The Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster pricing has been revealed, with the model set to cost from £110,145 for a standard car to £143,245 for the range-topping GT R coupé. Both were revealed at the Paris motor show earlier this year.
This puts the entry-level drop-top at an £11,950 premium over the coupé and £3650 below the price of the Jaguar F-Type SVR convertible. The top-spec GT C Roadster is priced at £139,445, which is £3679 more than the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet.
The range-topping GT R coupé is aligned directly with the McLaren 570S coupé; its £143,245 price tag undercuts the McLaren by just £5. Deliveries are not expected to begin until April 2017.
Options on the entry-level GT Roadster and GT R range-topper include the Premium equipment pack, which at £4195 brings keyless entry and go, a reversing camera and stainless steel door sills as well as heated seats on the GT R, a £3895 carbonfibre package, £395 yellow seat belts and £7500 for the GT R launch car's metallic green paint.
Semi-autonomous driver assistance tech is also optionable, with a £595 package that adds lane keeping and blind spot assists, while the £1695 Driving Assistance package adds adaptive cruise control and a pre-safe system that prepares the car for an accident if an imminent collision is detected.
Sporting the styling updates unveiled on the 577bhp GT R back in June, the GT Roadster features AMG’s distinctive new 300 SL Panamericana inspired grille, which receives an altered shape and vertical chrome bars instead of the earlier blade treatment seen on the GT Coupé.
To ensure more efficient cooling of the engine and improved aerodynamic properties, the GT Roadster also adopts the active air management system that was first seen on the GT R. It uses a series of vertical louvres within the grille, which automatically open and close depending on the temperature of the engine to either enhance cooling or smooth airflow.
Further visual changes over the GT Coupé include a more defined splitter element in the lower section of the front bumper, larger air ducts and more defined sills underneath the doors.
At the rear, the two GT Roadster models differ in width due to the adoption of differing rear bumpers. The standard GT Roadster uses the same bumpers as the existing GT Coupé, while the GT C Roadster uses the 57mm wider bodywork of the GT R. This allows the latter to run larger 20in rear wheels with 305/30 profile rubber as standard in place of the 19in rims and 295/35 tyres of the former.
