2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS rendered as a Coupe, Cabriolet and in AMG guise

During the recent 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, one of the few cars that stood out would be this 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS that made its debut. Because it turned heads, it has inevitably become a favourite among rendering artists.

Some of them may just be for the hell of it, like the Coupe and the Cabriolet. The newest one looks actually quite promising. Imagined by artist Aksyonov Nikita, is a four-door coupe in the range topping AMG guise.

Up front, some of the noticeable changes would be the new bumper and the modified grille that includes the AMG badging. The rear end, on the other hand, gets a new bumper, carbon fiber diffuser and a boot lid spoiler, as well as quad tailpipes.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet is certainly a premium convertible that many desire. Of course, it would be nice if customers could create their ideal E-Class Cabriolet according to their taste and preferences.

The E400 Cabriolet has a starting price of $66,300 and comes powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 329 hp (245 kW) of max output and 354 lb-ft (479 Nm) of peak torque. The two-wheel drive E400 Cabriolet could sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. On the other hand, the E400 4MATIC Cabriolet comes with base price of $68,800.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet now available at US dealerships, priced from $66,300

Mercedes-Benz just made an announcement that the 2018 E Class Cabriolet has finally landed in the United States. If you had not known, the E Class will be positioned in between the C and the S-Class convertibles. In fact, the E Class is being marketed as a luxury drop top that will have both a pure, elegant design, with long distance comfort just enough for four occupants.

As its name suggests, it will have a number of similarities with an E Class Coupe, except it will feature a fabric soft top in several colour options like black, red, dark blue, and dark brown. No matter which colour the customer selects, all of them will have the same feature, which promises to reduce both wind and road noise. It is fully automatic with sophisticated insulation that cuts down wind and noise when driving on the highway. In only 20 seconds, the top can fully be opened and closed, while traveling at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour (48 kilometers per hour). The roof then folds into a compartment in the trunk after opening.

Aside from the convertible fabric roof, the E Class Cabriolet comes with remarkable options including a heat reflecting leather upholstery, an Aircap wind deflector, as well as an Airscarf neck level heating system.

Polestar 1 high-performance hybrid coupe is rendered as a convertible by X-Tomi

Very recently, Polestar unveiled its very first production model in the form of the Polestar 1 high-performance hybrid coupe. Yet, there are already people who are wondering how a Polestar 1 would look like once it transforms into a convertible. Imagining such could be hard, so a rendering by graphic artist X-Tomi could provide some help.

X-Tomi had actually rendered the Polestar 1 coupe as the Polestar 1 shooting brake or estate wagon. This version of the Polestar comes with a full-length roof and a rear end similar to a hatchback. In a way, the Polestar 1 shooting brake would allow Polestar to offer a unique mix of performance, range and practicality. It looks gorgeous too.

Now, X-Tomi didn’t stop at the shooting brake rendering. He chopped off the roof, the B- and C-pillars, and then added some features that we would usually find in a convertible. With a couple of visual changes, X-Tomi managed to render the Polestar 1 convertible with an exterior that is wrapped in a midnight blue finish and an interior in black.

When Mercedes-Benz unveiled the face-lifted or updated sedan (or saloon) version of the S-Class for the 2018 model year, the carmaker stunned the public with new front and rear fascias, new grille design, new engines and an array of innovative technologies. Of course, it was expected that Mercedes-Benz would also update the coupe and cabriolet versions of its flagship model.

Now, the German carmaker is officially confirming those updates with the face-lifted 2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe and 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet models. Both new models will be formally unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

As expected, the updates on the 2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe were more or less the same as the extensive tweaks implemented on the 2018 S-Class Saloon. For instance, the new S-Class Coupe is provided with new or functionally extended driving assistance systems, integrated Energizing comfort control and the latest infotainment generation.

Mercedes-Benz is introducing the face-lifted 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet, along with the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. Official unveiling of the 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet is scheduled to happen a week from now at the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The introduction of the updated S-Class Cabriolet was well-expected after Mercedes took the wraps off the face-lifted S-Class Sedan or Saloon earlier this year. Compared to its predecessor, the new S-Class Sedan offers a new appearance, new dynamic feeling and new levels of comfort and convenience. This is thanks to a number of changes like new front and rear fascias and new grille design as well as new engines and a host of innovative technologies.

