Less than a month ago, Mercedes of Europe announced it was taking orders for the new Mercedes-AMG GT and GT C Roadsters, as well as the wild and aggressive AMG GT R. Converting the price to from Euros to USD can be tricky, as there is more than just a simply currency conversion to think about. However, taking the starting price of €129,180, we can confer based on current USD pricing that the roadster version will start at $120,000. We think that’s a great price, considering the a SL550 with options can reach or exceed that figure.
