If you’ve been following D’Marge recently you will have noticed our love for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Today the German carmaker has released its flagship convertible from the same family.
Perhaps Mercedes-Benz are throwing the glove down to the likes of Bentley but this is the first open-top flagship from the company since 1971. Add the mighty AMG donk to the equation and you’ve got yourself a 430 kw twin-turbo 5.5L V8 that has a massive 900 nm of peak torque.
The S-Class Cabriolet’s other details include 4MATIC all-wheel-drive, AMG Speed-Shift 7-speed transmission, AIRMATIC air suspension, exhaust system with automatic exhaust flaps, and gas generated rollbars behind the headrest.
On the road you’re looking at 0-100 in about 3.9 seconds which is more than fast enough for the gin wives of Double Bay to get their daily shopping duties out of the way. Expect to see this beast released in 2016.