Just as expected, the updated 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet Facelift features more or less the same changes as that made on the 2018 S-Class Saloon. For instance, the new S-Class Cabriolet comes with new or functionally extended driving assistance systems, the latest infotainment generation, integrated Energizing comfort control as well as a new generation of steering wheels. The S-Class Cabriolet also features a modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit.

A few months ago, Mercedes-Benz promised that they will be treating everyone to a “big surprise” during the Monterey Car Week. And true enough, many of us were stunned as they unveiled the all electric Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet convertible version of the hardtop model that made its debut at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last year.

Just like an art piece, this model is no doubt a head turner just like its predecessor. The Vision 6 Cabriolet stretches out to nineteen feet in length, and it sits on 24-inch wheels. Its hood appears extra long, while the tail tapers uniquely to a certain point. The front fascia gets a huge grille finished in chrome, which contrasts with the slim headlights. Mercedes actually refers to the rear end as a “boat tail”, complementing the Nautical Blue Metallic name for the exterior finish.

The Vision 6 Cabriolet’s interior completely stands out from the exterior. The two-seater cabin is finished in a clean white interior with silver accents - from the seats, the dashboard, to the steering wheel. The center console gets a wing-like “flowing” design that is given an ambient blue lighting around the elements, as well as the door panels. The illuminated dots around the seats all have tiny backlit Mercedes logos.

Remember the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet that made its debut back in November 2016 at Los Angeles Auto Show? Yup, that’s the upscale version of the already luxurious S65. A few years ago, Daimler revived the Maybach nameplate to do a collaboration with Mercedes’ S-Class Sedan. The result was an extra-long super high-end sedan, looking all muscular, but at the same time, sensual.

Ever since then, Mercedes and Maybach have launched a couple of special edition vehicles, including the limited edition G650 Landaulet, where only 99 units were built. Alongside that was the S650 Cabriolet that is limited to 300 units.

It seems like the 300 units they were planning to build have already been built. Images online show dozens of the Mercedes Maybach S650 Cabriolet parked outside the Brabus headquarters in Bottrop. These images were posted on a German website Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog. And sources say that these beauties, painted in ivory, were made by the three-pointed star logo, and the 621 horsepower cabriolets are being upgraded by Brabus to their necessary specifications.

The 2017 Shanghai Auto Show was dominated mainly by crossovers but that doesn't stop Mercedes-Benz from stepping out with a cool new update for the S-Class. During the event, the German automaker has also showed off the much anticipated Concept A Sedan, its first ever small four-door A-Class model with a coupe-like rear end.

If there’s more, Gorden Wagener, Mercedes’ head of design hinted about its latest design language during last week’s exhibit. In a statement, Wagener said that the design era of creases has finally reached its end. With that being the case, we’ll be seeing lesser lines and more rounded surfaces on their upcoming models. Sounds very promising isn't it?

Mercedes-Benz as we know, is looking to expand its current compact car lineup following the successful launch of the GLA, the CLA Shooting Brake, the CLA, the B-Class and the A-Class models. If ever, the new Concept A will be Mercedes Benz’s answer to Audi’s A3 Sedan and the BMW 1 Series. Taking its cues from the latest AMG GTs, the Concept A is also seen to represent Mercedes’ upcoming smaller car range. Still, how about a convertible version of the A-Class? This was rendered by Aksyonov Nikita and honestly, it looks amazing.

Green lovers of all ages, rejoice! Edo competition modified a Porsche 911 Turbo S and made it look astounding! Third party tuner companies thrive on clients wanting to further modify their automobile. So whether it’s the car's paint, hood, exhaust, wheels, these tuners got it all covered, with a fee of course. These customers flock to the big players like Kahn Design, Startech, Onyx Concept and Arden to further aesthetically modify their rides to their hearts content, even if it means dishing out some cold, hard cash.

Things got more interesting when Edo Competition, Stuttgard's finest, took on the Porsche 911 Turbo S and made it into a Green Mean Machine - turning everyone green with envy everywhere it went. There were not a lot of tuning companies who knew the Porsche releases inside and out quite like Edo Competition. The namesake founder of this company, Edo Karabegovic, worked at a Ferrari shop for three good years and afterwards toiled on race cars for around 8 years. To him, the experiences working around race cars piqued his interest more and more, and one day decided to start up his own tuning company.

