Manchester City's 105 goals this season breaks the record for the most ever in the Premier League. Alright, Daniel, the boys and I have done our part for three straight seasons now.

Just like the Coupé version, the GT S Roadster gets various engine, suspension and design modifications to distinguish it from the base GT, with the 4-litre twin-turbo V8 tuned to 384kW and 670Nm.

Despite being a convertible, the GT S Roadster is still a serious sports auto. Talking about numbers, you get 515bhp and 670Nm which enables the auto to hit 100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds and top out at nearly 310 kmph.

Stoeger to leave Dortmund at the end of the season
Peter Stoger was a surprising choice by Dortmund but only time will tell if it was the right one. However, despite steering Dortmund into calmer waters, he never fully made his mark at the club.

The power is routed to the rear axle via an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7G sport transmission.

It features AMG's adaptive damping, something the GT misses out on, while also gaining a rear-axle LSD. The S uses an electronically controlled rear differential. Stiffer suspension, active engine and transmission mounts and a retuned steering setup aim to deliver a sharper drive, while inside the pack adds an alcantara-effect steering wheel and yellow details in the dials.

Tracking down a Nintendo and purchasing all the games that were included in the NES Classic would cost hundreds of dollars. For those who remember the NES Classic launched in 2016 to incredible popularity, similar to SNES Classic .

The GT S has the same driveline as the GT, rather than the wider tracks of the GT C and GT R (which isn't available as a Roadster). It's a vehicle for those that like the look of the GT but don't necessarily need to attention that comes with the deep air vents and swollen wheel arches. An output of 515bhp places the GT S between the standard 469hp GT and the GT C's 549hp. Combined with LED headlamps and ceramic composite braking system, the AMG GT Roadster S lights up the night road and brakes like a racing auto, offering drivers not only a vehicle that's sporty but also one that factors in safety.
