And during that time Devel also started work on the Sixty, which was shown for the first time at the 2017 Dubai auto show.
Last in line is the AMG Dynamic Plus package that will be available for £1,795 ($2,430). Either way, the GT S Roadster has plenty of get up and go.
With some 515 horsepower being churned out of its twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, the GT C offers 46 more ponies than a standard GT, and 35 fewer than the C. Its 494 lb-ft of torque lands just eight shy of the GT C's rating, however. An output of 515bhp places the GT S between the standard 469hp GT and the GT C's 549hp.
Like the rest of the GT range, the GT S drives its rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The S uses an electronically controlled rear differential. The exhaust system is similarly dynamic, with the GT's sport exhaust foregone for the GT C's multimodal exhaust.More news: Pennsylvania's Primary: Congressional Races to Watch

Mercedes-AMG is taking pre-orders for the GT S Roadster now, although it won't be launched in the United Kingdom until July.
Inside, the cabin of the Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster benefits from its upholstery covered in black ARTICO man-made leather with DINAMICA microfiber.
AMG Ride Control is standard with adaptive damping.
The drive modes offered by the vehicle are Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Race and Individual. AMG high performance ceramic brakes are also available for £5,995.
Visually, the new AMG GT S Roadster gets the signature AMG radiator grille to the long bonnet and the muscular tail end. In this window, the GT S's chief rival is Porsche's $117,400 911 Carrera S Cabriolet.
