Mercedes-Benz has recently announced the all-new 2015 S-Class Coupe, which replaced the well-known CL-Class. Of course, good ideas about reworking of the model started to emerge immediately. Here is one - S-Class Cabriolet materialized by the Malaysian designer Theophilus Chin. Of course, the project is based on the S-Class Coupe, which had its roof chopped and replaced by soft-fabric.
There is a new fashion in car industry to create Coupe-Cabriolets, which is very successful, but the hardcore fans of Cabriolets still appreciate to cloth roof rather than metal. There are no other differences except the possibility of altering the angle of the windshield. If the S-Class Cabriolet happens, it will be the biggest one ever produced from the German manufacturer. It will be also a direct rival of the spectacular Bentley Continental GT Convertible.
2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe was presented at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It is 5,027mm long, 1,899m wide and 1,411mm tall, with a 2,495mm wheelbase. The sales are expected to begin in the second half of this year. Initially only an S500 Coupe model will be available. It will be powered by a 4.7 liter V8 bi-turbo engine with 455HP (335 kW) and 700Nm (516 lb-ft). Of course, a lot other models are expected including the super-powerful S 63 AMG and the monster S 65 AMG with over 600HP and 1,000Nm of torque.
