Mercedes S-Class cabrio just about ready to drop its top
Joining the sedan, coupe and upcoming long-wheelbase Maybach and Pullman versions will be this four-seat cabriolet with a folding soft top, expected to arrive sometime next year. Though none of the S-Class' sedan rivals (like the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, Jaguar XJ and Lexus LS) offer convertible versions, the new S cabrio will do battle with the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, Bentley Continental GTC, Maserati GranTurismo Convertible and (to an arguably lesser extent) the BMW 6 Series and potentially with the next-generation Jaguar XK and upcoming Rolls-Royce Wraith convertible.
Expect the same portfolio of engines to carry over from the S-Class coupe, starting with the 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 in the S550 and potentially extending to V12 and AMG versions to follow.
