The S-Class Cabriolet is the convertible offering by Mercedes-Benz for open air adventures. A host of features and innovation can be seen in this model that trickle down in the brands line-up for the future.
In 1996 the S-Class coupe was spun off in a separate line as the CL-Class, however as of June 2014, it has been re-designated as the S-Class Coupé for the 2015 model year, doing away with the CL-Class. In 2016, the S-Class Cabriolet, was introduced with three variants: the S 550 Cabriolet, the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet with 4Matic, and the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Cabriolet.
Twin turbos, nested in the engine virtually eliminate lag and boost the direct-injected 4.0L biturbo V8 of the S 560 to 463 hp. Paired with a 9-speed transmission, it can whisk you to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds.
Adding some serious performance to the S-Class Cabriolet is the AMG S-Class Cabriolet. Available in S 63 and S 65 versions, the S 65 uses a V12 engine built by hand capable of 738 lb.ft of torque and reaching 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds.
