Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet

MERCEDES-BENZ is pitching its new S-Class Cabriolet as the open top car for the super rich with prices running to almost £200,000.

Even the entry level S 500 AMG Line will be priced from £110,120.

In all there are three S-Class cabrios in the range with the S 500 powered by a twin-turbo 4.6-litre V8 developing 455bhp.

That is followed by the Mercedes-AMG S 63 at £134,735.00 with a 5.5-litre V8 twin-turbocharged unit generating 585bhp while the range topping S 65 features a 6.0-litre V12 twin-turbo with an output of 630bhp and costs from £191,630.

The S 500 is no slouch. Mercedes says it can sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 4.6 seconds, while still achieving a claimed 32.5 mpg.

The S 63 can hit 62mph from standstill in 4.2 seconds, and the S 65 can reach the same speed in only 4.1 seconds. All three models are electronically limited to a top speed of 155 mph - this can be increased on the S 63 and S 65 to 186 mph with the optional AMG Driver's package which will set you back £2,760 and £765 respectively.

Mercedes is fitting out the cars to the highest level with the S 500 AMG Line including AMG body-styling; 19-inch alloy wheels; LED headlights with Intelligent Lighting System and Adaptive High Beam Assist Plus; AIRMATIC air suspension with continuously variable damping control; satellite navigation with COMAND Online system including dual 12.3-inch TFT displays; AIRSCARF neck-level heating; AIRCAP; comfort heated and ventilated seats with electric operation and memory function; heated rear seats; leather upholstery; intelligent climate control and even an automatic boot separator.
