Review

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.

Trim: GT C

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.

Engine: GT C

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.