Customizing the Porsche 911 Turbo S is quite a feat, and making it stand out is just legendary. Edo Competition gave the sports car an all exclusive look-- splashed it with green and gave it the moniker "PTS Oliv- Green 274". The modifying company exclaimed that this one-of-a-kind color is the "first in the world". The super car is also fitted with Black alloy wheels and bright yellow calipers to further enhance the car's body color, and it sure is working to their liking.

TechArt’s latest project, the Porsche 911 Turbo itself, is a pretty awesome car to own. And it’s not only because of its powerful engine, and beautiful exterior design. However, some people just can’t get enough of what is already in the market. What do I mean by that? The German automobile tuner came up with an even more extravagant design, sans roof, calling this version the GTstreet R Cabriolet.

Some of the highlights of this car in terms of performance are its powerful engine with the capacity to deliver 720 horsepower (or 530 kilowatts) and 678 pound feet torque, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in a mind-blowing 3.5 seconds, while proceeding to its maximum speed of 340 kilometers per hour (211 mph) -- that is even faster than a 911 Turbo.

The wonders of this car don’t end there. It has an adjustable rear wing just like the one on a GT2 RS that can tilt up to 15 degrees for an added downforce, allowing the car to travel faster. In fact, this model has the ability to produce 707 pounds (321 kilograms) of downforce at 186 miles per hour (300 mph) - this was proven when it was tested in a wind tunnel. These are made possible by its new aerokit that features an active spoiler lip, carbon front fenders, and carbon side skirts.

Brabus will be hitting this week’s most happening auto show with a powerful 641bhp C63 Cabrio. The after-market tuning company has earned its reputation in the industry for having tuned Mercedes-Benz cars for four decades. Its latest project, the new Brabus 650 Cabrio, is based on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet.

The drop-top 650 Cabrio receives a powerful boost of up to 138 hp –resulting in its highly impressive 650 horsepower and 604 pound feet of torque. Brabus modified its standard 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine so it can accelerate from 0- 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 200 miles per hour. The conversion consists of Brabus PowerXtra B40S and 2 turbochargers with larger compressor just to name a few.

Normally, a standard Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet comes with 502 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The hefty amount of powerful boost wouldn’t be possible if not for the recalibrated electronics and new turbochargers fitted under its hood. To do this, Brabus replaced the factory specified AMG turbocharger with its own turbo charger units. The tuning house has also upgraded the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet’s ECU and got rid of the 155 mph limiter to allow its 650 hp run up to 200 miles per hour at top speed.

The convertible version of the 2018 Mercedes E-Class is basically the 2018 Mercedes E-Class Coupe with its roof chopped off. Add some modifications, including the compartment storage for the soft top and we now have the 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet.

On the other hand, Mercedes will be launching a special edition of the E-Class Cabriolet that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Mercedes 300 CE-24 Cabriolet – the first Cabriolet in the E-Class family.

As part of the Volkswagen Group, SEAT and Audi have access to each other’s products. This means that if SEAT wanted to, it could take on some models of the German premium carmaker and re-badge them as its own offerings. This has happened before, when the Spanish carmaker took on Audi’s A4, made some modifications and rebadged it as the SEAT Exeo.

There is a possibility that SEAT could do it again, but with another vehicle that’s part of Audi’s lineup. SEAT could build on the Audi A5, whose new generation has just been unveiled. That said, SEAT would be able to offer the coupe and convertible versions of the Audi A5 as its own models.

But before we wonder how the new Audi A5 coupe and cabriolet would look like when transformed into SEAT models, we could take a good look at the renderings made by visual artist X-Tomi. These renderings virtually spell out Audi A5 – both the coupe and convertible versions – but with certain visual modifications that identify them as vehicles from SEAT. These modifications are mostly found on the front end of the SEAT Salsa models – the moniker given by X-Tomi. These tweaks include the grille found in SEAT’s new models, the SEAT badge and logo.

German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz will commence deliveries of its new 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe in March, after introducing this luxury sports car in December 2016 and unveiling it at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show in January. But just as Mercedes starts deliveries of the E-Class Coupe, it will also unfurl the fifth and final member of the range at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March – the new open-air 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet.

