Supercars.net wrote, “With its modified AMG sports suspension, mechanical differential lock and newly developed AMG high-performance brake system, the ultra-powerful high-performance Roadster’s dynamic handling is certainly impressive. The exclusive standard equipment on-board this open-top dream car underlines the technological ambition behind it… Much of the credit for the AMG 6.0-litre V12 engine’s extraordinary performance must go to the biturbo system, which features larger turbochargers and powerful water-type charge-air cooling. The remarkable maximum torque of 1000 Nm remains constantly on tap between 2000 and 4000 rpm. The 570-Nm torque which the AMG V12 biturbo engine delivers to the crankshaft at just 1000 rpm rises to 830 Nm 500 rpm later… The 12-cylinder engine is assembled by hand at the AMG engine facility – right next to the line where the supercharged AMG V8 for the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is produced. The ‘one man, one engine’ philosophy is reflected by the characteristic signature plate on the AMG V12 which bears the name of the specialist who assembled the engine and guarantees the highest standards of quality and workmanship.”
