A convertible version of the S-Class will launch before the end of this year, according to Autocar, although Mercedes isn’t saying exactly when it will show up.
An appearance at either the Geneva or New York auto shows this spring, could allow Mercedes to put the car on sale in time for convertible-friendly summer.
On the other hand the bi-annual Frankfurt show in September is often used by the German brands for prestigious debuts like this one.
The S-Class convertible probably won’t differ greatly in styling or equipment levels from the S-Class Coupe, so just picture one of those with its roof hacked off.
Big luxury convertibles aren’t unheard of, after all, but it’s been awhile since Mercedes has offered one based on its flagship model.
There has never been a convertible version of the modern S-Class, although Mercedes did toy with idea with the 2006 Ocean Drive concept – a four-door convertible that would have been hilarious if it actually made it into production.
The upcoming S-Class convertible will be a bit more conventional, but should still hold appeal for sun-worshipping One Percenters.
