Mercedes-Benz has another addition to the S-Class lineup on the way, a first since the W111 convertibles, last built in 1971. Yup, Mercedes is prepping an all-new S-Class convertible, to follow in the path of the S-Class Coupe and Sedan, which we already knew from rumors of the past.
Now though, Stuttgart themselves released a digital rendering of the new S-Class Convertible, essentially a current S-Class Coupe, formerly CL-Class, with its head chopped off.
Expected for a reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the new S-Class Convertible will be the first large convertible from the Silver Arrow in 40 years and should be available in all the flavors that the current S-Class line is available in. This includes the S550, S63 and even the S65 AMG versions.
Intended competition includes the Bentley Continental GTC, Aston Martin DB9 Volante, and the Maserati GranTurismo Convertible.
