Mercedes-Benz seems to follow Lamborghini and Bentley path this year in issuing a limited edition series from their lineup. Mercedes took their time to release the AMG GT-R Roadster 2019 some time ago at Geneva International Motorshow, the latest car which will be available for 750 units worldwide has a touch of sporty accessories on its exterior.
This design language is almost identical with the GT-R Coupe, with the new air dam that got more stylish than the standard with 2 right and left splitter fins. While the standard version only has 1 blade, and like the other AMG, there is no fog lamp for the bumper because it switches function as a brake cooling hole.
Another modification comes in the fender vents which have a thinner more split that is more dynamic with black gloss finishes and reinforces the description of the engine with the “V8 Biturbo” emblem on the fender side.
The rim itself uses AMG forged wheel, 10 cross motif with stripe size. The front uses 19 inches, while the rear that uses 20 inches. The tires themselves use Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 measuring 275/35 R19 and 325/30 R20.
This tire selection also acts as supports to boost the performance of the car. While behind the rim, there are 6 piston disc brakes with yellow drilled plates for the front, and single piston at the rear.
Looking at the back side, we can find a more aggressive design, with the addition of a large spoiler, a varnish in the center of the air hole, then there are holes in the right and left ends of the bumper.
In total, this car has 3 exhausts, with a large enough exhaust at center, and the other 2, its placement blends with the diffuser on the right and left.
Peeping into the cabin of this sports car, we are welcomed with a blend of black and white and many carbon panel accents in the interior panel. The dashboard is wrapped in leather, with carbon fiber accents on the panel of 4 AC holes, to the middle panel.
To make it look more elegant, around the carbon panels are made with piano black colors. There are also optional diamond stitching colors of Saddle Brown / Black, Beige / Black Macchiato, and Silver Pearl / Black.
The front seat, center console, and the rear seat are clad in elegant white with the AFFALTERBACH logo emboss. The features are also very adequate, the driver is presented with the AC Dual Zone Climate Control feature, and an integrated panel head unit.
For the convenience of the driver, the steering wheel has an audio steering switch, cruise control, and paddle shift, there is also a drive mode that can be adjusted to 5 level comforts, sport, sport plus, individual, and slippery. Meanwhile, behind the steering wheel, there is a full-color MID screen that shows all information about the AMG GT-R.
The mechanical heart relies on a V8 Biturbo engine with a capacity of 4,000 cc, this engine is capable of bursting power which reaches 577 hp and a torque of 699 Nm. Acceleration from 0-100 kph is quite fast and is capable of being struck in just under 3.5 seconds.
