Mercedes-Benz s550 Cabriolet, the S-class Cabriolet is biggest and most indulgence among all five models of cabriolets. There are more models in offer, but the standard S550 with 449 horse powers twin turbo V8 and rear wheel drive is most of the representative of its class. The lack of its sports pretensions is substituted with luxury of the flowing lines, proportions and elegant presence. In short this is one big, bold and beautiful vehicle, made for comfort and pleasure.
From its standard all-LED exterior and multicolor cabin lighting to its available chrome-tipped diamond-block grille, the artfulness and advancement of the S-Class Cabriolet shine with equal brilliance. Even more captivating by day or night, the headlamps can be accented with genuine Swarovski® crystals that make every move a grand entrance.
Its front seats can offer a “hot stone” massage while you rest on heated armrests. Its Air Balance system can ionize the cabin air for summer-storm freshness, and then infuse it with aromatherapy.
Along with its highly rigid body, advanced restraints, the S-Class literally raises the bar for cabriolet safety: Its dual pop-up roll bars were pioneered by Mercedes-Benz. Same goes for its Intelligent Drive system of driver assists. A 360-degree network of cameras, radar and other sensors can help get you out of danger before you’re in it.
