• Mercerdes-AMG PureSpeed roadster unveiled ahead of this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix
  • First car from exclusive Mythos series of special cars is limited to 250 units
  • PureSpeed is based on latest SL but incorporates AMG One and F1 design cues like halo rollover bar

Mercedes-AMG has revealed the first car in its Mythos series, the PureSpeed, an SL-based roadster that features design cues from F1, including halo-style rollover protection.

It’s fitting then, that Mercedes chose to debut the first of its Mythos series of low volume, high-priced specials ahead of this weekend’s F1 race at Monaco, whose residents also happen to be some of the few in the world wealthy enough to afford one. The two-seater enters small-scale production next years and will be limited to 250 units.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
