The Mercedes-AMG GT has been imagined as a roadster with a folding hardtop, ahead of the 'regular' model’s arrival in Australia later this year.

Following on from its predecessor - the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG - the GT is expected to be available to customers as an open-air version at some stage in the future.

Although AMG is yet to confirm if or when this may happen, replicating the sales potential from the SLS convertible over its mode life potentially makes a strong business case for the GT range to offer a similar model.

A GT roadster has already been rendered as a soft-top, not long after its official unveiling at last year’s Paris Motor Show.

But independent artist Theo Chin has taken a different track with his rendering, imagining instead how the GT might look like with a folding metal roof.

As with other convertible Mercedes-Benz options in the carmaker’s line-up, the roof in this design would retract with the assistance of electric motors at the touch of a button.

Within around 20 seconds, the GT will have transformed from coupe to convertible as the ‘Z-fold’ roof disappears into its hideaway within the GT’s boot.

While boot space would understandably be compromised with the roof in the down position, the deficit to the standard GT coupe would be wider than in other models.

The GT coupe has a full lift-back rear to give it 350 litres of boot space, which would likely be replaced by a standard boot lid in the convertible making for a much shallower boot.

Furthermore, the GT’s retractable rear wing may also face the chopping block if AMG decide to go with the folding hardtop design.

A Mercedes-AMG GT convertible would compete with the likes of Porsche’s 911 and the Jaguar F-TYPE - if the German carmaker decides to build it.
