So as we recently told you, Mercedes-Benz announced that the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Convertible has been confirmed for production. Consequently, it’s time to begin speculating how this range-topping convertible will look!
The following renderings have been put together by Remco Meulendijk and have been based off the sleek Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept. In addition to removing the hardtop and replacing it with a fabric softtop, this car has received some inevitably production-ready changes from the concept. These include a slightly more subdued rear fascia, different wing mirrors, alloy wheels and modified exhaust pipes.
When the S-Class Convertible hits the market, it will become the first drop-top S-Class since the W111 Cabriolet which sold for a decade from 1961. Under the hood, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Convertible will be available with a selection of twin-turbo V8 and V12 engines.
