Mercedes kicks off S-Class Cabriolet production in Sindelfingen

After being revealed in September, the Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet has now entered production at the Sindelfingen factory in Germany.

Billed as being the first Mercedes-Benz open-top four-seater since 1971, the S-Class Cabriolet is the sixth member of the S-Class family and embodies the pure definition of luxury from Daimler. It can be had with several engines, all the way up to the V12 inside the mighty S65 revealed earlier this week. Daimler has labeled this as the most beautiful S-Class of all times and also the most exclusive.

It’s basically an S-Class Coupe with a three-layer acoustic soft top that can be operated in motion at speeds of up to 37 mph (60 km/h). Customers can get the fabric roof in black, dark red, and dark blue combined with a variety of colors for the body. As you can see, it seems the first five production-spec cars assembled come in a lovely white shade.

Mercedes will crack open the order books for the German market this month and will begin deliveries in the spring of 2016. Those who want the S65 crown jewel of the range will have to wait until April 4 to place an order and Daimler says this V12 version will hit dealerships from May. Full pricing details should be disclosed shortly.
