Mercedes-Benz is offering what can only be described as the dream car for true automobile fans – the S 63 4MATIC Cabriolet. This marks the first time in the brand’s 48-year history that it is offering a four-seater Cabriolet in the S-Class segment. This newest product is an appealing choice for those who are looking for luxury and performance. Traveling can be done in style for the driver and as many as three passengers.
The performance figures are amazing. It is powered by a 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine that delivers 430 kW (585 hp) and it has a peak torque of 900 Nm. It comes with AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque split as standard, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. Deceleration is optimized with the use of a high-performance composite brake system.
This vehicle offers a superior and dynamic performance due to its highly rigid bodyshell structure that features innovations like the luggage compartment bulkhead built using magnesium. A convertible’s design is typically heavier but the automaker compensated by using a lightweight lithium-ion battery.
It also has been equipped with AMG light-alloy wheels built with a highly advanced forging process as well as with the weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite brake system. Aluminium is what makes up big parts of the shell and the front section as well as the vehicle's rear end.
