Discover the powertrain and driving dynamics of the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster.

AMG exhaust

The AMG V8 signature sound: powerful when accelerating, deep yet discreet at constant speeds. An emotive anthem that's visually complemented by chrome-plated trim on the two integral tailpipes.

AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G

An advanced 7-speed, dual-clutch transmission that consists of two sub-transmissions: one delivers torque to the wheels, the other preselects the next gear. 

The result is instant gear changes and rev-matched, lightening quick shift times – a wonderfully uplifting sensation, whether you're shifting up or down. Should you wish to proceed at a more leisurely rate, the DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs enable relaxed, efficient cruising.

Torque tube

The engine and dual-clutch transmission are connected by a torque tube with an extremely lightweight, torsionally stiff carbon fibre drive shaft. It transmits power to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G, which then transforms power into acceleration. Inconceivably fast and incredibly efficiently.

AMG sports suspension

The AMG double wishbone suspension – with its successful motorsport heritage – delivers true racetrack performance. 

Excellent lateral dynamics and handling stability are provided at high speeds, and external factors such as crosswind, road bumps or sudden changes in the friction coefficient are all cleverly compensated for.

AMG V8 biturbo engine

The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers up to 430 kW (585 hp) and generates peak torque of 700 Nm. Equally impressive is a dry weight of just 245 kg. 

An aluminium crankcase delivers maximum strength-to-weight ratio, and the twin turbochargers are installed very compactly in a 'Hot inside V' configuration. The benefits of this elegant engineering solution are far-reaching: optimum response times, extremely high pulling power (even at low revs), and improved emissions.

AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension

Suspension that adapts to your wishes, at a touch of a button. 'Comfort' mode provides plusher damping characteristics, 'Sport' and 'Sport+' modes deliver firmer settings for more dynamic driving styles.

  • Traction

    Traction leader.

    Traction leader.

    The transaxle design of the drive system allows a traction-boosting weight distribution of 47% at the front and 53% at the rear. An AMG limited-slip rear-axle differential boosts traction further still, by preventing the inside drive wheel from slipping.

    The transaxle design of the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster enables optimum traction, especially when adopting a sporty driving style.

    47 / 53

    Perfect balance: lighter at the front than at the rear.

  • Lateral dynamics

    Phenomenal in every situation.

    Fall in love with twisted roads.

    Dry sump lubrication allows a lower vehicle centre of gravity and ensures phenomenal lateral dynamics in the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster.

    Fall in love with twisted roads.

    The more challenging the corner, the more you appreciate Mercedes-Benz technology. Dry sump lubrication enables a lower centre of gravity and phenomenal lateral dynamics. AMG RIDE CONTROL allows suspension with three levels of adjustment. Downforce-optimised aerodynamics ensure sustained grip at speed, and aluminium construction produces an extremely stiff body, for maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics and steering precision. The combined result: track-level handling.

  • Aerodynamics

    Winds of wonder.

    Enhanced underbody panelling for optimum exhaust air flow for the oil cooler and improved flow to the rear diffuser.
    The active air control system in the lower area of the front apron ensures outstanding aerodynamics from the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster.

    Aerodynamics.

    Winds of wonder.

    The aerodynamic concept of the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, developed with motorsport know-how, works in three ways: to increase aerodynamic stability, decrease wind resistance and supply cooling air to all components. An AIRPANEL in the front apron and an extending rear aerofoil actively adjust aerodynamics for any given driving situation.

Brake disc with AMG high-performance compound braking system from the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster affixed to the wall for display purposes.

The discs made of carbon-fibre-reinforced ceramic are exceptionally hard and at the same time 40% lighter than conventional compound brake discs. The advantages of this are an increased service life, the shorter braking distances, an accurate pressure point and maximum fade resistance.
