If you are a fan of the Mercedes S-Class, but really want a drop top version rather than a closed top ride the order banks are now open. Mercedes is now taking orders for the S-Class Cabriolet. The car can be ordered in the S 500 version or the AMG S 63 4Matic in Europe.
The S 500 version gets a 4.7L V8 under the hood making 449hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. That pushes the car from naught to 62mph in 4.6 seconds. The AMG S 63 4matic version gets a 5.5L V8 making 577hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. That pushes the AMG version to 62mph in 3.9 seconds.
Both cars have electronically limited 155mph top speeds. The cars are offered with a wide range of standard features with automatic climate control, LED lighting, electronically adjustable front seats, and lots more. An Exclusive Package adds €7,924.40 to the base car or €5,902.40 to the AMG. It adds better leather and lots more. Pricing starts at €139,051.50 for the S 500 and €187,484.50 for the AMG. An even more potent AMG S 65 will hit order banks April 4, 2016 and pack even more power.
