Mercedes has unveiled what it describes as the most beautiful S Class cars of all time. The 2016 Mercedes S Class Cabriolet closely resembles the S Coupe except for the three-layer soft top convertible roof.

The full sized luxury cabrio can be specified with dark blue, beige, black and dark red fabric soft top which can be retracted or deployed in a matter of 20 seconds at speeds of up to 60 kmph.

The interior too is identical to that of the S Coupe but the open top vehicle gets exclusive features such as THERMOTRONIC intelligent climate control system that keep the cabin at optimum temperature even when the roof is down. Owners can customize their car with leather, nappa leather or Designo Exclusive nappa leather.

The cabrio can be specified with Designo nappa leather interior.

Optional features include Warmth Comfort Package which adds heated seats, arm rests and steering wheel. The S-Class Cabriolet also comes with optional AIR-BALANCE pack which can fill the cabin with a range of fragrances, AIRCAP wind protection system and AIRSCARF neck level heating system.

The S 500 Cabrio is powered by a 4.7-litre Biturbo V8 petrol engine which is tuned to produce 455 PS and 700 Nm of torque. If that’s not powerful enough, one can opt either for the S 63 AMG or S 63 AMG 4MATIC variants which are powered by a 5.5-litre V8 Biturbo petrol motor which packs 585 PS and 900 Nm of torque.

Order books for the Mercedes S Class Cabriolet will open in Germany in December with deliveries set to commence in mid-2016. Prices will be announced at a later stage.
