It has four two-door coupes, three four-door coupes, two customer race cars, and two roadsters.

A spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz Australia told MOTOR the AMG GT S Roadster will be available next year, though further details are unconfirmed.

AMG says the GT S Roadster, the third introduction to the GT Roadster line-up, has had modifications made to not only its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, but also to its suspension, brakes, design and interior.

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled another new member of the GT family - the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster. The S version is tucked between the GT and the GT C, both in performance and price. Top speed is 188 MPH for the former and 196 MPH for the latter, which Mercedes-AMG averages to 192 MPH for the GT S Roadster as a whole.

When the Roadster version of Mercedes-AMG's GT sports auto was first announced back in 2016, the company elected not to offer an "S" version, rather leaving customers to choose between the 350kW base model and the more brutal GT C with 410kW and various performance parts from the GT R. Either way, the GT S Roadster has plenty of get up and go.

Standard equipment for global models include AMG Ride Control with adaptive damping as standard, AMG Dynamic Select driving modes, an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, 390mm front and 360mm rear composite brakes with six-piston front and single-piston rear calipers, LED headlights, along with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear alloy wheels.

In addition, buyers can specify the AMG Dynamic Plus package, which brings firmer suspension, active engine mount and quicker-responding steering. This means sports seats wrapped in Artico faux leather and Dinamica microfibre with the optional extra being nappa leather. Pricing will also be available as we draw closer to the car's launch.
