Mercedes ’ much-needed C-Class Convertible is inching closer to production as the Stuttgart-based company continues testing the cabriolet throughout Germany. Scheduled to break cover at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the 2015 C-Class Convertible will be the first drop-top in the model’s 21-year history.
Our spy photographers recently caught the cabriolet C-Class stretching its wheels on public roads for the third time since September 2013. Things haven’t change much since May 2014, when the prototype was spotted testing with the same camouflage pattern covering its body, but a few new details suggest development is well underway.
Once it hits dealerships, the C-Class Convertible will join its sedan and wagon siblings, while waiting for the AMG-prepped versions to arrive. And yes, at some point, the convertible will benefit from AMG treatment as well, including the brand’s newly developed, 4.0-liter, V-8 engine and the enormous amount of power that comes with it.
