Video: Developing the Mercedes-Benz Ocean Drive, production likely

While the ending of the video says ‘whether this study goes into series production is an open question,’ one must think why Mercedes-Benz put so much work on creating a driving and working model of the Ocean Drive Concept.

It’s been reported before that Mercedes-Benz has given the Ocean Drive Concept, a four-door S-Class Convertible, the green light for production. Power is expected to come from a 5.5 liter V8 producing 510-hp with the range topper getting V12 producing up to 550-hp. A 6.2 liter AMG that produces 604-hp is also on the drawing board.

However, while many may think that the production Ocean Drive may take on the likes of an A7 convertible but we expect Mercedes to head a little up market setting its sights on Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. Nonetheless, expect pricing to be well below the $412,000 of the Rolls-Royce to lure buyers away from the Phantom Drophead Coupe.
