Mercedes Teases New S-Class Cabrio Before Frankfurt

Mercedes will, after some 44 years, show off an actual cabriolet version of the flagship S-Class. The S-Class Cabrio will be revealed at the Frankfurt auto show, but before then we can get a glimpse of it in the official teaser image.

Before this new model, the last actual S-Class coupe was built between 1961 – 1971. It was heralded as being supremely comfortable at the time, and wit this new one, Mercedes wants to build “the most comfortable cabriolet in the world.”

Obviously, being an open-top Merc, it also comes with the company’s patented Aircap and Airscarf systems; one shields the head with warm air, while the other does the same for occupants’ necks. Seat heating in the rear sounds like it’s going to be standard on every car, but it’s not exactly clear from the blurb accompanying the teaser…

These things are usually just fluff that bring no new information (a way for PR deparments to justify their existence), so we’ll have to wait until the motor show for full technical details. And even then they won’t release full details as those will be made available at the launch of the S-Class Cabrio, most definitely planned for the warm part of 2016 in a cliché location like the south of France or Spain.
