Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet is First Convertible in Over Four Decades

November 3rd, 2015 by

The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE Cabriolet was the last flagship convertible the company introduced to the market. Over four decades ago, this Cabriolet was adored by drivers as they were able to experience the power of 230 ponies generated by the 3.5-liter V-8 engine. Mercedes-Benz Brampton is glad that the wait is over because Mercedes-Benz will be developing the 2017 S-Class Cabriolet. Each S-Class Cabriolet model will be offering immense power. The S550 Cabriolet will have a biturbo 4.7-liter V-8 engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that delivers 449 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand is the S63 4MATIC Cabriolet that will give the driver even more power behind the wheel. Under the hood lies a biturbo 5.5-liter V-8 engine that has an output of 577 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The driver will have the ability accelerate the vehicle to 60 mph in just 3.9-seconds. The S63 will be fitted with an air suspension, a sport exhaust, and a distinctive body trim. When driving below 37 mph, the driver will have the ability to drop the top and enjoy the blue skies in less than 20 seconds. Even when the top is down, the cabin is quiet since the S-Class Cabriolet is equipped with wind deflectors and extendable draft stop.
