AMG will allegedly show two versions of the GT Roadster.
Mercedes-AMG will unveil two topless variants of the GT during the Paris Auto Show, according to a recent report.
Called simply GT Roadster, the first one will essentially be a topless version of the GT Coupe. Power will be provided by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine tuned to deliver 456 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 443 pound-feet of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm. It'll be slightly heavier than the coupe, naturally, so it'll take a little over four seconds to hit 60 mph from a stop.
The second model will be dubbed GT C Roadster, according to Australian website Motoring. The GT C will be positioned between the GT S and the 577-horsepower GT R (pictured) that debuted earlier this summer during the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Mechanical specifications aren't available yet, but its output will likely lie in the vicinity of 540 horsepower.
The two roadster models will use a cloth soft top, a setup chosen because engineers were asked to make the GT Convertible as light as possible. While the standard Roadster will look like the regular GT without a top, the GT C version will wear a model-specific front end.
Mercedes-AMG hasn't revealed what its plans are for the Paris show. We'll be on-location in the French capital when the show opens its doors next month, and if the rumor is accurate we'll bring you live images of both roadsters.
