Mercedes Team Releases Details for the 2017 S-Class Cabrio!
Mercedes has finally announced details for the new S-Class Cabrio. The whole lineup can be purchased with three petrol units that are indeed the 4.6-liter V8 with 455hp (334kW), the Mercedes-AMG S 63 5.5-liter V8 twin-turbocharged unit with 585hp (430kW) and the flagship, S 65, a 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo beast, capable of producing a total of 630hp (463kW).
All this means that the overall performance rates are quite astonishing: the average 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint ends in about 4 seconds and the top speed of the vehicles varies between 279km/h (155mph) and 334km/h (186mph). Impressive, right?
Similar to its S-Class Coupe brothers, the S-Class Cabriolet units will also offer extended list of standard features. For example, the S 500 AMG includes AMG body-styling, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with Intelligent Lightning System and Adaptive High Beam Assist Plus system, AIRMATIC air suspension with variable damping control, satellite navigation with COMAND Online system, AIRSCARF neck-level heating, comfortable seats with leather upholstery and many more.
Also, the Driving Assistance pack (standard feature for the S 63 and S 65) includes a 360 degree camera, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Brake Assist System, DISTRONIC PLUS and PRE-SAFE PLUS.
There is also an optional AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber pack that includes carbon fiver (you don't say!) finish to the AMG front apron, exterior mirror housing and side sill panels.
Prices for the top-down beauties start from $155,500 USD.
