a trio of droptops to suit different tastes. There is the standard AMG GT Roadster or the AMG GT C Roadster. Slotting in between these two is the new Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster. So why introduce a new variant to an already crowded lineup?
Mercedes-AMG seems to want people to think of its cars as having different states of tune to suit varying driving styles. Folks that simply want the open-air experience can go for the Standard model with its more-than-adequate 469hp. Those that want the full monty are definitely steered towards the AMG GT C with its 550hp.
