Most sports convertible rivals offer more involving and agile handling, but the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster is still a lot of fun, and looks and sounds fantastic.

This is the entry point for the GT Roadster, and comes with 19in alloy wheels at the front and 20in wheels at the rear, dual-zone climate control, power-fold door mirrors, red brake calipers, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror and keyless entry. There are plenty of pricey performance options, such as track-focused carbon-ceramic brakes, or styling upgrades, should you wish to stand out from the crowd.

The entry-level Roadster is the GT C. It comes with a thundering twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, a seven-speed automatic gearbox, and 569bhp. That's enough for seriously rapid pace – 0-62mph in 3.7sec and a top speed of 197mph. That's similar to a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, but a McLaren 570S Spyder or Audi R8 Performance Spyder is quicker still.
