The new Cabriolet is the sixth variant of the current S-Class family and the first open-top luxury four-seater from Mercedes-Benz since 1971

It offers a distinctive, sensual and exclusive design, the cutting-edge technology of the S-Class and a comprehensive warmth and wind protection concept which includes intelligent climate control for convertibles

The elegantly sporty model will have its world premiere at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show

Also on show in Frankfurt will be a superlative dream car from Mercedes?AMG in the guise of the S 63 4MATIC Cabriolet

Its 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine offers an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and peak torque of 900 Nm, AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque split as standard and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds

“After 44 years we are once again able to offer Mercedes aficionados an open-top car in the S-Class

The new S-Class Cabriolet symbolises our passion for individual and timelessly exclusive mobility, which we share with our customers”, remarks Ola Källenius, Board Member of Daimler AG, Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales

The new S-Class Cabriolet is exceptionally rigid

Innovative solutions such as the luggage compartment bulkhead made of aluminium and magnesium as well as the aluminium rear floor also lower the bodyshell weight to the level of the S-Class Coupé

The standard-fit roll-over protection system behind the rear head restraints features pyrotechnic initiation of the actuators for the first time, in addition to which the roll bars themselves are moved into position by a gas generator

“Two years after its launch, the S-Class family is now complete

We have never offered six models in the luxury class before – and never before have we enjoyed such success”, says Prof

Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development

“The S-Class sets the pace on the global market when it comes to safety, efficiency and comfort

“Mercedes-Benz lays claim to building the world’s most comfortable convertible

When it comes to climate comfort, the enhanced automatic wind protection system AIRCAP, the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, the heated armrests, the seat heating also in the rear plus the intelligent climate control ensure that this is indeed the case

In contrast to conventional systems, the climate is controlled fully automatically

This means that the driver does not need to select a mode for closed or open top, nor is it necessary to save a temperature setting for these driving conditions
