The new Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster takes the top off the classic GT R, replacing the hardtop with a three-layer fabric roof. The Roadster boasts the same specs as its counterpart, meaning the same twin-turbo V8 engine under its hood, packing 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, as well as a widened body, adjustable coilover suspension, active aero, and a staggered wheelset (20-inchers in the back and 19-inchers up front). It’s 0-60 time and top speed both match the GT R at 3.5 seconds and 197 miles per hour, respectively.

There are minor differences between the models, however. The Roadster utilizes exclusive wheel arch liners with special cooling-air slits which pass more air through. Inside, two configurable display buttons are added to the bottom spoke of the AMG Performance steering wheel. The car is also available in an exclusive Designo Graphite-Grey Magno matte finish, a shade not currently on offer.

The AMG Exclusive Trim Package features AMG Performance seats in Nappa leather and diamond stitching, with carbon fibre in the center console, vent rings, the four instrument panel vents, and armrest trim strips. They’ve also used the AMG Interior Night Package for the steering wheel spokes, shift paddles, and seat inserts. Airscarf, AMG’s neck-heating technology, is standard. In addition, Mercedes-AMG offers three other treatments: Saddle Brown/Black, Macchiato Beige/Black, and Silver Pearl/Black.

When asked about its offering of only 750 units across the globe, the carmaker says that the limited number “addresses a new, lifestyle-oriented group which pursues peak experiences.” Given its highly limited amount, (wealthy) fans of Mercedes-AMG should definitely act fast.

For automotive news, be sure to compare the Roadster with the more traditional Mercedes-AMG GT R and the GT R Pro.