Currently, the new E-Class family is made up of four models – Sedan (including China-only long wheelbase saloon), Estate, Coupe and All-Terrain. The addition of the Cabriolet model will finally complete Mercedes’ E-Class lineup when it is formally unveiled for the global public at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet should look similar to the coupe version. In fact, this drop-top model is the lone 2018 Mercedes E-Class Coupe without the hard roof, plus it comes with a number of modifications to accommodate the drop-top. In this setup, the 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet allows drivers and passengers to enjoy open-air driving and riding experience. It should also be as long and as wide as the coupe version with dimensions of 4,826 mm in length and 1860 mm in width.

As expected, four years after the current generation of the BMW 4 Series was introduced in 2013 with the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the German premium carmaker is implementing a Life Cycle Impulse.

This is also known as a mid-cycle refresh. BMW gave the 3 Series an FCI in 2016, and this year it is the turn of the 4 Series.

What is good about this mid-cycle update is the fact that BMW is refreshing not only one model of the 4 Series, but all of them. BMW has revised the 4 Series Coupe, 4 Series Convertible, 4 Series Gran Coupe and the M4 for the 2017 model year.

The latest members of the new-generation Audi A5 family have touched down at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. The new 2018 Audi A5 Cabriolet and S5 Cabriolet are making their North American debut, with an aim to spice up their appeal to the premium vehicle market in the United States.

These new Audi models include the new generation of the A5 and the S5, but without the hard top. Prior to the introduction of these models, Audi’s new generation A5 lineup seemed incomplete. Their arrival signals the availability of open-air driving and riding experience in the A5 family. Both the A5 and S5 Cabriolet are provided with a fully automatic top with one-touch opening function. This soft cloth top could be opened and closed -- with just a touch of a button -- in just 15 seconds and 18 seconds, respectively, at speeds of up to 31 mph. When opened, the top folds into three layers and stores itself in a tray located below the luggage compartment.

Basically, the A5 and S5 Cabriolet are the same, with the difference mainly centered in their engines, thus their on-the-road performances. Thus, the S5 is considered as the steroid-boosted A5 sans the muscles. Acting as the heart of the A5 Cabriolet is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 252 hp of output and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, this engine allows the A5 Cabriolet to zoom from zero to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds.

How much are you willing to spend to get a new Porsche 911? Let’s admit it -- a Porsche 911 is not cheap, even if it is more than 50 years old already. Now one of the first 13 prototypes Porsche 911s is up for auction at the upcoming event by RM Sotheby’s in Paris, France on February 8, 2017.

Yes, this is not just any other Porsche 911. It is more than a classic; it is already an icon. Aside from being one of the original Porsche 911s, the classic car up for sale in February is also the first ever 911 Cabriolet. Built between 1963 and 1964, this 911 Cabriolet – with chassis #13360 -- is one of the two surviving originals. With an age of around 53 years old, the 911 #13360 is also the oldest 911 Cabriolet.

Let us dabble with some Porsche 911 history. Prior to 1963, Porsche determined that it was already time to replace the Porsche 356. So, it commissioned Karmann to produce 13 prototypes of the successor model. These prototypes were eventually named as Porsche 901, and one of them was this 911 Cabriolet in concern. Interestingly, this car and its hardtop siblings weren’t known as the 911 back then, but as 901. In fact, when the 356 successor was unveiled in the at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, it was presented as the Porsche 901.

How would a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet look like once German tuner Carlsson does its work over this premium car? Well, the people at Carlsson got a Mercedes S 500 Convertible and gave it a number of modifications that it referred to as the Diospyros package.

One of the most glaring revisions made on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet is the exterior color wrapping its metal sheet. Diospyros is wrapped in a light mint green color that Carlsson has dubbed as "Carlsson Heritage Green." This modern mono-color paint, which was developed by Carlsson in collaboration with Standox color specialists, produces a golden shimmer when it is exposed to sunlight.

This Carlsson Heritage Green is accentuated by a piano lacquer finish in multiple parts like the car’s grille and bars. Another visual revision made on the Diospyros could be seen on the front end of the car – a diamond grille with Carlsson’s stallion logo.
