UK pricing information for both the 2016 Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabrio and S65 Cabrio has been released.

The 2016 S63 Cabrio will have a starting price of £135,000 while its larger brother, the S65 will have a starting price of £192,000 in the United Kingdom.

As a reminder, the S63 AMG Cabrio packs a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine that can produce 585 hp (430 kW) and 900 Nm of torque. This allows for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of 3.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

The more powerful S65 AMG will get a 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine that is also seen in the SL65 and G65 AMG models. It is the first time that Mercedes will offer a V12 in a four-seater convertible and the S65 will join the S550 and the S63 in the S-Class Cabriolet series. It’s worth pointing out that Mercedes considers the S-Class Cabriolet a competitor of the Bentley Continental GT, thus it makes sense for the company to offer a 12-cylinder variant (the S63 gets a V8).

That being said, the engine generates an astonishing 630 hp and 1000 Nm of torque, allowing the convertible to go from 0 to 100 km/h time in just 4.1 seconds. Despite the drop-top, the convertible has a similar performance to the coupe owing to lots of weight-reduction steps taken by Mercedes.

The luxury cabriolet’s transmission will feature three individual driving modes and the AMG Speedshift plus 7G-tronic transmission makes sure power is transmitted to the rear axle. The three individual driving modes comprise controlled efficiency (C), Sport (S) and Manual (M).
