The S-Class is one of the longest cars in the world and the S-Cabriolet will not be any different. It stretches for more than 5 meters and will be the largest convertible to be built, ever! The soft-top version will be based on the present, W222, version of the S-Class.

Mercedes will not skimp on accessories and luxury of the passengers though, it will get all the bells and whistles which the regular S gets. They might have leave out a few but they would be more than compensated by the looks and stares the car would attract.

Mercedes’ Magic Body Control will be employed here as well to keep body roll to a minimum. The car will also feature Magic Vision Control, COMAND ICE system, parking sensors with rear camera and a 12.3 inch TFT display. Being a convertible Mercedes does not mean you`ll get lots of outside noise inside the cabin, the company engineers will work day and night to keep the sound levels inside the cabin to a bare minimum, as you would expect in any Mercedes.

The car will be available in three trims, S500 cabriolet, S63 AMG cabriolet and a mad S65 AMG cabriolet. THe S500 will generate 455 hp and 700Nm from a 4.7 lit V8. The S63 will have a 5.5 lit V8 under the hood which will produce 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque. The insane S65 AMG will have a humongous 6.0 lit V12 to give 630 hp and 1000 Nm of max power and torque. The S500 should get all-wheel drive in markets with LHD.

The S-Class Convertible, or the A222, will most like debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next year but Mercedes may launch it a few months prior to that to cash in on the summer of 2015.
