2017 Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet

There are three Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet models available – S500, AMG S63 and AMG S65. A 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine made by hand in Mannheim, Germany, good for 630 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque propels the S65.

Mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, this will rocket the big cabrio to 62 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds en route to a top speed of 186 mph.
The AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission offers a choice of three modes, Comfort, Sport and Manual.
Beneath the microfiber-lined fabric top, the S65 boasts a full-leather interior. Mercedes’ standard Airscarf, heated armrests, and Aircap wind deflector work to keep occupants comfortable.
AMG fitted the convertible with a sport-tuned air suspension, 20-inch wheels, optional carbon-ceramic brakes, ultra-shiny brightwork, and a lightweight lithium-ion battery to offset the weight of the massive output up front.
The S65 Cabriolet starts something north of $275,000.
